The VadEDGE range of single platform devices enable effective communication at the edge of the enterprise network. As an example with VadEDGE, mobile, regional and remotely located teams are able to access voice and data communication channels available within their organisation's headquarters and beyond.

Delivering specialist communication solutions

The VadEDGE platforms supports a wide range of protocols and physical interfaces. This enables customers to aggregate and effectively deliver multiple service streams over almost any bearer communications medium including GSM, PSTN, ISDN, Serial, IP, Fibre, Ethernet and Satellite (VSAT).

Combining voice (analogue and/or digital) with data services such as FAX, IP, PoS support, the VadEDGE efficiently and cost effectively manages bandwidth through dynamic packet fragmentation and compresses whilst ensuring Quality of Service.

The VadEDGE devices are deployed where flexible and robust communications is essential and in strategic and tactical applications. The products offer intelligent communications routing, multiplexing or protocol translation. With other Ultra Communicate and Ultra Encrypt products from AEP, the VadEDGE provide wide area and satellite networking in remote territories with a high level of security.
