Nuage Networks looks for UK growth with BigTec partnership

Datacentre VAD adds Nuage Networks SDN technology to portfolio

Two hands shaking over a desk

BigTec UK has struck a distribution agreement with Nuage Networks from Nokia, a provider of software-defined networking (SDN) solutions for enterprise datacentres.

The deal was announced at the BigTec Live 2016 event in London, along with more details about the full BigTec UK reference architecture. Big Tec UK will distribute the full Nuage Networks portfolio, which today includes the Virtualised Services Platform (VSP), Virtualised Network Services (VNS) and Virtualised Services Assurance Platform (VSAP).

“The inconvenient truth about datacentre virtualisation is just how tough it becomes to manage multiple hypervisors, multiple clouds, and an explosion in the number of virtual endpoints,” says Jason Dance, managing director at BigTec UK.

“With Nuage Networks SDN technology, organisations no longer will find it prohibitively complicated to scale up and harness the true power of their underlying networks. Nuage Networks provides great opportunities for our reseller partners, and works in tandem with our other vendor technologies – particularly security and software defined WANs.”

The vendor says its SDN overlay helps large enterprises simplify network operations, deploy applications with more agility and adapt network services instantaneously to match changing IT demands.

“The UK is a growing market for Nuage Networks, as large enterprises continue to adopt cloud and virtualisation technology. To meet growing and rapidly changing IT needs, enterprises must make the network infrastructure as dynamic and easily consumable as the compute infrastructure,” says Charles Ferland, VP, business development, Nuage Networks. “With BigTec’s skills and relationships, we will build a committed cohort of local partners and help them succeed.”

BigTec says it will provide demand creation marketing activity, events as well as technical pre-sales and support.
