As service providers define the way network edge evolves to deliver new services for digital transformation, it becomes imperative that IP services and routing functions need to provide a better end-user experience. With the drastic expansion of small sites/branch offices, RAN disaggregation and network virtualization will be necessary. The compute resources will move closer to the edge to deliver low-latency services. Routing functions are used in applications ranging from uCPE to RAN sharing and network slicing to crosshaul.
ACL Digital’s vRouter framework is a router and network services platform in a virtual form factor intended for deployment in the cloud and virtual data centers. It’s a customizable framework that allows essential routing functions to be instantiated as Virtual Network Functions (VNFs). It is optimized to serve as a single-tenant or multitenant WAN gateway. vRouter framework enables enterprises to transparently extend their WANs into external provider-hosted clouds and cloud providers to offer their tenants enterprise-class networking services. Some of the features of ACL Digital’s cloud service router are:
- Rapid deployment and service orchestration
- Enterprise-wide network extension to the cloud
- Consolidation of network functions
Support both static and dynamic (OSPF, BGP, RIP) routing functions
Enables service providers to offer an end-to-end managed connectivity
Connects branch and remote sites directly to its cloud deployment
