Netsocket's Virtual Edge Brings SDN to Branch Offices

Netsocket introduced a cloud-managed virtual network implementation that lets Service Providers deliver enterprise-capable routing functions and other IT services target small to medium-sized businesses and enterprises with remote office networks.


Netsocket’s Virtual Edge solution leverages the company’s SDN framework for network virtualization and advanced orchestration. The Virtual Edge solution is a fully automated, centrally managed virtual network that enables service providers to deliver managed network services to its business customers -- without the need to travel to a customer site to install, deploy, update or manage the customer’s network.

The solution’s centralized cloud-based network orchestration capabilities are combined with virtual networking software hosted on the low-profile and cost-effective standard x86-based MicroCloud Server at the site.

Netsocket said its the MicroCloud component of NVN ostensibly replaces the traditional costly router, server and Layer 3 switch that would normally be required.  The MicroCloud Server is shipped to the customer site and requires the user to plug-in one cable to unleash full virtual network functionality within minutes.

“Managed Service Providers must find a way to provide affordable network services to smaller business customers and at a profit,” stated Fletcher Hamilton, president and CEO of Netsocket. “Netsocket’s Virtual Edge solution does just that.  MSPs can now offer reliable, affordable network services and extend their reach to a wider range of customers.  We are very excited to pioneer the path for MSPs by delivering a solution that can virtually revolutionize their business and profitability model and in short, result in new revenue streams.”

In October, Netsocket introduced its Virtual Network solution for enterprise campuses and distributed office LAN and edge networking environments. Most SDN solutions target data center or metro networks.


Netsocket's Enterprise Edition NVN vNetCommander orchestration application, which now commercially available, is comprised of a three-tier SDN architecture – providing end-to-end virtual networking, centralized orchestration and automation, and superior interoperability and integration with legacy routed networks as well as higher-level management systems such as Microsoft System Center. The Netsocket Virtual Network interconnects enterprise branches in just a few minutes, with no networking expertise required at the site. Its switching and routing components are automatically deployed and provisioned to each branch office using the centralized, intuitive network management application vNetCommander. The company said its web-based GUI, the vNetCommander, can handle automated deployment, installation, configuration and orchestration of virtualized networks all from a centralized console.
