I am very excited that after engaging with Affirmed Networks for extensive integration and certification testing, Mellanox is now officially a partner of this leading virtual Evolved Packet Core (EPC) provider and key supplier of AT&T Domain 2.0 initiative. Through this mutually beneficial partnership, Mellanox aims to boost Affirmed Mobile Content Cloud (MCC) Virtualized Network Function (VNF) deployment efficiency with our high-performance server interconnect solutions.
Affirmed Networks is a leading telecommunications technology supplier with revolutionary Network Function Virtualization (NFV) solutions for EPC, vCPE, Gi LAN and SFC Controller. Affirmed’s virtualized MCC software has been designed to run on virtualized high-volume servers. However when server I/O capacity becomes constrained, application performance may suffer, resulting in under-utilized CPU resources, and excessive server footprint. Mellanox’s high-speed server interconnect solution enhances utilization of infrastructure resources for Affirmed’s virtualized product offerings, enabling optimal application performance as well as space and energy footprint for vEPC deployment. Affirmed Networks and Mellanox are both HPE OpenNFV ecosystem partners.
Hear Ron Parker, Senior Director of System Architecture at Affirmed Networks, talks about this partnership, and how Mellanox can help supercharge NFV deployment.
