Radcom achieves Telefonica UNICA certification
May 21, 2018
TEL AVIV, Israel – May 21, 2018, − RADCOM Ltd. (NASDAQ: RDCM), today announced that RADCOM Service Assurance (MaveriQ) has been certified to run as a Virtual Network Function (VNF) in Telefonica’s UNICA platform. RADCOM Service Assurance (MaveriQ) passed both functional, and performance testing with zero drops of packets and is now part of Telefonica’s UNICA VNF catalog enabling full-service assurance lifecycle management using UNICA’s cloud orchestrator.
"RADCOM is leading the NFV service assurance market, and we are thrilled to be working together, utilizing their virtualization expertise and certifying RADCOM Service Assurance (MaveriQ) on Telefonica’s UNICA platform," said Antonio Elizondo, Telefonica’s Head of Network Virtualization Strategy. “During the intensive testing process, RADCOM’s solution demonstrated both functional and high-performance capabilities with zero loss of data. RADCOM’s solution architecture is cloud-native which allows seamless integration into ETSI-compliant NFV Management and Orchestration (MANO) platforms such as UNICA. This integration enables RADCOM Service Assurance (MaveriQ) to automatically monitor a new service or a new network element as soon as it is launched and maintain a high customer experience.”
"With Telefonica being an important strategic customer, we are excited to have passed certification on their UNICA platform," said Rami Amit, RADCOM’s Chief Technology Officer and Head of Product. “Telefonica has ambitious plans to virtualize their entire network to support any service and application being deployed as a VNF. A critical function in the UNICA platform will be probe-based service assurance that will be integrated across the network and managed dynamically by the UNICA cloud orchestrator to ensure end-to-end service quality and maintain customer experience. We look forward to our continued work with Telefonica as they build their next-generation network infrastructure and expand the UNICA platform into additional regions such as LATAM where RADCOM is already installed and works in collaboration with Telefonica.”
Tight integration between RADCOM Service Assurance (MaveriQ) and Telefonica’s UNICA platform will enable real-time updates between the orchestration and service assurance layer, so RADCOM Service Assurance (MaveriQ) dynamically scales to manage network resources efficiently and maintain the assurance functionally whatever the traffic load. If issues are discovered RADCOM Service Assurance (MaveriQ) provides feedback to the orchestration so they can be rectified before affecting the customer experience. With service assurance and orchestration continually synchronizing, time to resolution is reduced, preventing service level degradation and maintaining a high-quality customer experience.
RADCOM continues working within the Open Source MANO (OSM) community on a common way of modeling VNFs so that they can quickly and automatically be imported into an operator’s NFV environment. As a Telefonica led initiative and an active developer of OSM, RADCOM is well-positioned to ensure RADCOM Service Assurance (MaveriQ) is well assimilated into UNICA and is compatible with OSM common models as the OSM capabilities are incorporated into UNICA.
