Nokia’s Nuage Networks has formed a technology partnership with e-Qual, a French hybrid network services provider, to provide SD-WAN services in over 60 countries worldwide.
This service is based on the Nuage Networks VNS solution and is managed independently of underlying enterprise WAN services. e-Qual’s enterprise customers will have a single consistent management interface for all their operations, with complete flexibility to manage their own connectivity, including branch access over the public internet.
According to Nuage Networks, over 75% of enterprises are moving their operations from private data centers to the cloud. Many of their branch operations now rely on the public internet for WAN connectivity. The Nuage Networks SD-WAN solution provides e-Qual’s customers with a managed service platform for unified control and management of their global network operations — cloud, headquarters, branch offices and remote users — independent of the WAN services used.
The Nokia Nuage Networks VNS will provide e-Qual with automation, improved flexibility, application-aware routing and per-application security. The solution provides e-Qual’s customers with a fully-managed SD-WAN service with a self-service VPN portal to quickly and securely connect branch employees with central cloud-based applications and services, worldwide.
