Platform network functions orchestration
The big challenge
A true Telco Cloud implies a paradigm shift, where orchestration must migrate from vertical stacks (each with its own orchestrator) to a scenario where the infrastructure is unique for all network functions, which are deployed using a single orchestrator agnostic to the network function provider.
What is Whitenfv?
Network Function Orchestration (VNF and CNF), as part of the ETSI Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) standard, and Software-Defined Networks (SDN) allow the operator to achieve agility and flexibility in the creation of network workloads, while reducing CAPEX and OPEX.
Whitenfv fulfills the Management and Orchestration (MANO) function within the ETSI NFV standard, allowing the development of descriptors that are infrastructure agnostic and can be used to deploy VNF/CNFs across multiple sites.
- It is supported by ETSI: it is based on the Open Source MANO (OSM) project.
- Solves the challenges of NFV orchestration: comprehensively manages the lifecycle of network services.
- It is multi-site and multi-vim: allows deployment in multiple locations on different types of infrastructure.
- It allows managing the network function lifecycle: it has the necessary modules for day 0, day 1 and day 2 deployment.
- It is lightweight: it is designed on a microservices architecture.
- It is truly open: compatible with any VNF/CNF.
- It is constantly powered by real use cases from operators as we are active members of the OSM community.
with the standard
Product in constant alignment with the standards, more than any other NFV orchestrator.
Whitenfv is part of
the OSM community
Whitenfv is aligned with OpenSourceMANO (OSM). We are members of the community in strategic positions contributing with code. We also add functionalities for high availability and resilience that makes it a “carrier class” product.
Whitenfv has been extensively tested and validated since its inception in the ETSI NFV Plugtests, demonstrating its interoperability with different types of network functions.
