vbng (VIRTUAL BROADBAND NETWORK GATEWAY)
netElastic Virtual BNG (vBNG) is designed to deliver unmatched performance and scalability on white box servers. netElastic’s highly optimized data plane and patented packet processing techniques maximize hardware performance, and decoupling of the control plane and data plane allows for flexible capacity expansion without restrictions from either plane.
Whether service providers are deploying a new rural network or upgrading a large-scale metro POP, vBNG provides the deployment flexibility to deliver new services faster. vBNG can be deployed for very small subscriber bases up to millions of subscribers.
netElastic offers a comprehensive web-based BNG Manager that provides operational visibility, management, and control. BNG Manager monitors all interfaces, routes, peak and active subscribers, and overall system health.
In addition to the web-based BNG Manager, netElastic vBNG supports management, configuration and monitoring through CLI, NetConf APIs, and SNMP. vBNG also supports RADIUS and RADIUS COA for authentication, authorization, and accounting.
netElastic vBNG supports a wide range of protocols, including common Service Router access features. Supported access methods include PPPoE, IPoE, and L2TP with subscriber traffic policing and shaping per RADIUS specified rate plans. VxLANs are supported across interfaces, and routing protocols include OSPF, BGP, and IS-IS.
