The Ensemble Harmony Ecosystem offers unparalleled variety and choice. The truth is, no other program in the industry even comes close.
The Ensemble Harmony Ecosystem enables more than 30 partners to collaborate and advance NFV-based innovation. With its additional members, it now delivers even more value to CSPs as it accelerates their automation and virtualization initiatives. The program features the industry’s most comprehensive NFV offering with 14 categories of VNFs, giving CSPs complete freedom of choice for software, hardware and deployment location. Several new members are currently working with ADVA Optical Networking on proofs of concept and field trials in live customer networks. The partner ecosystem is the latest example of how ADVA Optical Networking’s Ensemble Division is leading the NFV field. While others are yet to deploy, operators like Masergy and DartPoints are already using ADVA Ensemble technology to deliver efficient and agile software-based services.
