|Customer Deployment Details||
In 2015, together with Masergy we announced the first deployment of software-only, edge virtualization. Our lessons learnt:
1) Openness is essential for translating software innovation into speed and revenue.
2) VNF interoperability needs to be assured by ecosystem verifications.
3) Compute resources are scarce resources and software efficiency has significant impact on performance as well as economics.
4) MANO has to be security hardened, e.g., mitigating the known security risks of OpenStack.
|Key Customers||Deployed with Masergy & Indosat. Recent win with Verizon.|
