RADCOM Collaborates With Red Hat to Accelerate Operators' Transition to Cloud-Native Assurance

Grazed from RADCOM and Red Hat

RADCOM Ltd., today announced it is collaborating with Red Hat to provide operators with a fully virtualized network visibility solution running on Red Hat OpenStack Platform. As operators transition to NFV, a critical first step is gaining end-to-end network visibility. This collaboration enables operators to attain cloud-native network visibility without the hassle of building their own private cloud infrastructure. Moreover, once the operators' transition to NFV mature, integration efforts with the operators' NFV and MANO infrastructure can be simplified.

"Our customers see deploying network visibility as their top priority in beginning their journey to NFV-based networks. Customers want to deploy cloud-native service assurance as their first virtual network function (VNF) to test all other VNFs during the early POC(s) stage as well as when as the operator deploys them on the network," said Rami Amit, RADCOM's CTO and Head of Product. "However, not all operators have mature cloud environments. In collaborating with Red Hat, RADCOM is providing operators a solution that allows them to achieve network visibility more rapidly, whether they have cloud environments or not. This solution provides operators with an ideal cornerstone on which to build their next-generation NFV networks and ensures complete end-to-end network services visibility from day one."

RADCOM's solution includes Red Hat OpenStack Platform to provide virtual machines on demand. Running on top of Red Hat OpenStack Platform is RADCOM's MaveriQ solution that is built with a microservices architecture and runs as a Virtual Network Function (VNF) with multiple VNF Components. Delivering automatic creation of resource stacks and automated instantiations of virtual functions components are some of the critical success factors for cloud deployments.

RADCOM's network visibility delivers increased efficiency and real-time performance make use of less hardware and provides automated in/out scalability critical in today's high capacity networks and is becoming even more essential as operators begin deploying 5G and supporting increased IoT traffic. With RADCOM becoming a Red Hat ISV Advanced Partner, RADCOM's customers deploying its cloud-native assurance can benefit from the implementation of the Red Hat OpenStack Platform which can facilitate a full OpenStack deployment in transition to an NFV-based network.

With full network visibility out of the box, operators gain real-time insights into network and service performance to assure customer experience, and to optimize customer touchpoints, as they transition their services to a virtual platform. From day one, operators using RADCOM's network and customer insights to ensure improved performance and compliance with service SLAs can validate service quality throughout the virtual evolution from pre-deployment validation to live network deployments.
