Simplify SD-WAN Automation with Itential

End-to-end network automation in SD-WAN deployments.

SD-WAN is a Multi-Domain Problem

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.

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.

  • SD-WAN Branch Onboarding – Itential’s pre-built automation provides out of the box capabilities that involves confirmation of request and assessment of new branch template, the allocation of appropriate resources for the provisioning process, and implementation of the new branch.
  • SD-WAN Branch Management – Itential’s pre-built automation provides out of the box capabilities that consists of the configuration and activation of connectivity between existing enterprise offices and new locations being brought online. Enables for continual optimization of traffic growth and application of real-time security policies across branch sites.

By automating our SD-WAN process with Itential, we were able to configure devices in under 10 minutes and onboard more customers than imagined.
