HFR Chooses WebNMS to Deliver Carrier Ethernet Mobile Network Solutions with End-to-End Management

HFR, Korea’s representative vendor of wired and wireless network equipment, and WebNMS, a division of Zoho Corp. and a leading global provider of multi-vendor, network orchestration solutions, announce their collaboration in an end-to-end, MEF CE 2.0 certified solution for mobile backhaul. The HFR HA-800 series of networking systems has integrated the WebNMS Carrier Ethernet Management Solution to provide comprehensive management of high performance services from client to core.

The HFR HA-800 series combines the MEF CE 2.0 certified HA-805 10GbE Network Interface Devices (NIDs) as well as the HA-821 and HA-822 Carrier Ethernet aggregation switches to build complete mobile backhaul networks that are cost effective, simple to manage and ready for evolving high performance business and 4G services. The entire series leverages the WebNMS Carrier Ethernet Management Solution to deliver flexible MEF CE 2.0 service management. Built on the flexible WebNMS Framework, the WebNMS CE Solution delivers end-to-end service provisioning and activation, fault management, performance management, security management and QoS management.

“We chose WebNMS for its comprehensive suite of management capabilities and its flexibility in adapting to our unique features and customer requirements,” said Peter K. Cho, vice president of HFR, Inc. “HFR quickly delivered our end-to-end mobile backhaul solution with the WebNMS network and service management solution that integrates service activation, assurance, performance and fault management with powerful and intuitive visualization tools.”

Carrier Ethernet services are widely deployed and quickly growing in number and performance. In this dynamic environment, efficient service provisioning, activation and management are essential to control operational costs. As the demand for dynamic services grows, automating these functions under SDN orchestration will become increasingly important. With WebNMS supporting the HA-800 series, the end-to-end solution is ready to help transform service provider networks away from inefficient, operational silos to a unified and scalable orchestrated service delivery platform. This transformation will simplify service delivery and lower provider operational costs.

“The WebNMS Carrier Ethernet Management Solution provides a complete, standards-compliant network management platform to manage both network elements and flexibly defined services,” said Prabhu Ramachandran, director of WebNMS. “The HFR end-to-end solution demonstrates the power of network management unification which we see as a prerequisite to network automation.”

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
