Untangle SD-WAN Router is a lightweight network edge appliance that can be deployed either with Untangle NG Firewall to provide a Software-defined networking solution for multi-site offices, or on its own to optimize network performance.
Untangle SD-WAN Router optimizes the network to accelerate performance of specific applications, boosting the speed of a regular broadband internet connection to get the performance of more expensive internet options.
In typical deployments, the appliance manages multiple WAN links and VPN tunnels by actively monitoring each link to identify the optimal route for each new session. The link priority and routing decision for each new session is based on multiple factors such as the type of application, the source or destination IP address, real time loss, latency and jitter metrics, and the available bandwidth of each link.
A lightweight firewall is built into Untangle SD-WAN Router that performs block/allow rules and traffic recognition.
You can deploy Untangle SD-WAN Router as a hardware appliance, virtual appliance, or docker container. You can administer Untangle SD-WAN Router from the local network or remotely using Untangle’s central management platform named Command Center.
