CENX Unveils New Cortx Service Orchestration Suite

OTTAWA, Canada, September 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Services Lifecycle Management Essential to Software-Defined Networks  

CENX, a global provider of Service Orchestration solutions for software-defined networks, today announced the launch of its Cortx Service Orchestration suite, which brings service agility to networks migrating to Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), while dramatically improving operations.  With five years in the industry, serving mobile, wireline, cable and cloud data center service providers, CENX is expanding its product offering to bridge the needs of traditional physical and virtualized networks.

To meet today's skyrocketing data usage, service providers need to deploy services flexibly, quickly and with quality, leveraging SDN and NFV innovations.  Cortx Service Orchestrator is a vital tool that meets that need by automating the entire lifecycle of service ordering, provisioning, implementation, analytics, and assurance.  

Unlike legacy Operations Support Systems (OSS), the Cortx Service Orchestrator abstracts underlying network complexities into a unified service model, making it ideally suited for multi-layer network domains, spanning multiple technologies such as SDN and NFV:  

  • Its open REST APIs allow rapid integration to SDN Controllers and NFV Management and Network Orchestration components.
  • It supports agile fulfillment and continuous assurance for a variety of network services, such as IP VPNs, MPLS core and Ethernet connectivity.  
  • Founded on distributed virtualized computing technologies, it provides the performance and elasticity needed in NFV infrastructure, for network scalability and real-time big data analytics.  

"We are excited to launch our new Cortx portfolio which builds on the success of our inaugural Ethernet Lifecycle Manager product," said Ed Ogonek, President and CEO of CENX. "To realize SDN/NFV's promise of service agility, and opex and capex reduction, service providers need a fundamentally new approach to managing network services - one that has been engineered to orchestrate services top-down, across both physical and virtualized infrastructures, across multiple vendors, and across multiple carriers."

"SDN and NFV adoption is being inhibited by a lack of standards and immaturity of OSS, policy-based controller products that can integrate with operators' existing environments," said Glen Ragoonanan, Principal Analyst at Analysys Mason. "CENX leverages its multivendor network connectivity heritage to provide an end-to-end service orchestration solution that aims to propel SDN and NFV adoption that can coexist with operators' existing infrastructure and operations."    

To learn more about how Cortx Service Orchestrator can address the needs of your evolving network, join us at the SDN & Virtualization Summit, co-located with Ethernet World, September 15-17th, or the SDN & OpenFlow World Congress, October 14-17th.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
