Application Networking

SteelHead

WAN Optimization

Riverbed®  SteelHead™ solutions deliver comprehensive visibility, optimization and control of all applications, including on-premises and cloud-based applications, to deliver extraordinary application performance no matter where users are located or when changes in business requirements occur—providing you with the flexibility for your business to stay agile.

SteelConnect

Application-Defined SD-WAN

Riverbed® SteelConnect™ is the cornerstone of Riverbed’s strategy for next-generation, application defined enterprise networking. SteelConnect is a complete SD-WAN system for securely connecting users and business to the applications they need, wherever they reside—on a remote LAN, in a data center, or in the cloud. SteelConnect offers several differentiators—ubiquitous and unified connectivity across LAN, WAN and the Cloud; business aligned orchestration for fast, agile and secure application delivery; and unique cloud-centric workflow, easy menu-driven network design of sites, zones, uplinks, and rules and centralized, business intent-based policy management—all within a simple graphical user interface—for ease of use and greater business agility.

SteelFusion

Software-Defined Edge solution

Riverbed®  SteelFusion™ is the first and only software-defined edge solution that delivers local performance while enabling remote data and backup centralization, instant provisioning/recovery, and lower TCO for distributed organizations. SteelFusion provides organizations with the ability to software-define their edge IT with a broad storage, compute, and cloud ecosystem. Organizations get the flexibility to leverage and maximize the value of their centralized investments in backend storage—traditional storage arrays or hyper-converged infrastructure (iSCSI, Fiber Channel, NFS), or cloud platforms (AWS, Azure, IBM Cloud), virtualization, backup licensing and full-time IT staff and extend them to remote edge locations running on a single dedicated appliance or via software running on compliant commodity server hardware.

​DDI

Enterprise-grade DNS, DHCP, and IP Address Management (DDI)

Infoblox’s integrated DNS, DHCP, IPAM solution leverages patented Infoblox Grid™ technology to provide highly available core network services. Hardened appliances and operating systems make the solution more secure with extensions for implementing additional security features in both DNS and DHCP. The web-based GUI—with a distributed database, granular role-based administration, and closed-loop workflows that leverage automation, templates, and property inheritance—provides significant OpEx reductions while freeing up highly skilled engineers and architects to address more strategic IT initiatives.

BIG-IP

Application Delivery

The BIG-IP platform is a smart evolution of Application Delivery Controller (ADC) technology. Solutions built on this platform are load balancers. And they’re full proxies that give visibility into, and the power to control—inspect and encrypt or decrypt—all the traffic that passes through your network. BIG-IP software runs on BIG-IP or VIPRION hardware or as a virtual edition on a client server. Hardware offers the greatest scalability, while virtual editions offer added deployment flexibility. BIG-IP products provide application services ranging from access and acceleration to security to intelligent traffic management.

Packet Networking

Packet Networking

Ciena’s Packet Networking Products combine intelligent devices, software, and virtualization to create the infrastructure necessary for low-touch, high-velocity Ethernet access, aggregation, and packet-optical networks, and provide a common, consistent way to deliver the full range of Ethernet services from the access edge to the core. Network operators can now realize unparalleled speed in the delivery, agility, and assurance of their Ethernet services, resulting in significant differentiation in this ever-competitive market.
