Ipanema Technologies, BT Collaborate on NFV Study

BT and Ipanema Technologies are expanding their existing commercial relationship to study Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). BT’s researchers based in Adastral Park campus will collaborate with counterparts from Ipanema Technologies to examine the potential of the company’s virtual ip|engines.

The objective of the research is to demonstrate the ability of Ipanema’s technology to provide virtualized WAN optimization and application performance functionality with the initial focus on connectivity, Quality of Service (QoS), acceleration, and reporting. 

“NFV has real potential as a technology, which is why we have a wider program in place to determine exactly which network functions can be virtualized. Effectively managing and controlling application performance remains absolutely critical to BT’s enterprise customers, so we welcome the opportunity to explore the future uses of virtual ip|engines from Ipanema.”

-  Dr Tim Whitley, MD of Research & Innovation for BT

“We appreciate that the nature of networks and the methods of computing are changing rapidly. Virtualizing our technology has the potential to deliver numerous benefits to our customers, including: reduced expense, quicker deployment, reduced power consumption, hardware independence, and even greater scalability. We are delighted to be working with BT on this research project.”

-  Paul Cobos, Vice President Global Partners, Ipanema Technologies
