Dialogic recently announced the rollout of its Cloud/Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) test bed and product proving ground based on the Open Platform for Network Functions Virtualization (OPNFV) OpenStack-based Virtualized Infrastructure Manager (VIM). It will initially be based on the OPNFV Brahmaputra release.
The OPNFV Cloud/NFV proving ground, a Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) environment, will provide automated management and configuration of Dialogic’s internal compute, storage, and networking resources used for the developmental cloud compatibility and functionality testing of Dialogic’s virtualized media, signaling, and application layer solutions, said the company.
One of the functions of OPNFV is to provide a reference platform for implementing systems to manage COTS servers and networking resources of large data centers that make up the next evolutionary step in telco infrastructure deployments. It combines OpenStack, OpenDaylight, and various other open source components to provide a standardized cloud operating system and Software Defined Networking (SDN) to deploy Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs) without the need for proprietary purpose-built hardware traditionally used to build service provider networks.
