Affirmed Networks Accelerates Time-to-Market with HP


Two of the hottest trends in the networking industry are software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV). These emerging technologies will fundamentally transform the way communications service providers, cloud providers, content providers and enterprises build out and operate their networks. Going forward monolithic network architectures based on proprietary hardware, will give way to software-centric, open network architectures. Next-generation networks are programmable, more agile, and better suited for delivering on-demand applications and responding to elastic service demands.

HP technology platforms are a perfect fit for OEMs developing SDN and NFV solutions for the enterprise or service provider markets. From industry-standard servers that support higher core counts and greater VM densities, to software-based SDN controllers, SDN-ready switches, and software-defined storage systems, HP’s highly scalable and flexible technology platforms are ideal for building next-generation networking solutions. HP OEM partner Affirmed Networks serves as a great example.

Affirmed is a leading-edge provider of SDN and NFV solutions for mobile communications service providers. The Affirmed Mobile Content Cloud™ is an advanced, NFV/SDN solution that leverages HP BladeSystem c7000 enclosures, server blades, storage blades and OneView unified management.


Unified technology eliminates cost and complexity

HP’s tightly integrated solution helped Affirmed get to market quickly and cost-effectively. By leveraging a single supplier with a unified product family, Affirmed was able to streamline integration and certification efforts, reduce risks, and simplify logistics and vendor management. Better still, Affirmed engineers are able to stay focused on core development work and value-added capabilities, rather than underlying technology.

Affirmed’s mobile operator customers are able to reduce OPEX and improve service agility by consolidating and virtualizing compute, storage and networking resources, and by unifying administrative tasks. The Affirmed Mobile Content Cloud lets mobile service providers launch and monetize premium services like adaptive streaming and high-definition video conferencing––quickly and profitably.
