Optimizing the usage model when deploying multiple VNF’s with SD-WAN can create challenges. Allocating compute resources on a “per usage” basis or perhaps session base has multiple advantages. Network conditions can vary in different locations and to support a “zero touch” deployment model, multiple networking paths with fall back options are needed form MPLS, LTE to WiFi or even traditional ATM in a legacy environment. Lanner showcase the deployment scenario using uCPE platforms and interfaces to ease the rollout of SD-WAN services.
