Eric Clelland, SVP, Sales, Marketing, and Business Development, Gluware, said: “Gluware deployments allow for traditional networks to “cap” traditional deployments while gradually introducing new solutions.

Gluware automates the network as it exists today.”

Gluware solutions provide new world scalability and economics. Multi-Vendor and Multi-Domain represents the way networks actually exist. There isn’t room for proprietary solutions when running a best of breed network and wanting flexibility to change vendors.”

Lee Doyle, Principal Analyst, Doyle Research, said: “Multi-vendor orchestration across physical and virtual network environments is a critical challenge for most large enterprises and service providers.”
