Virtualized PoPs: From Concept to Reality

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta virtualization White papers Interconnect

Wholesale carriers are now under constant pressure to reduce cost, improve quality, flexibility, efficiency and global reach, all this while increasing speed of innovation. Not a small order. Virtualization and automation are two of the tools that are now available to carriers to enable a complete shift in their network deployment and operation, which should enable them to better compete with the new breed of telecom service providers.

This white paper provides the background on those technology and business changes and offers an insight into why wholesale carriers need to be reacting now to this latest opportunity before it becomes a threat to their livelihood.

Session visibility in a virtualized world

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

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.

Perimeta SBC: Virtualize datasheet

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) virtualization Datasheets Interconnect

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.
