Join the network revolution
The steady adoption of cloud-based services, bring your own device (BYOD) and the Internet of Things has seen an explosion of devices accessing the network. All these devices need to be authenticated and managed but legacy network infrastructures and traditional approaches to network access design are ill-equipped for the task.
The good news is that networking is evolving. It’s moving towards open standards-based solutions with decoupled data and management traffic, running on commercial, off-the-shelf hardware. Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) are enabling this new network environment where advanced authentication and device management, automation and customisation are key characteristics.
Our complete suite of SDN and NFV-based open networking solutions coupled with our services including our market leading Iricent NFV Cloud will help you transform your network into a dynamic, virtualised and automated environment.
SDN enables network virtualisation and automation and allows you to directly programme your network control for easy automation of policy management. The SDN Controller gives you a complete overview of your network. Find out more about SDN from Iricent.
NFV separates the network functions, such as routing, firewalls, load balancing, etc. from proprietary hardware. These functions can then run as virtual appliances in software, speeding up service innovation and deployment. Find out more about NFV from Iricent.
uCPE solutions enable the replacement of multiple disconnected, expensive and usually proprietary pieces of equipment providing network functions – routing, firewall, VPN, NAT, access control, policy management, etc. – with a single, general purpose hardware platform that can be easily and more cost effectively upgraded.
SDN applications make it possible to deploy and optimise network functions on the fly, optimising user experience and improving application and infrastructure ROI. Find out more about VNFs and applications from Iricent.
NFV MANO (Management and Orchestration) is the framework for the management and orchestration of all network resources in the cloud. This includes computing, networking, storage and virtual machine (VM) resources.
SD-WAN abstracts the underlying transport network and moves network control into the cloud to deliver a business-class, secure and feature rich WAN, in turn simplifying wide area networking and delivering a range of benefits.
