Network functions virtualization
Faster revenue with instant and on-demand service provisioning
How long does it take you to respond to your customer’s needs? How much revenue are you losing when you’re unable to activate a new service because you don’t have the necessary hardware or network integration? What if you could change this model? What if you could meet your customer’s expectations with the touch of a button? And put the power of choice in their hands? That’s the promise of network functions virtualization (NFV). This technology provides network functions on standard servers hosted either in the cloud or at the network’s edge.
Rapid, agile cloud-centric services
Our multi-award-winning Ensemble portfolio enables virtual network functions (VNFs) on standard and open servers with automated activation.
Seizing new service innovation is difficult when new equipment needs to be installed and old equipment removed. That’s why our NFV strategy is built on openness and automation, leading to choice, innovation and speed.
Simplicity is critical to security
We’ve combined automated operation with security-hardened implementation consistently across our entire portfolio.
An era of simplicity begins
NFV is the critical building block to realizing a network that can deliver new services instantly. With this technology, network operators can drive new business opportunities and dramatically reduce operation, administration and maintenance costs. The cornerstones of an NFV-centric network are automated configuration, intelligent programmability and secure encryption of data in motion. Our NFV technology is unique within the industry and can support a seamless evolution to an NFV-centric network.
Open solutions for speed, agility and choice
Our solutions are designed for openness, enabling our customers to select the best available technology and easily integrate highly competitive solutions.
Open networks generate new opportunities
Today’s monolithic networks serve the supplier more than the network operator. Seizing new service innovation is difficult when new equipment needs to be installed and old equipment removed. That’s why our NFV strategy is built on openness and automation, leading to choice, innovation and speed. Open interfaces ensure seamless integration and enable network operators to deploy best-of-breed technology. In this open network environment, software appliances extend network capabilities quickly and simply. Open protocols and open-source software for network controls eliminate today’s troublesome system integration effort. All these factors combine to accelerate innovation and grow revenue.
