CENX, an emerging Lifecycle Service Orchestration(LSO) firm, announced that it is collaborating with Brocade, Red Hat, and to showcase end-to-end service management interoperability capabilities over hybrid network infrastructure in its SDNFV innovation lab. 

CENX’s SDNFV innovation lab provides an ecosystem to showcase streamlined operations and real-world implementation of leading-edge use cases, such as enterprise services using virtual Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE), VoLTE using virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC), and Software-defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN). 

The multi-vendor environment includes CENX Exanova Service Intelligence, Brocade vRouter, Red Hat OpenStack Platform, and RIFT.ware NFV Orchestrator and VNF Manager. 

According to CENX, Exanova Service Intelligence provides the unified LSO interface to the multiple components within an NFV architecture – NFV Orchestrator, Virtualized Network Function (VNF) Manager, VNFs, Virtualized Infrastructure Manager (VIM) – as well as physical network functions (PNFs). It continuously ingests and analyzes network data to provide a real-time view of the state of services in relation to dynamic SDNFV network topology, with supporting KPI metrics.

By bringing together leading vendors to pre-integrate comprehensive solutions across complex, hybrid physical and virtualized infrastructure, we can help service providers more quickly realize the opex-saving benefits of these innovations.
