Juniper Networks has partnered with French managed services provider PYXYA to provide its Contrail SD-WAN solution to meet what it says is growing enterprise demand for secure branch connectivity.

PYXYA, based in Lyon, France, is a disruptor to the traditional managed services model, one that provides an over-the-top (OTT) secure SD-WAN service using Contrail SD-WAN on existing network infrastructures.

Juniper says its automation, multi-tenancy and role-based access control helped win the business over multiple vendors – and it also aligned with PYXYA’s business model to support different tiers of providers with a full range of services.

And Juniper says PYXYA’s goal is to be a service provider for enterprise customers as well as system integrators and managed service providers who act as resellers for its solution, and it is also well-positioned to support government entities as it can provide local support with on-premises and cloud solutions – a common factor in providing secure hosting for highly sensitive public information and gaining public sector certification.

“We are a young, dynamic and disruptive entrant to the cloud supplier market. Our OTT model is a new approach to cloud service delivery and we have found the perfect partner in Juniper Networks,” said Marc del Fabbro, Chief Executive Officer, PYXYA.

“They came to us with a solution that had an open API enabling us to integrate the system into our environment, automate it, and customise it, so that we can differentiate our solution in the market.

“Our aim is to develop fresh and innovative solutions - such as SD-Branch - offering enhanced security, LAN, Wi-Fi and AI services to clients across multiple sectors. We are confident that Juniper Networks will accompany us every step of the way to our “AI-driven Networks” as a Service solution to quickly evolve the French WAN market.”

As part of the partnership, PYXYA aims to leverage the broader capabilities of Contrail SD-WAN to move from SD-WAN to SD-Branch services in the future.

PYXYA’s portal now allows control of the WAN infrastructure, as well as the universalisation software of the universal PyBox. Its solution is evolving to integrate the management of local network infrastructures and Wi-Fi.

And the company intends to then migrate its solution to manage all the IT infrastructure of the site through the SD-Branch.

“PYXYA is a forward-looking service provider, taking an innovative approach to managed services. They allow customers the flexibility to leverage the infrastructure of their choice to offer over the top services, including SD-WAN and SD-Branch,” said Sally Bament, VP of Service Provider Strategy, Juniper Networks.

“This is a relatively new trend which we expect will continue to grow in the coming years. Companies like PYXYA provide a new kind of service model aimed at not just enterprise customers, but also systems integrators and other service providers, and I’m delighted they have chosen Juniper as their partner on this journey.”
