Backhaul Management

With the deployment of connectivity islands at different locations and with the distribution of testbeds to different locations, in order to be able to manage in a coherent way the developed infrastructure, a new SD-WAN solution was developed able to:

  • Backhaul selection – select on a flow level one of the available backhaul connections, dynamically adapting to the available links and resources;
  • Secure communication – use VPN UDP and TCP tunneling to encrypt the data traffic between the different locations as well as to assure the privacy and security of the all infrastructure;
  • Dynamic policies – a centralized controller is providing end-to-end policies for the establishment of the backhaul
