Layer123: Telstra, HP, F5 Networks and Nuage Demo ETSI NFV

Telstra, HP, F5 Networks and Nuage Networks demonstrated a Networks Functions Virtualization (NFV) proof of concept (PoC) solution that has been certified by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) at this week's SDN & OpenFlow World Congress in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The ETSI PoC #38 showcases:

  • Full ISO 7-layer stack fulfillment, activation and orchestration of virtual network functions in carrier networks.
  • How NFV and SDN technologies can be complimentary in providing compelling value proposition to the carriers to be able to deploy services faster and also to be able scale capacity elastically on demand.
  • 18 specific use cases highlighting the advantages of deploying F5 virtualized network functions in a multi-vendor environment.
  • Integration of F5 BIG-IP technologies with HP NFV Director and HP Helion CloudSystem for the comprehensive end-to-end lifecycle management of virtualized network functions, including VNF instantiation, provisioning, orchestration and service assurance.
  • Integration of F5 virtualized network functions with Nuage Networks Virtual Services Platform (VSP) to enable service insertion and traffic toward the appropriate services independent of their location. VSP ensures data paths between VNFs have consistent communications and security policy enforcement throughout the infrastructure.


“Telstra has a strong working relationship with HP and other organizations, with the goal of furthering our NFV strategies and programs through proof of concepts and field trials. Partnering with multiple vendors helps us to deliver impactful virtualization and orchestration capabilities within a flexible architectural framework. As service providers look to build seamless Application Delivery Networks, vendors that have qualified their technologies with the industry’s standardization groups are seen as more attractive to customers.” – David Robertson, Director, Transport & Routing Engineering, Networks, Telstra Operations
