Network operators are demanding greater deployment flexibility and hardware independence when selecting subscriber experience intelligence, analytics and 3GPP-compliant policy enforcement solutions. PacketLogic/V platforms offer all of the software capabilities offered on its hardware-based PacketLogic platforms available on virtual machine environments running on COTS hardware.
All of the functional components that make up Sandvine’s PacketLogic solutions – Perspectives, Presentation, and Actions – can be readily provisioned without purchasing vendor-specific, single-use hardware configurations or purpose-built hardware.
This provides ultimate flexibility in provisioning computing resources and PacketLogic software licenses to provide detailed, subscriber-centric analytics and support for intelligent, real-time policy enforcement.
PacketLogic/V platform components run as individual Virtual Network Function Components (VNFC) that are part of an ETSI-defined Virtual Network Function (VNF) environment that a network operator would need to support a PacketLogic analytics or enforcement solution.
Capabilities supported include:
Network operators are turning to virtualization in order to reduce hardware dependencies, optimize capital expenditures, and accelerate their ability to deploy new services and generate revenue. It enables network operators to utilize common hardware and software platforms, gaining economies of scale by using common spares and reducing power consumption and space required.
The PacketLogic/V platform is a flexible solution that can be used to enable all PacketLogic functions that make up the PacketLogic software solutions, each of which can be customized to represent a specific VNF in mobile or fixed broadband network deployments:
Big Data integration options with eVolution. IPFix for real-time and ODBC for historical data export.
