Openwave's SDM-CE is VMware Ready for NFV

By Paula Bernier June 26, 2017

The user data repository offered by Openwave Mobility has been validated as VMware Ready for network functions virtualization.

Openwave Mobility’s user data repository is called the Subscriber Data Management Cloud edition, or SDM-CE. This solution provides federation and replication so network applications can read and write data from any data center or data silo. As a result, network operators can spin up applications much more quickly – within a couple of weeks as opposed to several months. And, Openwave Mobility says, this user data repository is a standout in the marketplace because it requires 60 percent fewer virtual machines than competing solutions.

As for today’s news, the Subscriber Data Management Cloud edition now has VMware’s highest level of endorsement. It carries the VMware Ready program branding, so customers can easily identify this new certification and other vendor products that are certified and interoperable as well. And it is available via the VMware Solution Exchange.

“The effective management of subscriber data underpins the success of an operator’s IoT and virtualization strategy,” said Gabriele Di Piazza, vice president of solutions for the telco NFV group at VMware. “Operators deploying SDM-CE on VMware can now fill this gap and benefit from cost savings, faster time to market and flexibility.”

In an interview with me late in 2015, Indranil Chatterjee, vice president strategy and marketing at Openwave Mobility, said the company’s all software solution helps mobile service providers manage and monetize their mobile data traffic, which will grow 10 times between now and 2020 and of which video represents 50 to 60 percent. He noted that Openwave Mobility also allows for subscriber data management.

Earlier this year, Reportlinker published data indicating SDM is poised to grow from $1.97 billion in 2016 to $4.44 billion by 2021. And it listed Ericsson, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Huawei, Nokia, Oracle, Amdocs, Cisco, Computaris International Inc., Openwave, Procera Networks, Redknee Solutions, and ZTE as among the SDM market leaders.
