Network Function Virtualization Applications
Mobile operators must get ready to face the business demands of the future by investing in scalable and flexible next-gen network infrastructures. Operational efficiency and migration to next-gen networks (NGN) are key drivers for VAS consolidation. Eventually, service plane will be migrating to 4G and 5G and running on the NFV/SDN infrastructure.
To expand into new business areas, operators need to provide services that transcend voice and data. They need to embrace new markets and services – such as enterprise cloud, Internet-of-Things (IoT), Big Data, and Business Intelligence – to create novel opportunities for increasing revenue. They need to transform their IT systems from internal-supporting systems to business-enabling systems.
Recent advances in hardware, virtualization, cloud technologies and new network models, such as NFV/SDN, created new opportunities for consolidation of multiple products and services on a single platform.
NFV uses traditional IT virtualization techniques on commodity hardware (compute, storage, and networking) to consolidate network applications onto industry high-volume servers and storage. This approach allows to gain from both the cost and innovation dynamics of traditional IT.
Telenity Canvas Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) enables a bottom-up transformation of mobile operator services, building on top of a virtualized hardware infrastructure that utilizes common off-the-shelf (COTS) components, and shared industry-standard media and signaling servers, eliminating dependencies on specialized network appliances. The Canvas platform delivers a flexible and cost-effective environment based on an NFV-ready design paradigm.
The benefits of fully virtualized Canvas NFV applications can be summarized as:
- Faster time to market
- On demand scalability/descalability
- Improved OPEX and CAPEX
- Simplified integration and optimized daily operations
- Configuration driven integration of operation and maintenance functions
To help communication service providers in their digital transformation, Telenity’s overarching goal is to become the preferred partner and NFV applications supplier of innovative Messaging/VAS Consolidation, Location, API Management, and Digital Service Enrichment solutions for wireless and wireline communication service providers. With Telenity’s market-proven software products, operators significantly improve the operational efficiency of their service offerings and seamlessly migrate them to Virtual Network Functions.
