The rising adoption of SDN and NFV in telecommunication industry has driven the demands for consolidated and integrated hardware architectures for networking purposes, including servers, switches and routers. The software approaches are favored by telecommunication sectors as SDN and NFV help reduce implementations of proprietary hardware equipments. By leveraging the benefits of SDN and NFV, carriers are gaining lower TCO, higher efficiencies and increased flexibility in network managements.
As world-leader for network security appliances, Lanner provides custom-made security gateways designed to continuously protect the IT/OT convergence in the mission-critical infrastructures, such as smart factory, power grids, and oil and gas facilities. Our security gateways range from rugged industrial UTMs installed in the OT network for SCADA/ICS security, to 1U/2U next-gen firewalls applicable for IT security in the industrial DMZ and enterprise data centers.
The concept of NFV is the total integration of essential hardware and software components to build the environment for VNF deployment. NFV requires high-volume, carrier-grade, and open-architecture Intel x86-based hardware systems for VNF software applications so that telecom service providers can obtain operation agility, OPEX efficiency and scale-on-demand network services.
