Masergy launches NFV platform
Masergy Communications has launched a NFV platform targeting enterprises.
Virtual f(n) offers routing and firewall capabilities via software, which is said to eliminate the need for specialised network appliances and on-site administration.
According to market research firm IDC, it marks one of the first commercial applications to use NFV to enable companies to deploy network capabilities via software.
“Virtual f(n) truly changes the way networks are architected by removing the management, cost and space requirements typically associated with physical network assets,” said Tim Naramore, CTO, Masergy. “Now, through a simple software download, our customers can add full-featured network services, without equipment shipments and on-site administration. This is the realisation of our vision of the programmable enterprise.”
