Aricent partners with Lanner Electronics to create SD-WAN uCPE solution

May 23, 2019 - Aricent, a design and engineering company, announced a partnership with Lanner Electronics., a supplier of Whitebox Solutions network communication platforms, to enable SD-WAN functionality on universal customer premise equipment (uCPE) platforms for small, medium and large enterprises.

Through the partnership, Aricent’s SD-WAN uCPE operating system (OS) with Orchestrator will run on Lanner’s LUNA (Lanner Universal Network Appliance) series of Intel x86 Network Appliance platforms. The platform supports Aricent’s SD-WAN virtual network function (VNF), which is built on Aricent’s virtual router (vRouter) and the virtual firewall. The uCPE OS is cloud-native, and supports containerized, low-resource footprint workloads for uCPE deployments.

According to IHS Markit, the uCPE market will grow to $1.16 billion by 2021, a CAGR of 76.4 percent. uCPE is especially attractive to enterprises that increasingly recognize the challenges posed by conventional WAN infrastructure – network complexity, lack of agility and skyrocketing costs. By contrast, uCPE supports software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV).

According to IHS Markit, the uCPE market will grow to $1.16 billion by 2021, a CAGR of 76.4 percent. uCPE supports software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) for service adoption and delivery, giving enterprises WAN access that integrates multiple device functionality in one solution.
