Palo Alto delivers new SD-WAN approach with latest CloudGenix appliances

By

A pair of SD-WAN appliances from Palo Alto Networks are the first expressions of the company's new approach to SD-WAN.

The CloudGenix Ion 1000 is a small form factor SD-WAN appliance designed for retail and SOHO use cases, and is quiet enough for locations without an equipment room.

The CloudGenix Ion 9000 is the high-end model in the CloudGenix SD-WAN appliance range, with twice the performance of the previous flagship device. It is said to be ideal for large branches and campus locations, as it supports multi-gigabit throughput and a 'fail to wire' high availability capability.

Features of Palo Alto Networks next-generation SD-WAN include provision for app-based policies and SLAs for all apps, automated operations and problem avoidance using machine learning and data science, and support for delivering all branch services from the cloud.

Integration with Prisma Access allows customers to secure intra- and inter-branch traffic as well as traffic from the branch to any applications hosted in public or private clouds.

“With cloud and multi-cloud adoption on the rise, end-user applications like videoconferencing and office productivity solutions are increasingly delivered as cloud services. Legacy WAN architectures have severe limitations, especially when organisations migrate to the cloud. First-generation SD-WAN falls significantly short in changing the economics of branch WAN infrastructure and services,” said Palo Alto Networks senior vice president of product management for firewall as a platform Kumar Ramachandran.

“Enterprises are now demanding an autonomous SD-WAN solution that eliminates the need for manual operational tasks. Enterprises also need a cloud-delivered model for security and other branch services to gain cloud-scale economics. CloudGenix SD-WAN is the industry’s first next-generation SD-WAN solution that is app-defined, autonomous and cloud-delivered. With powerful ML-based capabilities, we deliver dramatic reductions in 'day two' operational costs. A customer recently told us they reduced their WAN costs by 82%.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
