BT Chooses NE-ONE for SD-WAN Multi-Cloud WAN Emulation

Programmable, Automated Software Defined Test Network gives insight on how SD-WAN technology can transform customer and user experience.


June 12th 2022

Calnex Solutions plc, an industry leader in network synchronization and network emulation, today announced that it has expanded its relationship with BT, one of the world’s leading communications services companies, to provide powerful multi-cloud WAN Emulation.  BT’s Dynamic Network Services (DyNS) Explorer Lab first became an NE-ONE Customer in 2019. It has since implemented NE-ONE as its preferred WAN Emulation solution to power a safe, agile platform in which to demonstrate the value of of purchasing SD-WAN solutions from BT and help enterprises accelerate their digital transformation.

“We’ve invested in creating a world-leading environment so that customers can validate the potential benefits of a range of SD-WAN technologies to distinguish between hype and reality,” said Konstantinos Rigas, Head of Overlay Products at Global, BT. “NE-ONE continues to play a critical part in this process and has enabled us to build a wide range of pre-modelled sophisticated test networks and simulations for customers to use.”

“Enterprises wanting to truly understand the benefits of SD-WAN need to look no further than BT’s Explorer Lab,” said Peter White, NE-ONE Product Manager. “We’re thrilled that NE-ONE is helping BT to create accurate, controllable and repeatable test networks in which enterprises can get a first-hand view on what deploying SD-WAN means for their applications and users.”

BT’s DyNS Explorer Lab uses NE-ONE to:

  • Create real-world enterprise network topologies including branch to data center, data center to data center, branch to branch or any combination of these
  • Apply normal and degraded network conditions to one or more network links in which to validate how customer applications work with SD-WAN
  • Simulate network degradation including limiting available bandwidth, increasing latency, randomizing jitter, applying loss or creating errors
  • Automatically start, update and stop the test network using NE-ONE’s RESTful API

NE-ONE provides organizations with a way to create real-world network conditions in which to analyze, predict and verify application performance before deploying applications into potentially challenging network environments.  The insight it provides allows businesses to effectively manage their digital products and brand, reducing deployment costs and risk, mitigating remediation expense and impact to resources at the same time as improving quality.

Organisations that would like to learn more about NE-ONE can visit booth #719 at Cisco Live, Las Vegas from Monday 13th to Thursday 16th June, 2022.
