Telco Systems’ industry-leading EdgeGenie Orchestrator advanced network management system just got a whole lot better. It now features the embedded OpenDayLight controller to supports OpenFlow Software-Defined Networking (SDN) devices and the OpenStack Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) controller as well.
EdgeGenie Orchestrator is a comprehensive platform for end-to-end management across the entire service provider network which today is often composed of legacy, Carrier Ethernet (CE) 2.0 and SDN/NFV. It provides a complete solution for the full life cycle of network deployment, from planning to managing, monitoring and maintaining network services.
In addition to support for the latest release of OpenDayLight, EdgeGenie also supports NFV orchestration utilizing OpenStack customized management. Service providers can use EdgeGenie to efficiently provision all of their network devices including Ethernet, CE 2.0, MPLS, and SDN/NFV.
SDN utilizes OpenFlow, the most popular SDN protocol, to tell network devices where to send data packets. With OpenFlow, packet-routing decisions are centralized, so that the network can be programmed independently of vendor-specific switches.
OpenDaylight is the device management module of OpenFlow and its latest release is called “Helium”.
EdgeGenie Orchestrator’s support for Helium enables service providers to take full advantage of SDN and NFV for networks of any size and scale, as well as Helium’s capabilities of high availability, clustering, security and many tools for Service Function Chaining.
