Verizon announced the launch of new Virtual Network Services (VNS) solution bundles in partnership with leading technology providers like Checkpoint Software, Cisco, Fortinet and Palo Alto Networks.

Bundles are currently available for SD WAN and network security and routing functions, with more to be added throughout 2018.

With the pre-packaged service bundles all network compatibility testing and licensing have already been completed, providing peace of mind while saving both time and labor, said Verizon. Additionally, Verizon’s end-to-end orchestration and closed loop service assurance allows customers to essentially “point and click” to enable SDN solutions.

Current VNS Solution Bundle options include software defined wide area networking (SD WAN) and network routing and security functions, which are available on Verizon’s universal customer premises based equipment (uCPE) and the hosted network services platform. Additional service chain options will be added to the library of bundles throughout 2018.

VNS Solution Bundles are enabled by Verizon Enterprise Orchestration and provide closed loop service assurance. The goal is a seamless transition from the rigid, traditional network model to an agile, resilient, and cost efficient opex model that requires limited human touch to trouble-shoot and manage.

Verizon’s Virtual Network Services lets enterprises increase their agility and reduce complexity by deploying SDN solutions that leverage Verizon’s open service provider ecosystem built on OpenStack.

Additionally, they can achieve fast service automation with Enterprise Orchestration, and meet market demands through automated service chains. Plus, all of Verizon’s SDN solutions can be centrally contracted and billed for better management and control.

Vickie Lonker, VP of Product Management and Development, Verizon
We tested and vetted these bundled solutions to remove the guesswork in matching up disparate technologies. We are able to do this because we have invested in building strong relationships across our technology provider community.

Mike Sapien, Chief Analyst, Enterprise Services, Ovum
By simplifying delivery of service chained virtualized network functions through their orchestration platform, Verizon has potentially shaved months from the deployment timeframe as well as significant associated configuration costs.
