Automation, SD-WAN and the Profindis Deployment Portal

Most SD-WAN products lack flexibility.

Rollouts until now

Large rollouts with hundreds of locations and, as a result, hundreds of network devices such as routers, switches, or firewalls take several months or even years to complete if configured manually. The rollout costs are correspondingly high. While there are tools and SD WAN products that address this problem, the solutions are too general and have little or nothing to do with the workflow of the migration and integration of the affected network. Moreover, they are often expensive and usually oversized for the requirements of a migration.

Smart automation tool with Single Point of Management

Over the course of many major projects, we have developed the Profindis Deployment Portal, a smart automation tool. Simplicity, Security and Usability guided us through this process, allowing us to create a powerful tool that has diverse and complex modes of application, yet is very easy to use, highly secure and moulded to the customer’s needs.
With our portal, everything can be controlled through a Single point of Management. Instead of copying and pasting configurations and command lines into the interface, all the functions are accessible through the click of a mouse. That is not only more convenient, but also helps eliminate human error.

Easy and safe deployment of new devices

Unlike other portals, the Deployment Portal offers the innovative ability to provision new devices automatically. While automatic configuration of running devices was within the realm of possibility, automatic configuration of a new device has not yet been offered.
A traditional approach to deploy a new device would include a technician on-site with decent networking skills. The technician’s job is mainly to plug in the device and create an initial configuration to establish a connection to the network. After that the real configuration is executed by a network engineer who accesses the device via remote.
With our tool, network devices such as routers, switches and firewalls can be configured in a few minutes, regardless of location. The technician simply has to plug in the new device and trigger the rollout process through the Portal. Thanks to the graphical, intuitive interface, even a low-skilled technician can easily operate the tool.
During the whole process the technician never has access to configurations and passwords. Therefore, rollouts are always safe, even if a third party carries them out on your behalf.
