The Network Cloudification Era Is Here!
The growth in cloud adoption coupled with digital transformation has placed increased demand on today’s network, in many cases exceeding the capability of existing network infrastructure, much of which was designed and built based on legacy technology that is simply no longer fit for purpose.
As the network transformation continues, we have arrived in the Network Cloudification era (Edge Cloud, CNFs and Automation) resulting in network capabilities and operational requirements that can be characterised as:
- Data Driven
Coupled with this complexity, network domains, users, devices, bandwidths are exploding.
Delivering the Benefits of SDN and NFV
The core principles of SDN and NFV have been widely adopted and are now delivering in the form of specific solutions that are capable of addressing the needs of the modern network. At Iricent, we have taken the detailed knowledge and capabilities gained from years of in-depth SDN and NFV focus and are applying these to a range of solutions for customers who need the flexibility and agility required to deliver on their transformation strategies.
Solutions For Enterprise
- SD-WAN (Software Defined Wide Area Networking): a networking and applications management solution with software-based control
- SASE (Secure Access Service Edge): a framework for network architecture that brings cloud native security technologies, e.g. SWG, CASB, ZTNA, and FWaaS together with SD-WAN to securely connect endpoints to applications and services anywhere
Solutions For Service Providers
- Network Automation: where software automatically configures, provisions and manages network devices to improve efficiency and lower Opex
- uCPE (universal Customer Premises Equipment): a software-defined form of traditional customer premises equipment (CPE) that resides on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) white-box hardware. The network functions that would run on legacy hardware-based CPE are replaced with software in the form of virtual / containerised network functions (VNF/CNFs).
