RAD Demonstrates SD-WAN Functionality at BCE 20166/22/2016
In conjunction with Versa Networks, RAD demos a joint solution for SD-WAN implementation. The solution uses RAD's ETX-2i, a vCPE platform integrating a powerful IP and Carrier Ethernet NID/NTU with a field-pluggable x86 NFV module that runs Versa's FlexVNF for SD-WAN functionality. The demo implements SD-WAN over a simulated service provider footprint by deploying Versa's FlexVNF application, which is stored in the repository of the RADview D-NFV Orchestrator, on the ETX-2i sitting on the network edge. In addition to enabling hybrid WAN deployment over multiple networks, the solution features local Internet breakout and managed security functionality, as well as application-aware load balancing and traffic engineering with SLA assurance.
