Guavus Partners ConteXtream to Offer CSPs Real-time Analytics for Dynamic Network Resources Management

Tango Telecom

ConteXtream, a leading provider of carrier-grade network virtualization solutions, has partnered with Guavus, a leading provider of big data analytics solutions, to bring real-time analytics to Software Defined Networking (SDN) deployments on service provider networks. The partnership will combine ConteXtream’s ContexNet™ and Guavus’ Reflex™ operational intelligence platform. The joint solution gives network operators an end-to-end view across their network and enables Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to dynamically and more efficiently allocate network resources for video optimization, TCP optimization, and rate shaping.

According to ConteXtream, its ContexNet is a carrier-grade distributed SDN fabric that leverages proven virtualization and grid computing technologies to enable operators to accelerate revenue growth through more rapid testing and introduction of new services or features; utilize local and remote network resources on demand, and reduce CAPEX and OPEX by automating network operations. ContexNet which runs on standard, off-the-shelf computing platforms, creating a single, distributed and scalable SDN domain, dynamically links network functions by steering the right traffic flows to virtual functions in the right sequence, is compliant with industry standard-based mechanisms such as OpenFlow, LISP and OpenStack. These enable it to fully separate control from forwarding, location from identity, and orchestration from networking.

Guavus’ Reflex Platform provides a real time integrated view across customers’ business and operations for improved decision making, enabling carriers to benefit from an end-to-end view across their enterprise with a highly granular resolution and actionable insights that can be embedded into automated workflows to rapidly implement value added services and develop network policies that effectively reduce capital and operational costs.

Guavus and ConteXtream have a long and successful history of working together within large-scale carrier deployments, including jointly providing the SDN-fabric and data analysis tools for a Tier-1 wireless service provider on traffic of more than 50M subscribers,” said Anshu Agarwal, VP Marketing for ConteXtream. “This past experience, and Guavus’ track record of innovation, made them the logical choice for partnering with to take data analysis on our SDN platform to the next level.”

Guavus’ operational intelligence platform combined with Contextream’s SDN fabric is a carrier grade solution that paves the way for CSPs to not only achieve true Network Functions Virtualization, but gain additional insight into network operations so they can realize greater operational and efficiency gains,” said Ben Parker, principal technologist at Guavus.
