The Verizon-certified Lanner and 128 Technology joint solution is ready to operate on a wireless network to provide customers with SD-WAN connectivity with 128 Technology’s Session Smart Router™ through the Verizon 4G Network Infrastructure.
Fremont CA, USA, September 22th, 2020. Lanner Electronics, the leading Whitebox Solutions™ provider, today announces that it has certified NCA-1515/L-1515 with 128 Technology’s Session Smart Router™ on Verizon Wireless, one of the world’s largest and most advanced networks. Certification to Verizon's Open Development Device Initiative (ODI) enables a product to connect to the Verizon Wireless network. Lanner has previously obtained Verizon ODI certification on the NCA-1515/L-1515 generic x86 platform and since worked closely with Verizon to enhance the certification benefits by adding sub-certifications, including application software. This extra certification ensures seamless operation of the entire white box solution on Verizon’s network. Lanner hosts this program and performs the testing with their eco-system partners like 128 Technology.
Lanner and 128 Technology collaborated closely to deliver the benefits of mobile connectivity in edge cloud applications, a requirement for Next-Generation 5G communications. The high-performance 128 Technology and Lanner joint solution with LTE access provides scalability and flexibility in SDN and NFV deployments with a robust and stable wireless connection.
Lanner Whitebox Solutions™ NCA-1515/ L-1515 is powered by Intel® Atom® C3000 Series 2-16 Cores CPU, up to 64 GB RAM, 4~6 GbE, 2x SFP, and Intel QAT supported on all ports. It hosts up to 3 wireless modules via 6 antennas for enhanced LTE/Wi-Fi connectivity. Combined with 128 Technology’s Session Smart Router™, it is an open virtualized platform with tunnel-free SD-WAN, firewall, and WAN optimization products. It provides scalability by removing resource hungry tunnels using session-based networking. The combined solution provides LTE access and ensures reliable mobile connectivity at the edge.
“The Whitebox Solutions™ strategy within Lanner provides certified, pre-validated, and pre-integrated white box appliances to the market to ease the deployment and rollout of SD-WAN and uCPE services in a multi-vendor orchestration and VNF environment," said Sven Freudenfeld, CTO Telecom Application Business Unit. “The ODI certified solution with 128 Technology’s Session Smart Router™ will accelerate the deployment of SD-WAN services and time to revenue for service providers” he added.
“The Lanner Whitebox Solutions™ 1515 platform allows 128 Technology to leverage a pre-validated and certified platform to operate seamlessly on the Verizon 4G and potentially 5G Network Infrastructure." says Andy Ory, CEO at 128 Technology. “Working with a strong partner like Lanner and providing pre-validated and certified SD-WAN solutions to our enterprise customers through the Verizon Wireless infrastructure will accelerate service deployments especially in the increase in demand during COVID 19” he added.
