When you deploy Turnium SD-WAN, these IPsec tunnels and the professional services or support time needed for maintenance and changes is a thing of the past.
All configurations are created using the Management Server and are automatically pushed to the CPE at each site as well as to the Core Node Aggregation Servers. Adding a new multi-site network is simple. Create a “Space” for a network with Private WAN routing to keep customer traffic segregated and secure in three clicks and type in the Name and a Key. Then add site profiles to the space. Building a site profile takes about four minutes and consists of four mouse clicks and the typing a site name into a field with a final click to save. Then add the circuit details that will be used at each site and you are done.
Adding a new site to an existing network is also easy. Access the space for the network and simply build a new site profile. Generate a new node key and the CPE is ready to deploy at the site.
Turnium’s SD-WAN software automatically builds all the routing groups and tunnel configurations for you. Because this process is automated, there are no mistakes and there is no troubleshooting. No need to touch every piece of hardware or configuration to update routes or troubleshoot for possible errors, everything just works.
This depends on whether you are provisioning a single site or a multiple sites. Firewalls can be localized at each site between the LAN and the SD-WAN CPE or virtualized onto the CPE.
If you have a multiple site Private Wide Area Networks deployed for multiple customers, you can put the firewall in your data center and secure traffic at the WAN edge even before traffic enters the WAN.
Turnium Channel Partners that are hosting and managing Turnium’s Wholesale, White label SD-WAN software platform have the choice as to how to deploy Security and UTM services for your customers and whether to standardize on a single vendor or support multiple Security solutions. Turnium gives you the flexibility to build your service stack, your way, and even to build multiple solutions to address the needs of different customer segments.
You will need hardware or a virtual environment for a Management Server plus at hardware for at least two Aggregation Servers (the SD-WAN core nodes) and IP Addresses.
Aggregation Servers: A minimum of two is needed to provide High Availability (HA) in each Data Center. You’ll also need to provision sufficient Bandwidth in each DC so the Aggregators can support traffic from your customer base.
Management Server: The Management Server controls the configurations of the core node Aggregation Servers and the Edge CPE/Bonders at each site. The Management Server is not in the data path. It is recommended to locate the Management Server in a separate DC or Cloud environment from your Aggregation Servers.
IP Addresses: You’ll also need a /30 IP address for each customer. Note that a customer can have 1 or 5000 sites and it will still be sufficient to provision a single public /30 IP address per customer.
No, you do not need to use circuits from a single provider. In fact, we recommend diverse carrier circuits be used to provide better uptime for your customer.
The circuits do not have to be the same speed but there are reasonable limits. For instance, using a 100Mb and 10Mb circuit on the same CPE at the same time is not a good idea. Using the 100Mb as a primary and the 10Mb as a failover however is perfectly acceptable.
