Netsocket Virtual Edge
Netsocket’s Virtual Edge is a solution specifically optimized for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) and their enterprise remote office and SMB customers. Virtual Edge is a cloud-managed virtual network solution that enables service providers to deploy highly profitable managed services to their business customers. Through advanced cloud-based Automated Application Delivery (AAD) and network orchestration, Netsocket enables service providers to turn up new services and scale rapidly, become more profitable and be on the forefront of delivering next generation services.
Empowering MSPs to Grow Revenue and Deliver Profitable New Managed Services
MSPs that provide networking services to enterprise remote sites traditionally have had to make a big investment in operational costs for hands-on installation and configuration. With Virtual Edge, service providers can ship a pre-configured MicroCloud Server that connects to the cloud and learns its custom configuration automatically. At the customer site, the MicroCloud Server replaces the need for dedicated routing hardware. The Virtual Edge Automated Application Delivery (AAD) feature can then be used to automatically deploy, install and plumb additional open-source or third party applications (vApps) such as advanced security, WiFi, and monitoring.
By layering on services based on vApps in addition to managed routing, service providers can increase their revenue per user easily by a factor of 4 times the revenue achieved through managed routing alone. This is possible because of the complete automation of the process of application deployment and the lower cost of virtualized applications that run on the MicroCloud Server. Netsocket works with MSP’s to identify best-of-breed open source and third party applications to qualify as a vApp capable of automated orchestration. The list of supported applications grows daily, and a current list of vApps can be found here.
