NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) Case studies Clearwater Core Consumer communications

Located in the Irish Sea, midway between Great Britain and Ireland, the Isle of Man is on a mission. With the exception of the annual Tourist Trophy (TT) races that draw over 40 thousand people over a 2-week period, a slow decline in the historically important tourist industry meant the Island had to reinvent itself. It needed a new model.

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

NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) Cloud White papers Consumer communications high availability (HA)

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.

Perimeta SBC: Analyze datasheet

SBC (Session Border Controller) Analytics Perimeta Datasheets SIP trunking Network interconnect VoLTE Consumer communications Business communications Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi)

Perimeta’s network analytics is a key differentiator when compared to other platforms. Its analytics are fundamentally different, because they tell you why things happen. As Perimeta’s analytics are built into the SBC, you have automatic access to all signaling, even within virtualized datacenters where there are no obvious wires for probes to tap into. The time to simplify network diagnostics and troubleshooting is now. You need network diagnostics and troubleshooting capable of operating in a NFV environment today, before the industry as a whole finishes its move towards pure software implementations of network functions.

Perimeta is the future-proof SBC of choice as it enables Service Providers to migrate from the current hardware intensive architecture to the new telco software architecture. At its heart, Perimeta running on virtualized platforms is the same Perimeta software that runs inside our ATCA appliances and on COTS servers. Metaswitch’s Perimeta is the industry’s most advanced SBC platform. It enables a step by step transition to virtualization, using COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) server platforms (Dell, Cisco, HP, etc.) to start with, then migrates to virtualized Perimeta without MANO (Management and Orchestration), and finally upgrades to full blown cloud architecture with MANO.

"Session Border Control in Access and Interconnect Networks" white paper

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta SIP trunking Network interconnect VoLTE Consumer communications Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) Voice, video and messaging

Session Border Controllers (SBCs) are playing an increasingly critical role in two key areas of emerging next generation carrier networks. Access SBCs and Interconnect SBCs both manage and secure signaling and media functions in next generation architectures, such as those defined by the 3GPP LTE Advanced standards, but they have distinctly different responsibilities. The Perimeta portfolio of Session Border Controllers, from Metaswitch, is uniquely designed to meet these diverse requirements.
