The hypercompetitive environment and outcome-based adoption of digital transformation are changing the way enterprises implement network functions and capabilities. Experience-based, virtual and loT applications are setting up the network to become high-performing, more sophisticated, and self-aware. The need for automation along with the multi-cloud spread of workload dynamics, DevOps, and zero-trust security is now redefining techno-commercial and hybrid orientation of Software defined Networks (SD).
Sensus is HCLTech's SD framework that covers end-to-end data center network transformation through automated policy enforcement, intelligent abstraction, and hybrid interconnects across a multi-cloud and on-premise environment.

Sensus Solution Levers
Open Vendor ecosystem
An open API-based agile framework that allows seamless integration with third-party tools, providing a platform and vendor agnostic end-to-end SDN environment.
Centralized Policy Enforcement & Control
Sensus provides a universal controller for unified management and orchestration of different sites and controllers. It offers a single plane of glass to enforce consistent inter-site network and security policies across on-premise and cloud infrastructure.
Intelligent Monitoring & Analytics
Sensus offers unified visibility and analytics capabilities to provide accurate real-time insights into the multi-cloud data center environment. This results in faster troubleshooting, cost-effective migration of applications, and improved operational efficiency and security.
Real Time Topology Mapping & Discovery
Sensus provides accurate real-time insight into application flow behavior with the underlying network components through dynamic topology maps. It offers the correct dynamic map for any task or problem area in seconds where one can visualize infinite detail for quick troubleshooting.
Multi-Cloud Network Model
Sensus framework offers hybrid interconnect, facilitating application mobility and hybrid network consolidation. It provides network liquidity to support workload portability in a multi-cloud ecosystem with zero downtime
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)
Sensus framework offers NFV which performs intelligent abstraction and transforms the network functions into software and treats the underlay as the backplane of moving packets. This allows the organization to add or delete application and service capacity on demand and simplify the planning and scaling of the network.
HCLTech Key Value-Adds
The Sensus framework offers the right mix of network infrastructure for the right applications at the right economics, optimizing your operations and taking you from a siloed to a composable network.
A dedicated state-of-the-art SDN-ready lab to install and test SDN solutions from different vendors. This ensures proven interoperability between different vendor products, helping you confidently adopt SDN.
Automated Network Assessment
Sensus offers an industry-leading SDN readiness assessment of your current network infrastructure. It provides a practical approach to SDN and network automation through a set of actionable recommendations.
RPA Based Orchestration
Sensus offers seamless integration with HCLTech’s network automation tool, NetBOT. NetBOT orchestrates automated problem remediation based on IT events. Automation and rule-based robotics significantly reduce the troubleshooting time and manual effort involved.
Multiple Customer Deployments
Sensus is based on HCLTech’s proven capability — we’ve completed multiple SDN deployments on various vendor platforms across geos and verticals, giving us a deep understanding of SDN technology.
