The adoption of SD-WAN, as is the case with most virtual functions, promises to reduce capex and opex for both service providers and enterprises. This is thanks to SD-WAN’s ability to deploy services using centralized, programmable software and commodity hardware. Furthermore, some of the most attractive features that SD-WAN has to offer are its automatic provisioning capabilities, flexible transport options, and increased security capabilities – important to any service, but especially so for emerging IoT services where human intervention is cost-prohibitive.
CENX’s Exanova Service Intelligence offers the capabilities needed to address the complex needs of enterprise customers while bridging the gap between physical and virtual infrastructure to deliver real-time orchestrated service assurance. Exanova also enables service providers to drive service agility, assure service quality of experience (QoE), and reduce opex.
