Iricent’s SDN/NFV Services

Iricent activities are concentrated on three very closely related SDN/NFV activities:

  • SDN Application Development (and related OpenDaylight SDN Controller plugins and APIs)
  • NFV MANO (Management and Orchestration) services including MaaS – MANO as a Service
  • VAR partnerships with open standards focussed Network Equipment Providers (NEPs) offering SDN/NFV platforms


Iricent Professional Services are a critical component of the Iricent SDN/NFV ecosystem illustrated above.

Iricent services are targeted at Network Equipment Providers and Service Providers – in particular those requiring assistance deploying OpenStack cloud infrastructure based NFV MANO (Management and Orchestration) solutions.

These services, coupled with our SDN/NFV know-how and insights, enable our Service Provider customers and NEP partners to On-board, Design, Deploy, Operate and Maintain NFV services.

MANO as a Service (Iricent MaaS) 

Iricent MaaS, our market leading NFV MANO services platform, addresses the requirements of Network Equipment Providers and Service Providers wishing to deploy NFV services but not wanting to invest in the necessary cloud based network management infrastructure, infrastructure management (OpenStack) and related resources.

Iricent MaaS shortens time to market and reduces CAPEX requirements for new service launches. The platform can also facilitate demo, test, trial or pilot requirements for customers and partners.

Iricent MaaS is open standards based (OpenStack, OpenDaylight) and utilises carefully chosen and proven partner implementations. VNFs supported in standard deployment include vSwitch, vRouter and vFirewall. Because of the openness of the Iricent MaaS platform other compatible VNFs can be flexibly and cost effectively incorporated in customer specific deployments.

OSS/BSS (FCAPS, CDR) integration services can also be provided in addition to our MANO related services.

We design and deliver these services in conjunction with our Iricent Eco-System partner Ammeon.
