Samsung’s network virtualization solutions are built on the AdaptiV platform, which runs a powerful and flexible KVM-based hypervisor on top of hardware custom-tuned by Samsung to provide maximum performance and efficiency to operators. Optionally, AdaptiV can be run on general-purpose, Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) hardware. AdaptiV solutions are also supported by Samsung’s CognitiV Cloud Manager system for flexible and scalable management of processing, storage and network resources.

AdaptiV’s virtualization of network functions allows a higher utilization rate of the elements in an operator’s network. Large upgrade projects and localized over-provisioning, both common practices in the past, are now replaced by a pay-as-you-grow model where incremental additions become both viable and conducive to healthy long-term network growth. AdaptiV’s solutions are designed to be integrated with existing operations and with other vendors’ open-source solutions for flexability.
