"The support is very good from Juniper and from the local distributors."
"It gives you that level of visibility to understand what's going on between layer four and layer seven."
"Increases the performance of applications and is easy to deploy."
"Proactively detects where problems might arise."
"The service they provide is very stable and is the main influencer of why customers purchase this solution."
"Anyone can migrate over to VeloCloud, it's that simple, just plug in the necessary cables and it's done."
"It is fairly similar to other solutions. It has the capability for testing link connectivity, which is its unique feature from a control perspective."
"It is very simple to configure. When you use the cloud to configure the equipment, it has zero-touch provisioning."
"The most valuable feature is load balancing."
"They make use of a combination of different internet lines, which improves quality."
"The solution installs similarly to competitors. It is not more difficult or easier. However, it could be easier and take less time for the installation."
"The training could be better. When it comes to the demo dashboard capability, I feel like it could be much easier for our customers to use. Our last customer complained about this."
"I would like for them to upgrade to 5G integration. Our customers have 4G now and the connectivity isn't good. It should be much faster."
"There are a number of customers we have that require a fully mashed SD-WAN on VeloCloud that is not available currently."
"There is no security included, which is something that should be improved."
"Technical support is in need of improvement."
"VMware SD-WAN could be improved with more automation and more integration, but each vendor could use these improvements."
"Can't execute commands quickly when troubleshooting. The graphic user interface is slow."
"They should provide us with the flexibility to scale up."
"Reporting is an area that can be improved, as there are some features that are lacking with the reporting aspect."
Contrail SD-WAN delivers a simple, automated multicloud SD-WAN. It enables you to create an evolvable architecture to simplify growth, from secure routers to SD-WAN, SD-Branch, and beyond. It automates the WAN edge across Juniper virtual cloud endpoints and on-premises next-generation firewall or universal CPE platforms. And it provisions and enforces multilevel security policy at scale, across multiple clouds and enterprise sites with diverse topologies.
Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is the application of softwarebased network technologies that virtualize WAN connections to provide agility,
performance and reliability for network traffic between remote and branch offices to
data centers and the cloud.
SD-WAN leverages cloud-hosting to simplify deployment and management of
network devices and employs traffic steering to applications in the data center and
the cloud. It combines the bandwidth of broadband with existing WAN connections to
more efficiently and cost-effectively connect users to data center and cloud-based
applications from any location in the network.
SD-WAN optimizes traffic over multiple available connections (MPLS, broadband,
LTE) to deliver traffic across the network, delivering a better user experience to any
location. SD-WAN will dynamically steer traffic to the best available link, and if the
available links show any transmission issues, it will immediately apply remediation for
jitter and packet loss based on policies to ensure performance of the high-priority
