ADTRAN Bluesocket Speeds The Adoption Of Multi-Tenant, Cloud-Based Services

Stocks in this article: ADTN

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of cloud connectivity, enterprise communications and virtual mobility solutions, today announced multi-tenancy capabilities integrated into the Bluesocket® virtual Wireless LAN (vWLAN®) solution, ADTRAN’s network virtualization solution for wireless LAN (WLAN). This initial release is targeted for managed service and solution providers who require the operational flexibility to support multiple customers within a single virtualized controller. With the ever-increasing demand for cloud-based wireless LAN services, vWLAN enhanced with multi-tenancy features delivers a greatly improved method to deploy and differentiate hosted WLAN offerings.

ADTRAN's vWLAN is a hypervisor-based WLAN that enables the delivery of powerful cloud services. Leveraging the benefits of network virtualization and a distributed data plane, vWLAN frees the WLAN from the local area network. No longer does the control and management of the WLAN have to be on the same LAN as the access points, instead, user control and device management resides in the cloud. Success in cloud-services depends on operational agility. vWLAN’s multi-tenancy capability, combined with network virtualization, gives managed service providers the ability to quickly create a hosted WLAN and respond to customer demands.

With typical hardware-based controller architecture, service providers looking to deliver hosted or managed cloud-based WLAN services face very expensive start-up costs and operational constraints. With conventional WLAN systems, guaranteeing true tenant isolation requires dedicated, isolated hardware which further increases the overall implementation cost and erodes profit margins. ADTRAN’s vWLAN offering solves these challenges by delivering a software-based control and management solution that can be sub-divided such that multiple tenants can securely occupy a single virtual instance.

“The challenge for service providers, including MSPs, today are how to cost-effectively scale their offerings when every customer must be treated the same in terms of access, priorities and service assurance,” said Mike Sapien, principal analyst at Ovum. “ADTRAN’s Bluesocket multi-tenant solution tackles this issue by enabling service providers to configure each customer on the virtual Wireless LAN independently of any others, whether this customer is in a shared campus environment, independent department by department separation or another geographic region.”
