Benu Networks releases hyperscale virtual broadband network gateway

Benu Networks, the software and solutions provider simplifying the industry´s most complex edge networks, announced the launch of its new virtual broadband network gateway (vBNG), the company said.

This new network function builds upon Benu Networks´ Software-Defined Edge (SD-Edge) Platform, which features a set of rich, virtualized functionalities that enable service providers to instantly cloudify their network, rapidly create and deliver new services, and easily scale network performance.

Modern consumer expectation and demand, particularly from the lens of a managed service provider, is constantly shifting. Buying behavior and criteria have drastically changed – gone are the days when triple play deals created great value to consumers and helped drive ARPU growth for service providers.

The vBNG, running on the Benu SD-Edge Platform, helps service providers achieve this vision by streamlining packet processing as well as separating the control plane and data plane for dynamic scaling, added agility, optimal network performance, and cost reduction.

The flexible, open architecture supports 3rd party service stitching on top of the breadth of functionality native to the vBNG. Service providers can now consolidate functions such as TDF/DPI, CGNAT, SG, and BNG, into a single virtualized platform for ultra-low latency and high performance. With the Benu Networks vBNG, service providers can go beyond just providing a ´dumb pipe´ broadband connection and instead rapidly provision value-added services that reduce churn and increase ARPU.

The vBNG virtualizes integral network functionality, empowering service providers to seamlessly transition to a cloud-based 5G ready network. Benu Networks´ technology simplifies the complexity of network optimization, helping service providers rapidly scale their offerings, manage their network, and ensure the service experience. By disaggregating legacy network structures and eliminating hardware dependencies, service providers are free to move towards a modern network, reduce costs, and improve customer experience.

With a comprehensive set of products and innovative solutions coupled with over a decade in the industry, Benu Networks delivers solutions to instantly transform legacy access networks, elastically manage services, and carve the path to 5G.
