FatPipe nods to converged infrastructure with VNF, SD-WAN offering
FatPipe Networks, a provider of router clustering products for WAN optimization, recently debuted a new SD-WAN product, which the company said makes it easier to deploy virtual network functions (VNFs).
SD-WAN and network functions virtualization (NFV) platforms used to deploy VNFs are beginning to converge, according to FatPipe. The purpose of the multi-purpose VFN solution is to accelerate this process by combining SD-WAN functionality with routing, firewall, security, Deep Packet Inspection (DIP), among others. It enables companies to add and launch additional VNFs without the complexities typically anchored to multi-vendor deployments, said the company.
