netElastic, a leading innovator of NFV software for carriers, has recently launched an integrated suite of NFV software solutions - SD-WAN/vCPE, vBNG, vRouter and vPE.

netElastic said it has developed NFV software from the ground up to provide carrier-grade scalability. Using network disaggregation and horizontal scaling, netElastic gives carriers the ability to quickly scale control planes and data planes independently. With this massively scalable architecture, carriers can handle network traffic in the terabits, said netElastic.

netElastic's NFV products include:

 - SD-WAN/vCPE – specifically built for carriers to provide faster time-to-market, market leading scalability and performance, and significantly lower costs. The end result is increased revenue, and greater customer satisfaction and retention.

 - vBNG - delivers market-leading performance and scalability with advanced subscriber management. vBNG incorporates the capabilities and features of a traditional BNG solution along with the next-generation flexibility and cost benefits of an innovative virtualized solution.

 - vRouter - netElastic vRouter's scalability, high-performance, and easy implementation make it an ideal choice to replace or augment hardware-based CE and CPE routers, core MPLS P routers, and Internet peering routers. By providing carrier-class performance and significant cost benefits, vRouter is helping to change the economics of networking.

 - vPE - is the industry's first virtual MPLS Provider Edge router (vPE) at scale. vPE enables carriers to extend their MPLS capabilities using commercial x86 hardware that can easily and cost-effectively scale.

netElastic's vBNG is currently being trialed by CenturyLink as it upgrades the network to deploy more fiber to the home.

David Williams, SVP of Sales and Marketing, netElastic
Based on input from carriers throughout the world, netElastic's NFV products were built specifically to meet the needs of carriers and include market-leading scalability and performance, massive multi-tenancy, core network integration, and always-on high availability clusters.

Bill Walker, Director of Network Architecture and Innovation, CenturyLink 
Our initial lab trials with netElastic have been impressive. We look forward to evaluating their solutions further.
