OneAccess Networks Simplifies NVF-Based Services With OVP Design Studio

By Frank Griffin March 30, 2017

Network service chaining uses the capabilities of software-defined networking (SDN) to create a service chain of connected network services and connect them in a virtual chain. These connections can be used by communications service providers (CSPs) and managed services providers (MSPs) to deliver many services with different characteristics from a single network connection. The new OVP Design Studio from OneAccess Networks will, according to the company, create virtual network function service chains by simplifying NFV-based services development for CSPs and MSPs in a Web-based interface.

One of the greatest benefits of network service chaining is that it automates the way virtual network connections can be set up so traffic flows for connected services can be managed with greater efficiency. The chain of services can be applied to different traffic flows depending on the source, destination or type of traffic using SDN controllers.

The Web-based interface of OVP Design Studio uses drag-and-drop functionalities to model, design, test and validate complete virtual network function (VNF)-based service chains. This will give CSPs and MSPs the ability to create and deliver NFV-based services quickly and export the fully tested service templates, greatly reducing the complexity of creating NETCONF-based services and accelerating time-to-revenue.

Pravin Mirchandani, CMO, OneAccess, highlighted the complexities of creating and testing NETCONF-based and virtualized network services. Mirchandani said, “Unless you’ve already wrestled with the tasks involved in creating and testing NETCONF-based services, it’s hard to appreciate the game-changing nature of OVP Design Studio…Operators and MSPs are frankly overwhelmed by the complexity and cost of designing their virtualized network services.”

The graphical interface of OVP Design Studio has an environment that gives users full control with quick integration into any NETCONF-capable orchestration system for NFV deployments. It creates network connections for both physical and virtual interfaces, instantiates and interconnects one or more VNFs, defines service parameters and troubleshoots the resulting service chain. After the service is running, complex network service descriptors (NSDs) can be generated by users to export to provisioning systems for service deployments using NETCONF.

The OVP Design Studio features tools to create service chains using drag-and-drop, rapid proto-typing, integrated troubleshooting, and automatic generation of NSDs.

The solutions OneAccess Networks provides are used by 29 of the top 100 service providers in the world to deliver managed services to their customers, maximize cost savings, deliver market innovation and accelerate time-to-market.

The OVP Design Studio is available now as an add-on license to the OVP package.
