The Nuage Networks Network Services Gateway (NSG) is the branch office router that typically connects remote sites to Layer 2 or Layer 3 VPN services, Internet broadband, or other WAN services. The NSG comes in a variety of form factors, including dedicated appliance or virtual software that can be deployed on common off-the-shelf hardware. The appliance models come in scalable versions to meet service and bandwidth needs at the most effective price-point.
|Regional/Enterprise Data Center||
Nuage Networks SD-WAN deployments rely on the centralized policy repository and network controller in the Virtualized Services Platform (VSP). This centralized SDN controller manages the desired networking and service policies for all the remote sites, including security services, and configures the remote CPE devices accordingly, in a consistent and automated fashion.
|L3 Routing Capabilities||Yes|
|Description of L3 Routing Capabilities||
The system provides for Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN services, MPLS, and Layer 3 routing protocols like OSPF and BGP, and Layer 3 overlay services through VXLAN and VXLANoIPsec encapsulation.
|Description of L2/Network Services||
The system provides DHCPv4 server capabilities, as well as 802.1Q locally significant VLAN support
|Application-Aware QoS Capabilities||Yes|
|Application-Aware QoS Capabilities||
DSCP-based classification with DSCP rewrite options, ingress QoS classification and rate limiting, hierarchical QoS color-aware egress shaping based on 4 WRR queues
|Description of Multi-Network Capability||
The system provides flow-based WAN uplink load balancing, advanced traffic steering and prioritization based on application type recognition
|Built-in L4 Security Capabilities||Yes|
|Description of Built-in L4 Security Capabilities||
Directional Layer 2 to Layer 4 traffic classification with accept/deny/redirect actions, IPsec authentication and encryption
|Built-in L7 App-Aware Security Capabilities||No|
|Top Use Cases||Creating virtual networks for cloud applications (private, public, hybrid network virtualization), Virtual networks for enterprise campuses, Wide area networks for enterprises (SD-WAN) and Improving flexibility and agility for internal operational efficiencies|
