Anuta NCX is the only Network Orchestrator that offers:
Yes, NCX is delivered as Virtual Appliance (OVA or ISO format). It can be installed on your favorite hypervisor or on a stand-alone server. With NCX 5.0, you can also install in a container.
Anuta does not provide a SaaS based solution at this time. Anuta offers Software solution only to SP, Enterprise and MSP customers. Anuta’s customer in-turn can deploy the Software in their cloud offerings and provide a SaaS solution to their customers. Example: An MSP offering managed service offering to their customers can deploy Anuta NCX solution and offer a Self-serve network service catalog for the managed services.
Yes, please see here.
Anuta NCX orchestrates and integrates third-party VNFs so that Service Providers can package a vCPE solution and offer to their customers. See Virtual CPE for more information.

Anuta NCX ships with YANG models for 100+ platforms from 35+ vendors. For minor revisions (say going from ASA 9.0 to ASA 9.1), customers and partners can update the YANG models themselves within hours. If there is a major change (from ASA 8.2 to ASA 8.3), Anuta team can add the YANG models within couple of days. For a completely new type of device (e.g. Packet Shaper), it may take two weeks to add the YANG models. See YANG Models page.
Yes, Anuta NCX has built-in device models for many traditional/legacy platforms that support CLI and SNMP. Unlike other orchestrators, NCX doesn’t require customers to upgrade to a specific software or hardware version. NCX works with your current infrastructure.
No, NCX doesn’t require an agent on each network device. NCX communicates with the device over the management plane using CLI, SNMP, XML, NETCONF, RESTAPI etc.
For larger deployments (> 1000 devices), NCX supports a distributed server-agent architecture. Each Agent can handle 1000 devices and hence the solution can scale horizontally with your infrastructure. For a small deployment or during the POC, the same NCX virtual appliance can act as a server and an agent.
Anuta Networks NCX is an industry leading software solution designed to deliver complete network service.
