What is Ensemble?
Freedom to innovate
Our Ensemble product family is a truly open virtualization suite, providing powerful carrier-class orchestration, virtual network functions (VNFs) hosting, management and automation tools. It reduces cost and complexity through intuitive, intelligent and automated tools. With Ensemble, communication service providers (CSPs) can replace closed appliances with software hosted anywhere in the network. It empowers them to increase capacity or add new capabilities in real time without investing in infrastructure or dispatching technicians. Ensemble also delivers multi-Gbit/s performance while maintaining low latency and jitter. What’s more, it frees CSPs from vendor lock-in and gives them access to an industry-leading ecosystem of partner technologies for a wide variety of popular NFV use cases.
Our Ensemble range creates a truly open architecture for network functions virtualization (NFV). It offers complete freedom of choice in terms of hardware, software and deployment location. Our Ensemble Harmony Ecosystem is an unrivalled selection of hardware, software, and services partners all focused on accelerating automation and virtualization at the metro service edge. With the widest array of onboarded VNFs, CSPS can select best-in-class applications and easily upgrade to the latest technologies. Our Ensemble product suite features Ensemble Connector, the virtual switch that outperforms Open vSwitch, as well as Ensemble Orchestrator, the powerful ETSI MANO-compliant NFV orchestration solution. Already deployed in several major networks, Ensemble is right now delivering new levels of efficiency and agility, and opening new revenue streams.
Now CSPs can react more rapidly to market trends, more effectively meet user demands, and more efficiently deliver new services and applications.
Following a recent upgrade, our Ensemble product suite is now optimized for telco-scale virtualization. A range of new features enables CSPs to scale OpenStack and deliver software-based SD-WAN on cloud-native platforms. It’s also the ideal solution for the deployment of universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) and is being leveraged in Verizon’s new uCPE offering. The demand to move from hardware-based services to software-based, cloud-enabled solutions is growing by the day and is only going to accelerate. Our Ensemble product suite is an important enabling opportunity for service providers looking to bring these solutions to market. Now CSPs can react more rapidly to market trends, more effectively meet user demands, and more efficiently deliver new services and applications.
