Affirmed Networks, HP to deliver OpenStack service platform for mobile networks

Affirmed Networks said it has collaborated with HP to deliver a “carrier grade” OpenStack NFV service platform for mobile networks.

The platform, which combines Affirmed Networks best-in-class NFV mobile packet core solution, and HP´s optimized OpenStack solution, provides Communications Services Providers (CSPs) with the flexibility, reliability and scalability needed to support the deployment of 4G and 5G services. The combined solution has strong traction with “Tier One” operators worldwide.

As operators worldwide continue to move toward virtualized architectures, this solution will support this shift, significantly accelerating the design, trial and deployment of NFV-based services.

Affirmed Networks has achieved significant attention as its Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solution has become the standard for the world´s top mobile operators. Currently, the company has been deployed commercially, including in Tier 1 and Tier 2 mobile networks, and is engaged in many trials worldwide.
