SDN/NFV Solutions

Existing network solutions are based on proprietary hardware appliances that slow down the service providers in rolling out new services due to the high procure-design-integrate-deploy cycle time compounded with additional investment costs, increasing energy costs and shorter hardware shelf life. The industry is betting on Network Function Virtualization (NFV) to find a solution to this age old problem. Over the past year Software Defined Networking (SDN) is gaining prominence which enables applications to have real-time visibility into the network and applications being able to program the network on-demand and thereby helping create application focussed infrastructure.

Going forward service providers are considering deployment of these solutions based on SDN/NFV that enables them with immediate revenue opportunities and makes their business more agile due to reduced CAPEX/OPEX, faster time to market, better resource utilization, flexible network management, and multi-tenancy support. However the transition to a virtualized environment using SDN and NFV has to happen in a phased manner with the need to co-exist with the current network solutions based on proprietary hardware appliances.

Currently Wipro's SDN/NFV solution reference Framework comprise the following:-

Wipro Cloud Enabled Test Simulator (WIP-CETS) Wipro vEPC
Wipro Cloud Enabled Test Simulator (WIP-CETS)

The Wipro CETS is a test framework to test VNFs and VNFMs in a real Telco cloud environment by generating all possible VNF life cycle events defined in ETSI NFV standards. CETS also supports NFVI platform readiness testing to host VNF workloads. This comprehensive test framework facilitates high level of test automation and addresses Telco's concern for Performance, Orchestration, Elasticity, Resiliency, Service Continuity, and Energy Efficiency of Telco cloud deployments.
