Network Functions Virtualisation
Bring innovative new services to market faster with an agile and elastic virtual network.
Welcome to Interoperability with Low Risk
Communications Service Providers (CSPs) face exploding network traffic and declining profit margins. They must compete with over-the-top players who can roll out new services much faster. Hewlett Packard Enterprise helps CSPs thrive in this disruptive environment by accelerating their journey from old-school networks built on monolithic, proprietary appliances to more agile networks enabled by Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV).
The Hewlett Packard Enterprise NFV platform features an open architecture, an extensive partner ecosystem, and full proof-of-concept testing and deployment support. Our vast IT expertise and carrier-grade capabilities will ease your transition to the new business of the network.
Minimise your capital and operating expenditure with our NFV solution based on CSP-defined ETSI standards and built on open-source, non-proprietary architecture. Make the most of existing infrastructure and extend your current investment to initiate NFV transformation through management and orchestration (MANO), operations support system (OSS) and business support system (BSS) solutions.
Specialised vendor and partner solutions accelerate the design-to-deployment cycle of cloud-enabled network services and applications. You can manage the entire network from a single, unified control application. And with carrier-grade HPE Helion OpenStack as the foundation, you can expect always-on availability, reliability and performance.
Over 50 Completed Proofs of Concept and Deployed NFV Projects
Hewlett Packard Enterprise has been active in developing standards that help CSPs speed service development and delivery. To date, ETSI has approved 15 HPE Proofs of Concept. Prodip Sen, our chief technology officer for NFV, serves as chairman of the OPNFV committee. HPE Distinguished Technologist Marie-Paul Odini services as vice-chair of ETSI. And Sarwar Raza, our vice president for NFV product management, sits on the board of the OpenDaylight initiative.
