SDN/NFV/Cloud

Software defined solutions at its best

Work smarter not harder with latest way to manage your systems. SDN has taken the place of old means to controlling the functionality of your networks and we know our way around all its perfected features.

What is SDN?

Software-defined networking (SDN) is way to manage networks that separates the control plane from the forwarding plane. SDN is a complementary approach to network functions virtualization (NFV) for network management. While they both manage networks, both rely on different methods.

SDN offers a centralized view of the network, giving an SDN Controller the ability to act as the “brains” of the network. The SDN Controller relays information to switches and routers via southbound APIs, and to the applications with northbound APIs. One of the most well-known protocols used by SDN Controllers is OpenFlow, however, it isn’t the only SDN standard, despite some using “SDN” and “OpenFlow” interchangeably.

Centralized, programmable SDN environments can easily adjust to the rapidly changing needs of businesses. SDN can lower costs and limit wasteful provisioning, as well as provide flexibility and innovation for networks. (SDXCentral.com)

Our network architectures utilize Open Source solutions, giving you compliant products that will help the organization of your company as well as work through CAPEX expenditures to take advantage of the latest techniques to optimize and efficiently automate portions of the network. As professional’s we can help your organization implement the SDN CORD design and develop north bound API application that can be custom build to meet your organization requirements.

SDN design specialties A-CORD, R-CORD, and E-CORD these architecture are proving the most efficient and scalable solutions for tier 1 service providers, large enterprises, and hyper-scale internet organization. With our knowledge of these solutions we can help organization implement a successful tested solution.

What is NFV – Network Functions Virtualization – Definition?

Network functions virtualization (NFV) (also known as virtual network function (VNF)) offers a new way to design, deploy and manage networking services. NFV decouples the network functions, such as network address translation (NAT), firewalling, intrusion detection, domain name service (DNS), and caching, to name a few, from proprietary hardware appliances so they can run in software.

It’s designed to consolidate and deliver the networking components needed to support a fully virtualized infrastructure – including virtual servers, storage, and even other networks. It utilizes standard IT virtualization technologies that run on high-volume service, switch and storage hardware to virtualize network functions. It is applicable to any data plane processing or control plane function in both wired and wireless network infrastructures.(SDXCentral.com)

We currently support:

* VNF Development
* VNF Managenment & Orchestration
* VNF Porting and Testing
* VNF Deployment
* Benchmarking and Performance Tuning (We are currently supporting the ETSI-GS NFV-REL004 and ETSI-GS-NFV-TST001 on SPIRENT Test Center products and developing an API integration’s for NFV-I and NFV-MANO frameworks.)

Community Participation: We are actively contributing to ON.LAB, we are also ONF members helping to develop Open Source frameworks for next generation solutions.

Certifications: Open Network Foundation – OCSA 

We redefine the possibilities of SDN and NFV solutions every day.

Villa-Tech we have been working alongside the World’s Largest Telco’s, Hardware Manufacturers and Network Design Experts to Build the Next Generation Cloud

Networking Solutions in OPEN CORD (Central Office Re-designed as a Data center).

Villa-Tech & CORD are designing a working model of how the World will function in years to come by designing a virtualization infrastructure light years ahead of anything available today.
