AUTHORED BY: Mavenir

SANTA CLARA, CA., and RICHARDSON, TX, June 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Big Switch Networks®, the Cloud First Networking Company, today announced it has entered into an OEM agreement with Mavenir, the industry’s only software-based, end-to-end Cloud Native network solutions provider for CSPs, to include Big Cloud Fabric (BCF) in a fully tested and validated end-to-end NFV solution. Since entering into the strategic partnership, Mavenir and Big Switch are working with numerous customers to realize NFV deployments globally.

Mavenir and Big Switch already count one of the leading mobile carriers in the United States as a joint customer. Additionally, Mavenir and Big Switch have won leading telco providers in EMEA and APAC, which have selected the end-to-end NFV solution for their business-critical networks.

Seven of the 10 largest Communications Service Providers (CSPs) in the world, including Verizon, rely on Big Switch to support their business-critical functions. Communications Service Providers (CSPs) leverage solutions from Big Switch’s Cloud First Networking portfolio for their NFV deployments, which represent the most demanding workloads in telco clouds, for the following business benefits:

  • Resiliency and performance at scale
  • Design and deployment flexibility
  • Reduced operational complexity
  • Integration of security and analytics

Big Cloud Fabric is the only data center networking solution to leverage open, white box switch hardware to provide a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), bringing a Cloud Native networking model to telco cloud applications. BCF’s differentiated architecture simplifies operations and improves manageability for evolving distributed/edge cloud use-cases.

Mavenir selected BCF for this reference architecture for its ease-of-use, ability to support the unique, challenging scale requirements of NFV environments, and for its unparalleled automation capabilities, all of which make it the ideal networking platform for service provider NFV deployments.
