NETWORK FUNCTIONS VIRTUALIZATION
Communications service providers expect network functions virtualization (NFV) solutions to drive efficiencies, improve service agility and fundamentally change the way they do business. By consolidating networking functions onto virtualized, cloud-based offerings, providers can reduce proprietary hardware dependencies, contain CAPEX and OPEX, and increase service velocity. GENBAND’s network functions virtualization solution fully supports the key elasticity, scalability, orchestration and automation tenets for cloud and virtualized environments as specified by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).
VIRTUAL NETWORK FUNCTIONS
GENBAND’s differentiated Virtual Network Functions (VNF) portfolio includes fully virtualized, high-performance communications signaling, control and media management solutions including Session Border Controller, Media Interworking & Transcoding, Applications Server, Intelligent Messaging and Media Control solutions. An intelligent VNF Management framework, leveraging GENBAND’s VNF Manager (VFM) and open APIs, enables seamless interworking with different orchestration and cloud virtualization infrastructure components.
A new virtualized software-only Element Management System (EMS), GENVIEW, provides centralized management and configuration for the GENBAND VNF portfolio. For network performance, service monitoring and real-time troubleshooting, the new GENVIEW Analytics platform uses Big Data analytics engines and enhanced interactive visualization dashboards to provide in-depth network analysis and reporting
GENBAND is working closely with leading industry ecosystems including Intel Network Builders, WindRiver Titanium Cloud, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) OpenNFV, Red Hat Connect and Canonical VIP (VNF Interoperability Program) to deliver tightly integrated and differentiated end-to-end NFV solutions.
