The vendor announced a virtualized network function (VNF) that works on Ciena’s platform. FatPipe SD-WAN Multi-Function VNF will operate on Ciena’s 3906 platform, which provides gigabit Ethernet connectivity.
“Service providers are seeking strong, long-term collaborators and we are seeing a flight to quality,” FatPipe CTO and president Sanch Datta said. “The maturity of FatPipe’s SD-WAN solutions and ease of implementation plus automation of services and resource management with Ciena’s uCPE are decisive factors for our customer’s NFV success.”
FatPipe can provide SD-WAN connectivity, WAN optimization, advanced firewall and unified threat management as a result of the integration.
The company said enterprise customers are welcoming conversations with service providers about uCPE deployment, particularly as it pertains to managed SD-WAN services.
