Telekom Austria's Serbian Subsidiary Demos vEPC with Connectem and Partners

Telekom Austria Group’s Serbian subsidiary, Vip mobile, demonstrated a fully virtualized LTE stack in a live network delivering data, voice and IMS services.

Connectem provided the virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC). Metaswitch provided its virtualized Clearwater IMS Solution and OpenCloud provided the virtualized VoLTE functionality.

Connectem’s Vip mobile Ecosystem Partners include:

VMware -- Connectem and VMware collaborated to bring VMware vSphere to the VCM solution.  Telekom Austria Group undertook numerous tests to experience the resilience of Connectem VCM across VMware vSphere to understand the long-term implications of running a vEPC in a virtualized infrastructure.

Procera -- Within the Connectem VCM, essential DPI functionality enabling application detection and content optimization is provided by Procera’s NAVL DPI engine. Procera’s software-based DPI technology is well suited to fit within the scalable dataplane of the VCM.  Procera NAVL allows Connectem to integrate this vital traffic treatment function without the performance degradation typically generated by traditional DPI solutions.

Red Hat -- The combination of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, including the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor, and Connectem’s Virtual Core for Mobile (VCM) creates an NFV environment providing a high-performance, cost-effective OpenStack managed NFV implementation that can help to increase infrastructure flexibility and that can be scaled up or down to accommodate the needs of the network.

Guenther Ottendorfer, CTO Telekom Austria Group, said, “NFV is a paradigm shift for the global Telecom industry but also shows that there are many innovations on the horizon which will further enhance the customer’s experience and the operator’s ability to meet the customer’s changing expectations. NFV signals a new optimism within our industry, with the potential of offering huge opportunities to reengineer and optimize network infrastructure and deliver better service for our customers.”
