ADVA Optical Networking

SD-WAN is one of the hottest and fastest growing technologies in networking today. The growth opportunities for communication service providers (CSPs) and the cost savings for enterprises make it one of the most attractive innovations the industry has seen in a long time. The benefits are so attractive the both enterprises and CSPs are scrambling to deploy SD-WAN solutions immediately. In fact, the opportunities are so great that companies are deploying proprietary and monolithic SD-WAN solutions that don’t fit into their preferred cloud-centric approach, just to get something out there.

Our Ensemble SmartWAN is an open virtualized networking platform for deploying and managing virtual SD-WAN and other NFV services at scale. It enables CSPs and enterprises alike to deploy SD-WAN in an automated and virtualized fashion. Now, CSPs have an open, vendor-neutral platform to help them evolve their virtualized service offerings. We’re giving them the freedom to offer virtual SD-WANs and best-of-breed VNFs from any supplier.
