Disaggregated SD-WAN

We create software that enables reliable networks to be delivered anywhere.

Turnium is a certified Cloud Native Network Function (CNF) workload that enables Service Providers to deploy and manage survivable software-defined network connections to uCPE, Edge Compute devices, IoT appliances, fleet vehicles, and offices.

Service Providers Need Disaggregated SD-WAN

Turnium’s Disaggregated SD-WAN is a CNF workload that enables organizations to deploy software-defined connectivity and realize:

Edge Compute:
Turnium is an SD-WAN workload that delivers secure, robust connectivity and enables Edge Compute workloads to be pushed to the edge on-demand.

Turnium powers uCPE. Cost-effective licensing enables the business case for uCPE and connects uCPE to Cloud and Core network services securely.

Use Kubernetes-based orchestrators such as Red Hat® OpenShift (we’re certified CNF) and IBM Cloud’s on-demand Red Hat OpenShift Kubernetes Service (ROKS) to deploy cloud-based solutions with Turnium across the globe. Build your own SASE, launch uCPE solutions, or deploy IoT Industrial Edge services globally.

“Red Hat is committed to helping organizations automate and orchestrate telecom networks from the datacenter to the edge using container technologies. Turnium’s SD-WAN is a certified CNF for Red Hat OpenShift, making it easier for service providers to more quickly automate, orchestrate, and scale their networks.”

– Mark Longwell, Director of Alliances, Cloud Platforms, Red Hat

Superior Efficiency

Containers are lightweight, use fewer resources than virtual machines with a hypervisor and other VM management software, and are less capital intensive when coupled with bare metal white label servers.

Containers use software libraries and run on virtually any Linux operating system with any container management platform that is compatible with Kubernetes as long as the required libraries are installed in the operating system.

This enables service providers to increase the efficiency of their IT service teams by using operating systems and software with which their teams are already familiar, reducing the time spent learning new tools and how to support them effectively.

Why CNFs?

Containerized software can be scaled faster and are more mobile than VMs because they do not require a hypervisor and guest OS to work.

The ability to update and deploy software into containers requires minimal downtime, if any, and certainly not on the order of reinstalling monolithic software onto guest operating systems in virtual machines. As soon as the workload is restarted, the new code version is deployed making changes and rollbacks easier.

Additionally, container deployment can be orchestrated using a variety of tools such as native orchestration within Kubernetes, IBM Cloud Pak for Network Automation, Red Hat Openshift and Red Hat Ansible.

So, whatever your preference, Turnium’s SD-WAN solution can be deployed using the tools of your choice.
