Glue Networks Unveils Proof of Concept Support for Multi-Vendor SD-WAN Orchestration
Today at the Open Networking User Group (ONUG) Fall 2015 event, Glue Networks revealed support for multi-vendor orchestration across routers, switches, WAN optimization, and controllers, including Citrix Cloudbridge and Cisco IWAN. More information is available at

Gluware 2.0 multi-vendor proof of concept at ONUG highlights the following benefits:

  • Vendor-agnostic platform: Eliminates the need for network engineers to learn specific syntax and semantic rules for the command-line interface (CLI) of supported device features.
  • Single graphical user interface: Gluware Control allows for the management of multi-vendor devices in a single, easy to use interface for better organization, asset control, tracking, and life-cycle management of network appliances at remote sites or branches.
  • Unified policy orchestration: Provides a single platform for orchestrating security, compliance and control policies on supported devices across the network.
  • Extensibility: Gluware Lab allows for custom configuration of additional devices not already supported in Gluware Control.

  • A global pharma case study: Jeff Gray, CEO and co-founder of Glue Networks and Rahsaan Akbar, practice manager at Dimension Data will co-present a case study where Gluware SD-WAN orchestration is deployed in a major global pharma company at 1:40pm ET on Thursday, Nov. 5.
  • Working group panel and live Gluware 2.0 demo: Jeff Gray of Glue Networks will be presenting a demo on SDN federation, operability and orchestration as part of a panel at 1:45pm ET on Wednesday, Nov. 4.
  • Live Gluware 2.0 demo: Olivier Huynh Van, CTO and co-founder of Glue Networks, will be presenting a demo of the Gluware 2.0 SD-WAN multi-vendor capabilities and features for the SD-WAN POC working group at 2:30pm ET on Wednesday, Nov. 4.
  • ONUG Academy session: Dr. Nick Feamster of Princeton University will be conducting an ONUG Academy session on wide-area SDN featuring Glue Networks technology at 9:00am ET on Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Jeff Gray, CEO and co-founder, Glue Networks, said: "CIOs need a way to prevent significant and costly network outages. The ability to detect and remediate configuration errors in near real-time can make the difference between the enterprise making or losing millions of dollars a day. As the market transitions to a more software defined and NFV world, the opportunity for manual or automated configuration errors and outages increases dramatically. As networks become more feature rich and diverse, a platform that understands the network state across multiple vendors, features, network devices and controllers is instrumental in bringing the level of automation and orchestration required for the future state that users are demanding."
