Lanner and ADVA Deliver Turnkey Offering for Intel Select Solutions for uCPE

Lanner Electronics and ADVA announced that Lanner’s NCA-4025 is now verified as an Intel Select Solution for uCPE with ADVA Ensemble Connector, giving communication service providers (CSPs) and enterprises a route to virtualization at the network edge.

ADVA’s Ensemble Connector is available preinstalled on a variety of Lanner’s network appliances, so customers can select from a range of workload-optimized solutions that deliver the benefits of network functions virtualization (NFV). Lanner’s NCA-4025 and ADVA’s Ensemble Connector will power uCPE deployments with advanced encryption performance, secure SD-WAN services and robust network protection for operators rolling out uCPE at scale.

“The new plug-and-play offering delivers the highest levels of performance while running multiple virtual network functions. It reduces the effort and complexity of testing and validation and accelerates time-to-market for new services,” said Mike Heffner, GM of Edge Cloud at ADVA.

The partnership offers businesses and CSPs a solution that can meet the performance needs of demanding uCPE applications. It delivers improved networking through the Ensemble Connector operating system and virtual network function hosting environment. This features advanced applications at layers two and three, including LTE access and Carrier Ethernet 2.0 functionality, as well as zero-touch provisioning. The uCPE offering also enables access to the Ensemble Harmony Ecosystem, the industry’s largest set of onboarded virtualized applications and supported servers.

The NCA-4025 also "accelerates time-to-market for SD-WAN, SD-Security and other NFV applications,” said Sven Freudenfeld, CTO of the Lanner Telecom Business Unit.
