Benu Networks Continues Innovation with Additional Patents Granted for Software Defined Networking and Virtual CPE

Benu Networks, a leading provider of innovative virtual network solutions that enable service providers to rapidly create and deliver next generation IP services, today announced the issuance by the United States’ Patent Office of two technology patents for creating easily scalable centrally-managed Wi-Fi using software defined networking (SDN); and a system and method of providing advanced services in a virtual CPE (vCPE) deployment. Both patents are based on SDN/NFV principles to empower service providers to achieve their goals, including reducing CAPEX/OPEX, accelerating the launch of high value services, and enhancing the quality of experience (QoE).

U.S. patent number 9,686,808, entitled “Centrally Managed Wi-Fi”, pertains to Wi-Fi aggregation using a flat Layer 2 architecture and enhanced fast mobility for Wi-Fi devices between the Wi-Fi radio nodes. U.S. patent number 9,585,186, entitled “System and Method of Providing Advanced Services in a Virtual CPE Deployment”, applies to providing a centralized cloud based Wi-Fi service. Both patents include claims based on the SDN approach of decoupling the control plane from the data plane to leverage cloud computing technology and to realize a cost effective, large-scale, cloud networking deployment. These newly granted patents extend Benu Networks’ robust intellectual property portfolio and when joined with various other awarded and pending patents, protect the unique attributes and advantages of the company’s Virtual Service Edge platform.

Benu Networks’ Virtual Service Edge (VSE) platform seamlessly integrates with service providers’ operations and business systems to facilitate a comprehensive network solution that is fully virtualized to enable security, scalability and service agility. The VSE solution enables rapid cloud-based service deployment, dynamic service control, and increased customer care responsiveness. The VSE dramatically improves service providers’ time-to-market with differentiated managed service offerings for Mobile Wi-Fi, Managed Business Networking and Managed Home Networking.

“These new patents demonstrate Benu Networks’ commitment to innovation, its focus on accelerating the deployment of SDN/NFV solutions, and its pledge to address the needs of the service provider market,” stated Mads Lillelund, CEO, Benu Networks. “Benu Networks will continue to build on its technology portfolio to consistently deliver exclusive technology advantages to its customers and partners.”
