Network operators are turning to Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) in order to reduce hardware dependencies, optimize capital expenditures, and accelerate their ability to deploy new services and generate revenue. NFV enables network operators to utilize common, off-the-shelf hardware resources and software platforms, gaining economies of scale and reducing power consumption and space required.
The virtualized PacketLogic/V platform does just that. It enables flexible deployments of PacketLogic software using industry-standard COTS hardware and software virtual environments, without compromising on the performance or features of the traditional appliance-based solutions. All three of the functional components that make up Procera’s PacketLogic software – real-time enforcement, the subscriber manager, and intelligence center – can be readily provisioned without purchasing vendor-specific, single-use hardware configurations or purpose-built hardware, allowing network operators to begin realizing the benefits of network functions virtualization.
The PacketLogic/V virtualized platform, Procera’s NFV solution, is designed to enable network operators to gain insights and take action on broadband traffic to enhance the subscriber experience.
Virtualization Meets Network Intelligence
Which elements of carrier networks should be virtualized first?
Michael Kay, VP of Business Development at Procera Networks, describes ways in which both Mobile and Fixed Operators can benefit from Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). Procera Networks' focus has been on making NFV a reality for our customers- delivering high performance and the same set of capabilities, regardless of whether customers are utilizing the traditional hardware-based product or the virtualized solution.
Procera Alliance Program
The Procera Alliances Program provides our Solutions and Technology partners with access to the products, processes and people that can help us to mutually expand sales, enhance customer relationships and distinguish us from the competition. This program offers a combination of benefits and resources to assist you in driving a profitable business around Internet Intelligence and Subscriber Experience solutions.
NFV Performance Journey
We have worked with Intel through their Network Builders program to optimize our PacketLogic/V virtualized software solution to demonstrate that high-performance NFV applications can be successfully deployed on Intel® architecture-based COTS platforms without compromising on performance. Watch the video of Procera and Intel describing this journey and our industry leading NFV performance benchmarks.
Procera's Strategic Shift to NFV
Procera's Mike Kay talks about the strategic shift that Procera has made in NFV (Network Functions Virtualization). See how NFV is moving from creating proof of concepts to being deployed in networking environments to help to solve real business problems.
With the coming of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN), the networking industry is on the cusp of fundamental and profound change. Virtualization is eradicating the need for specialized hardware infrastructure and is introducing the opportunity to rapidly deploy new and differentiated services on COTS hardware, decreasing capital and operational expenditures, as well as the amount of time needed to deploy, significantly.
