Bangalore, India, February 26, 2016: Wipro Limited has announced the successful demonstration of the VEVATO framework on Wind River Titanium Server. Wind River Titanium Server is a Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) infrastructure software solution that delivers the carrier grade reliability required for telecom networks.
Wipro’s VEVATO framework is a verification and validation tool used for testing of the enterprise and telco cloud. VEVATO verifies and validates the entire life-cycle, from concept to production roll-out, of all critical cloud sub-systems in a phased manner.
Both the companies will jointly demonstrate the carrier grade features of Titanium Server using the VEVATO framework.
An assurance framework is needed to test the production readiness of an SDN/NFV enabled Telco cloud. Telco cloud roll-out is a multi-year transformation journey based on standards and open source components that are still evolving. To minimize the risks involved, VEVATO assurance framework provides a phase-wise approach starting with testing the infrastructure layer, followed by the software network functions and management and orchestration layers, and the final validation of end-to-end network services.
Wipro will demonstrate router, firewall & WAN optimizer functionality as virtualized network functions running on Titanium Server. The VEVATO framework will simulate various test case scenarios as per the ETSI standard to demonstrate service function chaining and various carrier grade features.
The use cases are being jointly demonstrated by the two companies at the Mobile World Congress being held in Barcelona from 22nd – 25th February at Wipro booth – 5C21 this year. The demo addresses one of the major pain-points of Telecom service providers- whether a Telco cloud matches the carrier grade performance of a traditional appliance-based network.
Vinay Rawat, Vice-President and Global Head of Network Equipment Provider business unit, Wipro Limited said, “Both Wind River & Wipro are strongly committed to innovation in Telecom and have been long time collaborators. This joint initiative is aimed at accelerating the adoption of SDN/NFV and providing confidence to CXOs on the carrier grade performance of Software Defined Infrastructure.”
“By collaborating across the ecosystem with innovators like Wipro, Wind River Titanium Server enables a foundation for a carrier grade infrastructure that will help companies accelerate their NFV and SDN goals,” said Paul Senyshyn, Vice President of Commercial Operations for Networking Solutions at Wind River.
