The first open software platform for network functions virtualization

Network functions virtualization (NFV) promises to help service providers cut costs, while enabling the faster deployment of new, value-added services to their subscribers. Want to be the first to market with NFV? Open source software can get you there.


To take advantage of NFV, you need an open software platform to run network applications in a virtual environment that delivers high performance on commodity hardware, reliability, scalability, and comprehensive management and orchestration features.

In this webinar, 6WIND and Red Hat outline their plan to produce the first open software platform for NFV, applicable to RAN, access and aggregation, and EPC equipment.

Join the webinar to learn about the system-level problems that are addressed by the platform and discover its benefits with a discussion of a service-provider use case.
