Ampliphae and Iricent Form Partnership to Leverage Advances in Software Defined Networking and Artificial Intelligence

Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, February 2017 – Ampliphae, a Belfast-based technology company specialising in cloud network analytics and control, and Iricent, a Dublin-based provider of SDN and NFV-based open networking solutions, applications and services, have announced a partnership aimed at helping Service Providers exploit advances in Software Defined Networking and network-based Artificial Intelligence. The partnership will enable Service Providers to offer new value-added capabilities to their Enterprise customers, enabling them to assert control of their application delivery infrastructure as they move business-critical applications to the cloud. Research firm IDC predicts that by 2018, 36% of the global enterprise application market will be cloud-based, presenting IT managers with unprecedented challenges in managing and controlling the new enterprise application infrastructure. The wide area network is becoming ever-more critical in delivering cloud applications to end users, with the same high levels of performance, availability and security as on-premise applications. From an Enterprise perspective, however, traditional networking services remain too complex, costly and inflexible to effectively support their transition to a cloud-first application delivery model. The Ampliphae/Iricent partnership addresses these challenges by combining the strengths of both companies, creating a compelling offering for Service Providers to give their Enterprise customers deeper insights and more control of cloud adoption across their businesses. Ampliphae uses advanced statistical analysis of network traffic flows, combined with machine learning techniques, to identify, classify and profile all of the cloud applications being used across the Enterprise. Iricent’s OpenDaylight-based SDN solution, APNOS, then uses this information, combined with other network traffic identification techniques, to automate the process of network resource allocation with application-level granularity, ensuring that business-critical cloud services are...

Iricent showcases MANO as a Service (MaaS) at SDN World Congress in October.

The Iricent MANO as a Service (MaaS) high availability, multi-tenant platform enables service providers to rapidly test, demo, trial and go-live with NFV based customer services. This unique proposition addresses the requirements of service providers who want to deploy NFV based services without the up-front investment in the necessary cloud based network management infrastructure and related resources. Aimed at both service providers and equipment providers, the MaaS solution removes the common commercial and resource related barriers to adoption of NFV and facilitates rapid deployment of new services for enterprise customers. Iricent MaaS leverages an existing eco-system of carefully chosen partner platforms to provide a catalog of existing VNFs which have already been on-boarded, in turn reducing the time to market for new services. Typical deployments to date are focussed on vCPE related services and leverage the benefits of packet processing technology such as DPDK on cost effective Intel Atom based platforms to ensure performance and throughput can be guaranteed. Speaking during the recent SDN World Congress in October, Damian Murray from Iricent commented, “over the course of 2015 and early 2016, our discussions with service providers kept coming back to two main concerns, the ability to resource an NFV deployment and the associated commercial risk. We quickly realised that we had the components and capability to address these concerns and are delighted to be able to showcase and demo the platform at this event and to offer it to customers and partners who wish to rapidly test, trial and deploy NFV services in a cost effective manner.” For more information on MANO as a Service and other platforms, visit...
