Critical Links’ edgeBOX certified with Intel server platform

Critical Links announced that its flagship product, the edgeBOX, is now certified on the Intel Modular Server platform through the Intel Enabled Server Acceleration Alliance (Intel ESAA) program

Critical Links, a global provider of converged voice, data and IT solutions for SMBs, announced that its flagship product, the edgeBOX, is now certified on the Intel Modular Server platform through the Intel Enabled Server Acceleration Alliance (Intel ESAA) program.  This state-of-the art solution offers a broad feature set and an unprecedented level of fault tolerance while addressing the increasingly important concern of service assurance. With edgeBOX and the Intel Modular Server platform based on Intel Multi-Flex technology, SMBs have access to a class of communications/IT infrastructure that was previously confined to enterprise competitors with larger IT budgets.

As a member of the Intel ESAA program, Critical Links is able to provide its revolutionary edgeBOX solution on the Intel Modular Server platform. The Intel Modular Server platform has support for up to six hot-swappable Intel Xeon processor-based compute modules and features integrated storage and networking. The edgeBOX software includes a wide range of capabilities such as full-fledged VoIP, VPN, security, storage and collaboration services. 

“The edgeBOX, in combination with Intel’s Modular Server Platform, eliminates the need for SMBs to make the traditional trade-off between simplicity, cost and capability,” said Abdul Kasim, Vice President of global marketing and business development, Critical Links. “We are excited that our membership in the Intel ESAA program has enabled us to successfully challenge existing paradigms and essentially change the game in the SMB segment. With the extent of its redundancy and scalability, the Intel Modular Server ensures continuous availability of features delivered by the edgeBOX. This translates into a compelling business advantage for today’s SMB.”

“The Intel Modular Server platform provides powerful scalability and redundancy,” said David Brown, marketing director of Intel Enterprise Platforms and Services Division. “Critical Links’ membership in the Intel ESAA program allows them to deliver their edgeBOX software on Intel hardware for a powerful value-added proposition for small and medium sized businesses.”
