Cellwize, the innovative Self-Organizing Network (SON) solutions provider, has joined the HP OpenNFV Application Partner Program to further support Network Function Virtualization (NFV).
HP’s initiative to build a comprehensive NFV platform, which enables the telecom industry to accelerate the development and delivery of new and innovative services through the virtualization of core networks and network functions, will now include Cellwize’s centralized-SON (C-SON) solutions, elastic-SON® through its SONCloud™ architecture.
With Cellwize’s participation in the HP OpenNFV Partner Program, customers are able to maximize the SONCloud architecture for quick deployment of elastic-SON, supporting multiple-tenant and instance scenarios. Cellwize customers are already benefiting from a reduction in OPEX, accelerated time-to-market, higher service agility, and the ability to scale up or down to address volatility and peaks in demand.
“NFV is a key technology for mobile network service providers, since it makes it faster and easier for them to introduce and rollout new services without being tied to physical and proprietary hardware,” said Ofir Zemer, CEO of Cellwize. “Now, with the addition of our SONCloud architecture in HP’s OpenNFV Application Program, we can quickly broaden and strengthen our SON offering to offer a comprehensive carrier-grade SON solution over NFV. This cutting edge capability is essential with the growing demand for massive LTE rollouts, network modernization and network sharing projects.”
“The HP OpenNFV Partner Program provides an open, proven and innovative NFV environment for multi-vendor collaboration and exchange between all contributors in the value chain,” said Werner Schaefer, vice president, Network Functions Virtualization, HP. “NFV combined with SONCloud will provide considerable OPEX savings for mobile network service providers and further simplify network management. We are pleased to add Cellwize SON solutions to our application portfolio”.
