Network Deployment Services
Our experts have years of experience with all aspects of network deployment, from planning to complete optimization and all stages in between. Through S.I.M.P.L.E., we can assist clients in creating an effective roadmap for the deployment. We will also help in various tasks leading to the deployment, such as mapping network topology and fabric, network configuration and assessment of practices, policy development, and the accomplishment of automation requirements. We aim to help our clients achieve a smooth deployment with the best time-to-value (TTV).
Network Optimization Services
Our network optimization services are focused on ensuring that customers are able to reach and leverage the full capabilities of their SDN. Our BTA team assists businesses in optimizing their network through our S.I.M.P.L.E. methodology. Through extensive planning, careful testing and execution, and recommendations for improvement, BTA helps organizations achieve the most optimal state in their networks. We want to make the process as S.I.M.P.L.E. as we can. Unlike our consulting and advisory services, our network optimization services are 100% performed by our team.

Benefits of Software-Defined Networks
Software-defined networks (SDN) gives users full control of a network through software. Unlike the traditional network setup, SDN does not need any additional hardware or equipment to function. It can run solely on a virtual network or be integrated to control existing hardware. It is responsible for all traffic, data, and processes performed through a network.
Software-defined networks are innovative and are continuously being developed. They consist of various types of networks with different functions and benefits to secure increased security, functionality, and convenience for its users.
SDDC (Software-Defined Data Center)
A Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) is used to store all necessary servers, communication devices, networks, and more within a completely virtualized platform. It modernizes the concept of traditional data centers, which are often composed of various technologies and equipment used to control and manage networks. Adopting an SDDC means that networks and related processes will be fully hosted virtually through a cohesive software. There are many benefits to deploying an SDDC. Here are just some of the primary benefits:
Unified and S.I.M.P.L.E. platform
Having an SDDC eliminates the need to walk around a data center and manually perform all the necessary processes. With an SDDC, all tasks can be performed through a unified software, which saves time and effort on the user’s end.
The SDDC can function with minimal management and monitoring. One of the most defining features of an SDDC is its ability to perform tasks swiftly, compared to a human worker. As it functions properly on its own, a business’ in-house IT personnel can focus on more urgent matters and direct their attention towards other opportunities.
SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network)
The Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is responsible for connecting users to certain applications that can be found in data centers. Unlike the traditional WAN setup, the SD-WAN offers increased flexibility as it can connect users to all nearby data centers, whether they are onsite centers or virtualized platforms. It provides full efficiency and agility. Aside from data centers, it can also be used to access SaaS services and public or private clouds. Users can enjoy various benefits of adopting an SD-WAN:
Despite having an increased field of access, users can still enjoy high-quality and protection, as SD-WAN enforces increased security against all malicious and suspicious activity upon connecting to a nearby data source.
SD-WAN gives users access to various data sources, including their cloud-based platforms, frequently used applications, and new code rollouts quickly and with less risk of error.
SDA (Software-Defined Access)
Software-Defined Access (SDA) was designed to accommodate enhanced management and optimization for a network. By using an SDA, all users can enjoy a higher level of security, increased control over their networks, optimized management features, and extensive analysis to determine whether there is anything that must be improved or changed. The SDA is aimed towards making the user experience S.I.M.P.L.E.r and easier to work with, especially for businesses and companies who want their in-house IT personnel to work on various processes and tasks at a time. IT teams and businesses can benefit greatly from adopting an SDA. Here are some of the top benefits that it has to offer:
Networks can be more effectively managed through segmentation, which allows personnel to monitor workloads carefully and separately to identify threats ahead of time and isolate those threats from other workloads.
SDA simplifies network management and provides opportunities to improve its operations, by discovering any vulnerabilities and inefficiencies through its analytic features.
IaaC (Infrastructure as a Code)
Infrastructure as a Code (IaaC) is an innovative approach to managing and monitoring network systems. NetDevOps utilizes IaaC in managing its network systems due to the useful benefits and efficiency that it offers. IaaC aims to enhance user experience by providing increased speed and agility in performing its necessary processes. Its advanced features are essential in performing the iterative processes of automated testing, QA, and deployment of changes within a network.
IaaC eliminates the stress of managing a network while improving its performance, allowing users to obtain consistent, accurate, and automated management over their networks as they work on different tasks.
The Multi-Domain Orchestration provides an innovative and stress-free experience for all users by delivering excellent performance through an automated system. Multi-Domain Orchestration essentially functions by integrating an automated system into an SDN, which allows it to function efficiently with minimal management. It is optimized and designed to enhance the user experience, connecting to an SDA, SD-WAN, and SDDC environment with ease.
By adopting a Multi-Domain Orchestration, users will be able to experience the efficiency and convenience of an automated system while ensuring that their network continues to perform at its best. Multi-Domain Orchestration is best used for accelerated policy control, allowing better management over gaps, inefficiencies, and monitoring.
