Simplify SD-WAN Automation with Itential
End-to-end network automation in SD-WAN deployments.
The explosion in the demand for new cloud-based services, applications and networks span’s across various domains such as distributed clouds, data centers, WANs, LANs, and edge. This has resulted in the expectation for SD-WAN services to traverse multiple domains or face failures to deliver the expected application experience, optimize cloud connectivity, improve security, and to provide complete visibility of the network for managing and resolving network issues. A lack of interoperability across distributed multi-domain networks leads to siloed operations, complex platform interactions, and ultimately higher operational costs.
This is placing an increased burden on already stretched network operations teams to not only maintain business as usual services running, but rollout new technologies, such as SD-WAN branches. NetOps teams are now expected to manage multiple vertical solutions across multiple domains, which also comes with a steep learning curve.
Network automation is the key to enabling organizations to transition and manage legacy network in combination with next generation technologies, like SD-WAN using a single tool set.

SD-WAN solutions must include a multi-domain strategy to provide coordinated service creation as well as basic operations and configuration management capabilities. Itential’s Automation Platform simplifies and automates the management and configuration processes for SD-WAN, enabling organizations to drastically reduce risks and improve efficiency, increase agility, launch applications faster and drive overall business value.
INTEGRATIONS WITH LEADING SD-WAN SOLUTIONS
The Itential Automation Platform is API first. Our vendor-agnostic solution connects to anything and acts as an aggregated network API, federating functionality and data from existing northbound and southbound systems, including controllers, orchestrators and network management tools.
RAPID AUTOMATION FOR SD-WAN USE CASES
Itential provides a number of pre-built automations that customers can leverage to rapidly adopt automation for specific use cases.
By automating our SD-WAN process with Itential, we were able to configure devices in under 10 minutes and onboard more customers than imagined.
Simplify Network Management
Easily scale to manage thousands of devices across your entire network and execute zero-touch deployment automations through cloud-based management using a single interface.
Federate Across Network Technologies
Mitigate the complexity of managing multiple languages. Itential easily consumes and federates modeling languages such as YANG, YAML and TOSCA, abstracting the complexity from the user for simplified automation.
Unified View Across Your Entire Network
Itential provides an abstracted and federated view of the data, processes & logic from integrated systems, enabling a single pane of glass across your entire network and management tools for simplifying automation across your organization.
Automate Multi-Domain & Multi-Vendor Networks
Itential’s network automation platform provides cohesive end-to-end and closed-loop automation capabilities across your hybrid cloud, multi-vendor SD-WAN deployments.
Streamline usage for multi-domain solutions to reduce operational costs by automating the process for routing application traffic to drive efficient delivery.
Granular Role Based Access Controls ensures secure authorization of users and administrators so the right individuals or groups can participate in the end-to-end network automations at the right step in the process.
