Telco's ViNOX Offers Carrier SDN Network OS with OpenFlow Support

  • Telco Systems
MANSFIELD, MA — Telco Systems, a provider of software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV), multi-service Carrier Ethernet 2.0 and MPLS edge solutions for mobile backhaul, business Ethernet services and cloud networking, announced the release of ViNOX, a Carrier SDN network operating system that includes native support for OpenFlow and NETCONF standards in parallel with MEF services and carrier-grade support. Among its benefits, ViNOX's OpenFlow capabilities reduce ISP CAPEX while increasing average fiber utilization.

Building on the extensive capabilities and features of its BiNOX operating system, ViNOX powers all Telco Systems’ Open Metro Edge (OME) devices, offering CE 2.0 capabilities of resiliency, quality of service, OAM, multiple transport technology support (.1Q, Q-in-Q, IP/MPLS) and, now, also OpenFlow support. ViNOX is fully compatible with already deployed T-Marc and T-Metro products and can be added via a simple software upgrade.

ViNOX provides full SDN support with comprehensive adoption of NETCONF, the network configuration protocol, and YANG, its data modeling language. Since NETCONF and YANG employ the XML file format, they are well suited for process automation and can shorten the NMS/OSS integration cycle. By incorporating these innovative management models, ViNOX offers a superior level of flexibility, support in configuration commit and rollout, and much more efficient network management.

Reducing CAPEX While Increasing Average Fiber Utilization
ViNOX's OpenFlow capabilities enable service providers to traffic engineer and load balance their networks, reducing CAPEX while increasing average fiber utilization by as much as 80 percent. A practical demonstration of ViNOX with OpenFlow succeeded in separating designated video conferencing traffic from the entire EVC stream and directing it in another network path, significantly boosting throughput for both traffic flows.

“The advantages of dispersing intelligence via SDN across telecommunications networks are astounding, and there is great enthusiasm for delivery of actual SDN capabilities according to the emerging OpenFlow standard,” declared Ariel Efrati, CEO. “ViNOX enables our customers to embark on a safe path to intelligent networks, where and when it makes sense, without risk to current practices and operations. By using OpenFlow at the network edge, service providers can enhance their service offering and differentiate between traffic flows with substantially higher granularity than ever before.”
