Bare Metal – as a Network Appliance
Our SD-Edge Platform is a cloud-native, software-defined edge capable of delivering network functions through software including BNG, PE Routing, (T)WAG, 5G AGF, SASE and CGNAT. The SD-Edge is transforming carrier networks with speed, flexibility, agility and elastic scalability. Being software-based and running on commercial off the shelf servers (COTS) gives our platform the ultimately flexibility in deployment options.
One of those deployment options is to run on a bare metal server without virtualization. This behaves much like a network switch or appliance and is a good solution for fixed carriers that are not yet ready to support a virtualized or cloud-native environment like the mobile operators.
