One Convergence Network Virtualization and Service Delivery (NVSD) solution takes a policy driven approach and brings in the innovative concept of “Service Overlays” to go along with “Network Overlays” to virtualize networks and services. The solution innovates and extends SDN with Service Overlays for delivering L4 to L7 services with higher-level abstractions that are application friendly. The solution is integrated with OpenStack Neutron and provides a complete networking solution enabling self-service multi-tenant networks and network services to be created, provisioned and managed on demand. The solution can be deployed on legacy/existing network infrastructure or with emerging SDN enabled physical fabrics. One Convergence NVSD solution is targeted at enterprises, cloud service providers and Telecom Service providers.
One Convergence’s Edge Acceleration Platform (EAP) with capabilities to offload and accelerate virtual switching, security/crypto and other data path intensive functions can complement NVSD solution in delivering accelerated network services.
Network Virtualization and Service Delivery Platform
Policy driven network service delivery
Network function virtualization enabling flexible on-demand software based provisioning of L4 to L7 services is emerging as a way forward to replace legacy, fixed and proprietary hardware based provisioning models. Likewise Software-defined networking and virtualization with overlays using open architectures has emerged as an alternative to legacy proprietary hardware centric network approaches. The next step in the evolution is to provide application friendly abstractions that capture the user’s intent for realizing networks and services to enable automation, self-service and agile deployment.
