Existing network solutions are based on proprietary hardware appliances. This prevents service providers from rolling out new services due to the high procure-design-integrate-deploy cycle time compounded with additional investment costs, increasing high energy costs and shorter hardware shelf life. Going forward, service providers are considering deployment of solutions based on SDN/NFV which will enable immediate revenue opportunities, build business agility and makes their business more agile due to reduced capex/opex.

How Wipro Helps

Wipro's Software Defined Networking (SDN) & Network Function Virtualization (NFV) solution comprise of the following:

  • Wipro Virtualized EPC (WIP-vEPC
  • Wipro Management and Orchestration (WIP-MANO)
  • Wipro SDN Integration Framework (WIP-SIF)
  • Wipro Cloud Enabled Test Simulator (WIP-CETS)
  • Wipro Next Generation Integrated Management (WIP-NGIM)

Software Defined Networking (SDN) & Network Function Virtualization (NFV) solutions

  • Wipro Virtualized EPC (WIP-vEPC) - comprises of Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs) corresponding to the MME, SGW-CP and PGW-CP. It supports instantiation/de-instantiation of VNFs based on load and relocation/replication of VNFs to handle failure
  • Wipro Management and Orchestration (WIP-MANO) - provides a vendor neutral Management and Orchestration solution that supports Multi-vendor implementations and SDN/NFV environments
  • Wipro SDN Integration Framework (WIP-SIF) - provides harmonization between the network layers and vendor products at the Data Plane Network and Controller layers. It further provides a uniform network data model which abstracts vendor specific granularities
  • Wipro Cloud Enabled Test Simulator (WIP-CETS) - designed to address Telco's concern area of checking and reporting all the platform specific parameters of VNF applications over large distributed IT virtualization platform under simulated system conditions
  • Wipro Next Generation Integrated Management (WIP-NGIM) - ensures that the Telco service providers can seamlessly and consistently manage the Hybrid network which includes SDN, NFV and Legacy solutions

Business Benefits

  • Comprehensive NFV and SDN solution suites for reduced time-to-market for NFV/SDN roll outs
  • Easily customizable and flexible allowing equipment vendors/telecom operators to easily add new requirements
  • Reduced time-to-market for rolling out Management/Orchestrator & Controller offerings
  • Improved VNF roll-out performance and functional stability in Telco cloud environment
  • Support for all the standards-based interfaces as per ETSI and ONF
  • Ability to optimize software solutions in a Telco cloud environment
