Overture introduced a turnkey network functions virtualization (NFV) solution for virtual managed enterprise CPE (vE-CPE).
The pre-tested, integrated solution bundles third-party virtual branch office router, firewall, and VPN functions with Overture’s Ensemble OSA software and enablement services. Additional pre-integrated virtual network functions (VNFs)are available as options. Through the Overture Ensemble orchestration and control software, the vE-CPE functions can be deployed in a centralized environment, such as a datacenter or central office, or may be distributed out to virtualization platforms on the customer premise.
Overture said this solution combines its strength in Carrier Ethernet 2.0, its new Ensemble OSA NFV orchestration and control software, a set of third-party VNFs, Overture enablement services, and technical support to create a fully integrated solution.
“In a growing ecosystem of independent software vendors, communications service providers (CSPs) that want to explore modern virtualization options may be resource-constrained to adequately evaluate all of the choices as well as perform all the required system integration work,” said Mike Aquino, president and CEO, Overture. “The Overture vE-CPE Ensemble Solution Pack provides an open, pre-integrated, fully-supported NFV solution to help them accelerate their enterprise service deployments.”
