Unlocking SD-WAN 2.0 with Virtualized Network Services

Transforming enterprise networks into a secure, programmable, and unified infrastructure to accelerate and optimize business

Enterprise applications are proliferating and their workloads are rapidly shifting to various private and public clouds. When combined with increased user mobility and advances in IoT and 5G, a significant strain on the network and the teams that deliver them is created. Adoption of a sound, multicloud capability as part of a digital transformation business strategy demands a dynamic, secure, flexible and scalable network that can rapidly adapt to the application needs of an enterprise business.

Virtualized Network Services (VNS) from Nuage Networks was purpose-built from the ground up to address these challenges by offering SD-WAN 2.0

Support multicloud

SD-WAN 2.0 unifies networks with an agile platform that flexibly adapts to any enterprise multicloud environment. A policy-defined network platform that has been architected and optimized for private and public cloud and any-to-any communication.

Scale the network

SD-WAN 2.0 supports massive scale regardless of size and complexity. Thousands of locations, hundreds of applications, 5G enabled users and things, public and private clouds? No problem. SDWAN 2.0 was built from the ground-up to scale for future enterprise business growth.

Secure the network

SD-WAN 2.0 secures users, data, applications and network resources within the network perimeter. Visualize all applications and program software-defined security with automated remedial actions across the entire network.

Virtualize the branch

SD-WAN 2.0 makes the network an open platform that enables enterprises to virtualize the services that they need while providing the management and infrastructure support required.

VNS SD-WAN 2.0 Product Architecture

Virtualized Services Directory

The Virtualized Services Directory (VSD) is a programmable policy and analytics engine. It provides a flexible network policy framework that enables network administration teams to define, apply, and enforce business policies across the network service in a user-friendly manner. The VSD also offers a multi-tenant enterprise portal that enterprise customers can use to visualize, configure, maintain their network.

Virtualized Services Controller

The Virtualized Services Controller (VSC) is the industry’s most powerful SDN controller. It functions as a centralized and robust network control plane for the network services, maintaining a full view of the network and service topologies. Through the VSC, virtual routing and switching constructs are established to program the network-forwarding plane

Network Services Gateway

The Network Services Gateway (NSG) constitutes the network-forwarding plane for VNS. The NSG encapsulates data traffic, enforcing Layer 2 to Layer 4 network policies as well as establishing Layer 2 or Layer 3 overlay VPNs as defined by the VSD. The NSG family also supports built-in Wi-Fi access as well as LTE uplink as well as other inherent built-in advanced services.
