Lanner Electronics, Versa Networks partner to enhance SD-WAN, vCPE Solutions

Lanner Electronics and Versa Network have created an integrated solution that merges Versa SD-WAN software with Lanner´s vCPE, the company said.

Legacy WAN infrastructure requires private lines and proprietary single-function hardware to deploy. When more branches are established, the complexity of network management increases as well as the hardware investment and total cost of ownership.

Lanner and Versa Networks have tested and validated an integrated solution that combines Lanner´s compact virtual CPE equipment and Versa Networks´ NFV-based SD-WAN and SD-Security software.

The joint solution enables service providers to manage an NFV-based and software-defined WAN at their network customers´ sites, instead of the traditional investment in proprietary hardware and hands-on management. The integration of Versa´s NFV-based architecture and Lanner´s hardware vCPE platform delivers flexibility and cost advantages for creating agile and profitable managed services.

Lanner Electronics Inc. is a provider of design, engineering and manufacturing services for advanced and customizable SDN and NFV network computing appliances for system integrator, service providers and application developers.

Versa Networks is an innovative vendor in the SD-WAN and SD-Security market with solutions that enable service providers and large enterprises to transform the WAN and branch networks to achieve unprecedented business advantages.
