After using 128 Technology’s version of software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) to connect four of its own data centers in Asia, NEC Networks and System Integration Corporation (NESIC) decided to resell the technology to its own 5,000 enterprise customers.
NESIC is the systems integration unit within NEC. Both NESIC and 128 Technology are marketing the product as SD-WAN because it solves the need to optimally connect WANs and data centers, securely. However, 128 Technology generally doesn’t like to use the term “SD-WAN.” 128 Technology doesn’t use tunnels or overlays. Instead it uses routing that is native to the network and is session-stateful.
