As technology advances and businesses strive for greater agility, Tier-1 Service Providers are seeking innovative solutions to overcome the limitations of traditional hardware-based infrastructure. In their pursuit of low total cost of ownership, flexibility, and accelerated time to market, these service providers are turning to 6WIND’s Virtual Service Router (VSR) solutions, which bring a host of benefits for deploying Virtual Provider Edge (vPE) routers in AWS.
The Need for Agility and Scalability
In the era of centralized data centers, businesses often encounter challenges in deploying new services due to the time-consuming process of procuring and configuring hardware, such as routers, switches, and servers. Recognizing the need to overcome these limitations, many service providers are now looking to expand their networks into the cloud, specifically the AWS Cloud. With its extensive global footprint spanning 84 Availability Zones in 26 regions, AWS offers an ideal platform for deploying applications that can seamlessly meet end users’ demands.
Overcoming Network Limitations
Traditionally, service providers have relied on expensive dedicated circuits or IPSec connections to extend their networks to AWS. However, have realized the potential of an alternative approach. By extending their current MPLS network into AWS, these service providers enable their customers to access AWS resources directly from their private MPLS network. This eliminates the need for external connections or costly dedicated circuits, revolutionizing the way AWS applications and services are distributed across regions and improving end users’ experience by reducing latency and enhancing performance.
The Power of 6WIND vPE
At the heart of this network transformation lies 6WIND’s Virtual Provider Edge router, which offers a virtual instance capable of seamlessly integrating resources into the network. Deploying a vPE node enables service providers to add and remove network resources with ease, allowing for unparalleled flexibility and control over costs. With a simple click of a button, additional vPE nodes can be deployed to meet bandwidth requirements or support a new vPE node in a different region. This dynamic scalability ensures optimal resource utilization and empowers service providers to respond swiftly to changing demands.
Key Differentiators and Value Proposition
Choosing 6WIND’s vPE over traditional hardware-based solutions provides a range of compelling advantages for Tier-1 Service Providers. The primary drivers for adopting 6WIND’s vPE are as follows:
Lower Total Cost of Ownership
By leveraging the cost-effective nature of virtual instances in the cloud, 6WIND vPE eliminates the need for expensive hardware procurement, maintenance, and upgrades. The virtualized nature of the solution allows service providers to optimize resource utilization and significantly reduce operational expenses, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership.
The agility offered by 6WIND vPE is unmatched in comparison to traditional hardware-based alternatives. With the ability to rapidly deploy, scale, and decommission resources as required, service providers gain unparalleled flexibility in adapting to evolving network demands. This dynamic scalability ensures that resources are utilized efficiently, resulting in optimal performance and cost-effectiveness.
Enhanced Performance and Time-to-Market
The seamless integration of 6WIND vPE into the AWS Cloud enables service providers to extend their MPLS networks directly to AWS. By eliminating the need for external connections or dedicated circuits, latency is reduced, and performance is improved. This translates to a better end-user experience and accelerated time-to-market for new services and applications.
In an era where businesses are constantly seeking ways to enhance agility, reduce costs, and accelerate time-to-market, 6WIND vPE emerges as a game-changer for Tier-1 Service Providers. With its virtualized architecture, the solution empowers service providers to overcome the limitations of traditional hardware-based infrastructure, delivering lower total cost of ownership, unmatched flexibility, enhanced performance, and accelerated time-to-market. By deploying 6WIND vPE in AWS, these service providers unlock the true potential of their networks, paving the way for future growth and success.
