See John implement an SD-WAN in minutes, easily bringing cloud networking to a branch location. With Nuage Networks VNS, policy-driven network automation is your secret weapon.
First generation SD-WAN solutions offered a means to enhance wide area network automation that lowered operational costs, increased network agility, and provided application level visibility and control between the physical branches of the enterprise. But with the move towards digital transformation and the adoption of cloud native IT systems, this level of networking is no longer enough.
The acceleration of digital transformation in the enterprise has driven the expansion of the wide area network to include both the physical branch locations and the virtual compute and application locations in the cloud; all with seamless and consistent management, visibility and control.
With Virtualized Network Services (VNS) from Nuage Networks enterprises will benefit from a second generation, SD-WAN 2.0, solution.
The New Enterprise Challenges in the Cloud Era
The Multicloud Challenge
Enterprises need a single end-to-end SD-WAN solution that provides a flexible multicloud capability allowing them to program the use of compute from multiple network sources to meet their application needs.
Enterprises need an SD-WAN solution that is ready to scale for the deluge of 5G and IoT-enabled devices and industrial systems that require advanced 5G and edge compute networking.
The Security Challenge
Enterprises need an SD-WAN solution that can protect their network from within its perimeter by implementing SW-defined security measures for each application across the entire network.
The Branch Virtualization Challenge
Enterprises need an SD-WAN solution that can provide a holistic approach to securely managing the connectivity of VNFs and their host uCPEs from the same governance model.
How SD-WAN 2.0 Solves these Challenges
Seamlessly Connect Your Clouds
SD-WAN 2.0 provides a seamless end-to-end “overlay” network or abstracted forwarding plane that can intelligently interconnect private data centers (DCs), SaaS clouds, public clouds, and branch locations from a single governance model. This end-to-end overlay depends on having a seamless underlay transport network beneath it, which may consist of various diverse transport segments like IP/MPLS links, internet broadband, or even mobile transport options like 3G.
Massive Scale with Consistent Performance
SD-WAN 2.0 is built from the ground up using the Service Router Operating System (SR OS). SR OS is proven worldwide as the world’s leading service routing OS and when leveraged for SD-WAN it will scale and grow enterprise networks without performance degradations. SD-WAN 2.0 provides massive scale in the dimensions of branches, L2 and L3 VPN tunnels, and application support.
Secure Your Network Infrastructure
With SD-WAN 2.0, IT managers will benefit from a single network governance model to program software defined security policies that span private data centers (DC), public clouds, and branch locations. Leverage real-time application traffic flow visibility, apply comprehensive end-to-end micro-segmentation and support for third-party security functions, program dynamic threat responses to proactively ward off security threats before they happen.
Virtualize Your Network
With SD-WAN 2.0, IT managers can leverage the same infrastructure and governance model to host and manage third party VNFs on Nuage Networks Network Services Gateway family of uCPE devices. Leveraging service chaining techniques the network can be programmed to ensure that each application packet flow receives the precise service treatment it needs to optimize network performance and application SLAs.
