Casa Systems today announced that LG U+ selected its virtualized Home eNodeB Gateway solution to help the South Korean operator modernize its network infrastructure and unlock new services and revenue streams as part of its broader network and service strategy. Casa Systems worked with distribution partner, E-Tech System, a leading provider of IT infrastructure and Mobile solutions and services in South Korea.
With nearly 20 million subscribers on wired and wireless services, LG U+ is one of the largest mobile operators in South Korea with a clear focus on differentiating through modern network infrastructure and advanced services. Featuring operational simplicity and the ability to quickly add new node deployment, Casa Systems’ virtualized HeNB-GW and SeGW solution will enable LG U+ to simplify its network, improve the 4G service coverage and service quality, and more easily capitalize on the growing market opportunity.
“We believe that the next generation of network services will be transformational for small and medium businesses and enterprise customers through new reach, performance, and capabilities. LG U+ will keep investment into small cells teaming up with Casa Systems and E-Tech System. The virtualized solution of Casa’s HeNB-GW and SeGW has the advantage of providing operational agility by requiring less space and power,” said Jonghyuk Lee, Access Team Leader at LG U+.
Based in South Korea, E-Tech System provides optimized IT solutions and professional technical services designed to improve the competitiveness and value of customers’ businesses. The company has expertise with a wide range of network hardware and software vendors and recognized that Casa Systems’ innovative software design addressed both the service flexibility and network operational requirements of LG U+. Casa Systems and E-Tech System are working on new opportunities to serve operators in the region and expect the LG U+ deployment to be the first of many engagements.
“LG U+ is at the forefront of deploying 4G and 5G mobile services, so we are excited to support their strategy with our network expertise and professional services,” said Mr. Shin Ho-Sik, Head of Network Service Provider ARM at E-Tech System. “Since so many of the solutions on the market are still tied to legacy chassis-based architectures and network designs, this collaboration with LG U+ proves Casa Systems’ virtualized HeNB-GW solutions to the market - an important milestone for Casa Systems and E-Tech System. Casa Systems has a robust portfolio of virtualized, cloud-native solutions for mobile core and RAN services. We see tremendous opportunity for operators in our markets to leverage Casa Systems’ solutions and deliver new advanced services and solutions to their customers.”
With Casa Systems’ virtualized HeNB-GW, LG U+ will handle the aggregation of the control and user plane traffic between large clusters of small cells and the core network while the SeGW provides secure connectivity with full visibility into performance and flexible, multi-vendor support.
"As LG U+ looked to scale the reach, performance and security of its corporate services, it recognized the value of Casa Systems’ fully virtualized HeNB GW and SeGW solution featuring unmatched performance from a small footprint, enabling them to cost-effectively scale services,” said Gibson Ang, Vice President of Technology at Casa Systems. “E-Tech System is a leader in the industry with a long history of delivering innovative software-based solutions and services to its customers. We look forward to working with E-Tech System on this and opening new doors for other deployments in Korea that would benefit from our 4G/5G cloud-native solutions.”

Lookout, Inc., the endpoint-to-cloud security company, today announced the integration of the Lookout Cloud Security Platform with VMware SD-WAN™. The Lookout platform with VMware SD-WAN provides customers with a best-of-breed secure access service edge (SASE) solution that delivers optimized network connectivity and data protection from any device and any location.
The increase in remote work and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies has amplified the need for organizations to protect any user, any device, from any location. This transformation has forced an evolution of how network and security services are delivered, ensuring the most direct and secure access to cloud applications. It no longer makes sense to backhaul traffic across expensive networks to a centralized data center for security enforcement. A SASE solution transforms legacy security into a set of cloud-delivered, converged network and security services that are available when and where they are needed.
The Lookout Cloud Security Platform provides customers with more secure and reliable access to cloud applications from any device and location. VMware SD-WAN ensures reliable, efficient, and optimal access paths to these applications from any location under varying network conditions. The integrated Lookout and VMware solution, which combines cloud security and cloud network connectivity, provides customers with improved network performance, centralized management of security policies and enhanced visibility and monitoring of all end-user activity between branch offices. Enterprises gain full cloud and data security across internet, SaaS, and private applications for any user and branch office regardless of location.
"Lookout and VMware are enabling customers to implement a SASE architecture that delivers zero trust outcomes that uniquely address the evolving business needs faced by cloud-first enterprises today," said Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst, ZK Research. "By integrating the Lookout Cloud Security Platform with VMware SD-WAN, they're providing customers with a more reliable and efficient way to secure remote access to data and applications, simplify management of branch office connectivity and have enhanced visibility of all end user activity. This new partnership will help enterprises protect their data and optimize their network performance."
"VMware and Lookout are collaborating to enable users to connect to their cloud applications in an optimal and more secure manner," said Sashi Annaluru, head of SASE Engineering, VMware. "The integration of VMware SD-WAN and Lookout Cloud Security Platform will give customers the choice and flexibility to transform their networking and security infrastructure and accelerate SASE adoption. Together, our solution will help customers with reliable and efficient connectivity to stay productive while protecting their infrastructure and data."
"Protecting data in the new norm of a hybrid workforce is challenging. Our partnership with VMware provides our joint customers with an architecture based on SASE, and that is unique and focused on protecting our customer's data along with delivering an industry leading solution to optimize network connectivity," said Sundaram Lakshmanan, chief technology officer, Lookout. "With the Lookout Cloud Security Platform and VMware SD-WAN, customers will experience reliable, efficient, and secure access to all applications, and more importantly protect the data stored in these applications when accessed from any location and any device."
Lookout, Inc. is the endpoint-to-cloud security company purpose-built for the intersection of enterprise and personal data. We safeguard data across devices, apps, networks and clouds through our unified, cloud-native security platform — a solution that's as fluid and flexible as the modern digital world.
