Demands of the customer are growing and NFV will enable subscriber retention and increase sources of revenue. Virtualizing a mobile network with the Red Hat and Affirmed Networks vEPC solution allows Service Providers to rapidly deploy mobile services, regardless of vendor, using an economical general-purpose infrastructure. A unified management framework simplifies administration.
An open, interoperable foundation lets Service Providers customize their mobile network infrastructure with a large selection of third-party hardware and software. As the mobile business grows, Operators can easily scale their virtual infrastructure to support hundreds of millions of subscribers.
Based on Red Hat’s enterprise-grade, open technologies and Intel’s high-performance processors and network adapters, the Red Hat and Intel NFV infrastructure forms the cost-effective, open, scalable foundation of the vEPC solution. Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides a high-performance operating environment for the Affirmed Mobile Content Cloud. Red Hat Enterprise Linux Open Stack Platform orchestrates virtual resources throughout the solution.
The Affirmed Mobile Content Cloud, a full virtualized EPC, provides a flexible, virtual architecture for deploying mobile services. The integrated Affirmed Open WorkflowTM technology lets operators service chain functions to create automated workflows for streamlined operations. The system allows operators to develop, provision, and launch new mobile services quickly. Dynamic load balancing across the entire mobile network increases efficiency and reliability.
The best partnerships aren’t dependent on a mere common goal but on a shared path of equality, passion and a desire to deliver value to their customers. Red Hat and Affirmed Networks define this partnership.
