The carrier network is undergoing the biggest transformation since the beginning of the Internet. Video, mobile, and cloud usage is driving huge growth in traffic and overwhelming the current networks. The ability to introduce new services quickly and to respond to constantly changing traffic patterns and location-based demographics is the key to success and growth for communications service providers (CSPs) and providers of telecom equipment.
In order to be successful in this telecom transformation, CSPs and equipment providers must find new ways to design and build network architectures that can improve agility and reduce operating costs. Many CSPs are looking to apply successful IT technologies such as commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and the mass virtualization and cloud deployment of applications to the carrier network. This approach has led to the creation of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), which defines specifications for the virtualization and management of services deployed as software in virtual machines (VMs), rather than tied to physical, proprietary hardware.
This demo features Wind River’s Titanium Server, a carrier grade software solution designed for NFV deployments that demand ultra-reliability and real-time performance. Deployed on an HP ProLiant server running Brocade Vyatta vRouter as a VNF, the demo shows a proof of concept developed by Wind River, Brocade, and HP that enables: VNF scaling with traffic, VNF live migration, Platform link protection, and other network use cases. This is a great example of the benefits of the Titanium Cloud partner ecosystem.
- Comprehensive NFV software platform
- 99.9999% network uptime…guaranteed
- Service agility through pre-validated VNFs
- Direct path to realized OPEX savings
