RAD Adds Whitebox Option to vCPE
MAHWAH, N.J. -- RAD has announced the addition of a new option to its flexible ETX-2i vCPE product line, a server-based whitebox virtual customer premises equipment that is license-upgradable for network functions such as routing, service demarcation and performance monitoring – a solution aptly branded Whitebox+.
“This scalable solution allows operators to spin up a myriad of virtual managed services, from security to routing, SD-WAN to IT services, and much more,” stated Ulik Broida, RAD’s vice president of marketing and business development. “Better still, using the same installation and management system, as needed, the operator can opt to introduce PNFs such as IP VPN, traffic classification and policing, SLA-based business services, and performance monitoring.”
The built-in capabilities of the Whitebox+ not only provide wire-speed networking performance, but also preserve CPU resources for instantiation of additional VNFs.
