Virtualization and cloud infrastructure for communication services offer to service providers advantages in operational cost reduction and time to market service distribution to the final customer.
With its “Lite Edition”, NetMatch-S as virtualized SBC has proven its capabilities on virtualized environments, deployed for both User Network Interfaces (UNI) and Network Node Interfaces (NNI) by enterprises and service providers in EMEA.
By evolving to NetMatch-S Cloud Inside, NetMatch-S CI is the first “cloud-inside” SBC, specifically designed for deployment in Data Center/Cloud Environments, according to emerging IT practices and Telco specifications (NFV). It supports a wide set of hypervisors and Cloud Management systems, enabling rapid integration with emerging cloud-based solutions in order to reduce capital equipment cost and complexity, system deployment times, and facilitate business innovation.
Also, by leveraging on virtualization, organizations can deliver services by orders of magnitude faster than with legacy, proprietary technologies.
NetMatch-S CI adopts the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model separating clearly the hardware platform from the Operating System, HA Middleware and Software Applications level. Leveraging on virtualization technologies, it can be installed over any commercial hardware (COTS) that fulfills NetMatch-S requirements in terms of Core, RAM and storage.
According to emerging IT practices and Telco specifications (NFV), NetMatch-S internally adopts the cloud paradigm and exploits dynamic mechanisms for resource allocation on demand, depending on the effective IP session management requirements, thus providing maximum flexibility, dynamic configuration and scalability.
