First generation SD-WAN solutions (SD-WAN 1.0) have focused on delivering automated IP connectivity and WAN management across different transport types.
These deployments were primarily constrained within the WAN itself and overlooked the end-to-end aspect of service delivery. Since then, enterprise IT needs have rapidly shifted to accommodate multi-cloud capabilities, leading to many models for enterprises to consume cloud services. This environment has created a new set of require [...]
The compelling second paragraph of the United States Declaration of Independence starts as follows: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal…”. While this is true for humanity it most definitely does not hold true for the various SD-WAN solutions that are available today.
SD-WAN offerings up to now have been provided by vendors within three general groups:
legacy vendors who are attempting to pivot from their core competency,
pure play vendors who [...]

Note: This is part 1 of a 3-part blog post on Nuage Networks release 5.0.
2017 began with key wins – BT, Telefonica, and Telia, among others - followed by a healthy stream of Service Provider and Enterprise wins. No less important, 2017 was also a year with a major product milestone in form of the Nuage Networks VSP 5.0 software release. Maintaining Nuage as the leading provider of SDN policy-based automation for the data center (DC) and the wide area network (WAN), the 5.0 release introduc [...]
We’re taking another step towards making the Nuage Networks Virtuoso Certification Program (VCP) the industry’s premier SDN certification with a major release of courses, exams and other learning materials in early 2018.
Some of the new course material we’re introducing includes the VNS Operations course (available early Q2) and updates to existing courses, with a focus on new platform capabilities such as VSS (Virtualized Security Services) and many more. In Q3 of this year, we will al [...]
Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) technology provides many benefits compared with traditional approaches to building networks on private infrastructures or by building network overlays manually. Greater control and the ability to easily integrate with cloud services through application awareness, automated policy control, value added services, and zero touch secure provisioning, and other capabilities, allow operators to build more dynamic and powerful networks faster than ever before.
I have recently returned from the MEF17 event in Orlando, where Nuage Networks received several awards for its leadership in SD-WAN as well as a Proof of Concept (POC) award for demonstrating tremendous deployment flexibility across a multi-vendor environment. We often tout the flexibility and openness of our VNS solution and this POC was a great testament to that.
In this POC, Nuage Networks joined forces with Telia along with Kvantel, Cisco, OneAccess, and RAD Communications to showcase the [...]
