Some of you may recognize the name Brocade. Yes, you may know Brocade as the leading supplier of data center networking products, and have heard of their IP connectivity and enterprise mobility solutions. But we’d like you to consider another side of Brocade -- a side deep-rooted in the enabling technologies currently shaping and redefining communication networks, namely Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).

At MWC, Brocade will be there showing how we are ‘Your Open Network to 5G’.  Our mobile strategy is simple: to help mobile operators re-architect their networks to support 5G services and deliver higher agility and performance at a fraction of the cost of traditional networks.  We deliver this strategy by simplifying the network infrastructure and making it possible for operators to begin the transformation to 5G today.  Our SDN and NFV technology provide the foundation for mobile operators to re-define how they architect their networks to address the challenges and enable new services including IoT, M2M, high definition video and virtual mobile networking.

 

The demonstrations we are planning include...

As the networking industry continues to embrace network function virtualization (NFV) as a long-term architectural target, mobile operators continue to analyze how and where it makes sense to incorporate NFV into their technology and operations plans. The promise of NFV is enormous – enabling service providers to scale flexibility in resources to fluctuations in demand, reducing time to market for new products and services, reducing capital and operating expenses through economies of scale, and encouraging open ecosystems to accelerate innovation.  While operators are anxious to realize these goals, the long-term architecture of NFV is difficult to deconstruct into practical short-term steps with quantifiable benefits. Thus, a major challenge facing mobile operators is how quickly to integrate, deploy, and operate NFV when it represents a significant CAPEX investment and operational paradigm shift.

 

Brocade and Openet have partnered together with exactly this goal: delivering solutions that providing quantifiable and recognizable benefits to specific operator challenges. Combining the expertise of Brocade in delivering virtual network functions and Openet’s expertise in policy management and lifecycle management for virtualized network functions, these pre-integrated solutions are specifically focused on Machine to Machine (M2M) and Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) / Mobile Virtual Network Enablers (MVNEs).

NFV-in-a-box: Making NFV Deployments Easy

by kevin.shatzkamer on ‎02-05-2016 01:29 PM - last edited on ‎02-05-2016 03:55 PM by ShelbyKhan (18,160 Views)

Despite industry claims that NFV will reduce overall CapEx, mobile service providers understand there is an initial upfront investment that must be weighed within current budget constraints. In addition, NFV represents a significant operational paradigm shift.  The move to NFV technologies transforms the network from a physical, proprietary hardware model with CLI configurations to software running on x86 compute equipment.  This is a massive transformation that requires additional skillsets and a different mindset.  Hardware skillsets become less important and software skillsets are needed, something many mobile service providers are early in the process of developing.  All of these challenges have mobile service providers facing some uncertainties how to proceed with NFV and therefore, are delaying NFV deployments.

 

Recognizing these challenges, Brocade and Metaswitch have teamed up to help mobile service providers accelerate the deployment of NFV by developing a ‘NFV-in-a-Box’ solution, specifically focused on allowing mobile operators to deploy NFV-based IMS VoLTE. Rather than NFV simply being a technology to implement without a clear path as to how, Brocade and Metaswitch have combined technologies to develop pre-integrated and validated solutions. Combined, these solutions represent an ‘Easy button’ approach to VoLTE NFV deployments.
