Versa Showcases Two SD-WAN Solutions at MEF19 PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 21 November 2019 07:58


Versa Networks – innovator of the Secure Cloud IP platform – is participating in two Proof of Concept (PoC) demonstrations as a sponsor of the sixth annual MEF 3.0 PoC Showcase. Versa strongly believes in the role of standard organizations in the industry and hence it is actively participating in MEF19, held from 18-22 November at the JW Marriott LA LIVE in Los Angeles. Versa is a finalist for the MEF19 enterprise SD-WAN Technology Solutions award.

The Showcase brings together 46 of the world's leading service and technology providers to present ground-breaking demonstrations of SD-WAN, inter-provider and intra-provider service automation with LSO APIs, AI/ML, security, intent-based networking, Blockchain, Carrier Ethernet, satellite services, 5G, network slicing, IoT, private cloud, service assurance, and more.

In the first of its two PoC collaborations, Versa is partnering with NTT Communications, Netcracker and Adva. They will showcase the ease with which multi-vendor SD-WAN services can be orchestrated

Powered by a unified marketplace, self-service portal and NFV-based uCPE platform, the NTT PoC will demonstrate that MEF 70 compliant SD-WAN services from different vendors can be selected independently of the CPE hardware. They will also showcase that these services can be seamlessly deployed with little-to-no intervention from the service provider or end-user. Through this new "digital user experience," SD-WAN services are orchestrated, activated, managed using zero touch provisioning and end-to-end service automation in alignment with MEF's LSO framework.

In its second PoC, partners will be demonstrating the way in which Versa SD-WAN services can be supported by API automation certification. Partnering with CenturyLink and Spirent, Versa will demonstrate automated activation of MEF SD-WAN services with integrated service testing based on the Spirent SD-WAN test certification suite".

"This has been an extraordinary year of innovation as industry players strive toward a common goal of accelerating adoption of dynamic and assured services across automated, virtualized, and interconnected networks," said Pascal Menezes, CTO, MEF.

In a year full of notable successes, Versa Networks, innovator of the Secure Cloud IP software platform, has hit the milestone of 200,000 software licenses sold in the aggregate; deployed its 1,000th enterprise customer; and reached the target of 100 total Service Provider partners. It has also won several industry awards and generated significant market momentum with strategic partnerships ranging from Riverbed to Azure to AWS.

"Versa Networks believes that working with standards bodies like the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) and Open Networking User Group (ONUG) not only improve the industry but also create better solutions for customers," said Kumar Mehta, co-founder and CDO, Versa Networks. "Versa Networks has immense understanding of the needs, challenges and vision that the SD-WAN community have, which helps us to deliver innovative products while conforming to open standards that the service provider or consumer can trust."
