Lanner to Showcase VNF Security Solution for Carrier-grade NFV at 2016 Intel Asia Network Summit

[November 1, 2016] –Lanner Electronics (TAIEX 6245), a global leader in SDN/NFV network appliances, announced that it will premiere its showcase of flexible, reliable and high-performance network security solutions for carrier-class NFV at 2016 Intel Asia Network Summit on November 1st in Beijing, China. The demonstration will include Lanner’s carrier-grade HTCA-6000 series platform, Wind River Titanium Server 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.

In this joint showcase for carrier-grade NFV, Lanner will present its NEBS-compliant HTCA-6000 series, featuring multiple CPU blades, swappable network I/O blades, high-speed switching and full redundancy. HTCA-6000 series support up to 6 CPU blades, each of them designed with dual Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2690 v3/v4 CPUs (24 cores per blade, a total of 144 cores across 6 blades) and 16x DDR4 R-DIMMs. The swappable network I/O blades can be configured with 1/10/40/100 GbE network ports in an array of QSFP, SFP+ or copper combinations. With built-in BCM switch fabric, inter-communications between each CPU blade can achieve a bandwidth of 720 Gbps. HTCA-6000 series is also pre-validated with Wind River Titanium Server 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.
