Alcatel-Lucent developing first open CloudBand 'community'
Oct 03, 2013 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) --
Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) said it is working to advance industry adoption of network functions virtualization (NFV), the consolidation of carrier network functions across distributed industry standard servers by creating the CloudBand Ecosystem Program, the first open community of service providers, developers and vendors adopting NFV.
NFV technology supports the flexible network infrastructure needed to move complex applications and services to the cloud. It enables service providers to bring the agility, efficiency and economics of the cloud to their own networks and business operations, allowing them to offer cloud services with the performance and reliability that consumers and enterprises expect.
Virtualizing network functions allows faster and more efficient deployment where they are needed. In addition, service life-cycles can be more easily managed to meet dynamic customer demands without the huge investments in time, costs and power that are currently required.
Alcatel-Lucent is at the forefront of global communications, providing products and innovations in IP and cloud networking, as well as ultra-broadband fixed and wireless access to service providers and their customers, enterprises and institutions throughout the world.
