July 1, 2019 - Lanner Electronics announced that Lanner will collaborate with Intel to deliver a verified Intel Select Solution for uCPE. This integrated and tested hardware/software solution combines Lanner compute; and networking COTS platforms pre-configurated with ADVA’s Ensemble Connector virtualization platform. The uCPE configuration is intended to accelerate the process of selecting and deploying the uCPE needed for today’s SDN/NFV applications.
Lanner NCA-4020 is the whitebox network platform slated for verification as an Intel Select Solution for uCPE (expected in Q3’18 ). Optimized as a uCPE platform for network virtualization, NCA-4020 features 8/12/16-core Intel Xeon D-2100 processors, 10x GbE RJ45 (8 Port PoE+), 4x 10G SFP, Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) and Intel QuickAssist Technology (Intel QAT) for improved network performance. The NCA-4020 delivers significant performance enhancement in running multiple virtual network functions VNFs in SD-WAN, reduces testing and validation efforts, and accelerates time-to-market deployment.
The Intel Select Solution for uCPE is a reference design that enables OEMs, system integrators, and service providers to deliver SD-WAN solutions to their customers in a completed offering to meet or exceed required performance and capability specifications. The Intel Select Solution for uCPE is designed to accelerate network transformation and help communications service providers and enterprises respond to evolving network needs.
Intel Select Solutions for uCPE now includes ADVA’s Ensemble Connector as a scalable network operating system, which is responsible for providing a framework for network connectivity as well as management and orchestration of highly distributed Virtual Network Functions (VNFs). The virtualization platform provides the network OS layer that provides the NFV framework on the Lanner COTS platform.
