Eliminate the Service Roll-Out Bottleneck with NFV

February 22, 2016 — by Louis Scialabba0


Big-bandwidth applications are the tools your customers rely on to get things done. They don’t have time to wait through the typical six months of lead time needed for you to roll out new services on your traditional network built with proprietary “big iron” hardware.

The good news is that most carriers have begun the process of testing Network Function Virtualization (NFV) as a way to make network and service provisioning faster, more flexible and ultimately more profitable.

Networks Are Built to Be Up, But Often Are Not

February 2, 2016 — by Frank Yue0


I am constantly driving around town.  When I am lucky, there are no problems and I can easily get to my destination.  Rarely, there will be a scheduled event like a holiday parade or triathlon going through part of town requiring roads to be closed. Instead of trying to find an alternate path, I often end up turning around and going home.

In between these two situations, I usually end up stuck in some traffic.  It may be the lunch time rush or the school bus is dropping off students after school.  This delays my journey, but I bear with the unforeseen circumstances and eventually make it where I was trying to get to.

Orchestrating and Automating My Holiday Shopping

December 29, 2015 — by Frank Yue1

This holiday season, I purchased most of my gifts online.  The process was easy and informative every step of the way.  From browsing the items and pictures on the various websites to checking out and tracking the shipments, everything was automated and coordinated.  I had to do little but sit and relax with all the time that I would have spent driving from store to store and fighting the holiday crowds.

We designed and implemented SLB and GSLB technologies to create an architecture that makes applications available anytime and anywhere.  This was a key step to the virtualization of the application infrastructure.  The physical location of the servers and datacenters became less important as we used these technologies to enable optimal access to the application.
