Lanner's Jeans Tseng on ultra-slim uCPE with Luna-D125 and Enea NFV Access for cost-sensitive SD-WAN deployments.

 Lanner's Sven Freudenfeld gives his views on uCPE and the second generation SD-WAN, and the importance to have a scalable software platform like Enea NFV Access.

Substation automation has been essential for power grid to generate reliable and efficient energy supply to end consumers since it was first introduced in the 20th century. The early automation system was built in a traditional hierarchical architecture, and consisted of various proprietary equipments dedicated in gathering data from sensors. When the grid operators planned to expand their service coverage, the expansion often experience various technological limitations and piled up expenses in the procurement of vendor-specific equipments.

To prosper in today’s rapidly changing retail environment, merchants must meet customers on their terms. This means engaging consumers via social media, mobile commerce, text messaging, email, and other channels—including traditional brick-and-mortar shopping.

The previous evolutions of telecommunication technology, from 1G to the current 4G, have been developed to enhance communications and connectivity among human beings. Each generation was considered as a revolution in the field of information communication technology at the time it was launched. For instance, 1G pioneered the first mobile communication, despite its primitive data transfer rate. Since 2G, text messages became available and 3G allowed us to enjoy functions like web browsers and multimedia streaming began to emerge. The current 4G has been the tipping point of cloud computing, mobile Apps, social networks and SaaS (software as a service). The next generation, 5G, has been anticipated to realize the true potential of IoT (Internet of Things), which was also thought to be the first cellular technology to bridge between devices. However, some enterprises have already launched their IoT services and applications to customers in order to get ahead of the increasingly competitive market, and the reason behind their successful launch is Private LTE.

Sven Freudenfeld, CTO Lanner Electronics announces Verizon's uCPE 2.0. Verizon to adopt Lanner's SD-WAN white box platform to drive the next generation uCPE. Powered by Intel™s x86 Atom family processors and designed for small and medium deployments, the modular design of these platforms aggregates LTE and WiFi connectivity to meet "Low Touch" provisioning and future-proof scalability to significantly reduce OPEX while improving business competitiveness for SD-WAN deployments. Live with Intel® Network Builders at the SDN & NFV World Congress 2019 in The Hague.

IIoT technologies can accelerate smart grid automation and deliver unprecedented energy optimization. For example, substation applications like predictive load monitoring, pre-emptive switching, and high-accuracy voltage transformation can generate new levels of efficiency and uptime.
