Founded in 2010, Benu Networks is transforming the Service Provider Network Edge through software with the deployment of its Software Defined Edge (SD-Edge) Platform. The SD-Edge is a cloud-native solution that can be configured to deliver critical network functions that service providers rely on to deliver services to consumers and business customers.
The growth in demand for bandwidth and broadband services by wireline and wireless subscribers continues unabated and market trends are driving requirements at the network edge to increase service delivery speed and decrease cost while increasing flexibility and scalability.
Benu Networks with its SD-Edge platform is leading the charge in transforming the Network Edge
The Benu Networks SD-Edge Platform virtualizes key network functions and enables service providers to seamlessly transition to a cloud-based, 5G ready network. Our platform sits at the carrier edge and delivers critical network functions and services including performing as a Broadband Network Gateway (BNG), Provider Edge Router (PE), Carrier Grade NAT Gateway (CGNAT), Wireless Access Gateway (WAG), Trusted Wireless Access Gateway (TWAG), 5G Access Gateway Function (5G AGF). Our SD-Edge can also provide network-based security through our SASE offering (Secure Access Service Edge) which can be delivered as a standalone gateway or integrated with other functions (such as part of a BNG).
