September 3, 2019 - Lanner’s NCA-5220, a white-box appliance powered by Intel Xeon E or Core i7/i5/i3 or Pentium or Celeron (Coffee Lake) is designed to be capable of overcoming performance limitations found in SD-WAN deployments.
In order to leverage SD-WAN architecture and the existing hybrid WAN infrastructures for expediting roll-out process and for large-scale scalability, as a large-scale hybrid WAN normally consists of multi-branch routing devices, MPLS, public Internet, WiFi, and LTE, one must strategically monitor SD-WAN’s performance, particularly for real-time applications so that SD-WAN’s performance limitations can be overcome.
In terms of software and hardware integration: the software presents information such as latency, packet loss or jitter and even SLA (service level agreement) status; a capable white box vCPE hardware appliance, on the other hand, is imperative for running the said performance monitoring software.
A white-box vCPE appliance such as Lanner’s NCA-5220 monitors the performance in QoS and QoE over regional, national and global virtual enterprise networks but also monitors packet information in both current and historical data, including all the traffic from apps, network protocols, VPN-to-edge, cloud services and office Wi-Fi, enabling network diagnosis and troubleshooting.
