Mirantis NFV Solution
NFV Requires a Carrier-Grade Cloud
Service providers worldwide are in the process of retooling and deploying Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to increase revenue and reduce capital and operational expenses. In fact, 5G will not succeed without NFV and SDN given the tremendous agility and application versatility required. However, NFV places unique carrier-grade requirements on the underlying NFV cloud (NFVI and VIM) that service providers must fulfill in addition to general enterprise cloud requirements. Mirantis Cloud Platform (MCP) is the best-in-class solution to address these carrier-grade and enterprise cloud requirements.
Mirantis enables telecom operators to leverage a disaggregated NFV stack that is tuned for high performance and based on open source standards and non-proprietary infrastructure hardware. Our NFV solution comprises a hardened reference platform compliant with the ETSI-NFV reference architecture, built using 100% open source software. Some of the NFV-centric open source projects we participate in are OpenStack, OPNFV, ETSI NFV ISG, OpenDaylight, ONAP and Open Source MANO.
Working with some of the largest operators in the world, we’ve gained tremendous experience in delivering production clouds for NFV use cases including Edge, Mobile and IoT. Along the way, we’ve developed vendor partnerships and services for easier VNF Onboarding, and innovative technologies such as Virtlet to better address Edge compute requirements.
Automated VNF Validation
Mirantis provides a pipeline on top of a MCP-based VIM to automate the validation and certification of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs). VNF package images are loaded, validated and certified via the DriveTrain lifecycle management system, which utilizes Infrastructure as Code to continuously deliver VNF configurations, scripts and binary sources into production after they pass automated test suites designed to ensure system performance and reliability. The automated pipeline enables you to quickly and safely consume the latest VNF versions or implement configuration changes as needed for your network.
