ADVA Optical Networking’s approach to NFV provides the industry’s smoothest and safest path towards a service-centric network. Essential functions, such as advanced operations, administration and maintenance, bridge the gap between virtual and physical network functions and assure maximum network performance independent of the software appliances running on top. An advanced set of security features respond to the blurring boundaries between customer and operator domains and provide operators and end users with peace of mind. What’s more, ADVA Optical Networking’s NFV strategy is centered on openness. The company’s open architecture is fully standardized and not limited to vendor-specific orchestration solutions.
“We’ve worked closely with the industry and our customers to develop our NFV strategy. It’s this close interworking that has helped us engineer a number of key features that will prove critical,” commented Stephan Rettenberger, VP, marketing, ADVA Optical Networking. “Our customers want complete freedom to allocate servers both at the edge and in the core. And this is exactly what we’re doing. We’re the only vendor in the industry adding the necessary security and optimization features necessary for core hosting. We’re also passionate about openness and are committed to open software in the virtualization layer. We’re opposed to binding customers with proprietary network integration interfaces. No limitations, no imposed restrictions. Just openness. Ultimately, it’s this commitment to openness and flexibility in server location that has driven our entire NFV process.”
