Flash Networks deploys virtualized optimization into 3 major mobile operators

Flash Networks, a leader in mobile Internet optimization, security and engagement solutions, has announced that it has successfully deployed the fully virtualized vHarmony optimization platform at three major mobile operators, the company said.

The first customer is a major telecoms group that deployed vHarmony seamlessly into the vEPC architecture. The integrated, fully virtualized solution enables flexible, dynamic optimization with no capacity penalty and all the benefits expected from a virtualized solution including: ease-of-deployment, healing, scaling, redundancy and Service Function Chaining (SFC) capabilities.

vHarmony is an ETSI standard, MANO compliant VNF with independent lifecycle management and implementation of Ve-Vnfm-xx interfaces. This compliance enables smooth integration with operator´s selected vEPC vendor and VNF manager. The remaining two operators deployed vHarmony as a vertical virtualized island into their existing mobile core as a significant milestone towards a fully virtualized EPC.

Allaying carrier concerns regarding capacity degradation when migrating from BMT to virtual environment, the Flash Networks vHarmony utilizes enhanced platform awareness and has demonstrated significant improvement in traffic processing when running at virtual environment. vHarmony is deployed as a data-plane VNF and part of a vEPC service chain, seamlessly integrated using service function chaining and dynamic routing capabilities.

The solution has been tested and implemented alongside our NFV/SDN partners such as ZTE, Ericsson, Nokia and Huawei and supports integration with industry stalwarts such as Openstack, OpenDaylight, KVM and VMware.
