As the mobile workforce grows, users require access to corporate resources from different types of networks and an increasing variety of devices. Ensuring secure and fast application performance for remote users is a key challenge. BIG-IP Edge Gateway is an accelerated remote access solution that brings together SSL VPN, security, application acceleration, and availability services. With industry-leading security and acceleration, BIG-IP Edge Gateway can help you deliver peak performance levels to users accessing applications located anywhere, regardless of the user's location or device.
Many access clients interrupt worker productivity by requiring constant reconnection as users move locations or restart applications. BIG-IP Edge Gateway works with an optional client, BIG-IP Edge Client, to offer advanced roaming, domain detection, and automatic connection. Users on the move achieve seamless access and continued productivity when transitioning between locations and networks. In addition, BIG-IP Edge Gateway has expanded its access to an IPv4 and IPv6 mixed environment. This ensures business continuity for your organization during the evolution of the Internet.
With asymmetric and symmetric acceleration, remote users can access applications up to 10x faster than without acceleration. You can apply intelligent caching and adaptive compression, hardware acceleration of DTLS, and more to further improve data downloads and achieve LAN speeds. BIG-IP Edge Gateway also supports acceleration over an IPsec site-to-site tunnel, giving you the flexibility to replicate data between data centers over the Internet instead of the expensive WAN.
By unifying access and acceleration services on a single, optimized device, BIG-IP Edge Gateway simplifies and centralizes management tasks to help you reduce CapEx and OpEx costs by up to 75 percent. BIG-IP Edge Gateway can support VMware View, Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop, and Microsoft RDP in parallel, as well as other technologies such as Mac and Linux with a Java RDP client for a quick virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) option as requirements dictate, without adding more point appliances. BIG-IP Edge Gateway provides up to 12 Gbps of SSL VPN throughput, 1600 logins per second, and 60,000 concurrent users, so you can scale cost effectively as your mobile workforce grows.
