MEF recently announced that Nuage Networks from Nokia was one of the first technology vendors certified to support MEF 3.0 SD-WAN services. This certification enables technology vendors to validate the conformance of their products and services against the industry-leading SD-WAN Service Attributes and Services (MEF 70) global standard. It also enables enterprise buyers to identify whether the SD-WAN product or service that they are considering conforms to these industry-standard attributes or c [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
Many organizations, even those not typically associated with technology, are migrating to the cloud. This trend is growing because the cloud offers increased flexibility and agility. Last year, 89% of the enterprises adopted public cloud, and 71% a hybrid cloud model.
With this mass migration, organizations have more segments to manage and more potential blind spots in their networks. Organizations also need to ensure compliance and security policies are extended to public cloud workloa [...]
Coming out of last months Dockercon conference, a number of interesting trends are taking shape on the container networking front. SDxCentral reported on the push to standardize one of a couple of container networking models, called CNI, here. Standardizing networking and orchestration in the container space will really help take the technology mainstream and build a healthy ecosystem of technology providers. It might be a good time to provide a little history and context to these standardizatio [...]
More and more organizations are looking to apply software defined networking (SDN) concepts across their enterprise WAN, beyond the cloud and data center, to improve network and application performance while reducing the management overhead across remote sites and branches. While having a software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) can provide a myriad of benefits to both service providers (on-demand VPN offerings, e.g.) as well as enterprise customers (for their own branch network management), there is one p [...]
This week Nuage Networks released a white paper validating compliance of our latest 4.0 release with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). PCI DSS requires merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit cardholder data to adopt information security controls and processes to ensure consumer protection. As the payment processing chain undergoes rapid evolution as more and more transactions migrate online, while major processing infrastructures migrate to shar [...]
