PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Netsocket, 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 wait.
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 beyond that of traditional site-by-site-managed networking solutions. 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 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 Ethernet & SDN EXPO.
