Author: Vicki Araujo, Director of Partner Marketing, HPE Network Functions Virtualization

Our OpenNFV partner ecosystem is growing rapidly. So much so, we recently announced the OpenNFV Solution Portal in order to make it fast and easy for our customers to search for the pre-validated VNF that best meets their needs. The portal has been so well received, we’re taking it, and several of our partners to MWC in Barcelona. 

We cordially invite you to come visit our HPE Partner Showcase at Mobile World Congress Booth 5F31, Hall 5 to see our expansive, open ecosystem of partners and their VNFs in action. In the showcase, you’ll explore our OpenNFV Solution Portal – over 60 application partners are testing their VNFs in our five worldwide labs – and experience 15 partner solution demonstrations. 

Here is a sneak peek of what you’ll see:


Affirmed Networks, Inc. develops new technologies for the wireless industry. Affirmed provides a smarter path to network transformation by adding scale and new capabilities while reducing complexity and cost. HPE and Affirmed Networks are presenting a turnkey NFV solution featuring a fully virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) leveraging HPE’s carrier-grade Helion Platform. The demonstration will also highlight the integration carrier-grade vEPC build on top of production ready DPDK accelerated virtual switch technology, OpenStack orchestration, and other value added services.

“Virtualization and cloud technologies have revolutionized the way service providers view their networks. Cost and efficiency are surely part of the equation, but service providers truly benefit from initiatives like the HPE OpenNFV program that support Affirmed Networks’ rapid creation and launch of innovative, customized, revenue-generating services." – Angela Singhal Whiteford, Vice President, Marketing and Product Management, Affirmed Networks
