Ensemble Launches Major Upgrade to NFV Platform

227 views

Published on

Our Ensemble virtualization software suite has been significantly enhanced and optimized for telco-scale NFV deployments. The new release largely focuses on improving the deployability and cost of universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) - still the most prevalent NFV use case. The new features and functions outlined in these slides are a direct result of customer input and our Ensemble team’s experience of multiple real-world NFV deployments.

Ensemble Launches Major Upgrade to NFV Platform

  1. 1. Ensemble Launches Major Upgrade to NFV Platform May 2017
  2. 2. © 2017 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. Confidential.22 What’s New? • The Ensemble virtualization software suite has been significantly enhanced and optimized for telco-scale NFV deployments • The new Ensemble release largely focuses on improving the deployability and cost of universal customer premises equipment (uCPE), which is still the most prevalent NFV use case • The new features and functions are a direct result of customer input and the Ensemble team’s experience of multiple real-world NFV deployments
  3. 3. © 2017 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. Confidential.33 Key Points • Performance optimized for simplified deployment of low-cost uCPE solutions • Solves the common deployablity issues of telco-scale NFV • Enables additional NFV-based use cases with innovative features and new functionality • Meets the feature, function and financial requirements for deploying NFV-based virtual services at scale
  4. 4. © 2017 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. Confidential.44 New Features • Zero touch provisioning: Empowers an operator to ship an unconfigured COTS server to a customer site and commission it automatically • Embedded cloud: Solves the problems of deploying OpenStack in the distributed telco network • LTE wireless support: Enables turnup of sites that don’t yet have wireline connectivity, as well as providing an economical means of resilient access • Resource optimization: Shrinks the footprint of the NFV infrastructure down to a single Intel® Atom™ core
  5. 5. © 2017 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. Confidential.55 VNFs Ensemble Connector Architecture • Scalable DPDK data plane that delivers software-based Layer 2 and Layer 3 functionality • High-performance virtual hosting environment for broad range of third-party VNFs • Predictable throughput and latency for NFV applications • Variety of remote management interfaces • OAM protocols for service assurance monitoring – very important for NFV applications Intel X86 HW (Xeon & Atom), Evaluating ARM Linux (CentOS) L2/L3 Data Path DPDK Protocols: LACP, LDP, SOAM, TWAMP OpenStack Controller Services: Nova, Neutron, Cinder, Ceilometer, Horizon, Glance, Keystone, Swift Control Plane Agents and APIs KVM/QEMU Physical Ports Virtual Ports OpenStack Compute Agents Docker Container Docker ContainerNETCONF CLI REST Management Tier Manager Controller Orchestrator HW Monitoring System Mgmt LibVirt
  6. 6. © 2017 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. Confidential.66 New Use Cases • uCPE on very low-cost COTS servers: Now service providers can realize the benefits of NFV even at the low end of the market, including 4-core Atom™ servers • Secure hybrid cloud over L2/L3 access: Hybrid cloud works best over a transparent and secure Layer 2 connection, which can now be provided over any access link: IP or Carrier Ethernet, on-net or off-net • Software SD-WAN: Service providers can now deploy SD-WAN as a software VNF on a COTS server, rather using than a closed appliance • On-demand deployment: Using LTE, operators can now enable customer sites even when they don’t have wireline access • Wireless backup option: LTE can be used for a backup in cases where a second wireline connection is not economical
  7. 7. © 2017 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. Confidential.77 Customer Response Tim Naramore, CTO, Masergy: “As a pioneer in worldwide NFV deployment, we’ve found that the types of features offered by Ensemble are critical to a sound virtualization strategy. They offer innovative solutions for any service provider committed to delivering efficiency, flexibility and service control. The latest enhancements to Ensemble align well with our commitment to cutting through complexity, simplifying service innovation and speeding up deployment. Ultimately, it’s about delivering even more to our customers – more speed, more choice and more value.”
