Amdocs announced that it is supporting Comcast Business’ commercially available software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) service.
Comcast Business SD-WAN combines secure IP-VPN, application-aware routing, and a stateful network firewall. This software-defined service is delivered over the public internet via a carrier-class IP-backbone, leveraging Comcast’s broadband and fiber-based connectivity solutions. With Comcast Business SD-WAN on its ActiveCore software defined networking (SDN) platform, customers can augment or replace their existing network with an alternative providing bandwidth, reliability and flexibility. With firewall-secured, branch-level internet connectivity to a public cloud, Comcast Business SD-WAN accelerates performance across the enterprise data network and can reduce the cost of backhauling data traffic through corporate data centers.
Comcast Business’ SD-WAN offering leverages Amdocs leading NFV portfolio. The Amdocs NFV portfolio brings agility to service providers including orchestration, fulfillment and automation capabilities while integrating a wide array of virtualized service functions from a vibrant partner ecosystem, said Amdocs.
