Aricent Carrier Grade SDN and NFV Solutions Summary
As software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) gain more traction within the market, more and more organizations look to these technologies as the top choices for deployment. As they do, carrier grade SDN and NFV solutions have become vastly more important. It’s easy to understand why — both SDN and NFV limit operational costs, reduce inventory and network management, quicken provisioning, enhance network security, and offer better flexibility and scalability. Not to mention, both are able to be deployed in several scenarios, including data center, enterprise, and carrier networks.
Despite all of these benefits, Communication Service Providers (CSPs) still aren’t sold on SDN quite yet. They expect Communications Equipment Providers (CEPs) to create and offer SDN and NFV solutions that are cost-effective, provide easy deployment, and are feature-rich. CSPs want all of this, and they don’t want to sacrifice performance in a virtualized environment to get it.
This special DemoFriday addresses these concerns, and focuses on carrier grade SDN and NFV solutions, specifically optimizing their development. In the demo, Aricent experts provide valuable insight into how existing networking solutions can be transitioned into cloud-based solutions through support of SDN and NFV. Other areas of interest in this exclusive DemoFriday include:
- Streamlining the development of carrier grade SDN and NFV solutions, including migration of legacy networking products to SDN and NFV
- Showcase of various SDN and NFV applications that can be leveraged to create solutions such as Virtual CPE (vCPE), OpenFlow switches, and Cloud EPC
- NFV solutions for I/O performance bottlenecks
- Functionalities offered by leading open source platforms, such as OpenDaylight and OpenStack
