Accelerate your Deployment with Pre-validated SDN/NFV Solutions
With the advanced network virtualization technologies like SDN and NFV, service providers and carriers benefit from the time-to-market flexibility and the service agility while reducing TCOs. However, the roll-out of new SDN/NFV services through VNF involves comprehensive validation and integration, which could impact the lead-time schedule or miss potential opportunities.
To meet the mission-critical demand for enterprise networks, ecosystem-ready SDN/NFV solutions require highly integrated solutions involving hardware like vCPE appliances and software including NFVI platform, VNF, Orchestrators and BSS/OSS. Lanner supplies the virtualization-optimized open network platforms pre-validated with leading software providers, making these appliances optimized for accelerating the deployments of SD-WAN, SD-security, QoS and other SDN/NFV deployment.
SD-WAN and VNF
SD-WAN comes with app-layer intelligence and service chaining in WAN connections between branch offices and headquarters/data centers. With SD-WAN, business operators enjoy the flexibility and open-cloud approach to manage and control VNF deployments for their WAN connections and other network services.
Lanner and leading VNF partners have tested and validated integrated solutions that merges Lanner’s compact virtual CPE appliances and industry-leading VNF software, offering flexibility and cost advantages for creating agile and profitable managed services.
128T Networking Platform
NFV infrastructure is designed to meet the stringent “always-on”, high-availability requirements by the telecom industry. Joined by open software standards including carrier grade Linux, real-time KVM, carrier grade plug-in like OpenStack®, Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK), and accelerated virtual switching, NFVI platform ensures the service uptime, compatibility, performance and security that are essential for service provider networks.
Lanner’s NFVI-ready platforms have undergone a comprehensive testing and validation process with carrier-grade NFVI software optimized for accelerating time-to-market for service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs).
OSS/BSS and Orchestrators
To shorten NFV deployment with zero provisioning and flexible service delivery, it is crucial to provide an automated orchestrator and OSS/BSS platform optimized for accelerated service delivery and efficient order-to-cash cycles.
Lanner collaborates with leading Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solution providers that enable service providers to rapidly create, deploy and monetize virtualized, multivendor value-added services in the network with a NFV orchestrator and OSS/BSS self-service portal.
