Fremont, USA, September 21, 2018 — Lanner Electronics (TAIEX 6245) the global leading supplier in network communication platforms, announced today its strategic partnership with ProphetStor Data Services Inc., an Intelligent Data Platform leader, to co-develop an AI (Artificial Intelligence) – based Predictive Maintenance Service for vCPE/uCPE devices. The joint solution offers hardware failure prediction and resource monitoring capabilities enabled by AI technologies, aiming at improving SD-WAN management and maintenance efficiency for ComSPs (communication service provider).
The vCPE/uCPE Predictive Maintenance Service engine by Lanner and ProphetStor is aimed to deliver higher standard of QoS (Quality of Service) in SD-WAN deployments. The new solution allows remote management of uCPE/vCPE through one single dashboard, where IT staff is able to manage and monitor the hardware status and lifespan of key components of deployed devices. By integrating ProphetStor AI-driven Data Services technology in Lanner vCPE/uCPE, SD-WAN service providers can not only enable remote management and visibility of the distributed devices status, including CPU, memory, storage disks, but also analyze device system logs and hardware anomalies to prevent potential failure and ensure service availability..
“To accelerate the SD-WAN time-to-market, Lanner is committed to provide the most comprehensive white-box vCPE/uCPE to achieve zero-touch deployment”, said Terrence Chou, General Manager of Lanner USA. “With these integrated solutions, our customers can take proactive actions that addresses problems caused by potential disk failure, reducing hardware maintenance efforts and assuring SD-WAN serviceability.”
To further strengthen SD-WAN manageability and security, Lanner also offers comprehensive value-added software for its vCPE/uCPE white-box servers, including firmware BIOS Secure Boot, Boot Guard, TPM 2.0, IPMI/BMC, DPDK and cryptographic acceleration technologies to embrace high degree of flexibility for WAN load-balancing, optimization and visibility.
