  • 3 reasons why an IMS core should be virtualized
    The IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) revolutionized the way network infrastructures were architected. It defined the granular decomposition of network functions, completely standardized open interfaces, and separated the control and media planes. It has been nearly two decades since its inception but IMS take up is still in its infancy.

  • 4 reasons why network operators should adopt NFV
    Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is widely recognized as the most significant evolution in carrier network infrastructures in decades. All major standards bodies, along with numerous open source projects and countless alliances of vendors and network operators, have been moving at breakneck speed to align with the ETSI NFV Industry Specifications Group (ISG). The ISG is charged w...

  • Building Cloud Native to deliver on the promise of NFV
    The primary objective of Network Functions Virtualization, laid-out in a white paper developed by a consortium of network operators nearly 5 years ago, was quite clear: To significantly reduce the capital and operational costs associated with deploying communications services.  While the NFV specifications have progressed at a breakneck speed, since then, much of the effort has been fo...

  • Evaluating VoLTE Security
    This blog post discusses the security implications of switching to VoLTE for mobile operators. Traditionally, the voice traffic elements of mobile telephone networks consisted of very smart core/edge network functions which were accessed by relatively simple end-user terminals (i.e. mobile phones) using a reasonably secure family of protocols designed for circuit-switched mobile netw...

  • NFV the right way: A cloud native foundation for a 5G future
    There is little doubt in the telecoms industry that network functions virtualisation (NFV) will be the foundation for communications networks of the future. But for NFV to deliver the benefits expected and promised, its constituent virtual network functions (VNFs) must first be developed using cloud-native design principles. This article was first published in VanillaPlus.

  • Extending the Switch Abstraction Interface to the Wide Area Network
    As I am not a real writer, in the sense that my output is generally neither coherent nor legible, I usually avoid offending individuals by reporting on their conference presentations. Following a recent speech by Metaswitch’s very own Alan Elder at the Open Compute Project’s (OCP) annual shindig, however, I am making an exception. That’s not just because it’s fun to imagine his initial...

  • Can Telcos Really Rely on Public Clouds?
    From the mindset of traditional network operators, the public cloud is often viewed with some wariness. There are a host of objections to the public cloud that keep many service providers from considering this cloud environment in their network virtualization strategies. But we think that the public cloud does have a role to play future NFV deployments.
