Qosmos Joins TMF Catalyst Demo with vDPI Solution

By Paula Bernier May 30, 2014

Qosmos next month at TM Forum Live will be part of a CloudNFV demonstration of dynamic, data-driven management and operations.

TM Forum refers to these demonstrations as catalyst efforts. In this catalyst demonstration, Qosmos will be providing virtual deep packet inspection technology, which will be deployed as a service infrastructure component by EnterpriseWeb.

EnterpriseWeb is the name of a company, which sells an intelligent operations platform of the same name for managing, modeling, and running composite applications. As noted on the EnterpriseWeb website, this platform helps organizations harness their assets and govern their use.

Qosmos earlier this year laid out its strategy regarding network functions virtualization and software-defined network.

The first stage involves the Qosmos Service Aware Module, or SAM, virtual switch solution, which works with other vendors’ virtual switches. It classifies flows in the hypervisor, provides real-time traffic visibility, and turns the network into an application-aware environment. The first implementation of this Qosmos solution is available for pilot projects now, will be generally available in the third quarter, and was demonstrated at Mobile World Congress.

The second stage of the Qosmos NFV and SDN strategy involves DPI as a virtual network function component, a use case standardized by ETSI. This Qosmos solution was also demoed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. As reportedly previously by SDN Zone, it became available for pilot tests this quarter and will be generally available in the Q4. This solution, which runs on a virtual machine, shares application information with other network components, making virtual functionality found today in such gear as load balancers, service routers, and WAN optimization gear. This product can be used to optimize a virtual Evolved Packet Core, which is positioned to be one of the leading applications for NFV and SDN in carrier environments.

The third stage of the Qosmos strategy involves the introduction of a service chaining module, which identifies applications and metadata in real time through the use of packet tagging. This allows for improved network utilization, service customization, and product innovation, according to Qosmos.
