Iricent selected as a partner by Intel in the Network Builders Winners Circle Program.

We are delighted to announce that Iricent has been selected as a partner by Intel in the Network Builders Winners Circle Program. The award was achieved for bringing to market the Iricent NFV Cloud platform utilizing Intel centric uCPE HW with NFVI SW, MANO and VNFs from leading vendor partners. Initial use case is uCPE and Edge Cloud deployment for SP and Enterprise Customers – typically focussed on SD WAN, while the rapidly emerging use case is Neutral Host for Mobile – specifically 5G deployment on vRAN. “As a member of the Intel Network Builders ecosystem, Iricent has contributed to the acceleration of network transformation by working closely with Intel and our ecosystem and we would like to recognize your contributions by awarding Iricent in our Winners’ Circle Program as a Partner.” We are looking forward to even closer collaboration with Intel as we close out 2019 and head into 2020.  ...

If you want to have a chat about SD-WAN, managed and un-managed uCPE, network automation, 5G in a virtualized World or anything else for that matter drop us a line and we’d be delighted to meet up –...

Iricent at SDN World Congress 2018

  We are delighted to be returning to the annual SDN World Congress in The Hague next week and to be attending Intel’s Network Builders Summit on Monday October 8th. We’re very much looking forward to meeting up with old friends from the networking community and making new connections. Apart from catching up on latest developments and concepts in relation to SDN and NFV in general, their adoption in 5G, IoT rollouts, etc.  we are particularly interested in the rapidly evolving network edge where advances in relation to SD-WAN and to uCPE deployments are accelerating all the time. The OpenDaylight SDN Controller network automation use case is another topic getting lots of attention from our customer base these days. If you would like to meet up in The Hague to find out more about what we do and how we can help or if you could just like to chat about the developments mentioned above, drop us a line at events@iricent.com  or contact us at the show to meet up.  ...

Iricent Launches Managed SD-WAN Services

Iricent recently launched a cloud based Managed SD-WAN Service targeted at Service Providers who wish to have access to a white label services platform. Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) is a specific software-defined networking (SDN) technology use case applied to WAN connections which is rapidly gaining interest and seeing increased adoption in enterprise networks as it offers many advantages over traditional, fixed Wide Area Networks. SD-WAN architecture uses SDN principles to separate the data plane from the control plane in the WAN. It abstracts the underlying transport networks (MPLS, broadband internet, wireless, satellite) and shifts control intelligence from customer premises equipment (CPE) or edge devices to a centralized controller and in turn delivers many benefits including: All-in-one solution (WAN optimization, policy based control, application prioritisation, …) Lower cost for VPNs Access flexibility and redundancy Works over a variety of media (MPLS, Broadband Internet, LTE, satellite) Dynamic path selection and load sharing across WAN connections Simplifies the branch network making it easier to manage with increased network agility ZTP – Zero Touch Provisioning For service providers, SD WAN provides a unique opportunity to broaden the existing service offerings independently of existing reach and without the need for additional. Barriers to entry for new SD WAN services are significantly lower as SD WAN is an OTT offering and a service provider can offer customised SD WAN services that are tailored to specific use cases such as real time traffic or are further enhanced with cost effective WAN Optimisation for example. Iricent SD WAN At Iricent, our platforms are designed and delivered to allow providers to offer SD WAN services as cost effectively as possible...

Iricent at Mobile World Congress 2018

  Less than one week to go now to MWC 2018 in Barcelona and along with catching up with customers, partners and even friends, we’re looking forward to catching up with all that’s new in the telecoms world. Expect to hear lots of 5G announcements and plently of IoT, artificial intelligence and machine learning details over the week from 26th February – 1St March, all of which we expect will drive an even more accelerated rate of innovation across all walks of industry and life in general over the coming years. Of course central to all of this, and to the congress itself, is the network and at Iricent that’s the part that we are mostly interested in. Over the course of next week, we will be particularly interested to learn about new network developments being introduced both in relation to platforms and services, almost all of which take advantage of the increasing adoption of both SDN and NFV technologies as these become increasingly central to network and services deployments. Both SDN and NFV are central to what we do and to the products and services we offer and provide to customers. Both are also complex technologies and require a new way of doing things but both provide real and quantifiable benefits to service provider and enterprise networks when taken full advantage of. If you would like to meet up in Barcelona to find out more about what we do and how we can help or if you could just like to chat about the developments mentioned above, drop us a line at events@iricent.com or contact us at the...
