Network as a Service

Microland Network as a Service (NaaS) is built on its unique platform-centric model that ensures network requirements cutting across day-0 to day-2 services are provided on a modular, centrally orchestrated, open & extensible consumption driven model. Microland’s Network Assurance Platform embraces best-of-breed technologies such as Observability, AIOps and NetDevOps with a specific focus on user experience measured over the traditional Network SLAs. With our plug-n-play architecture, customers can leapfrog into their NaaS journey by seamlessly onboarding their existing investments in tools and technologies.

Tools as a Service

How many tools will we continue to invest in? Are we getting the returns from those investments? Why are we still having network issues despite those investments? These are some common questions that we hear from many enterprises and we at Microland recognize that investing in tools is not always the most optimal way to solve a problem. With Software-Defined Network (SDN) and Cloud Managed Platforms (CMP), the use case of tools has changed significantly.

Microland’s Tools as a Service framework picks up data from telemetry systems and processes it on an AIOps layer to deliver a predictive and preventive network management methodology. Our Tools as a Service approach combines NetDevOps that enables organizations to adopt better policy-based change and service request orchestration. It also helps optimize Network as a Service operations by bringing NetDevOps based on NetOps 2.0, Observability and AIOps.

LAN as a Service

Microland’s LAN as a Service enables enterprise customers to consume the Branch office network on a modular, scalable, and flexible utility model leveraging its smartBranch framework. smartBranch brings in a standardized architecture for an enterprise and comes with pick and choose options depending on the size and complexity of the Branch. Given a large proportion of employee base work out of Branch offices, our LAN as a Service smartBranch solution focuses on user experience metrics than the traditional availability metrics. Through our Platform First approach and Network Assurance Platform (NAP), we provide operational transformation and user experience management.

WAN as a Service

With SD-WAN being the standard for WAN edge device and the internet emerging as more reliable network during the pandemic, most enterprises have adopted or in the process of adopting to Internet and SD-WAN as the edge device. Microland being a vendor agnostic provider, enables enterprises to choose the right SD-WAN provider for their global requirements. Our smartBranch SD-WAN solution is tailor made for each customer’s business requirements while adopting industry standard architecture. Our smartBranch SD-WAN solution is available as a service.

The WAN as a Service approach helps customers achieve better control on the WAN cost, align the WAN service and performance optimized for the business, and deliver superior user experience for application access irrespective of the digital infrastructure. Microland’s Network assurance platform (NAP) helps customers realize these benefits with its operational transformation and user experience management capabilities.

Network Functions Virtualization (NFVs)

Microland Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solution offers customers with the option to carry out reliable business and infrastructure at its remote location without having a strong dependency on WAN connections.

Microland’s NFV services provides a single pane of glass for cloud-controlled management. It helps enterprises reduce costs by virtualizing all network function such as routing, switching, firewall, SD-WAN, DHCP, DNS, and IPAM.
