Allot Brings Virtual Traffic Detection to HP OpenNFV

By Paula Bernier July 29, 2015

Allot Communications Ltd. has joined the HP OpenNFV Partner Program. Its involvement means Allot will provide its virtual Traffic Detection Function (vTDF) and security services on the HP OpenNFV platform.

The vTDF can act as part of a virtualized Evolved Packet Core solution in a wireless carrier network; the vTDF can sit anywhere in the network, from the core to the radio access network. It offers such functionality as analytics, charging, policy enforcement, and traffic detection. Paired with Allot’s Element Manager, it can allow for the creation and management of pre-integrated services. That includes content filtering and DDoS protection.

"Allot's virtualized solutions enable service providers and enterprises to enjoy high performance and scalability while minimizing capital and service costs. Operators are excited to be able to roll out new security services with reduced time to market at lower operational and capital expenditures, providing a great opportunity to monetize their data," said Jay Klein, CTO and vice president of Allot Communications. "We are excited to partner with HP and leverage the great value the HP NFV architecture offers with its approach to accelerate the design, proof-of-concept, trial and deployment of new cloud-enabled network services and innovations."

Best known for solutions that enable revenue generation and service optimization via the use of deep packet inspection, Allot has been an active participant in the ETSI NFV Industry Specification Group and worked on the VNF architecture standard. And earlier this year Allot bought cloud-based security firm Optenet for $5.5 million.

In other recent news from Allot, the company earlier this month announced wins from three new tier-1 mobile operators, totaling $8 million of new business for the company. Allot didn’t mention the companies by name, but did say the new business includes orders for the Allot Service Gateway Tera and ClearSee Networks Analytics solutions from operators in the Asia Pacific and EMEA, and a relationship with a mobile operator out of Latin America.
