Alcatel Lucent unveils SDN start-up to NZ businesses

Alcatel Lucent has officially introduced its global Software Defined Networking (SDN) start-up to New Zealand businesses.

Alcatel Lucent has officially introduced its global Software Defined Networking (SDN) start-up, Nuage Networks, to New Zealand businesses.

Building on two years of strong global momentum, New Zealand has now been identified as a “focal market” for the next phase of the Nuage Networks growth strategy.

“New Zealand business is fast moving to take advantage of the massive efficiency and creative gains made possible with Cloud IT,” says Marten Hauville, Principal Solutions Architect A/NZ, Nuage Networks.

“Fuelled by this strategic business shift and a step-change in broadband access via UFB, we expect New Zealand business to make a strong surge towards open cloud platforms.”

Drawing on Alcatel Lucent’s decades-long leadership in ultra-broadband and IP networking, Nuage Networks Software Defined Networking (SDN) solutions are designed to break cloud constraints in two critical parts of the enterprise network.

Firstly, the Data Centre where Nuage Networks addresses network constraints that limit cloud services adoption.

According to Hauville, Nuage Networks allows banking, retail, healthcare, utilities and other enterprise market segments, as well as web-scale companies - large Internet-based companies - such as cloud service providers and telecom service providers, to scale their cloud offers and provide instant, secure connectivity to multiple customers.

Secondly, the Wide Area Network (WAN) is an area where Hauville believes Nuage Networks can leverage and enhance both corporate WAN and Internet access bandwidth securely, to increase the range of application deployment options and reduce cost without compromising visibility and control.

“New Zealand businesses know that competitive advantage these days is dictated by swiftness and agility, increasingly around business-driven applications that attain this advantage in the marketplace,” he adds.

“SDN is an evolution in the management, configuration and dynamism of networks, enabling business to efficiently deliver existing and new business Cloud IT applications.

“Technology will be more deeply woven into the fabric of the business, to become a catalyst for future innovation, products and revenue.”
