Dynamic Multipath OptimizationTM includes automatic link monitoring, auto-detection of service provider and auto-configuration of link characteristics, routing and QOS settings
Smart control is enables through granular classification of over 2,500 applications. Out-of-the-box defaults set Quality of Service (QoS) policies for common business objectives. IT staff simply establish traffic priority. Application profiles enable automation of QoS configurations and bandwidth allocations.
Link Steering and Remediation
Automated, on-demand per-packet link steering is based on measured performance metrics, intelligent application learning, business priority of the applications, and link costs. Sub-second blackout and brownout protection improves application uptime and availability. Link degradation remediation is accomplished through forward error correction, activating jitter buffering and synthetic packet production.
Application Performance Monitoring
The SD-WAN continuously computes a “Quality Score” that assesses the performance of critical voice, video, or data applications at any given time, and can alert IT staff. The Quality Score analysis provides administrators with a comprehensive before-and-after view into application behavior on individual links.
SoftWave SD-WAN Edge appliances automatically authenticate, connect, and receive configuration instructions when they are connected to the Internet, with zero-touch deployment. Highly available deployment is delivered with SoftWave SD-WAN Edge redundancy protocol. Integrate your existing network with OSPF routing protocol to take advantage of dynamic learning and automation.
Stateful and context-aware (application, user, device) integrated next generation firewall delivers granular control of micro-applications, and supports protocol-hopping applications, like Skype and other peer-to-peer applications. The firewall service is user and device OS-aware, and can segregate voice, video, data, and compliance traffic. Policies for BYOD devices (Apple iOS, Android, Windows, MAC OS, etc.) on the corporate network are easily controlled.
Single-click site-to-site cloud VPN, is a VPNC-compliant IPSec VPN that connects SoftWave SD-WAN and non-SoftWave SD-WAN sites, while delivering real-time status and health for all VPN sites. Establish dynamic edge-to-edge communication for all types of branches based on service level objectives and application performance. Secure connectivity is enabled across all branches with PKI scalable key management. Adding new branches automatically join the VPN network, and have access to all resources within other branches, enterprise data centers, and third-party data centers, such as AWS.
Virtual Service Platform
Virtual Network Function
Virtual network function (VNF) services run on SoftWave SD-WAN Edge hardware and SD-WAN Gateway, deployed in the cloud, or at specific enterprise regional hubs, and support service chaining.
Security Service Chaining
Chain cloud services for seamless integration and management. Mosaic SoftWave as-a-Service is based on VMware NSX SD-WAN by VeloCloud, and supports their partnership with Zscaler and Websense that chain cloud-based security services for advanced threat protection. You can also transparently forward select traffic to cloud security services based on business-policy definition, without branch-by-branch or application-based configuration.
Mosaic SoftWave SD-WAN Virtual Edge runs on any x86, multi-core device capable of supporting single-ended services, such as firewall, or a dual-ended service, like VPN, via a variety of supported hypervisors (e,g, VMware, KVM, or Xen). When services are needed in the cloud, they can also be spun up in the Mosaic SoftWave SD-WAN Gateway using hypervisors.
Automation & Orchestration
Quality of Service, resource allocations, link/path steering, and error correction are automatically applied using business policies and application priorities. Traffic is orchestrated based on service groups that are defined by private and public links, policy definition, and link characteristics.
Management and Control
Mosaic SoftWave SD-WAN central monitoring, visibility and cloud control are zero-touch provisioned in branch deployments across distributed locations. Automatic business policy and firmware updates, link performance, and capacity measurements are also delivered with zero-touch provisioning. Mosaic SoftWave SD-WAN supports northbound RESTful APIs for integration with different management solutions and multi-tenant dashboards.
SoftWave SD-WAN offers recognition and classification of 2,500+ applications and sub applications without the need to deploy separate hardware or software probes within each branch location. The solution intelligently learns applications as they are seen on the network and adds them to the SoftWave SD-WAN cloud-based application database. Services such as firewall, intelligent multipath, and Smart QoS may be controlled through the solution’s application-aware business policy control.
