With SD-WAN gaining traction as one of the leading use cases for network virtualization, the joint solution will help communications service providers (CSPs) and managed services providers (MSPs) simplify the delivery of innovative value-added services to their customers.
The partnership enables RAD to bundle and sell Versa Cloud IP Platform with RAD’s open operating system (vCPE-OS), uCPE (ETX-2v white boxes, ETX-2i Whitebox+) and pluggable PNFs. The comprehensive vCPE Toolbox addresses the service assurance, integration and operational challenges of service providers, with a carrier-class white-box solution.
“We’re very happy to add Versa Networks’ market leading SD-WAN software to our arsenal,” noted Ilan Tevet, vice president of marketing and business development at RAD. “Our service provider customers stand to gain much value from this SD-WAN functionality running on top of RAD’s carrier class vCPE-OS operating system, alongside any additional best-of-breed VNFs required by them. Customers can choose to implement the SD-WAN virtualized network function (VNF) over any available infrastructure, using any available hardware, including our ETX-2v white box or the ETX-2i Whitebox+, according to their needs.”
