April 15, 2020 – Nokia and Asavie entered a commercial and product partnership. Asavie’s mobile SD Edge technology will be integrated with Nokia Nuage Networks SD-WAN 2.0.
Managed SD-WAN providers that offer Nuage SD-WAN will be able to offer business clients connectivity to enterprise applications and cloud and SaaS services with their mobile devices with exactly the same visibility, control and security policies, as for fixed network endpoints. Asavie SD Edge can also be extended to IoT endpoints providing they are SIM-based.
Whilst bringing in remote mobile endpoints into the current SD-WAN gives benefits for a remote workforce during the Covid-19 crisis, Asavie SD Edge holds more strategic possibilities for a future way to cost effectively manage more and more workloads on mobile devices and SIM-based IoT device visibility and central orchestration and management.
Managed SD-WAN service providers that do not have a matching Asavie SD Edge capability can offer mobile VPN clients or direct mobile and IoT device-generated traffic through a URL for filtering – but both these workarounds to the problem add overhead.
