FSP 150 ProVM
Taking Network Functions Virtualization to the Edge
Network functions virtualization (NFV) presents communications service providers (CSPs) with the opportunity to achieve a long-held ambition – streamline operational costs while opening new revenue streams. With NFV at the edge, CSPs can do exactly this. What’s more, there’s little disruption. The network function remains, as it always has, at the edge. Our FSP 150 ProVM is an edge NFV product series that consolidates several customer premise appliances into one box. This box is at once a server capable of hosting applications and a demarcation device that can monitor applications and network activity.
The Right Mix of Hardware and Software
Hosting applications at the edge, as opposed to the data center, is key to keeping latency low and limiting backhaul costs. It’s also vital to have a good balance of virtual- and hardware-based functions. For example, functions that require a lot of processing power and stringent timing should be hardware based. Our FSP 150 ProVM offers CSPs the perfect mix. This marriage of hardware and software also means that our FSP 150 ProVM can provide CSPs with the most robust performance monitoring available. Unlike some vendors, who place monitoring in the software, our hardware-based monitoring isn’t susceptible to server failures or software issues.
Network Functions at Virtual Velocity
With our FSP 150 ProVM, CSPs can focus purely on developing new revenue streams and expanding their business. New services can be deployed at the touch of a button without any need for truck rolls. And with our advanced MEF CE2.0 feature set, you won’t need to worry about your connectivity network. Our FSP 150 ProVM features advanced operations, administration and maintenance capabilities that ensure your network is functioning as it should. What’s more, our FSP 150 ProVM is built on open protocols and open-source software. This level of openness dramatically simplifies network integration and eliminates any vendor lock-in.
