Enea and Lanner Electronics announced a collaboration focused on providing affordable and flexible uCPE platforms for entry-level SD-WAN and security use cases.
The platform is based on Lanner's broad range of Intel x86-based Whitebox Solutions hardware portfolio, and Enea NFV Access, a virtualization and management platform with minimal software footprint designed for uCPEs. The complete solution scales from the slim entry-level LUNA-D125 featuring a 2-core Intel Atom CPU and 2GB of memory, to high-end Xeon devices such as the NCA-4010.
The scalability translates directly into cost-efficiency for high volume deployments, typical for business areas such as retail, point-of-sales and logistics, said Enea. Pre-integrated and verified, the platform significantly shortens time-to-deployment for CSP's and enterprises looking to modernize their network architecture with an open and flexible platform.
Enea NFV Access is a uniquely scalable NFVi software platform turning any white box into a fully managed uCPE. It is not based on data center software like OpenStack, instead it is designed for edge applications and uses NETCONF to provide the management functionality. Using only open and standardized interfaces it runs any VNF on any white box uCPE and integrates with any orchestration solution through a REST API.
