Anuta Networks, the industry’s first provider of network services virtualization solutions, today announced significant enhancements to its NCX, an industry-first software solution designed to deliver agile and secure SDN benefits for large enterprises and service provider networks, and also designed to work with the security platform of Anuta’s technology ecosystem alliance partner Fortinet, Inc. (NASDAQ: FTNT). These latest enhancements enable service providers to introduce self-service and network automation to their customers and reduce overall service delivery time.
Anuta Networks’ NCX solution is breaking the industry barrier to on-board new customers without significant delay and costly expenses by automating the service delivery for MPLS tunnel-based, service provider backbone network. Traditionally, on-boarding new VPN customers required multiple weeks to plan, design and implement. With the help of NCX, on-boarding new VPN customers can be completed in a few minutes. Additionally, NCX automates the provision and de-provision of new CEs for existing customers.
“Service providers and large enterprises face a key challenge of service orchestration for their multi-vendor networks. In order to solve this, the industry has to come together and created platforms and open frameworks that can address these problems with the right solutions. In my 15+ years of experience in the industry, we are now moving from silo architectures into open and flexible platforms and architectures. I am very pleased to see that Fortinet and Anuta Networks have collaborated to provide such a platform for KPN to evaluate. We look forward to similar collaborative activities with vendors in the future,” said Clements Radenborg, program manager for same day delivery at KPN Networks.
“We’re very excited to empower service providers with a comprehensive SDN solution that delivers self-served network services for MPLS backbone networks,” said Chandu Guntakala, founder, president and CEO of Anuta Networks. “Many leading service providers around the world are selecting the proven Anuta NCX solution to introduce network services on-demand at low cost and high assurance.”
“Anuta Networks and FjordIT are bringing innovative Network Services offerings to the Nordic Markets. At Fujitsu Norway, our key focus in bringing new technologies that can help customers achieve more efficiency and reliability in managing their networks. We are looking forward to our collaborative approach and partnership in bringing this key technology to our enterprise customers,” said Tor Arne Rømma, Sr. Network Architect at Fujitsu Norway.
The new NCX enhancements include:
- Multi-vendor end-to-end Ethernet, MPLS L3VPN and L2VPN services including E-Line & E-LAN (VPLS)
- Orchestrate PE-CE connections with different IGP protocols such as RIP, EIGRP, OSPF, ISIS and BGP
- Orchestrate virtual appliances such as vPE and vCE
- Support for Network Function Virtualization (NFV). The NCX solution introduces flexibility by constructing L4-L7 service chaining on-demand using virtual appliances from industry leading vendors. Anuta NCX offers the industry’s first on-demand network service orchestration for Cisco CSR1000V, Cisco Nexus 1000V, VMware DVS, Citrix NetScaler VPX, F5 BIG-IP, Juniper vSRX, Juniper Firefly and Riverbed Steelhead WAN Optimization
Additionally, to further empower service providers around the world, Anuta Networks is announcing today a Technology Alliance Partner agreement with Fortinet.
"For over a decade, Fortinet has empowered global enterprise customers to embrace new technologies and business opportunities securely. SDN, NFV, and other developing orchestration technologies are key enabling technologies for leveraging the cloud while protecting mission critical network systems," said Ryan Potter, director of strategic alliances at Fortinet. "Fortinet is excited by the opportunities ahead with Anuta Networks to help worldwide enterprises create highly-secure next-generation network services that can transform their businesses in the cloud and maximize their competitive advantages."
Anuta NCX is generally available now and licensed based on per VM or per device depending on deployment model. For more information, visit [www.anutanetworks.com/NCX]
Anuta Networks will showcase its new enhancements to the NCX solution at Cisco Live US, San Francisco, May 19-22, at Booth # 2662.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
