What if you could assure virtual
and physical network functions
side by side?
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)—whether in the core, at customer premise, in the radio access network, or elsewhere—promises significant capex and opex savings, as well as unparalleled service agility and elasticity. It also poses several operations challenges for service providers: additional data silos; operational complexities; new standards; and a learning ramp for NFV-specific operational tools.
CENX enables service providers to achieve the promised benefits of NFV and avoid the increased risk, cost, and operational challenges with real-world, real-time solutions for NFV (even when they’re virtual). CENX’s data and visualization, real-time operations, and closed-loop automation capacities enable service providers to take full advantage of NFV in the core, at the provider edge, and at customer edge across a wide range of use cases.
CENX interoperates with multiple NFV orchestrators, virtual infrastructures managers (VIMS), such as OpenStack,
VMWare, and RedHat, virtual network function managers (VNFMs), virtualized network functions (VNFs).
Virtual Customer Premise Equipment (vCPE)
Reduce Mean Time to Repair (MTTR) and truck rolls for upgrades by replacing aging customer premise equipment (CPE) with virtualized network functions (VNFs). Use CENX to assure your customer’s quality of experience (QoE).
Value-added Services for Enterprises
Leverage your vCPE deployments to rapidly deploy firewalls, load balancing, virus protection, IP-PBX solutions, and other value-added services to customers. Enable faster service delivery and assured service quality with CENX.
VNF Service Chains
Improve elasticity, decouple function from topology, create overlays and underlays for transport, and assure service quality across the entire service chain with CENX.
Virtual Core Solutions
Improve average revenue per user (ARPU), and reduce opex and capex with virtualized routers, virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC), virtual Package Gateways (vPGWs) and virtual Evolved Packet Data Gateways (vEPDGs), and other core network functions. Guarantee the highest quality of service across them all with CENX.
Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Voice over WiFi (VoWifi) through vEPC Infrastructure
Leverage your vEPC and Carrier WiFi access points to deliver VoLTE and VoWiFi. Use CENX to assure high voice quality—any access, always assured!
Virtualization at the Provider Edge
Provide scalable, elastic Ethernet Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), L3-VPNs, Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS), Content Deliver Networks (CDNs), and other services to customers. Assure high service QoE with CENX.
Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN) and Virtual Radio Access Network (vRAN)
Increase uplink capacity with C-RAN. Reduce costs with virtual Base Band Units (vBBUs). Reimagine your mobile telephone switching office (MTSO) as a datacenter. Whatever the infrastructure, assure your data services in a single pane of glass with CENX.
NFV and Internet of Things (IoT)
IoT devices, platforms, and services are rapidly becoming ubiquitous. Assure end-to-end service QoE, and enable a closed loop between service KPIs and fulfillment with CENX’s automation capabilities.
