Pertino to Release First NSV-Enabled Services for Cloud Network Engine

By Ed Silverstein September 27, 2013

Pertino will release its first Network Service Virtualization (NSV)-enabled network services for its Cloud Network Engine during Q4 of 2013. At the same time, it will announce third-party integration partners.

Pertino's approach eliminates the use of hardware appliances with virtualization. Yet, it differs from other approaches when it comes to implementation.

NFV tends to be centered on carrier and data center appliances. NSV tech from Pertino virtualizes functions on the network that reside on WAN-edge appliances and endpoint systems. It provides them as cloud-based services. That means they are simpler to use and less expensive when compared to hardware appliances.

"Pertino is following a path similar to cloud computing and storage – once you move IT infrastructure to the cloud and hide the technological complexity from users behind a cloud-easy experience, you're free to deliver some remarkable innovations," Todd Krautkremer, vice president of marketing at Pertino, said in a statement. "Pertino's SDN-powered Cloud Network Engine was built on this concept and NSV is just the latest example of how we are leveraging advanced technology behind-the-cloud-curtain to deliver disruptively simple and low-cost enterprise-class networking capabilities to SMB organizations."

Meanwhile, its innovation is being called a “milestone” by the company when providing cloud networking to small- and medium-sized businesses with NSV.

Looking at the bigger picture, Software Defined Networking (SDN) and NFV are poised for growth. The SDN market may total $3.7 billion by 2016, IDC said.  The NFV market will reach $5 billion by 2018, Doyle Research said.

"SDN and NFV technologies are poised to redefine the economics and agility of networking within datacenters environments," said Jim Metzler, vice president of Ashton, Metzler & Associates. "Pertino is one of the first companies to pursue a strategy of combining SDN and NFV technologies into a service that promises to deliver enterprise-class WAN capabilities with the ease and affordability we've come to expect from cloud-based services."

To stay informed on the growing NFV market, the Software Telco Congress - The NFV Event will be held on Nov. 20 and 21, 2013. It will look at the move to software from hardware which will result in carriers saving money and gaining flexibility by hosting their networks in private and virtual private clouds. New players will be able to compete in the market, as there also will be quicker time to market for new services.

The conference is being targeted to carriers, resellers, developers and others interested in the software telco ecosystem. The Software Telco Congress will be held in Techmart, Network Meeting Center, located in Santa Clara, Calif.
