Today, organizations are experiencing a digital transformation . As WAN networks are clearly the central nervous system of organizations, this transformation affects two facets of WAN networks. Firstly, their growth and delocalization , together with new ways of working, make them increasingly geographically diversified, leading to increasing numbers of remote and mobile users . Secondly, the way to access information and applications, which is increasingly done by accessing third-party cloud-based services , and which all offices access directly, meaning that corporate traffic is no longer star-shaped as it has been until now, and corporate links are becoming meaningless. This makes traditional WAN architecture obsolete when confronted by a new, more agile and affordable model.
SD-WAN is the answer to the demands organization are making of their communications networks . Teldat’s implementation of this technology not only offers you the opportunity to access all its capabilities, but also allows you to do it flexibly and gradually, in line with what your customer really needs or can manage.
It is a new form of network implementation through a single platform , allowing IT managers to reduce complexity and operational costs , without sacrificing full functionality, security and reliability.
Different companies have different needs and, in line with the modular design concept, Teldat’s SD-WAN solution can be adapted to new requirements at any time through Cloud Net Manager (CNM). This is an interface software at the heart of the solution, allowing customers to contract a basic solution that can grow in capacity by adding functions and services as required.
This is the management platform’s main component and holds the intelligence of the WAN. It is responsible for integrating different networks into a single platform. CNM Base can scale to support a very large number of nodes and works in high availability mode. Depending on user needs, it can either be installed in the public cloud or in the user’s own data centre as a Virtual Appliance.
This module allows you to automatically configure your office devices in a process known as Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP). Given the critical nature of this process, CNM Provisioner provides extensive tracing options and supports traditional and full-SDWAN scenarios. It relies on a secure connection based on certificates to guarantee the reliability of the communication channel used by the CNM Base.
CNM Visualizer gathers and displays information about application-level traffic, allowing you to have full visibility of the usage users make of services, applications and network capacity. All collected data is presented in a unified, high-level monitoring view – which you can expand to see a single user, and ideal for troubleshooting and decision-making processes.
CNM Controller is the ultimate layer to align business drivers with corporate network performance. It facilitates network configuration through a graphical interface designed to enhance application performance through the configuration of prioritization rules, WAN selection algorithms and user group in combination with plain internet lines an MPLS.
This platform adds your own or third-party functionality to the standard SD-WAN solution in order to increase its power. For example, you can include WAN optimization, networked storage or additional security features - all without affecting the net data throughput.
The world is continually changing and evolving, and so are businesses and their needs. So our customers can master current challenges and take their companies one step further, Teldat recently launched the third version of its SD-WAN solution: Cloud Net Manager (CNMv3). This new solution offers a more modern user interface with brand-new responsive design features, allowing it to adapt to different screen types and sizes for use with any device.
Thanks to a new microservices-based computing, the new CNMv3 solution also supports the concept of projects for network management. Customers can use individual templates and configure networks independently of other networks.
