Network Agility. Service Innovation.
Communications service providers (CSPs) face exploding network traffic, declining profit margins, over-the-top (OTT) players rolling out new services faster and consumers constantly expecting more. Hewlett Packard Enterprise OpenNFV helps CSPs thrive in this increasingly fast-paced environment by accelerating the journey from old-school networks built on monolithic, proprietary appliances to more agile cloud networks enabled by Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).
You can move to a virtualised network and instantly add capacity and manage the entire network from a single, unified control application. Finally, you can achieve true agility in network configuration and management.
Our NFV solution is based on CSP-defined ETSI standards and built on open-source architecture that helps minimise your capital and operating expenditures.
HPE OpenNFV Partner Programme opens access to applications that best serve your customers. Our five worldwide labs accelerate the design-to-deployment cycle while lowering risk through interoperability testing.
With HPE Helion OpenStack Carrier Grade as a foundation, you can count on always-on availability, reliability and performance. Our vast IT and cloud expertise, and carrier-grade capabilities will ease your transition to the new business of the network where, as a CSP, you have control to make the choices you want, for the network you need.
More Than 60 NFV Proof of Concept Projects
Hewlett Packard Enterprise has been active in developing standards that help CSPs speed service development and delivery. To date, ETSI has approved nine HPE Proofs of Concept and the OpenNFV team is working with CSP customers and NEP partners on over 40 others. 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.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise NFV Portfolio
Your pathway to service virtualisation.
Pre-integrated kits include HPE NFV Starter Kit, HPE Compute Kit, HPE Storage Kit – all based on the HPE OpenNFV reference architecture.
Building next-generation networks is easier thanks to the performance and reliability of this virtual infrastructure manager.
Get management, orchestration and analytics capabilities that enhance the flexibility and scalability of current CSP operations support systems
Operationalise your NFV solution with our Carrier SDN solution that drives programmability and agility in the network.
Move into the virtualisation era with confidence – meet the operational challenges of NFV with HPE’s approach, bridging old and new, to enable a successful NFV transformation.
We deliver the industry’s most open, end-to-end, carrier-grade Telco Cloud backbone. Based on the ETSI reference architecture, OpenNFV leverages Open Source technology and includes NFV infrastructure and virtual infrastructure manager, software-defined networking (SDN), and OSS and orchestration capabilities. HPE and partner VNFs are validated on our reference architecture to provide a large partner ecosystem and agility, speed and time-to-market advantages for launching new services – fulfilling the NFV promise.
Build your NFV proof-of-concept and path-to-deployment with reputable network equipment providers, independent software vendors and system integrators. The HPE OpenNFV Partner programme integrates best-in-class third-party technologies and gives you the freedom to choose the best applications to serve your customers. And, HPE OpenNFV Labs ensures those applications are tested and validated on our reference architecture – and ready to deploy in carrier networks.
