OmniClouds has tapped Nuage Networks' SD-WAN solution for deployment across the Middle East and Africa to help its customers' cloud migrations.

Nokia's Nuage Networks will build and operate its SD-WAN 2.0 network to help OmniCloud's customers connect to its enterprise customers over a large coverage area.

Among the various flavors of SD-WAN vendors, Nuage Networks has designed its SD-WAN platform to be used by service providers that want to white label it in order to offer SD-WAN to their own end customers.
