Anuta Networks Unleashes Extensible Network Services (EnX), Offering Unmatched Agility and Customization to Network Service Delivery

Anuta Networks, the industry-first provider of network services virtualization solutions, today announced unparalleled agility, portability, and flexibility through its EnX, an Extensible Network Services framework. With EnX, customers and partners can develop their own device, service, and operational models to match their specific network service delivery needs. As part of the EnX framework, customers and partners will receive development tools including an SDK, to develop extensions to Anuta models and also define their own implementations of the abstractions provided in EnX.

“In the last five months after Anuta came out of stealth mode, we have had a tremendous number of customer engagements worldwide,” said Chandu Guntakala, CEO and President, Anuta Networks. “One of the aspects of Network Service Orchestration is abstracting device, service and operational models. With EnX, we are offering a significantly agile framework, opening our solution so customers can rapidly deploy and deliver network services.”

By leveraging EnX, customers and partners will be able to gain from the normalized device models and further customize the service chains, operational models, and offer additional catalog based service models. EnX provides:

  • South Bound Extensibility – Includes basic device models, common network operations, notifications, and others. Partners and customers can add their own device models or extend Anuta provided models to suit their needs.
  • North Bound Obstruction – Provides Cloud and other north bound orchestration tools to utilize a normalized network service operation model for major functionalities including Firewall, ADC, IPS, VPN, and others.

"With the introduction of EnX framework, Anuta is addressing a growing industry need where large enterprise customers and cloud service providers are not limited to specific hardware solutions, nor do they need to change their existing hardware infrastructure." Ethan Banks, industry network architect, and host/writer, Packet Pushers

Partners can utilize EnX to develop customer specific network and service models to provide value added services, for faster time-to-market. Customers can utilize EnX to fine tune nCloudX models to match their production needs.

Product Availability

EnX will be available as part of Anuta’s software version 2.5 with expected release during CYQ3. For more information, visit
