“Results-First” Approach Guides Automation and Intelligence

The digital transformation requires that all network activity get faster, more responsive and intelligent, and eliminate errors.

IT teams are heavily burdened by the manually intensive processes required to manage all network activities. The list of projects required by network managers to maintain status quo is often long and tedious. But Outcome-Driven Networking changes all that.

Current Network Management Inhibits True Growth

The complexities, disparate systems, and unlimited configuration permutations inherent in managing a corporate network can slow down expansion and business-enablement. Transitioning to a proactive management platform that truly understands and accounts for the demands placed on IT teams, eliminating manual activities to power a shift to strategic activities gives organization the tools they need to succeed.


Every network process requires numerous-clicks to ensure that the desired result will occur, and when multiplied by each process and device on which changes need to be implemented, becomes a huge time investment.

Inefficient Cloud Access

Determining link performance and assigning critical traffic to the correct link while determining the correct policy combination on a real-time basis can impede seamless access to cloud applications.

All Network Traffic Treated Equally

Not all traffic is equal, yet many organizations treat them as if they are, resulting in delivery delays, compromised quality, and insecure systems. Prioritization needs to be performed automatically and information separated from dissimilar traffic.

on Routers

Routing is not a router-only activity and the dependence on these devices simply because it’s always been a staple is backward, not forward looking. Elevating routing and optimizing what it can do is imperative.

Outcome-Driven Networking

Built on the principles of SDN and SD-WAN, Outcome-Driven Networking is uniquely developed to achieve the desired state of a network through the complete automation of network configuration and processes using single-click commands combined with a level of network-wide intelligence that is able to auto-learn and self-correct.

Application Performance

Boost the service level, performance and capacity of hybrid networks or of standard broadband Internet links by implementing Dynamic Multi-Path Optimization (DMPO) for assured application performance. DMPO aggregates multiple links (e.g. Private, Cable, DSL, 4G-LTE) and steers traffic over the most optimal link at any given instant in time to other VMware NSX® SD-WAN by VeloCloud™ Edges no matter where they’re located.

Simple and Secure VPN

Simple one-click site-to-site IPSec VPN is used to connect NSX SD-WAN and non-NSX SD-WAN sites while delivering real-time status and health of VPN sites. These sites can be set up via NSX SD-WAN Gateways or hub devices. Policies are abstracted, and users simply state the outcome of connecting to a certain destination, for example: cloud applications.


Segmentation is essential for isolating different types of traffic while maintaining specific business policies, such as segmenting PCI traffic from corporate traffic and guest Internet traffic. Customers can enable the creation of separate and unique topologies and rules for each segment, and the segments are carried forward the entire network seamlessly.

Intelligent Routing

Providing a GUI to support routing is something every SD-WAN vendor can enable. NSX SD-WAN intelligent routing goes far beyond than just supporting standard routing. With support for BGP and OSPF, NSX SD-WAN allows flexibility in seamless integration with existing networks and for incremental deployments.

Service Insertion

Service insertion supports virtual network function (VNF) services to run on NSX SD-WAN Edges and NSX SD-WAN Gateways, in the cloud of the service provider, or at the specific enterprise regional hub with service chaining support.

Zero-Touch Operations

NSX SD-WAN Edges automatically authenticate, connect, and receive configuration instructions once they are connected to the Internet in a zero-touch deployment. NSX SD-WAN integrates with the existing network with and users benefit from dynamic learning and automation.
