Gluware WAN OS Debuts to Take Complexity Out of Implementation, Monitoring and Maintenance of NGWAN

By Madhubanti Rudra February 15, 2013

In a game-changing move for the communication industry, network automation technology company Glue Networks introduced the industry’s first SDN WAN Operating System (OS), which automatically builds, maintains, monitors and manages next-gen wide area networks (NGWANs)-as-a-Service, anywhere in the world.

This breakthrough technology is expected to make the management and deployment of NGWAN infrastructures hassle free and cost effective.

In a recent statement, Glue networks claimed that the new technology, coupled with existing gluware cloud service applications, can unlock more than 50 next-generation WAN features through automated device configuration.

This proprietary OS has been designed to intelligently automate the configuration and management of complex NGWAN deployments.

By eliminating the need for manual deployments, which are generally error-prone, the OS helps deploy complex NGWANs rapidly, thus accelerating time to value and reducing OPEX.

Powered by a central policy-based controller, gluware WAN OS also provides automated, ongoing management and maintenance from a simple Web portal. Its SaaS model helps dramatically reduce NGWAN OPEX costs for different sizes of IT departments as well.

“This is truly a game-changer for the industry. This technology takes the complexity out of the implementation, monitoring and maintenance of NGWAN, thus providing accelerated time to value and reduced costs for todays budget challenged IT departments,” CEO at Glue Networks, Jeff Gray, commented in a statement.

Glue Networks recently announced its expansion into the European market driven by the growth of its production networks with enterprise customers and service providers there.

“We are excited by our growth in Europe and continuing to drive value for our European customers and partners by executing on our vision for automating the networks of tomorrow” Gray said.
