FatPipe Networks and Wind River Optimize NFV and SD-WAN Deployments

By Frank Griffin April 28, 2017

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) are now key technologies for service providers, telecoms and enterprises. With these solutions in place, organizations are able to manage their networks with greater visibility and connect remote locations more effectively. The collaboration announced by FatPipe Networks and Wind River brings together two companies that are leaders in their field with the goal of optimizing and accelerating NFV and SD-WAN deployments.

FatPipe Networks has 11 U.S. patents in this field along with more than 180 technology claims related to multipath, SDN and selective encryption of broadband networks. In this collaboration, FatPipe is going to use WindRiver's Titanium Cloud to integrate its SD-WAN platform for a carrier-grade foundation to showcase and validate its NFV solution. The Titanium Cloud platform has solutions with commercial-ready NFV infrastructure software that allows service providers to quickly deploy virtualized services faster with carrier-grade uptime while saving costs.

“The value of FatPipe's SD-WAN technology integrated with Wind River Titanium Cloud means service providers and TEMs can easily and quickly deploy and manage a fully integrated NFV solution across their entire network without concern for interoperability. By joining forces with Wind River, a global leader in NFV and IoT software, we can assist our mutual customers in reaching their NFV objectives,” said FatPipe's CTO Sanch Datta.

According to FatPipe, it has carried out the necessary testing and validation processes as part of the Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem. This has allowed the company to pre-integrate its SD-WAN platform with Titanium Cloud, which means service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) can start delivering SD-WAN/NFV solutions that can be deployed in live networks.

“We are working with leaders like FatPipe Networks to create optimized, interoperable SD-WAN/NFV solutions for service providers and TEMs who are deploying NFV in their networks. Titanium Cloud provides a foundation for carrier-grade NFV infrastructure, and by leveraging other pre-validated NFV elements, service providers can quickly achieve their goals such as reducing OPEX while accelerating the introduction of new high-value services,” said Charlie Ashton, senior director of business development for Software Defined Infrastructure at Wind River.

For service providers, having validated and market-ready end-to-end NFV solutions means not having to spend more money to carry out the process themselves. With a solution that can be deployed in live networks, new services can be introduced to market faster.
