Enterprises are undergoing digital transformation driven by widespread outsourcing of IT infrastructure, accelerated adoption of cloud services, motivating the need for secure connectivity, and ever-present demands for overall cost reduction. This opens a new window of opportunity for communications service providers (CSPs) and managed service providers (MSPs) to offer high-value add managed services to enable this transition.
Universal SD-Edge solutions include white box hardware, DANOS-Vyatta edition running as host OS and hypervisor for uCPE device or x86 server, and host 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.
Universal SD-Edge solutions enable various use cases of WAN edge connectivity between branch offices, enterprise, to data center, private/public/hybrid cloud. Scalable secure integrated compute, storage, and networking platforms allow a range of CPE functions virtualized at the customer premise, in the data center, or both.
The Universal SD-Edge solutions have been optimized for cloud connectivity, at the branch and cloud edges of the network. The DANOS-Vyatta edition for Universal SD-Edge is highly tuned and optimized software for high speed packet processing functions achieving highest throughput data rate. The combination of running a host NOS with ability to drive 10 Gbps+ line rate throughput per physical Core and an advanced set of networking features including support for 3rd party VNFs are some of the unique capabilities and key differentiators the platform provides for NFV adopters.
