Netsocket Announces Virtualized Networking Solution Optimized for the Distributed Enterprise
PLANO, Texas --(Business Wire)--
a technology leader in virtualized, software-defined networking, today
announced their Netsocket Virtual Network solution aimed at providing
the efficiencies and cost advantages of virtualized networking
specifically for enterprise campuses and distributed office LAN and edge
networking environments. This announcement includes the availability of
the Enterprise Edition of NVN vNetCommander orchestration application.
Most software-defined networking (SDN) solutions on the market today are
focused on providing functionality for the data center and metropolitan
area networks (MAN) leaving distributed environment deployments in the
Today's data center centric SDN solutions simply do not address the
underserved distributed enterprise use case requirements. They lack
necessary functionality such as flexible logical addressing, inter-site
quality of service and diverse off-net access per site. Netsocket fills
this void with the Netsocket Virtual Network (NVN), a flexible,
low-cost, centrally managed virtual network optimized for the enterprise
LAN and WAN edge network deployments. Deployed on commodity x86 servers,
this virtualized solution significantly reduces lifecycle CAPEX/OPEX (News - Alert)
beyond that of traditional site-by-site-managed networking solutins.
Immediate benefits include CAPEX savings of 3:1 and OPEX savings of 5:1
over single-purpose, hardware-based legacy networking solutions.
The NVN is comprised of a three-tier SDN architecture - providing
end-to-end virtual networking, centralized orchestration and automation,
and superior interoperability and integration with legacy routed
networks as well as higher-level management systems such as Microsoft (News - Alert)
System Center. The Netsocket Virtual Network interconnects enterprise
branches in just a few minutes, with no networking expertise required at
the site. Its switching and routing components are automatically
deployed and provisioned to each branch office using the centralized,
intuitive network management application vNetCommander. Utilizing its
robust, web-based GUI, the vNetCommander is designed to handle automated
deployment, installation, configuration and orchestration of virtualized
networks all from a centralized console.
"One of the advantages of NVN for distributed enterprises is that it
facilitates an extremely low risk and low cost path to try SDN
virtualized networking and to evaluate the benefits," said Fletcher
Hamilton, president and CEO of Netsocket. "There is so much hype in the
SDN world that it's hard to know what solutions are really ready for
prime time. By implementing SDN first at a branch location, a solution
like NVN can be seamlessly proven interoperable and operational within
your existing network in just a few hours. This allows an enterprise to
easily separate the hype from the facts."
Netsocket Virtual Network is available today, and the NVN Distributed
Enterprise Solution will be demonstrated in the Netsocket Booth #360
this week at Interop New York City/Light Reading (News - Alert) Ethernet & SDN EXPO.
