OmniClouds, a cloud service provider and migrator, has decided to implement the Nuage Networks SD-WAN 2.0 platform to deliver cloud connectivity for enterprise customers throughout the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region, according to Nuage’s parent company, Nokia. Nuage Networks will build and operate the SD-WAN 2.0 network, which will aim to connect enterprise customers over a large coverage area, including key public cloud data centers.

Nokia says that OmniClouds will be able to provide its customers with secure and scalable connectivity to data centers, private clouds, and software-as-a-solution (SaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-solution (IaaS) providers. Nokia says OmniClouds’ intended coverage area includes enterprise customers who currently can’t connect to their cloud environments, data centers, and remote locations in this way.

In addition to connectivity, OmniClouds will use the SD-WAN 2.0 platform as an overlay to its existing connectivity technologies, such as IP-MPLS, microwave, satellite, and public internet to automate operations and enhance connectivity. Customers will be provided central management view of the entire network that will enable them to control security, user permissions, and such parameters as latency and quality of service. OmniClouds will deploy Nuage Networks’ SD-WAN 2.0 gateways at each of the region’s main cloud service providers, which connect with SD-WAN CPE gateways at the enterprises’ various facilities.

“We are the trusted partner of enterprise customers in the Middle East and Africa region when they need help in migrating to the cloud. The Nuage Networks SD-WAN 2.0 solution plays a critical part in smoothing their move to the cloud by simplifying the operational side and providing the security and assurance they need for such a critical part of their business,” stated Amr A Eid, CEO and board member of OmniClouds.
