The Nokia unit will use Asavie’s SD edge mobility to extend the reach of Nuage Networks SD-WAN 2.0 to offer SD-WANaaS.
The SD-WAN solution will now include enterprise mobile and IoT devices so that mobile users can securely connect to enterprise clouds and applications without needing VPN clients on their devices.
This includes across private and public cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS).
Enterprise IT teams can use the same centralised policy and control for mobile access as the rest of the enterprise users and devices based in physical branch offices.
The partners said their combined solution will ensure that enterprise users have a consistent and secure connectivity experience using any device, whether in the office or on the move.
Ray Mota, CEO and Principal Analyst at ACG Research, said: “Managed service providers have had success delivering SD-WANaaS to enterprise customers and our research shows strong market growth in that segment.
With this extension to the Nuage SD-WAN 2.0 solution, leveraging the Asavie SD-Edge, service providers will be able to expand their offering to reach mobile users and IoT devices as well as desktops in branches.
This new solution from Nuage and Asavie creates a much bigger addressable market and upsell opportunities for service providers to deliver business value to their enterprise customers.”
Sunil Khandekar, Founder and CEO of Nuage Networks, said: “With the rapid increase in remote working and mobile professionals caused by COVID-19, the Asavie SD Edge mobile connectivity service is a great addition to the Nuage SD-WAN 2.0 enterprise offering.
“It extends the power and simplicity of SD-WAN to include mobile devices, which means all the power of the Nuage policy-driven approach and none of the hassles associated with managing VPN clients on disparate mobile and IoT devices.
