ADTRAN Enables Cloud-based WLAN Service with Bluesocket


ADTRAN upgraded its Bluesocket virtual Wireless LAN (vWLAN) solution to give service providers and value-added resellers (VARs) the ability to deliver cloud-based Wi-Fi service offerings.  The Bluesocket solution can now support hundreds of customer WLANs, offering a cloud-based WLAN service without the expense of placing a hardware controller on the customer’s site.

ADTRAN’s software-based vWLAN solution utilizes virtualization and allows the controller to be based at the service provider’s network operations center (NOC) while the data sessions remain at the end-user’s LAN, thus avoiding the need to backhaul user traffic. With the control and management based at the NOC rather than tied to the end-user’s LAN, unprecedented levels of on-demand scale can be achieved.

"ADTRAN’s vWLAN solution is optimal for service providers since it offers software-based, virtualized control and management that is centrally located at their network operations center," stated Mads Lillelund, general manager of ADTRAN’s Bluesocket Business Group. "Even better, service providers have the flexibility to sell the vWLAN solution as part of a resale, managed or cloud service. vWLAN as a cloud-based service opens up new opportunities for service providers in a highly competitive market.”
