New VMware SD-WAN release 4.2.2
VMware/VeloCloud SD-WAN Release 4.2.2 provides new hardware platform and some new feature enhancements for Windstream.
New Hardware Platforms
The following new hardware devices are now available:
Edge 510N (Replaces Edge 510)
Edge 610N (Replaces the Edge 610)
Edge 620N (Replaces the Edge 620)
Edge 640N (Replaces the Edge 640)
Edge 680N (Replaces the Edge 680)
These new “N” devices possess the same functionality as the models they replace, except they do not have Wi-Fi capability. With the ever-increasing shortages and difficulty in obtaining the Wi-Fi components, it was putting a strain on the supply chain and to circumvent this, VMware pro-actively started to build device that did not need the Wi-Fi components, therefore alleviating the supply chain concerns.
- Hot Standby for LTE
- What is Hot Standby:
- With Hot Standby, the Wireless LTE is still in backup only mode, but the tunnels are pre-built, so the LTE failover is near instant, vs. the typical 30 seconds or more in regular Standby only mode.
- There are no additional charges from SD-WAN perspective, but please be aware this will add additional billing usage for the LTE plan, there is approximately 800 MB of LTE “keep alive” usage monthly, in addition to any normal usage when the LTE is active.
- Once the primary link service is restored, the Hot Standby would revert to Hot Standby mode as backup
Fully Qualified Domain Names (FQDNs) can now be used in destination match criteria when creating Business rules or Firewall Rules (Like youtube.com or facebook.com).
- Advanced configuration option to add Stateful Firewall protection against attacks; Ping of Death, TCP Land, Invalid IP and Denial of Service (DoS).
The Windstream Enterprise Community is a community of real people who collaborate on answers, solutions, and ideas about the Windstream Enterprise products and services they use. We invite you to become a member, but we do have a few rules. For everyone's sake, we are committed to enforcing these guidelines, as well as our community vendor's Terms of Service.
People will respect you more, engage with you more often, and treat you like a real person if you use your actual identity here. While not mandatory, it does help us identify accounts when we try to provide answers to specific questions.
We are into transparency, honesty, and truth. Do not misrepresent yourself or lie about your identity, affiliations, or age. Our community is based on the contributions of real people who put their reputations on the line. Be one of them.
Have (Good, Clean) Fun
We encourage the spirit of fun, so long as it does not hurt other people. Please do not use jokes, words or images that come at the expense of others. Be sensitive to other users around you, and do not post profane, sexual, or violent material.
Be Constructive with Your Criticism
The idea here is to foster healthy conversation and debate without ever attacking anyone personally. We take all questions, suggestions, and feedback seriously and will respond accordingly and so should you.
Spread the Wealth
Make our community a richer place by sharing your experience and insight. You may have the perfect answer to someone else's burning question. This is the substance of the Windstream Enterprise Community.
It is okay to talk up the products or services you love (or sell), but only if it is relevant to the conversation. If you are here to plant a ton of links to your Web site without doing much else, your posts are likely to be removed by a moderator.
Do Not Wrongfully Post Content
Make sure you have the right to publish any content you post to the Windstream Enterprise Community, and do not violate the privacy of others.
Be Fruitful, but Do Not Multiply
Do not create multiple accounts to violate these guidelines, game the system, or harass and deceive other users.
Trolls are users whose primary goal is to disrupt the community, attack other users, antagonize community managers, and are never interested in a productive outcome. If you engage in troll behavior, we will ask you to leave the Windstream Enterprise Community.
