Denver, USA, September 25, 2018 – Lanner Electronics (TAIEX 6245), a global leader in SDN/NFV network appliances, today at NFV & Carrier SDN 2018 announce that Lanner’s new vCPE/uCPE platform NCA-4020 is verified as an Intel® Selection Solution for uCPE. The uCPE platform will not only help communication service providers (CommSPs) reduce complexity required by hardware and software integration, but also accelerate time-to-market deployment of SD-WAN, SD-Security and other SDN/NFV Applications.
The Lanner vCPE/uCPE NCA-4020 has successfully completed extensive rounds of testing to qualify as an Intel Select Solution for uCPE. Optimized as a uCPE platform for SD-WAN, NCA-4020 features four 16-core Intel® Xeon® D-2100 processors, 10x GbE RJ45 (8 Port PoE+) and 4x 10G SFP. With Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) and Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT) for improved network performance, the optimized Lanner NCA-4020 hardware can deliver significant performance enhancement in running multiple virtual network functions VNFs in SD-WAN, reduce testing and validation efforts, and accelerate time-to-market deployment.
Both DPDK and Intel QAT are core technology components of the Intel Select Solution for uCPE reference design. Intel requires compliant platforms to implement DPDK software and provide sufficient connectivity to the Intel QAT engines for common compute-intensive VNF workloads in order to accelerate development time and deliver higher system performance.
“As a verified Intel Select Solution for uCPE, Lanner’s NCA-4020 offers workload-optimized, easy-to-deploy combination of leading hardware and software as well as access to an ecosystem delivering a large number of tested and optimized virtual network functions (VNFs),” said Jeans Tseng, VP and GM of the Telecom Application Business Unit at Lanner. “With the NCA-4020, Lanner now has a new generation, virtualization optimized uCPE platform to help communications service providers deliver new services to enterprises and small businesses.
“The Intel Select Solution for uCPE is designed to accelerate network transformation and help communications service providers and enterprises respond to evolving network needs more effectively and rapidly,” said Dan Rodriquez, vice president and general manager of the Communications Infrastructure Division in Intel’s Data Center Group. “By verifying the NCA-4020 as an Intel Select Solution for uCPE, Lanner is helping ensure its customers are able to reduce complexity and accelerate time-to-deployment of CPE solutions.”
