Virtual Broadband Network Gateway (vBNG)
Last Updated: June 04, 2020
netElastic’s vBNG is designed to deliver unmatched performance and scalability with a highly optimized data plane and patented packet processing techniques. vBNG separates the control and data planes so each can be scaled independently based on network and end-user demand. With this massively scalable network architecture, carriers can handle network traffic in the terabits. Carriers can deploy vBNG in standard x86 based servers or physical NPU-based white box switches. While x86 servers provide the highest hardware flexibility (due to the highly abstracted and widely available DPDK component), physical NPUs are hardware optimized devices that provide high levels of performance. The above approach enables vBNG to provide carriers with maximum deployment flexibility to deliver new services faster, whether it’s deploying a new rural network or upgrading a large-scale metro POP.
- Massive scalability
Decoupling of the control plane and data plane allows for flexible capacity expansion without restrictions from either plane.
- High performance
vBNG delivers up to 160 Gbps throughput in 2RU.
- Maximum deployment flexibility
vBNG provides carriers the deployment flexibility to deliver new services faster, whether they’re deploying a new rural network or upgrading a large-scale metro PoP.
- Accelerate service innovation
netElastic vBNG enables carriers to quickly create and deploy innovative new services to meet customers’ rapidly changing needs.
