May 20, 2019

When networks become steeped in complexity, as they are with legacy WANs, the last thing companies need is more manual processes. Tedious and monotonous configurations, and the lifecycle management of many single-function devices, are time-consuming and costly. This burden not only adds potential risk due to human error, but complicates network operations, managing bandwidth, local breakouts, QoS policies and deployment timeframes. These factors, among others, are driving the need for network virtualization, automation and software that manages network infrastructure based on business policies to accommodate digital transformation initiatives. An effective way to simplify tedious network configuration tasks and avoid unnecessary…

According to the Avant Communications 2019 Cloud Channel Survey, conducted by Edge Strategies, having next generation cloud services in the solution providers’ portfolio seem to enable them to sell more data and voice services. The top four services that Avant’s Channel Partners expect to sell in two years are Data Networks (39%), UCaaS (67%), SD-WAN (61%) and Security-as-a-Service (45%) – with 5G and Managed IOT emerging as areas to watch for in the future. The intersection of cloud, SD-WAN and SD-Security among high growth solution providers, gives great context to the release of Versa Titan by Versa Networks. Versa Titan…

SD-WAN continues its rapid growth, as enterprises look to simplify WAN infrastructure and provide new services that help them compete in today’s software-driven environment. Software and automation are the leading technologies that will drive IT and networking systems to support business-critical operations and strategic initiatives. While enterprises have been the primary benefactors of SD-WAN, the trend is moving toward the consumption of networking and security as managed services. In fact, IDC predicts SD-WAN managed services will soon out-pace do-it-yourself (DIY) SD-WAN, and grow to $5.4 billion by 2022. This follows a similar direction that enterprises have taken, moving from internally…

Sensor, telematics and actuator technologies are developing at an unprecedented rate. This trend is due, in large part, to the exponential growth of IoT, and increased sensor accuracy, reduced size, cost and the ability to detect and measure things that weren’t previously possible.  In fact, sensor technology has become so advanced, IoT devices already far outnumber users, with billions of IoT devices already deployed, and billions of new sensors expected to be deployed each year. In our quest to make connected things perform more efficiently and with more enhanced features, we have to make them, and the connectivity ecosystem, smarter. Actually, to enable…

Why You Need a Centralized Network Monitoring and Management System

  Contextual Visibility: WAN-Security Monitoring Gartner estimates that the average cost of network downtime is around $5,600 p/minute, which extrapolates to well over $300K p/hour. A fairly scary number, we have to admit. And to scare you further, here is a video we dug out about the massive business impact of a downtime. IT leaders and CIOs acknowledge the importance of constant network monitoring and a more centralized approach to network management and monitoring. As a result, most enterprises will also boast of a network management and monitoring tool in place. However, as digital transformations and disruptive technologies like cloud…

Building a Secure Architecture for the Enterprise Edge with SD-WAN

Typically, WAN solution vendors talk about performance in terms of speeds and feeds. But, I like to think about performance as it relates to all aspects of connectivity. This includes speed, control, visibility, reliability, ease of deployment and monitoring, and of course security. I think about it in these terms because each of these areas are controllable by the right holistic SD-WAN architecture. Unfortunately, the accumulation of multiple disparate routing and switching devices, including firewalls, intrusion detection and threat mitigation, makes it difficult to obtain network visibility and correlate real-time events that can degrade or disrupt performance. With Secure SD-WAN,…

SD-WAN – A Public Cloud Networking Renaissance?

December 15, 2017

An Excuse for a Blog Recently, Versa Networks participated in the AWS integration testing performed by the ESG Group that culminated in their recently published buyer’s guide for SD-WAN solutions in AWS.  The timing of this test was perfect as it coincides with increased customer interest in both hybrid and multi-cloud solutions. The timing was perfect for another reason:  Versa has been adding quite a bit of innovation around native integration with various public cloud environments, but these tend to make sense to folks employed by “born-in-the-cloud” employers, where Python and JSON, not BGP and OSPF are the main job…

SD-WAN Clears the Path for VoIP Traffic

Voice over IP (VoIP), or IP telephony, has been widely available since the early 1990s, when the concept of transmitting voice as data packets across the internet became a reality. Early VoIP systems suffered from packet loss and jitter, resulting in conversations that sounded as though the caller was speaking through a moving fan—if the call wasn’t dropped altogether, of course. Luckily, VoIP technology has improved to the point where it has now become a commodity service for most companies. According to one research firm, the VoIP services market is expected to reach more than US$140 billion in 2021. Other…

WAN optimization technologies have for years been the go-to solutions for improving enterprise application performance across the WAN. The WAN is changing though, and traditional WAN optimization technologies may soon not be enough on their own. The rise of software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) provides enterprises with greater control over WAN operations, promising more efficiency and effective application management across the entire corporate WAN infrastructure. Traditional WAN optimization technologies aren’t about to disappear of course, but the challenges presented by the current — and future — state of the WAN beg for more than basic application optimization. That’s where SD-WAN technologies can…
