Entry uCPE SD-WAN Appliances

Virtualization is transforming the network industry through enabling increased efficiency and providing unprecedented flexibility, scalability and adaptability in addressing market needs. Software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) are two key interdependent capabilities accelerating this transformation and when deployed together with edge computing creates virtual or universal customer premises equipment, known as vCPE and uCPE.

Current vCPE and uCPE platforms bring the power of the cloud to the networking industry and cover a wide range of network applications, including SD-WAN and 5G. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) provides high-performance connectivity at reduced costs, and advanced services such as Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP), real-time connectivity service restoration…etc. While 5G and Wi-Fi 6 technologies are providing capabilities to enhance enterprise networks and expand IoT deployment. 5G provides a powerful option to manage physically separated corporate locations, while Wi-Fi 6 provides increased data transfer rates and improved connectivity across building interiors.

Lanner’s desktop network appliances are designed to maximize SD-WAN performance while providing robust features and advanced configurations. For network virtualization, the multiple CPU core counts and SR-IOV are essential to optimizing performance and promoting interoperability on network virtualized functions and services. Multiple Gigabit LAN ports and 10GbE fiber support are important for reliable, consistent, high-speed network connectivity at branch offices or mid-sized enterprise networks.

Lanner’s desktop network appliances meet telecommunication mobile user requirements with wireless connectivity in multiple 5G and Wi-Fi options. Additionally, NCA-1516 provides optional PoE+ support for wireless video cameras and access points within wired/wireless integrated surveillance management scenarios. Lastly, power supply with dying gasp feature will assist network administrators on tracing and troubleshooting networks of all sizes, from a school campus to enterprise-level networks.
