Virtual B-RAS

B-RASs or Service Edge Routers perform a wide variety of network functions from subscriber management to routing, policy enforcement, content filtering and IP address management.

Huge growth in Internet video traffic and number of connected devices with Triple Play capabilities, pose a challenge to broadband service providers to continuously upgrade capacity and improve subscriber, session and application level intelligence at the network edge.

Virtualization of B-RAS functions offers high-level of flexibility, scalability and investment protection to broadband service providers. B-RASs running as virtual appliances optimized to standard x86 blades using Intel® DPDK allows Telcos to deploy products that can support on-demand scalability, and flexibility to enable dynamic QoS and security policy enforcement at a lower cost (TCO).
