Anyone who wants to take advantage of the opportunities of digitalisation must design their network to be as flexible as possible. After all, complex requirements for speed and bandwidth, the integration of the cloud and the integration of new IT and OT devices can no longer be met by rigid MPLS topologies alone. Network virtualisation opens new doors: towards freedom of design and cost savings.
- Without on-site deployment: automated connection of new locations (zero-touch provisioning).
- Save time and WAN costs by using different connection technologies (MPLS, Carrier Ethernet, Internet, LTE, 5G etc.)
- more dynamics through faster network adaptations and virtualised network functions
- centrally controlled = uniform security level
- Reduction of WAN costs
- Avoid box stacking through free choice of VNF providers
- Vendor independence through free choice of uCPE and white label service, easy implementation and scaling
- Standardised protocols in the Linux/OpenStack and SDN environment
As a rule, a company network still looks like this today: The branch offices in the WAN are connected to the central data centre via MPLS. Often, access to the internet is also provided via the secured lines. With each new endpoint, MPLS costs increase or transmission bottlenecks occur. And: the rigid network design blocks new requirements. Whether it's the use of robots in production, augmented reality, 5G campus solutions or smart cities - more and more end devices and sensors at the edge of the networks are causing data growth to skyrocket.
New equipment is constantly being added to the already extensive hardware stock, and the service for it is becoming extremely complex. New services can only be introduced slowly, and in many locations there is sometimes hardly any space left for even more equipment.
Through virtualisation, networks can now react much more dynamically to requirements. And with the possibility of rolling out network functions to the WAN edge, completely new use cases become feasible. We combine classic MPLS-based networks with low-cost broadband connections and thus provide you with considerable cost savings: away from legacy and towards open network structures. Let our network specialists develop a customised solution for you that will best equip your company for the challenges of digitalisation.
We provide you with freely selectable uCPEs (universal Customer Premises Equipment) - small compact devices - which are equipped with an edge cloud operating system. One or more virtual network functions offered by third-party providers in the form of VNF software (Virtualized Network Functions) can be easily and quickly installed on them.
For a consistently high level of security, we play Next-Generation-Firewalls from a central location on the CPE's in your branches and always keep them up to date from our IT Network Center (IT NC). In this way, you can connect your locations directly and more cost-effectively to the Internet (local Internet breakout).
By using VNF software (Virtualized Network Functions), for example for encryption, turbo routers, firewalls, WAN optimisation or 5G RAN controllers (Radio Access Network), we open up new fields of application in the IT and OT sectors. For example, IPv6 IoT infrastructures can be set up with border routers, e.g. for smart cities, in order to connect networks for sensors in large numbers cost-effectively, quickly and flexibly.
