New Taipei City, Taiwan — Dec 5, 2019 — Lanner Electronics (TAIEX 6245), a global leader in SDN/NFV network appliances, today announced that the company’s uCPE Whitebox Solutions™ has won recognition from leading SD-WAN vendors. According to the IHS Markit report on “Data Center Network Equipment Market Tracker” released in October 2019, nine of the top sixteen SD-WAN players have adopted Lanner’s uCPE/vCPE hardware solutions for its high level of reliability and interoperability. Lanner Whitebox Solutions™ powered by the high core-count x86 processors offer the performance boost to run compute-intensive VNFs for multi-vendor SD-WAN topology.
In recent years, the networking ecosystem has witnessed a paradigm shift from proprietary routers to SD-WAN architecture with the wide adoption of white-box hardware deployed as vCPE/uCPE. For instance, in Oct 2019, Lanner has taken an integral part in the commercialization of SD-WAN services with Verizon and ADVA Optical Networking. The joint collaboration among Verizon, Lanner, and the eco-system partners was a milestone that enabled CSPs (communication service providers) to migrate from traditional routers to white box uCPE, reducing their expenses in hardware maintenance and facilitate the use of multiple third-party VNF on a single open platform.
“Lanner possesses a wide range of pre-validated vCPE/uCPE platforms for SD-WAN deployments. Our networking hardware enables open architecture to interoperate with mainstream third-party VNFs (virtualized network functions). That’s why leading SD-WAN vendors choose Lanner”, said Jeans Tseng, VP and GM of the Telecom Application Business Unit of Lanner. “We have established multiple collaborative partnerships with tier 1 SD-WAN vendors to understand their requirements, and we contribute our expertise in building and designing converged networking platforms to shorten the time-to-market deployments for customers”, added Jeans Tseng.
