Details

AudioCodes, a leading provider of converged voice solutions that enable enterprises and service providers to transition to all-IP voice networks, today announced the launch of the Mediant 800B virtual enterprise CPE (vE-CPE). The Mediant 800B vE-CPE combines a standard Intel x86 server with embedded Physical Network Functions (pNF) required for hosted business communications, including a business edge router, session border controller (SBC) and VoIP media gateway.

Virtualization of the enterprise CPE (vE-CPE) represents one of the most compelling use cases of Network Function Virtualization (NFV), as it provides a remotely manageable platform on which hosted service providers can easily deploy, modify or delete virtual network functions used in Wide Area Networks (WAN). With its embedded support for data routing, SBC and media gateway, the Mediant 800B vE-CPE enables hosted service providers to deliver these premium value-added services (VNFs) without impacting their hosted voice and UC services (UCaaS). The Mediant 800B’s router provides high performance data routing capabilities with support for a range of WAN interfaces (including 3G and LTE). The embedded SBC functionality ensures extensive VoIP interoperability, security and resiliency. The Mediant 800B vE-CPE is compatible with OpenStack and 3rd party NFV orchestrators and VNFs.

“The Mediant 800B vE-CPE is an important addition to our growing NFV solution portfolio,” commented Yehuda Herscovici, VP Product at AudioCodes. “With its combination of embedded pNFs and high performance x86 server, the Mediant 800B vE-CPE enables hosted service providers to consolidate several services on a single platform. Furthermore, providers benefit from reduced operational costs through remote deployments at customer sites.”
