VAST Networks Selects Benu Networks Virtual Service Edge Platform

Benu Networks announced VAST Networks has purchased the Benu Virtual Service Edge (VSE) to support growth and enhanced service experience for their Wi-Fi network, which already includes over 2,200 hotspots in South Africa. VAST Networks will use this new virtual platform to provide customers, including International Services Providers and Local Businesses, with the opportunity to provide seamless Wi-Fi Services throughout South Africa. Customers will have a true managed wireless experience regardless of location.

XCellAir and Benu Networks Partner to Enable Operator Enterprise Managed Service

XCellAir announced its partnership with Benu Networks. The partnership will see XCellAir's XCellRAN(TM) Carrier Wi-Fi solution integrated with Benu's Virtual Service Edge (VSE), enabling operators to deliver managed business services across Small Office Home Office (SoHo), Small Medium Business (SMB) and Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) markets. Operators have the opportunity to leverage their relationship with existing business customers, going beyond basic connectivity to deliver a fully managed service that has Wi-Fi at its core. But the market is predominantly serviced by over-the-top (OTT) players who are selling directly to business owners. The joint solution from XCellAir and Benu will bring to market an enhanced Wi-Fi user experience that takes into account unique operator needs. For small businesses that do not have the same expertise as established players, the partnership will provide operators with reliable Wi-Fi that enables them to deliver cost-effective services. XCellAir's XCellRAN solution provides operators scalable Wi-Fi assurance through automated provisioning of Wi-Fi access points, automated radio optimization delivering reliable performance, and automatic healing of the network without intervention by engineers. Once integrated with Benu's VSE, this will provide a comprehensive, fully virtualized and simplified managed Wi-Fi solution that is vendor agnostic. Furthermore, operators that choose to work with the joint solution will also have the ability to expand into other Wi-Fi areas, including homespots, hotspots and metro area deployments.
