Nuage Adds Mobile, IoT to SD-WAN, Claiming Industry First

Virtualization Review | April 17, 2020

Nuage Networks partnered with Asavie to add that firm's mobile/edge technology to its SD-WAN offering, claiming it's the first such solution to support desktop, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Asavie, with corporate headquarters in Ireland, claimed an industry first itself when it earlier this month announced Asavie SD Edge, described as a self-serve mobile SD-WAN, extending SD-WAN and private enterprise networks to mobile and IoT endpoints. Adding that tech to Nuage Networks' SD-WAN 2.0 solution will reportedly enable mobile users to connect to enterprise clouds and applications without having to use VPN clients on their devices during the current remote work surge caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
