TAIPEI, TAIWAN, November 16, 2021 – Leading provider of advanced network appliances and rugged industrial computers Lanner Inc., is pleased to announce its partnership with EPS Global and netElastic to expand into the vBNG and CGNAT market.
With millions of people working and learning from home, the global pandemic has placed an unprecedented demand on communication networks, and many network operators are setting up to stay ahead of the continuous demand. This acceleration can be made possible through network function virtualization (NFV) with benefits including increased scalability, greater flexibility, and lower costs. This demand has further driven increased usage of virtual broadband network gateways (vBNGs) and carrier grade NAT (vCGNAT).
The netElastic CGNAT appliance is a solution for the issue of global IPv4 address shortage, while maintaining the existing telecom infrastructure. A netElastic CCNAT router provides all the gateway services of a NAT appliance, in addition to boosting available network address space and delivers critical logging capabilities.
The NCA-5520, powered by 2nd gen Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family and Intel® C626 or C621 chipset, features optimized computing power and virtualization capacity in a compact 1U form factor with support for up to 320GB DDR4 system memory at 2933/2666/2400/2133 MHz (by CPU). It delivers a multitude of advanced networking features for maximizing packet processing efficiency and cryptography acceleration.
The CGNAT appliance, NCA-5520 is equipped with 4x NIC module slots, and two or three NCS2-IXM407 10G SFP+ modules. The NCS2-IXM407 is a 4-port 10GbE SFP+ NIC module based on Intel® XL710 Ethernet controller and equipped with a PCIe x8 Gen. 3 gold finger and 4x 10GbE bandwidth expandability.
