Nokia has partnered with Asavie to use its SD Edge mobility solution to extend the reach of the Nuage Networks SD-WAN 2.0 solution.

"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,” said Sunil Khandekar (pictured), founder and CEO of Nuage Networks.

“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. IT managers can focus their management policies on end users, no matter the devices they are using, ensuring they enjoy a seamless and consistent experience, which they’ve come to expect from Nuage."

Using Asavie’s SD Edge mobility solution extends the reach of Nuage’s SD-WAN 2.0 solution to include enterprise mobile and IoT devices.

As a result, mobile users can seamlessly and securely connect to enterprise clouds and applications without having to use VPN clients on their devices, across private and public cloud and Software as-a-Service.

“The partnership with Nuage Networks is an opportunity to lead a redefinition of how mobile and network security can be made simpler and better for enterprise CIOs with a unified management and improved security and user experience.” said Ralph Shaw, CEO at Asavie.

In addition, enterprise IT teams have seamless end-to-end virtualised network visibility and control via centralised policy and control for mobile access as the rest of the enterprise users and devices based in physical branch offices.

It will also provide managed communications service providers with a new and innovative way to deliver their fixed and mobile broadband networks to enterprises as a fully integrated, end-to-end managed network service.

“Managed service providers have had success delivering SD-WANaaS to enterprise customers and our research shows strong market growth in that segment,” said Ray Mota, CEO and principal analyst at ACG Research.

“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 up sell opportunities for service providers to deliver business value to their enterprise customers.”
