Nuage Networks aims to bring data centers and enterprise branch offices closer with SDN-powered virtualized network services.

Announced at the 2014 Alcatel-Lucent Technology Symposium, Nuage Networks’ Virtualized Networks Services (VNS) aims to extend the benefits of policy-driven network automation and application-friendly abstraction to branch locations.

Nuage Networks said VNS can increase the speed of deployment of new sites by a factor of ten, while reducing operational expenditures by over 50%.

The product can utilize both corporate WAN and internet access bandwidth to increase the range of application deployment options and reduce cost without compromising visibility and control.

Nuage Networks VNS uses an end-to-end policy framework that spans from datacenters to branches, and a simple provisioning model for open CPE and network services across any cloud or network infrastructure.

“We are excited about this latest innovation from Nuage Networks,” said Pascual de Juan, Global Head of Innovation in Technologies at BBVA Digital Bank.

“Extending SDN network automation capabilities to BBVA cloud regions will allow us to turn up and adapt our network services in a far more timely and efficient way, streamlining operations and improving our agility by automating network connectivity and services in a policy-based fashion that aligns with our business objectives.”
