Iricent NFV Solutions

While it is widely agreed that NFV presents compelling benefits for Service Providers of all sizes, it is also accepted that the deployment of NFV based solutions also requires barriers such as technology complexity and related operating approach changes to be overcome.

Our NFV solutions comprise three main components designed specifically to remove these barriers and allow service providers to take full advantage of the many NFV use cases available today. In particular we aim to assist service providers to:

  • Shorten and accelerate the time to market with new products and services
  • Reduce CAPEX and the need for specialised resources
  • Leverage the agility of NFV to quickly deploy and adapt as customer demand changes.

Iricent NFV Solutions are available individually or in combination depending on the use case and specific requirements of the customer.

Iricent NFV Cloud

The Iricent NFV Cloud provides both the cloud based network management infrastructure coupled with the orchestration and control platforms required to support telco grade NFV deployments. Our MANO platform conforms to the relevant ETSI specifications and is available in both hosted and on premise deployment to support open compute node solutions for

  • Wholesale Operators
  • Service Providers and MSP’s and
  • System Integrators

who wish to take advantage of Flexible Deployment and Management/Orchestration of versatile enterprise services.

Iricent Universal CPE (uCPE)

Iricent uCPE leverages the Iricent NFV Cloud or Third Party MANO if preferred and combines this with high performance NFVi (Micro Cloud and NetOS) to deliver a range of distributed solutions for customers including

  • Distributed and cloud based software appliances (e.g. WAN Optimisation, Security, Routing and SD WAN) as integrated or centralised managed services
  • L2 and L3 network connectivity for commercial services
  • Secure VPN connectivity with multi-hop encryption

The Iricent uCPE solution also acts as an optional deployment platform for our Managed SD WAN solutions

Iricent NFV Eco-System

The Iricent Eco-system compliments both the Iricent NFV Cloud and uCPE solutions above through a combination of technology and solution partnerships both with established global vendors and innovative start-up companies who provide an extensive catalogue of pre-on boarded Virtual Network Functions (VNF’s) and a broad range of COTS, Tailored and Carrier Grade hardware platforms.

Iricent NFV solutions also leverage our extensive Iricent Services offering including development, onboarding and integration services and are further complimented by our range of Lifecycle, consulting and training services.
