Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has launched OpenNFV Solution Portal, a network functions virtualization (NFV) information center to provide communication service providers (CSPs) access to pre-validated virtual network function (VNFs) solutions from HPE OpenNFV partners.
HPE said that the OpenNFV Solution Portal provides CSPs access to a catalog of more than 60 OpenNFV partners. CSPs can search the catalog by use case or vendor, connecting them with the solutions that best address their specific requirements. By providing CSPs access to pre-validated VNFs, HPE is delivering a critical component of the NFV service lifecycle management process, helping streamline onboarding and accelerating time-to-market, while reducing capital and operational expenditures, said the company.
HPE also plans to introduce a marketplace to acquire pre-validated VNFs; as well as solution design and deployment services in 2016.
