Amdocs and Vodafone Showcase Multi-Vendor Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Demonstration at Mobile World Congress 2016

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At Mobile World Congress, Amdocs (NASDAQ:DOX), the leading provider of customer experience solutions will showcase a multi-vendor NFV demonstration at the Amdocs booth in Hall 3, stand 3G10 and the Vodafone booth in Hall 6, Stand 6B30. The demo highlights key virtual Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE) use cases, fully orchestrated by the Amdocs Network Cloud Service Orchestrator solution, with leading software-defined network (SDN), security, analytics, and cloud management partners.

The Vodafone VPN+ demo shows how a virtual private network (VPN) can be enhanced using SDN and network functions virtualization (NFV) to increase performance and keep hardware requirements to a bare minimum. VPN+ automates and simplifies deployment and incident management processes, while providing information about multiple parameters (analytics, performance and security monitoring). It is a non-proprietary system built with components from leading manufacturers, including Amdocs, Juniper Networks, Aria Networks, Red Hat, Adva Optical Networking and Fortinet.

“This demo, designed and delivered jointly with Vodafone and partners, reinforces Amdocs commitment to open, vendor-neutral NFV solutions that fuel service innovation in the hybrid physical/virtual network,” said Ann Hatchell, head of marketing for network at Amdocs. “It showcases the agility of both Amdocs Service Design and Create, and Amdocs Network Cloud Service Orchestrator in being able to continuously fulfill the end-to-end service lifecycle in response to real-time events, to adapt to traffic loads, to recover through dynamic policies and self-healing, and to leverage analytics to mitigate the impact of security threats. Amdocs offers a unique, holistic approach to NFV service lifecycle management by leveraging the power of orchestration and automation to maximize operational efficiencies, accelerate service innovation and agility in the hybrid network – these are all key steps towards hybrid networks enabling the speed of innovation required in a world of digital immediacy.”
