IP Infusion introduces Open SD-Edge platform powered by DANOS-Vyatta edition, promoted by AT&T
Universal Customer Premise Equipment (uCPE) platform enables Service Providers to deliver a variety of software-defined applications in the cloud with simplicity
SANTA CLARA, May 19, 2020 – IP Infusion, a leading provider of network disaggregation solutions for telecom and data communications services, today announced it will deliver and support DANOS-Vyatta edition for Universal Customer Premise Equipment (uCPE) with the introduction of the Open SD-Edge platform. By leveraging DANOS-Vyatta edition software, which is widely deployed at scale for multiple, white box use cases in AT&T’s production network, service providers and their customers can exploit the many benefits of open networking and disaggregation.
DANOS-Vyatta edition is based on DANOS open source version of AT&T’s Vyatta code. DANOS is the first carrier-targeted network operating system (NOS) project hosted by the Linux Foundation. By pre-integrating with the FRR (FRRouting) and DPDK (Data Plane Development Kit) projects, DANOS facilitates evaluations and Proof of Concepts for VNFs and applications.
The Open SD-Edge platform supports a range of uCPE use cases and delivers a platform for operational simplicity, agile deployment of virtualized services and lower CAPEX, leading to reduced total cost of ownership. It includes white box hardware, DANOS-Vyatta edition, and hosts third-party Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs) for SD-WAN, routing, VPN, and firewall support for VNFs on a general-purpose appliance. This eliminates the need for stacks of proprietary equipment and software that require specialized IT skills to install, configure, and maintain.
Under the agreement with AT&T, IP Infusion is the value-added integrator of DANOS-Vyatta edition and has the rights to sell DANOS-Vyatta edition as a commercial solution and provide ongoing support for carrier customers who need additional integration expertise. It also allows provides the flexibility for users to choose from multiple hardware vendors.
DANOS-Vyatta edition now covers cell site router (CSR) and uCPE applications in a common platform for both wide area and local area networking.
The three new Open SD-Edge use cases planned for delivery in 2020 are:
Available in virtual form-factor to securely extend VPN to the public or private cloud and deliver scalable WAN, Security and CG-NAT functions.
Available in a white-box or virtual form-factor for securely interconnecting branch offices and migrating workloads to the cloud.
Cloud managed uCPE for enterprise/branch connectivity including security, SD-WAN and WAN optimization use cases, with the flexibility to add VNF services from third parties.
“As a leader in disaggregated networking, IP Infusion’s Open SD-Edge platform allows our customers a streamlined path to migrate to Software-Defined services, simplify network infrastructure and management, while future-proofing their networks as their business needs evolve,” said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO, IP Infusion. “Today’s agile businesses require support at lightning speeds. With industry standard hardware infused with open source software, and virtualized technology, our customers can realize unprecedented agility and automation at a lowest cost per bit.”
The Cloud Services Router and uCPE solutions are now available for demonstration in the Azure cloud marketplace and as a VNF (VM) for server environments.
