VIPTELA SD WAN

Viptela SD-WAN built on the Viptela Fabric is a purpose-built solution from ground-up to provide secure, scalable, resilient WAN and with optimal user experience for applications for a Cloud-ready enterprise.

SD-WAN

SD-WAN provides a secure hybrid overlay technology virtualizing the enterprise WAN with centralized management and control. SD-WAN cuts WAN costs by 50%, increases bandwidth 10X, eliminates outages, and expedites the deployment of cloud, IoT and other IT projects.

Viptela brings enterprise-grade Software-De ned WAN (SD- WAN) technology to address the problems of modern enterprise applications of today and tomorrow.

Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) is an overlay architecture that overcomes the biggest drawbacks of traditional WAN. SD-WAN builds a secure, unified connectivity over any transport (MPLS, Broadband, LTE, VSAT etc.) and provides simplified operations with centralized management, policy control and application visibility across the enterprise.

Gartner estimates that by the end of 2019, 30% of enterprises will use SD-WAN technology in all their branches, up from less than 1% today. This is because SD-WAN is a transformational approach to simplifying branch office networking and optimizing performance. However, security is a critical factor for SD-WAN adoption, especially for cloud and Internet applications.

Key Principles

Viptela SD-WAN solution builds an overlay fabric which is carrier agnostic as well as transport agnostic. Customers get a consistent WAN built on any transport like MPLS, Broadband, 4G/LTE, VSAT and more. Viptela solution secures connectivity over all of these transports to build a secure overlay network. See Viptela Solution Overview

Separate of Control-plane and data-plane

Viptela SD-WAN provides a clear separation between management-plane, control-plane and data-plane.  This allows each component to work independently and efficiently. It also enables scaling of the different components based on the needs of the network.

Zero-Turst Security

This is my last theme

Viptela SD-WAN is built based on the zero-trust model. All of the components mutually authenticate each other and all of the edge devices are authorized before they are allowed into the network. Every packet across data-plane, control-plane and management-plane that flows through the network is encrypted using SSL and IPSec technologies. Viptela solution has unique differentiated capabilities to build a large-scale IPSec network across tens of thousand of branches.

CLOUD DELIVERED

Viptela SD-WAN is Cloud delivered. All of the controllers are hosted in Viptela cloud and customers can login to the Viptela dashboard to centrally manage the WAN. Viptela vManage provides the ability to manage all aspects of the WAN from provisioning, monitoring and upgrading routers to application visibility and troubleshooting the WAN. See Demo of the Cloud Delivered Viptela Fabric

Security and Segmentation

As more and more devices are internet connected and as new applications get rolled out in an enterprise branch, it becomes extremely critical for enterprises to isolate different types of traffic to avoid any threats coming out of different networks. Viptela’s SD-WAN provides fine-grained granular segmentation capabilities to segment various applications & users. For example, IT can create separate segments for Guest WiFi,  PCI traffic, Business applications,  Inventory applications, Video surveillance as well as voice calls.
