Ekinops is a leading provider of open and fully interoperable Layer 1, 2 and 3 solutions to service providers around the world. Our programmable and highly scalable solutions enable the fast, flexible and cost-effective deployment of new services for both high-speed, high-capacity optical transport networks and virtualization-enabled managed enterprise services.
Ekinops provides all needed elements to enable service providers and large network providers to deploy NFV (Network Function Virtualization) today. The Ekinops solution ecosystem include the Intel based uCPE hardware, the hypervisor, a rich catalog of ENFs (Embedded Network Functions) and VNFs (Virtual Network Functions), and a turnkey Network Operation environment.Open System
All elements making up the Ekinops virtualization solution follow and open and highly interoperable approach, including open standards and ensure no vendor lock-in. It effectively allows the integration on different uCPE hardware platforms, the onboarding of any VNF (Virtual Network Function), or the management from already available OSS/BSS or Orchestration systems.Trusted Supplier
28 of the top 100 service providers in the world have already chosen Ekinops to enhance their competitive edge in delivering managed services to their SMB and enterprise customers. With Ekinops, service providers can maximize cost savings, deliver market innovation and accelerate time-to-market.Future Proof and Smooth Migration
As service providers embrace SDN and NFV deployment models, Ekinops enables future-proofed deployment today, enabling operators to seamlessly migrate to an open, virtualized delivery model at a time of their choosing.As Ekinops is also having a long history on the delivery of physical networking equipment and technology, the migration to a virtual solution can be smooth and provide the performance and features required from day 1, including SD-WAN.
The OneAccess OVP series provides uCPE whitebox x86 hardware as part of Ekinops' strategy to provide service providers a solution to more open and programmable network solutions and services. Apart from its own uCPE white boxes, Ekinops also support third-party x86 based white boxes.Compose OneOS6-LIM
The Compose OneOS6-Lim hypervisor creates a virtualized compute environment on a uCPE to run local virtualized network functions (VNFs) at the customer premises. Based on standard protocols and open data models, it provides the software components for hosting, chaining and managing both OneAccess and third-party VNFs.Open Ecosystem
Ekinops supports a large ecosystem of third-party VNFs and third-party uCPE white boxes based on Intel x86 architectures. Ekinops offers its validation services to guarantee support fully disaggregated solutions, and taking advantage of acceleration the acceleration mechanisms available on the platform, including DPDK, SR-IOV and PCI passthrough.Turnkey Virtualization Solution
This solution enables Service Providers to offer network services to their enterprise customers in a fully programmable and customized way. All functions in the OVP are configurable through a unified Netconf management interface under control of any Netconf-enabled Service Orchestrator. In addition Ekinops offers a full turnkey management solution, including Zero Touch Provisioning, and network service design tools.
OneOS6-LIM is the hypervisor providing virtualization capabilities for hosting VNFs and deploying Virtual Network Services on a uCPE.
Deployed at the customer premises, The Ekinops OVP (Open Virtual Platform) is a carrier-grade series of uCPE providing the flexibility to create and deploy new and customized virtualized services on demand.
When you ask most people what NFV means to them, service agility and time-to-revenue are the two most frequently cited answers. These are indeed two of the main end-goals of NFV but on their own they miss a vital and enabling aim: how operators and other communication service providers should go about achieving these benefits. In other words, how can they achieve the operational flexibility that is required in order to successfully undertake and complete the process of migrating network services to a virtualized operational model in a non-disruptive manner.
