RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. -- Overture today announced the availability of its Ensemble Service Orchestrator (ESO) and Ensemble Network Controller (ENC), two key pieces of its open architecture for software-defined services at the metro service edge. Ensemble OSA is the industry’s first complete and open platform for service automation and network functions virtualization (NFV) that is built specifically for the service provider metro edge.

"Communication Service Providers (CSPs) and vendors alike are embracing NFV. And, while there have been many vendors announcing their strategies, Overture has already delivered one of the first commercial NFV solutions to market" said Nav Chander, Research Manager, IDC Telecom Networks & Services. “They have a comprehensive working solution, which I have seen. It is impressive and has been well received by a number of Tier 1 service providers."

Leveraging open APIs for deployment into any service provider architecture, Ensemble Service Orchestrator and Ensemble Network Controller may be deployed together as a system or integrated independently.

  • The Ensemble Service Orchestrator is an open, extensible carrier-class NFV service lifecycle management and orchestration system that coordinates virtual resources and physical network elements to create, activate and assure services using one or more virtual network functions. ESO uses the OpenStack cloud controller – bundled with ESO – to manage the virtual compute environment, including virtual machines, virtual switches and top-of-rack datacenter switches. For management of the physical wide area network traffic flows, ESO leverages Overture’s Ensemble Network Controller but can also be integrated with other third-party network controllers.
  • The Ensemble Network Controller is a service-aware network controller and management system for the Carrier Ethernet metro service edge. With native support for all Overture network elements, ENC is extensible to support third-party network elements and automates service creation, service activation, device detection, fault management and performance monitoring. By presenting a complete network picture, ENC helps service providers add new services and virtualized network functions without compromising existing network operations.
