WebNMS and Calsoft Labs Partner to Accelerate NFV and SDN Integration into Orchestrated Multi-Vendor Service Provider Networks
Carrier Network Virtualization 2014
PALO ALTO, Calif. & PLEASANTON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--WebNMS, the leading provider of multi-vendor network management and IoT solutions, and Calsoft Labs, a pioneer in network function virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) services, today announced a partnership to help service providers increase their revenue and reduce costs by delivering virtual services on their existing networks. The partners are exhibiting their collaborative solutions at the Carrier Network Virtualization conference being held Dec. 9-11, 2014, in Palo Alto.
“With Calsoft integrating our Symphony platform with NFV solutions, network providers get unified, multi-vendor network management, flexible service orchestration and a broad choice of virtual appliances.”
To meet the growing demand for dynamic network services, providers need solutions to transform their existing network and service management processes into orchestration systems that automate existing operations and rapidly incorporate new, on-demand services. To enable this transformation, WebNMS offers the WebNMS Symphony Orchestration Platform. Symphony combines multi-vendor carrier network management solutions, based on the field-proven WebNMS Framework, with the Composer Workflow Framework that helps providers automate their unique operations.
Calsoft Labs offers professional services to help network operators simplify multi-vendor network management, end-to-end service provisioning and SLA monitoring for Carrier Ethernet services. In addition, Calsoft Labs offers high performance VNF frameworks as well as NFV orchestration and systems integration services to help network operators deliver new revenue-generating services in an agile and cost-effective manner. As a WebNMS partner, Calsoft Labs will offer professional services to help customers leverage WebNMS Symphony as the unified network management and service orchestration platform for advanced Ethernet services.
“Collaboration between WebNMS and Calsoft Labs gives service providers a clear path to orchestrating NFV in conjunction with their existing services,” said Prabhu Ramachandran, director of WebNMS. “With Calsoft integrating our Symphony platform with NFV solutions, network providers get unified, multi-vendor network management, flexible service orchestration and a broad choice of virtual appliances.”
“Service providers see the tremendous value in a unified network management and service orchestration solution that spans across access, metro and core network domains,” said Narendra Dhara, senior vice president and CTO at Calsoft Labs. “By partnering with WebNMS, we hope to simplify end-to-end service provisioning, including NFV services like virtual CPE for next-generation business Ethernet services.”
Calsoft Labs and WebNMS representatives will be available during the Carrier Network Virtualization event to provide more insights into their joint offer.
