Nuage Networks SD-WAN 2.0 Now Supports Enterprise Mobile and IoT Devices with Asavie Partnership
The edge has been a topic of conversation for some time, but talk is cheap. From fog to SASE, digital transformation is putting words into action. Technologies like SD-WAN are enabling transition, but it only extends to a point. With remote work serving as the new norm, requirements are evolving, and SD-WAN providers are seeking to deliver a strong response.
Nokia’s (News - Alert) Nuage Networks announced the expansion of the Nuage Networks SD-WAN 2.0 solution to now include enterprise mobile and IoT devices courtesy of a new partnership with Asavie (News - Alert) and its SD Edge mobility solution.
Sunil Khandekar, founder and CEO of Nuage Networks, noted, “With the rapid increase in remote working and mobile professionals caused by COVID-19, the Asavie SD Edge mobile connectivity service is a great addition to the Nuage SD-WAN 2.0 enterprise offering.”
With increasing pressure placed on the edge providing a secure, reliable remote access to cloud applications and services is critical. For service providers, the pairing puts power in the portfolio, offering a fully integrated, end-to-end managed network service. For the enterprise, centralized policy management empowers IT with end-to-end virtualized network visibility and control.
Ray Mota (News - Alert), CEO and Principal Analyst at ACG Research explained, “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.”
Managed service or DIY, it’s important to have the right technology partners along the way. COVID-19 declares uncertainty, but connectivity keeps operations moving forward.
