|Licensing and Pricing||
Two components to pricing Upfront CAPEX for hardware CPE only
|Product Differentiator||Enterprise Grade SD-WAN: Advanced Routing, Real-time application policies, Enterprise scale, and Hybrid MPLS, Broadband and LTE|
|Product Differentiator #2||Cloud Intelligent WAN: WAN Extension to IaaS, Fast-path to SaaS, and unified policy across multi-cloud|
|Product Differentiator #3||Enterprise-Grade Security: Zero-trust authentication and encryption, Per-segment topology, and L4-L7 Service chains|
The Viptela solution consists of an on-premise customer premise router. This router is available as a hardware or virtual appliance. The CPE is treated as a distributed forwarding element with both the security and routing control plane intelligence residing in centralized controllers. This architecture helps customers scale the Viptela solution horizontally to tens of thousands of nodes.
Customers can host Viptela SEN CPE appliances in colocation facilities such as Equinix and Telx for Internet and SaaS connectivity.
|Regional/Enterprise Data Center||
Viptela’s edge routers routers can be deployed seamlessly in existing data center environments for secure connectivity from the branch and campus. Viptela centralized controllers can be hosted in these regional/enterprise data centers, in addition to being cloud-based.
|Transport Network Elements – including optical, copper (physical) and MPLS (logical)||
Viptela SEN overlay solution supports multiple forms of transport: MPLS, LTE, Broadband, Metro-Ethernet and more. Transport is viewed as the underlay to the Secure Extensible Network and is supported as a single overlay.
|L3 Routing Capabilities||Yes|
|Description of L3 Routing Capabilities||
Routing protocols supported: eBGP, iBGP, OSPF, VRRP and static. Viptela SEN also utilizes a dynamic routing protocol, called OMP (overlay management protocol), to exchange routing, security and policy information dynamically among the CPE routers and the centralized SD WAN controller.
|Description of L2/Network Services||
Network services: DHCP, DNS, SNMP, IPFIX
|Application-Aware QoS Capabilities||Yes|
|Application-Aware QoS Capabilities||
Viptela SEN identifies an application based on DPI, DSCP markings, or IP 5 tuple match. The Viptela SEN also monitors underlay performance in real-time, measuring loss, latency and jitter across all transport paths. SLA policies are created to ensure critical applications will always traverse optimal paths based on link-quality measurements.
|Description of Multi-Network Capability||
The Viptela SEN supports load balancing across 8 transport links concurrently. Weighted ECMP is also supported to distribute traffic intelligently based on SLA characteristics.
|Built-in L4 Security Capabilities||Yes|
|Description of Built-in L4 Security Capabilities||
State firewall functionality is built-in to the solution for local internet break-out scenarios. Viptela SEN is integrated into cloud access security brokers, cloud hosted security services, and on-premise security appliances to deliver enterprise security.
|Built-in L7 App-Aware Security Capabilities||Yes|
|Top Use Cases||Creating virtual networks for cloud applications (private, public, hybrid network virtualization), Virtual networks for enterprise campuses and Wide area networks for enterprises (SD-WAN)|
