AUSTIN, Texas -- Big Communications Event -- One of the indisputable stars at this year's Big Communications Event (BCE) in Austin was the New IP Agency's Live NFV Interoperability Demos, which drew standing room only crowds to the busy exhibition floor.
In conjunction with test partner EANTC, the demo included products from 12 vendors and showcased service function chaining (SFC) and network service orchestration (NSO), with a functional focus on virtual consumer premises equipment (vCPE) as part of a realistic, neutral set of test cases based on three vital factors: public standards, open source community developments and market feedback.
Participants included: Adtran Inc. (Nasdaq: ADTN); ADVA Optical Networking (Frankfurt: ADV) ; Allot Ltd. (Nasdaq: ALLT); Ciena Corp. (NYSE: CIEN); Cisco Systems Inc.
