SD-WAN with Nuage Networks

Agile Connect

Enabling a digital business

Flexible agile network solution

BT Agile Connect is one of our SD-WAN solutions, utilising Nuage Networks technology, and is a key component of our Dynamic Network Services. It offers the flexibility, agility and control you are looking for in your platform to enable your digital business.

BT Agile Connect delivers:

  • increased service availability and more bandwidth at a lower cost
  • simpler control of the network and the ability to view traffic
  • support for your migration to the ever expanding number of cloud and internet based services
  • faster set-up of a secure solution.

BT Agile Connect features:

Dynamic routing as part of a hybrid VPN

Dynamic routingOne of the key benefits of an SD-WAN solution and why it’s such a key component of a hybrid infrastructure is the dynamic routing capability.

Dynamic routing is seen as crucial to a modern network because it enables an active / active connection instead of the traditional active / backup solution. This means that both the main and back-up connection are used for network traffic, increasing the capacity of the site.

BT Agile Connect is transport agnostic and so it can be built on BT’s secure resilient global network or your own connectivity.

Applications are prioritised based on their importance to the organisation, with high priority traffic taking the best performing route. That route is software-defined rather than a pre-defined route, ensuring it can react to the current circumstances in order to maximise performance.

Whilst this sounds complicated, it’s simply implemented through the use of our My Account portal. The portal enables the prioratisation of applications whilst also giving an overview of the existing estate and detailed reporting on the network and applications which run on it. The portal also plays a key role in the simple installation process.

Simple, fast and secure installation

Simple, fast and secure installationBT Agile Connect can be set up in a fraction of the time of a traditional network. The device is assigned to the site on our My Account portal, the box is then shipped to the site with simple instructions, set up is then completed with an in-built security and activation process. The box can be connected to a choice of different network services, either MPLS, business grade internet or broadband services. You no longer need to wait for new network connectivity, it can be implemented on existing infrastructure.

Security is a key component of the installation process and is inherent within the solution. We offer security of the overlay network, secure routing between internet overlay and MPLS VPN and security of the devices on the network.
