Benu Networks, a provider of virtual network solutions that enable service providers to create and deliver IP services, said its Virtual Service Edge (VSE)  platform is the foundation of the DS-Lite solution that transitions to IPv6 without impacting existing subscribers’ use of IPv4 Internet or applications.

In addition, Liberty Global and Benu Networks partnered with ARRIS International for architectural design expertise, integration, and deployment of the Benu Networks’ DS-Lite solution by the ARRIS Global Services team.

“Liberty Global selected Benu Networks’ DS-Lite solution for its technical, operational, and commercial fit.  Even more compelling was the solution’s ability to support the creation of different network service slices on the same platform,” said Andrew Grotzke, Vice President of Core Networks, Strategy and Engineering, Liberty Global.

“ARRIS collaborates with Liberty Global across the operator’s global operations giving us the insights and expertise to seamlessly integrate Benu Networks’ DS-Lite solution,” said Steve McCaffery, president of International Sales, ARRIS.

Mads Lillelund, CEO of Benu Networks, said, Virtual Service Edge (VSE) software platform supports the creation of different network service slices on the same, single platform. This empowers Liberty Global to utilize the same VSE platform used to address the seamless transition from IPv4 to IPv6.
