Riverbed SteelHead solution is designed to accelerate delivery of applications across the hybrid WAN, speeds the performance of cloud applications by overcoming the combined challenges of bandwidth limitations and latency on the WAN.
The combined solution provides on-demand interconnection between branches, branches and data centers, and branches and the cloud, delivering application-level network-wide intelligent path selection, smart acceleration, open universal computing gateways and cloud-based visualized operations and maintenance.
Huawei said its AR1600 series and AR650 series open universal computing gateways support the on-demand deployment of Huawei and third-party VASs such as vFW, vWoC). This enables flexible orchestration and automated delivery through Huawei’s Agile Controller so that they can be provisioned in minutes, claims Huawei.
