Excitel Broadband Replaces MikroTik BNG Routers with 6WIND Virtual Routers

Today 6WIND announced that Excitel Broadband, an ISP providing ultra-fast broadband services in India, successfully deployed 6WIND vRouters for 200,000 users. 6WIND’s vRouters are deployed in Excitel’s network as Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) solutions through its integrator partner Extreme Broadband Services. For this deployment, 6WIND’s vRouters replaced the MikroTik routers that lacked the scalable BNG performance required for Excitel’s growing business. As a result, 6WIND’s vRouters support 3X users and 4x throughput on the same x86 server platform without any additional hardware investments.
