VeloCloud Networks, a cloud-delivered SD-WAN (software-defined wide area network) company, this week announced that it has successfully exceeded all Open Networking User Group (ONUG) SD-WAN tests. This extensive testing process, which lasted three months, was conducted by Ixia, an independent network testing service, in conjunction with ONUG. The ONUG tests aim to provide proof of concepts, feature validation and demonstrations to ensure that the networking solutions in the network overlays, SD-WAN and network services virtualization areas deliver on the top 10 requirements developed by the ONUG Working Groups.
According to VeloCloud, the ONUG use-case validation testing is the first time that commercial SD-WAN solutions have been tested against requirements outlined by the ONUG Working Groups. The company said that by performing beyond ONUG SD-WAN test criteria, VeloCloud gives organizations the confidence to adopt a secure Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN solution in their network deployments. VeloCloud claims that its solution provides key advantages for enterprises, including Application aware dynamic traffic engineering, physical or virtual form factors and Zero touch deployment and operations.
