Tail-f

With increased network costs and increased competition, operators are pressured to introduce new services quickly, yet bloated OSS infrastructures stand in the way. Service providers need to replace the OSS layer with something more agile. Network Service Orchestration achieves this by decoupling network services from network components, while automatically configuring the network according to service specifications.

Adding new services and devices becomes easier, faster and doesn't require custom code. Tail-f is a leader in the Network Service Orchestration space with solutions equally applicable for today's layer 2/3 VPNs and layer 4-7 service chains as for tomorrow's NFV and SDN networks.

Tail-f also enables Network Equipment Providers a powerful solution for building on-device management systems for all kinds of networking equipment. Tail-f's customers use Tail-f's ConfD product to build carrier-grade applications in less time and with less risk and is the only product that renders all critical northbound interfaces (NETCONF, CLI, SNMP and Web UI) from a single data model. This enables ISV the fastest way to NFV and SDN readiness.

SERVICES

NCS

NCS Tail-f Network Control System (NCS) provides a single network-wide interface to all network devices and all network applications and services, as well as a common modeling language and datastore for both services and devices. A transaction engine handles transactions from the operations at the service layer to the actual deployment of configuration changes in the network.

Designed to be a generic solution, NCS supports the implementation of network applications and service on a wide variety of networking devices, both traditional hardware-based devices and virtual software appliances.

ConfD

ConfD Tail-f also enables Network Equipment Providers a powerful solution for building on-device management systems for all kinds of networking equipment. Tail-f's customers use Tail-f's ConfD product to build carrier-grade applications in less time and with less risk and is the only product that renders all critical northbound interfaces (NETCONF, CLI, SNMP and Web UI) from a single data model. This enables ISV the fastest way to NFV and SDN readiness.
