San Francisco, IDF, September 10, 2014 – Kontron today announced it has collaborated with software vendors GENBAND and Wind River to demonstrate a Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)-enabled Session Border Controller application on the Kontron Symkloud MS2910 2RU high density platform. Supporting the GENBAND SBC Virtualized Network Function (VNF) is a framework for six-nines reliability using Wind River NFV software that enables NFV infrastructure to achieve the carrier grade reliability required for telecom networks.
Kontron will be on hand in the Network Builders Community, Booth 933, during the Intel Developer Forum to discuss how telco and cloud service providers can leverage this scalable solution to reduce both capital expenses (CAPEX) and operating expenses (OPEX) as they progressively deploy NFV in their networks.
“This Virtual Network Function (VNF) collaboration underscores the significant progress made in the industry to give operators the fastest path to achieving a greater level of service without compromising high availability nor performance,” said Philippe Chevallier, Director Product Management and Platform Architecture, Communication Business Unit, Kontron. “Kontron is committed to expanding its integration efforts with partners to ensure service providers can deploy with confidence high density, high availability platforms that are already pre-validated for NFV infrastructure.”
“The Wind River portfolio of NFV solutions delivers the essential carrier grade reliability required for NFV infrastructure. We''re seeing great momentum in the ecosystem for both VNF and hardware providers validating their solutions with our NFV technologies, including Kontron,” said Glenn Seiler, Vice President, Product Management at Wind River. “Showcasing a virtualized Session Border Controller VNF application running on our NFV-ready platform on Symkloud demonstrates Kontron''s deep experience in providing COTS carrier grade hardware designs for service and cloud providers.”
“Offering service providers more choices in their NFV and SDN cloud deployments using our multiple VNF applications and VNF Manager provides numerous competitive advantanges,” said Sanjay Bhatia, Senior Director of Solutions Marketing for GENBAND...
