flexiWAN, Telefónica Join Hands For Modular Open Source Networking


Israel-based open source SD-WAN vendor flexiWAN said it has teamed up with Telefónica to create value added SD-WAN based services through the flexiWAN open source and modular SD-WAN solution.

As part of the alliance, flexiWAN and Telefonica are working towards service differentiation, feature modularity with the ability to easily integrate 3rd party applications and tiered service cost structure.

Collaboration started in June 2019 and during 2020, the duo will be running PoCs to test flexiWAN performance and functionality on white-box CPEs. The PoCs aim to test flexiWAN technology for customer branches that need throughputs from 50 Mbps to 1 Gbps of encrypted traffic.

In addition to being open source, flexiWAN is said to be designed in a modular and open architecture.

In this architecture, the networking infrastructure is provided as the base layer with an application infrastructure layer on top, allowing to run networking applications developed by 3rd parties or flexiWAN in the router itself and in the management.
