NSX SD-WAN Capabilities

NSX SD-WAN provides bandwidth expansion as well as direct optimal access to enterprise and cloud applications, and data. It also enables virtual services insertion in cloud and on premise — while dramatically improving operational automation.

Performance & Reliability

Deliver hybrid WAN with high performance, reliability and transport, and provider flexibility to assure optimal performance even for demanding applications, such as voice and video.

Cloud
Network

Eliminate datacenter backhaul penalties with a cloud-ready network to provide an optimized direct path to public and private enterprise clouds.

Virtual
Services

Reduce the branch office footprint with a single click with seamless insertion and chaining of virtualized services on premise and in the cloud.

Automation & Orchestration

Enable zero-touch branch network deployment with automation and business policy-based orchestration.

NSX SD-WAN Architecture

NSX SD-WAN enables the use of wired or wireless broadband Internet with or without traditional MPLS to create enterprise grade wide area networks with increased bandwidth, high performance access to cloud, service insertion and extensive network visibility.

NSX SD-WAN Solution Components

NSX SD-WAN Gateways

NSX SD-WAN incorporates a distributed network of service gateways deployed at top tier cloud datacenters around the world, providing scalability, redundancy and on-demand flexibility. NSX SD-WAN Gateways provide optimized data paths to all applications, branches and datacenters along with the ability to deliver network services from the cloud.

NSX SD-WAN Edge

The NSX SD-WAN Edges are zero-touch enterprise-class appliances that provide secure optimized connectivity to private, public and hybrid applications, compute and virtualized services. NSX SD-WAN Edges perform deep application recognition, application and packet steering, performance metrics and end to end quality of service in addition to hosting virtual network function (VNF) services.

NSX SD-WAN Orchestrator

The NSX SD-WAN Orchestrator provides centralized enterprise-wide installation, configuration and real-time monitoring in addition to orchestrating the data flow through the cloud network. The NSX SD-WAN Orchestrator enables one-click provisioning of virtual services in the branch, the cloud, or the enterprise datacenter.
