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:

Stop by HPE’s Open NFV Pavilion or Brocade’s hospitality suite to see a live demo and talk to subject matter experts to see how Brocade, HPE, Intel, and Wind River are joining forces to enable Telcos and CSPs to better meet the needs of their customers. As the Mobile and Service Provider market becomes increasingly more competitive, telcos and CSPs are looking for new ways to improve their ability to meet customers’ on-demand requirements for new services.  Technologies which are scalable, agile, and affordable are garnering more and more attention in the market.  At the forefront of this technology search are new platforms which take the place of legacy customer premises equipment (CPE).  Stop by HPE’s Open NFV Pavilion or Brocade’s hospitality suite to see a live demo and talk to subject matter experts to see how Brocade, HPE, Intel, and Wind River are joining forces to enable Telcos and CSPs to better meet the needs of their customers.


“HPE’s OpenNFV lab is an open environment that allows technology vendors to collaborate on innovations and integration to help communications service providers advance their NFV initiatives,” said Michael Bushong, vice president of product management, Software Networking, Brocade. “As an active participant in the OpenNFV program, Brocade continues to contribute its expertise in virtual routing, VPN and application delivery technologies to ensure interoperability and deliver high performance virtual network functions.”



In partnership with HPE, Riverbed will demonstrate its industry-leading WAN optimization solution, Riverbed SteelHead, accelerating key business applications such as Microsoft Office 365. Using a deployment that includes a SteelHead for KVM combined with SteelHead SaaS, Riverbed will show how SteelHead can dramatically improve the network performance of cloud-based applications thereby ensuring the best end user experience regardless of user location.



Visibility into customer experience starts with collecting and analyzing actual subscriber experience data. Virtualized environments present new challenges to effectively capturing and delivering this information to network probes and OSS/BSS solutions. Learn how Ixia’s NFV Visibility Reference Architecture enables comprehensive Customer Experience Assurance capabilities in HPE OpenNFV.


Metaswitch will be demonstrating how a complete, secure, evolved packet IMS Core and rich multimedia communications services can be instantiated in just seconds and elastically scaled-up and down on-demand within the HPE OpenNFV reference architecture, on platforms such as HPE Helion OpenStack, employing dynamic Orchestration like that offered by the HPE NFV Director.
