Ultra-Flexible Blades Fulfill SDN/NFV Implementation in Datacenter


The rising adoption of SDN and NFV in telecommunication industry has driven the demands for consolidated and integrated hardware architectures for networking purposes, including servers, switches and routers. The software approaches are favored by telecommunication sectors as SDN and NFV help reduce implementations of proprietary hardware equipments. By leveraging the benefits of SDN and NFV, carriers are gaining lower TCO, higher efficiencies and increased flexibility in network managements.

To meet the next-generation network requirements, Lanner has introduced HybridTCA network appliances: HTCA-6600 and HTCA-6200. HTCA-6600 is ideal for NFV DPI Server which can afford massive DPI parsing capability, while HTCA-6200 is ideal for Edge Router with NFV Application.

In order to enhance scalability of the HybridTCA appliances above, Lanner also announces its latest HTCA-compatible and swappable HLM-series carrier-grade blades lineup that provides enhanced redundancy, interoperability, flexibility, bandwidth and performance boosts. For instance, Lanner’s HLM-1020 switching blade comes with dual 100GbE CXP ports and 20 10GbE SFP+ ports. These blades also pave the way for seamless migration in the near future.
