Versa Networks Teams with EMC for 'vCPE-in-a-Box' Solution

Network virtualization vendor, Versa Networks teamed with EMC to develop managed network and security solution using virtualized network functions (VNF) and x86-based open hardware. Versa has tested and validated the interoperability of its FlexVNF software on EMC's NFV Infrastructure® (NFVi) platform to create an integrated "vCPE in a box".

According to Versa Networks, the combined stack is designed to enable service providers to create a wide range of managed services that combine low-cost virtualized customer premises equipment (vCPE) with advanced network and security services in the telco cloud. The solution supports a variety of Virtual Infrastructure Management choices, including VMware VIO with NSX and ESX, and Red Hat OpenStack Platform (OSP) with OpenStack Open vSwitch (OVS) and KVM. 

David Hudson, General Manager of Telecom Modernization at EMC Corporation
EMC has decades of experience helping global corporations build, scale and operate mission critical infrastructure as well as helping communications service providers build high-margin offers.

Mark Weiner, CMO of Versa Networks
Just like server and storage virtualization has dramatically improved the cost and agility of data center resources, NFV is bringing the same value proposition to carriers and their managed service offerings. We are aligned with EMC to bring the benefits of NFV innovation to provider customers globally.
