VMware Demonstrates Accelerating Momentum for vCloud NFV at Mobile World Congress
At Mobile World Congress 2016, VMware, Inc., is showcasing the company's momentum in helping communications service providers (CSPs) adopt network functions virtualization (NFV) to deliver the unified, hybrid Telco Cloud. The company has experienced a significant increase in customer deployments and pipeline year over year, as customers accelerate adoption of the company's production-proven VMware vCloud NFV platform.

New VMware vCloud NFV Customers

VMware and its partners are helping service provider customers transform their businesses with NFV that helps them lower costs considerably and enables rapid and agile service innovation. New vCloud NFV customers include:

  • MetTel , a leading communications solutions provider for enterprise businesses deployed VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN running on VMware's network functions virtualization infrastructure (NFVI).
  • Transatel , a leading enabler in MVNO and IoT, has deployed Affirmed Network's Mobile Content CloudTM on VMware's network functions virtualization infrastructure. The combined solution underlies Transatel's upcoming commercial launch of an embedded connectivity service for laptops and tablets in the United States. Transatel previously deployed Affirmed's virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) on VMware NFVi to deliver services to European Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) customers.

Simplifying and Automating Telco Cloud Operations Management

New VMware vRealize management packs provide the proactive intelligence and visibility required to meet Quality of Service and Quality of Experience service levels in a dynamic telco cloud environment.

  • Blue Medora vRealize Operations Management Pack for KVM - enables CSPs to gain comprehensive visibility and insights into the performance, capacity, and health of KVM workloads. This pack is generally available today.
  • VMware Management Pack for Network Devices - extends the operational management capabilities of the vRealize Operations core product to physical data center networking. This pack is generally available today.
  • VMware Management Pack for NSX for vSphere 3.0 - provides comprehensive visibility of the virtual and physical network via the integration of the VMware NSX for vSphere and Network Devices Management Pack. This back is generally available today.
  • VMware Management Pack for OpenStack 2 - will provide out of the box dashboards, reports, inventory views, and alerts complete with remediation actions for OpenStack environments. The management pack will work with VMware's Integrated OpenStack distribution as well as any other OpenStack cloud based on the OpenStack Kilo release. This pack will be available in Q2 2016.

New VMware Ready NFV Certified Partners

VMware Ready NFV allows partners to certify their virtual network functions (VNFs) for compatibility with VMware NFV infrastructure. The VMware Ready certification provides CSPs with the confidence that NFV solutions will deploy, run and interoperate with vCloud NFV.
