The Verizon-certified Lanner-ADVA joint solution is ready to operate on a wireless network and provide their customers access to a wide variety of uCPE use cases.
Fremont CA, USA, July 29th, 2020. Lanner Electronics, the leading Whitebox Solutions™ provider, today announces that it has certified L-1515 with ADVA Ensemble Connector 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 L-1515 generic x86 platform. Lanner has 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 ADVA.
Lanner and ADVA collaborated closely to deliver the benefits of mobile connectivity in edge cloud applications, which becomes necessary for next-gen 5G communications. The high-performance ADVA-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™ 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 ADVA Ensemble Connector OS, it is an open virtualized platform for hosting multi-vendor VNFs, including SD-WAN, firewall, and WAN optimization products. The 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. “Verizon ODI and PTCRB are the most requested certified platforms, and with pre-certified solutions, deployment and the path to revenue is shortened for uCPE and SD-WAN use cases” he added. According to Michael Heffner, Vice President of PLM for ADVA Edge Cloud business unit, “The Lanner Whitebox Solutions™ 1515 platform delivers the broadest range of industry-leading compute and networking options to support the critical uCPE use cases we are delivering to our customers. Combined with our Ensemble virtual edge cloud software platform, ADVA and Lanner are able to efficiently and cost-effectively deliver virtualized networking and security applications to the communication service providers and managed service providers on a global scale.” Platforms verified to meet the requirements of Verizon network, enterprise customers may reduce time to market and benefit from the platform, that is workload-optimized for performance, tested for stability, and ready for tomorrow’s deployments today in distributed networks of small and medium enterprises, branch offices as well as retail stores.
