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 [...]
This is part two of a three-part blog post describing Nuage Networks' single-platform approach for the software-defined DC and SD-WAN. Read part one here.
Nuage Networks is the only vendor to provide true end-to-end seamless connectivity and policy across the DC, WAN, and Public Cloud.
The first blog addressed SD-WAN, which covers SD-WAN Beyond Connectivity and Advanced Networking with SD-WAN.
This second blog addresses SD-WAN and DC, which covers Security and Analytics for DC & WA [...]
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 [...]

Nuage Networks continues to build momentum across Greater China for software-defined infrastructure for the data center cloud, as well as the WAN. Recent deals, and the increasing size and scope of cloud deployments, show that China is taking a leadership position in rolling out SDN/ SD-WAN, and taking advantage of the network automation that solutions from Nuage Networks can deliver.
Today, we announced that China Mobile (CMCC) selected Nuage Networks’ Virtualized Services Platform (VSP) t [...]
At the OpenStack Summit in Barcelona one of our trail-blazing customers – BBVA bank – showcased how they are leveraging the Nuage Networks Virtualized Cloud Services (VCS) solution to deliver next-generation infrastructure provisioning services using OpenStack on top of Kubernetes.
The video recording of this talk – called “Next Generation Overlay for Kubernetes and OpenStack” is available here.
Using their extensive experience with [...]

Last week Nuage Networks participated in Network Field Day (NFD12), a bi-annual tour of leading networking experts and bloggers through Silicon Valley and San Francisco catching up on the latest and greatest trends in cloud networking and security. The event was streamed online, but for those that missed it, the recordings of the presentations and demos, and the slides themselves are captured below.
We made several new announcements and previewed some upcoming features, so it’s well worth pa [...]
On a bright spring day just three years back we found ourselves in Portland, at the rapidly growing OpenStack Summit. ONUG had also just been formed, an organization that would grow just as rapidly in its appeal and influence. Open was the way, and the game was on. “I don’t care that it’s SDN. I care only if it solves my problem in an open way,” asserted one of the pioneers of the ONUG community repeatedly as wave after wave of “SDN-washing” rippled around him. The industry was certa [...]
This week Nuage Networks is attending the Palo Alto Networks Ignite Cybersecurity Conference in sunny Las Vegas. Security policy orchestration in cloud networks has become a leading use case for SDN overlay networks, and we are showing off our capabilities with Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Next-Generation Firewalls along with Mirantis OpenStack cloud orchestration. The end result is a highly scalable, easily managed, secure infrastructure for large enterprises, service providers and carrier grad [...]
