SevOne, a network and infrastructure management solutions provider, has launched an SD-WAN Monitoring Solution that aims to increase the operational agility of managed services providers (MSPs) offering multiple, complex network services over their multi-tenant, multi-vendor software-defined wide area networks (SD-WANs). The solution is based on the company’s data platform.
The SevOne SD-WAN Monitoring Solution, which will provide initial support for Cisco SD-WAN, delivers MSPs the foundation of real-time and historical visibility into their network with specific tenant health. The MSPs can easily expand the solution and increase visibility across their entire service delivery path, including enterprise Wi-Fi from campus to branch, software defined data centres and more. The solution assists MSP network operations and engineering teams by effortlessly transitioning from offering MPLS-based services to new hybrid SD-WAN-based services.
Ramesh Prabagaran, director, product management, Cisco, said: “Cisco SD-WAN with the SevOne SD-WAN Monitoring Solution provides MSPs a joint solution to deliver the agility and cost efficiency of Cisco SD-WAN to their end customers. Paired with solutions like SevOne, Cisco SD-WAN gives customers a chance to solve issues before they impact the network, optimizing business operations and user experience.”
Jim Melvin, SevOne SVP marketing and corporate development, said: “Enterprise accounts consuming MSP services today require high quality service delivery. The SevOne SD-WAN Monitoring Solution enables MSPs to provide real-time insight of complex services running across their infrastructure, and then extend that visibility across their entire service delivery path to continuously meet and exceed their service quality targets.”
