Dell Technologies recently launched its Dell EMC VEP1405 series, a solution that connects the enterprise to the edge via universal Customer Premise Equipment (uCPE), uniting branch locations to the cloud and complementing its larger VEP4600 predecessor. As these next-generation technologies develop, our customers are readily moving towards modernizing their traditional IT infrastructure, right from the data center, all the way out to the network edge for enabling innovation, controlling costs, reducing complexity and providing scalability.
The all new Dell EMC VEP1405 series is a part of the Dell EMC Virtual Edge Platform (VEP) family that expands the edge service delivery options and helps customers modernize network operations via universal Customer Premise Equipment (uCPE). As a uCPE device, both service providers and enterprises can future-proof network operations and save on capital expenditures by shifting numerous, dedicated proprietary physical appliances to this single platform to host various virtual network functions (VNFs) such as software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN), firewall, deep-packet inspection and routing.
“In order to adapt to the rapidly changing dynamics of the IT landscape and to remain competitive, customers across the verticals have recognized the central role that the networking infrastructure plays within their IT transformation, said Manish Gupta, Sr. Director and General Manager, Infrastructure Solutions Group, Dell Technologies India. With our all-new Dell EMC VEP1405 series, we committed to help our customers adopt the software-defined networking at the Edge while controlling their costs and enhancing their productivity. Dell EMC VEP1405 is an ideal solution for organizations and service providers who are looking to modernize operations for connecting branch locations to the WAN, reduce complexity and foster business impact.”
The compact fixed form-factor of the VEP1405 uses Intel® Atom® C-3000 x86-based processor – a purpose-built networking processor supporting Intel® Quick Assist Technology and Intel® Data Plane Development Kit to accelerate encryption and packet processing respectively – that is intended for value, lower power consumption and multiple core options.
Additional highlights of VEP1405 include:
·Validation for ADVA Ensemble software which provides a choice from among 50+ virtual network functions for operational flexibility.
·Additional mobile connection capabilities offered with Wi-Fi for areas with power but without hard-wired connections.
Consistent VNF behavior and customer experience between the VEP1405 and VEP4600, aiding faster time to revenue and reduced deployment risks.
