Layer123: BT and ADVA Demo Backhaul Intensive CCTV Surveillance with NFV

At this week's SDN & OpenFlow World Congress in Düsseldorf, Germany, ADVA Optical Networking and At this week's SDN & OpenFlow World Congress in Düsseldorf, Germany, ADVA Optical Networking and BT are conducting a demonstration of managed services built upon network functions virtualization (NFV). 
The demo focusses on CCTV-based video surveillance and shows how backhaul-intensive applications such as this are currently limited by the need to centrally process enormous amounts of data. ADVA Optical Networking’s new FSP 150 ProVM, with its built-in server, underlines how these applications can use NFV at the network’s edge to decentralize processes and drastically improve application performance. The video surveillance application is supplied by ADVA Optical Networking’s partner – Alchera Technologies.

“NFV is radically altering the technology landscape. It’s presenting significant opportunities to develop new services and help enterprises take the next step in simplifying their IT operations,” said Peter Willis, chief researcher, data networks, BT. “With ADVA Optical Networking, we’re showing how simple and effective it is to decentralize services and push functionality to the edge of the network. Our video-surveillance demonstration clearly highlights the many efficiencies and enhancements that can be gained. The key to achieving this is the ADVA FSP 150 ProVM. This new technology enables us to add applications directly at the edge of the network in the demarcation device. The potential here is enormous.”
