WATERLOO, On. -- Sandvine (TSX: SVC), a leading provider of intelligent broadband and network solutions for fixed and mobile operators, today announced that the Sandvine Virtual Series, the fully virtualized version of the Sandvine platform, is currently being used by multiple leading communications service providers (CSPs) around the globe in order to develop, test and deploy their virtualization strategies.
The Sandvine Virtual Series enables CSPs to enjoy all the features of the traditional Sandvine platform while benefiting from the elasticity and efficiency of running virtual machines on commercial off-the-shelf hardware (COTS).
The Sandvine Virtual Series also provides hassle-free integration with standard SDN and NFV architectures:
Fully virtualized and interoperable with OpenStack
Proven integration with industry leading virtual platforms, including Juniper’s Contrail
Partnerships and program membership with other leading companies, including: Intel Network Builders, Alcatel-Lucent CloudBand, RedHat OpenStack Marketplace, and Dell
Sandvine’s work with leading operators underscores the importance of turning real technology and thought leadership into action. Sandvine is the only network policy control vendor that can claim a number of firsts, including:
First to express a position on SDN and NFV
First to provide a demonstration of virtualized network policy control in action
First to complete virtualization of its entire platform
First to power a commercial offering (at ClearSky Technologies)
A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
