The combination of SD-WAN & SASE based on Netology Smart Edge
The combination of SD-WAN and SASE based on Smart Edge solves the two main challenges: It provides the capacity to offer carrier grade quality of services on top of any combination of network underlay (LTE, MPLS, Broadband) and it provides a robust and simple integration of those services on a branch form factor fully integrated into their back-office system with a rich variety of functions.
The Netology Smart Edge solution is an open platform that enables Choice and avoids Vendor Lock-in. You have the freedom to select the SD-WAN solution that best suits your needs or matches your existing deployment. We can onboard many different SD-WAN solutions and either manage the solution or have it managed by your existing team.
SD-WAN (Software Defined Wide Area Networking) technology enables organisations to shift from traditional WAN (Wide Area Network) deployments to an optimised network that utilises the benefits of cloud, 4G/5G, direct internet and the corporate network/MPLS.
By integrating SD-WAN as a virtual edge on Netology Smart Edge environment, customers can now reap the benefits of SD-WAN and virtualization, all while reducing the IT footprint at the branches. Customers can deploy a SD-WAN and other VNFs on a single Smart Edge Appliance using Netology centralise orchestration.Traditional SD-WAN deployment is rooted in fixed-function with the specific vendor which eventually trap you in vendor-lockin situation.

SD-WAN is a software-based network technology that delivers virtualized resources to wide area network connections over both ordinary broadband Internet and private links. Applying the concepts of software-defined networks to WANs, SD-WAN abstracts traffic management and monitoring from network hardware and applies them to individual applications.
