Running on x86-based commodity hardware, netElastic vRouter delivers maximum flexibility and cost savings while delivering the performance needed for key network functions. Cost savings include much lower hardware costs (CapEx) and installations/truck rolls (OpEx). vRouter’s software-based approach and industry-leading scalability can help service providers save up to 2x in costs compared to hardware-based routers. vRouter also offers cost-effective “pay-as-you-grow” licensing options to avoid large upfront capital investments.
vRouter delivers from 1 Gbps up to 160 Gbps of throughput in 2RU, enabling service providers to easily scale services up and down based on business and customer requirements. Greater scalability with vRouter accelerates time to market for new services, leading to increased carrier revenue and customer satisfaction.
vRouter architecture features true control plane and data plane separation. This enables service providers to run multiple controls planes and data planes for market-leading flexibility and scalability. vRouter features include base IP Routing and MPLS switching, and these features can be easily upgraded to transform vRouter into a full-featured virtual Broadband Network Gateway (vBNG), SD-WAN/vCPE, or virtual Provider Edge (vPE) router.
