Ensemble Connector is a high-performance Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) platform for hosting multi-vendor VNFs at the customer premises, in the gateway between network clouds, and in the data center. It also provides a robust network Operating System (OS) that eliminates the performance bottlenecks of traditional virtual switches, such as OVS. It operates on any white box as well as on ADVA’s high-performance FSP 150 ProVM edge compute nodes.
Ensemble Connector provides the industry’s high performance NFVI platform that has been proven to outperform even the latest DPDK version of OVS. Those advantages can be gained with any white box switch as well as with the FSP 150 ProVM that combines an open server with additional hardware acceleration capabilities.
