HP has announced HP NFV System, a pre-integrated network functions virtualization (NFV) platform designed to enable communications service providers (CSPs) to accelerate production NFV deployments. It is pre-integrated with HP Helion OpenStack Carrier Grade, providing an open-source-based cloud platform to support CSPs reliability, scalability and performance requirements.
HP has also introduced NFV Director 3.0, providing management and orchestration capabilities that enhance flexibility and scalability of CSPs current operations support systems (OSS), as well as new analytics capabilities. In addition, HP has unveiled new services to help CSPs transform their infrastructure for NFV.
NFV offers a new way for CSPs to design, deploy, and manage networking services. By decoupling the network functions from proprietary hardware appliances, CSPs can accelerate the introduction of new, compelling services quickly and cost-effectively.
HP NFV System brings together HP hardware and software to create a pre-integrated solution bundle optimized for NFV workloads. HP NFV System kits are built based on HP’s extensive NFV proof-of-concept experience and are designed to handle a variety of NFV use cases. The kits are designed with an optimal mix of hardware and software to simplify and accelerate NFV deployments, providing customers a simplified end-to-end experience from ordering, deployment, operations, lifecycle management and services… See more
