Nokia venture Nuage Networks has released a managed network connectivity solution for desktop, enterprise mobile and IoT devices in partnership with Asavie, the company announced.
Integrating Asavie’s SD Edge mobility and Nuage’s SD-WAN 2.0 (Software-Defined Wide Area Networking) offering, the managed service lets remote users connect to enterprise cloud and applications without having to install and use a VPN.
CIOs gain more visibility over mobile users and IoT devices and can implement the same security policy as in physical locations. IT managers can securely connect to the physical branch, to public/private cloud and SaaS services across the enterprise network, from a remote location.
The integrated offering secures user interaction with any device in the office or remotely. The companies say that it ensures end-to-end virtualized network visibility and control and helps managed communications service providers deliver fixed and mobile broadband networks to enterprises as a fully integrated, end-to-end managed network service.
The offering “extends the power and simplicity of SD-WAN to include mobile devices, which means all the power of the Nuage policy-driven approach and none of the hassles associated with managing VPN clients on disparate mobile and IoT devices,” “said Sunil Khandekar, founder and CEO of Nuage Networks, in a prepared statement. “IT managers can focus their management policies on end-users, no matter the devices they are using.”
“Managed service providers have had success delivering SD-WANaaS to enterprise customers and our research shows strong market growth in that segment. With this extension to the Nuage SD-WAN 2.0 solution, leveraging the Asavie SD-Edge, service providers will be able to expand their offering to reach mobile users and IoT devices as well as desktops in branches. This new solution from Nuage and Asavie creates a much bigger addressable market and upsell opportunities for service providers to deliver business value to their enterprise customers.”
