“Telco-grade” in the cloud: deploying reliable VoIP in NFV environments

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) Cloud White papers Consumer communications high availability (HA)

Nov 24, 2015 8:10:26 AM

Network operators want to take advantage of the flexibility, cost savings and increased agility that Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) offers them. However, they still need to provide traditional “telco-grade” services, including offering their end-users SLAs of five-nines availability or higher with strict call cutoff targets. Providing telco-grade services in the cloud presents a technical challenge but is achievable.

In this white paper, we examine the issues involved and show how network operators can achieve these goals.

Session visibility in a virtualized world

NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) virtualization Service Assurance Server White papers

Nov 3, 2015 6:41:09 AM

Network operators must be able to diagnose and troubleshoot problems as they arise in the network. When there are problems, they need to be able to get to the heart of them quickly and efficiently. They need to reliably determine its root cause and address it, fast. Every second of delay could be hundreds of annoyed customers or thousands of dollars of lost revenue as peers route their calls elsewhere, and perhaps don’t come back. As network operators leverage Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) to rapidly roll out new services, increase service flexibility, reduce capital and operational expenditures, and become more agile, Service Assurance (SA) has struggled to keep pace. Part of SA’s struggle stems from the challenge of maintaining continuous SIP session visibility both within a virtual infrastructure as well as across hybrid physical/virtual environments.
