Sparkle, the International Services arm of TIM Group and among the top ten global operators, and Amartus, an independent software consultancy firm, have announced the details of its joint multi-vendor Software Defined-Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) service proof-of-concept (PoC), the company said.
The PoC is focused on developing a foundation for the next generation SD-WAN-enabled services that are technology and vendor agnostic and provide customers with a multi-vendor, orchestrated SD-WAN solution, fully compliant with MEF framework and technical specifications.
The goal of the PoC is to introduce the possibility of a cost-effective multi-vendor SD-WAN enabled service through the use of MEF Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) Presto and a Docker-based containerized Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) that provides a cost-effective and flexible foundation for supporting vendor-agnostic, multi-vendor services.
Sparkle will contribute with its global network and multi-vendor experience while Amartus contributes with its innovation and expertise in the development and integration of network transformation software solutions.
Sparkle is TIM Group´s fully owned Global Operator and among the top #10 international service providers worldwide, with a proprietary backbone of around 530,000 km of fiber spanning from Europe to Africa, the Americas and Asia. Find out more about Sparkle at tisparkle.com.
