RADCOM Joins Global Community of Service Providers and Vendors to Advance Adoption of NFV
Nov 28, 2016
TEL AVIV, Israel – November 28, 2016 − RADCOM Ltd. (NASDAQ: RDCM), today announced that it has joined the Open Source MANO (OSM) community, which is focused on delivering an open source Management and Orchestration (MANO) stack aligned with ETSI Information Models to advance the adoption of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). OSM is a Service Provider led community that includes; Telefónica, Bell Mobility, British Telecom, PT Portugal SGPS SA, SK Telecom, Sprint and Telenor.
“RADCOM is excited to be part of a community that is collaborating to enable the transformation to virtualized networks,” said Mr. Tomer Ilan, RADCOM’s Senior Director of Product Management. “Providing an open source MANO will accelerate this transformation as it creates an open, standards-based orchestration environment that covers both Resource and Service Orchestration to allow automated deployment and interconnection of all components, both for NFV network scenarios and the management of Network Service lifecycles; delivering network automation, service agility and significant OPEX and CAPEX savings.”
As a leading NFV service assurance vendor, RADCOM is engaged with the community to improve service assurance orchestration by embedding this functionality into OSM. This tight assimilation between MANO and service assurance opens a whole new level of automation and agility:
- On-demand probing so that a virtual probe will be automatically deployed and configured when a new service is launched or a new network element added
- Horizontal and vertical scaling so that when network traffic fluctuates, additional resources or virtual probes can be added or deducted as and when needed; all without human intervention.
Tight integration of the service assurance stack under OSM, will also allow a Service Provider to monitor customer experience and service performance whatever the traffic load, while also maintaining efficient use of resources and delivering a more agile network.
By developing a common information model to describe the network services that can be deployed, the OSM community will create a standard for the automated deployment and the management of network service lifecycles so Service Providers can focus on delivering agile and cost efficient services across their NFV network.
