In a move to further simplify customer site deployments, Verizon has teamed up with Lanner Electronics, a global leader in Whitebox Solutions for network communication, security, and NFV/SDN platforms to launch its next-generation enhanced Universal Customer Premises Equipment program. Verizon’s enhanced uCPE program will run on Lanner’s hardware platform and integrate seamlessly with existing Virtual Network Service applications on the Verizon global network.

Powered by Intel’s x86 Atom family processors and designed for small and medium deployments, the modular design of these platforms aggregates LTE and WiFi connectivity to meet “Low Touch” provisioning and future-proof scalability to significantly reduce OPEX while improving business competitiveness for SD WAN deployments.

Verizon's uCPE eliminates the need for enterprises to invest in separate hardware appliances for critical VNFs such as software-defined WAN (SD WAN), security, routing, WAN optimization, or any other network function that can be virtualized. The underlying architecture for both the Hosted Network Services and uCPE deployment models that support VNS is built on Open Source standard components, including OpenStack, meaning that the development times for adding new features, services and technology partners can be radically shortened.

Mr Jason Kett, SDN Product Manager at Verizon said that “Organizations are embracing cloud and mobile first strategies that require more complex networking environments. To address this, we have enhanced our product through tighter integration with the hardware and software ecosystems to ensure we meet and exceed our customers’ expectations. This Whitebox Solution increases operational management efficiency for hardware maintenance and facilitates easier deployment of multiple Virtual Network Function (VNF) vendors on a single open platform.”
