Bell launched its new Virtual Network Services (VNS) platform Oct. 18, which the company says will give business and enterprise customers “on demand network functions,” such as security and routing, by deploying software so clients can get rid of chunky hardware that performs similar functions. The announcement was made during the Cisco Connect event in Toronto, where the telecom provider announced the first virtual network function on the VNS platform will be a managed software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) that will be powered by Cisco Viptela.
