Newly launched NFV Solution Portal: a truly practical approach to leveraging the OpenNFV Ecosystem to accelerate time-to-market for CSPs

I am proud to say that a couple of days ago we took the wraps off our latest innovation in OpenNFV – the HPE OpenNFV Solutions Portal. To me the portal is a critical milestone in helping our customers to accelerate and secure the transition to standardized environments.

Why? Shifting from proprietary, closed network appliances to standards based, off-the-shelf IT infrastructures helps with cost through economies of scale and reduced management complexity. OpenNFV can deliver so much more.

Our customers are outstanding in delivering the highest service reliability to their subscribers. Most of them achieve this through rigorous – and hence time consuming – technology evaluation. To help our customers with speed of innovation we have to give them a way to accelerate that process of technology evaluation. And that is exactly what the OpenNFV Program that stands behind the OpenNFV Solutions Portal does.

We’ve taken the enthusiastic reception of the OpenNFV Program in the ISV and NEPs community and channeled it through our partner program into a solution catalog that lets our customers browse Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) from currently over 50 partners and pick and choose which ones meet their needs best. Knowing that each of the VNFs listed has already proven its compliance with the OpenNFV architecture and ETSI standards. Test results are available through the portal to registered CSP customers and as the name OpenNFV suggests everything is truly out in the “open”.

This helps our customers accelerate time to market – be it for a new service or for an infrastructure consolidation initiative. While the OpenNFV Solutions Portal won’t replace the proven RFI/RFP/PoC/Deployment process, it can help to accelerate it dramatically by enabling the process to focus on vendors that have already proven themselves.

Check out the portal at – just follow the prompts so our portal team can send you a login.

For a better idea of what else we’re planning watch the interview I gave Martyn Warwick at Telecom TV.
