Lanner will showcase flexible, reliable and high-performance network security solutions for carrier-class NFV at Broadband Forum Asia on April 11-12, at Crowne Plaxa, Kowloon East, Hong Kong. The demonstration will include Lanner’s NFVi-ready appliance FW-8896, Wind River Titanium Cloud NFV infrastructure (NFVI) software platform and Trend Micro’s Virtual Network Function Suite, to present high availability, scale-on-demand network security function for CSPs from premise, edge to core network.
The NFVi-ready Lanner FW-8896 is a 2U network appliance empowered by dual Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3/v4 CPUs (a total of 28 cores), C612 chipset, 512GB DDR4 memory, built-in crypto engine and a total of 8 NIC module slots for bandwidth expansions and flexible LAN communications.FW-8896 is pre-validated with Wind River Titanium Cloud to ensure an interoperable solution optimized for carrier-grade NFV deployment and helps accelerate time-to-market for service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs). Titanium Server is a carrier grade NFVI software solution that is designed to meet the stringent “always on” requirements of the telecom industry. With Titanium Server as the NFV infrastructure software foundation, the telecom industry can take full advantage of rapid service deployment while ensuring the Carrier Grade uptime and strict reliability mandated by telecom networks.
To offer flexible, reliable, and high-performance virtual network security functions for carrier-class NFV, Trend Micro will introduce its Virtual Network Function Suite in the upcoming summit. Trend Micro’s VNF suite comprises two types of components: virtual network functions (VNFs) and element management system (EMS). The VNFs scan network traffic and performs designated inspection functions, such as intrusion detection and prevention, URL filtering, and application and device identifications. The EMS manages logs, updates, and policy configurations of multiple VNFs and integrates with the management and orchestration (MANO) systems to manage VNF life cycle. By leveraging Intel® Data Plane Development Kit, Virtual Network Function Suite achieves tens of Gigabits per second in virtualization infrastructure, providing an enhancement for carrier-grade NFV environments.
