Network Disaggregation at the Edge With the Open SD-Edge Platform
Date / Time: Wednesday, November 11, 2020, 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m. London
Many enterprises today depend on separate, dedicated boxes for WAN connectivity, firewalls and LAN connectivity. With IP Infusion's Open SD-Edge platform, enterprises can transform the way they manage their network infrastructure and benefit from best-of-breed network functions virtualization (NFV) and industry-standard software defined networking (SDN) hardware.
In this webinar, panelists will share their vision and collaboration experience in developing and deploying the Open SD-Edge solution for uCPE applications. Open SD-Edge is powered by DANOS-Vyatta edition (DVe), carrier-targeted NOS that AT&T has validated and broadly deployed across multiple white box use cases. This webinar will discuss how the network disaggregation ecosystem enables operators to optimize their networks for cloud connectivity, at both the branch and cloud edges of the network, and how it can deliver operational simple, agile, virtualized services at the optimum price-performance and lowest total cost of ownership.
