Liberty Global chooses Benu Networks' dual stack solution

Benu Networks, a provider of innovative virtual network solutions that enable service providers to rapidly create and deliver next generation IP services, has announced that Liberty Global, the world´s largest international TV and broadband company, has purchased Benu Networks´ IPv6 Dual-Stack (DS-Lite) solution, the company said.

Benu Networks´ Virtual Service Edge (VSE) platform is the foundation of the DS-Lite solution which allows broadband service providers, such as Liberty Global, to transition to IPv6 without impacting existing subscribers´ use of IPv4 Internet or applications.

The DS-Lite solution provides a standards-based Address Family Transition Router (AFTR) capability per the IETF RFC6333 standard deployed on Benu Networks´ latest, high-performance, x86 Multiservice Edge Gateway (xMEG) platform. In addition to standard AFTR functions, the solution supports a robust provider edge routing feature set (e.g. MP-BGP, 6PE, MPLS) for tighter integration while also helping to future proof Liberty Global´s network. U

tilizing a software upgrade, the VSE platform running the DS-Lite solution can easily transition to a virtual customer premises equipment (vCPE) solution to deliver Managed Business Network or Managed Home Network services. This supports Liberty Global´s GIGAWorld initiative announced in November 2016, which aims to accelerate the digital revolution in Europe.

Benu Networks´ carrier-class Virtual Service Edge (VSE) software platform enables the rapid creation and delivery of next generation IP services over a converged infrastructure, and empowers service providers to increase revenue, expand market leadership, and meet the dynamic needs of their business, residential and mobile customers.
