CENX Unveils New Cortx Service Orchestration Suite

Services Lifecycle Management Essential to Software-Defined Networks

OTTAWA, Sept. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - CENX, a global provider of Service Orchestration solutions for software-defined networks, today announced the launch of its Cortx Service Orchestration suite, which brings service agility to networks migrating to Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), while dramatically improving operations.  With five years in the industry, serving mobile, wireline, cable and cloud data center service providers, CENX is expanding its product offering to bridge the needs of traditional physical and virtualized networks.

To meet today's skyrocketing data usage, service providers need to deploy services flexibly, quickly and with quality, leveraging SDN and NFV innovations.  Cortx Service Orchestrator is a vital tool that meets that need by automating the entire lifecycle of service ordering, provisioning, implementation, analytics, and assurance.

Unlike legacy Operations Support Systems (OSS), the Cortx Service Orchestrator abstracts underlying network complexities into a unified service model, making it ideally suited for multi-layer network domains, spanning multiple technologies such as SDN and NFV: 

  • Its open REST APIs allow rapid integration to SDN Controllers and NFV Management and Network Orchestration components.
  • It supports agile fulfillment and continuous assurance for a variety of network services, such as IP VPNs, MPLS core and Ethernet connectivity. 
  • Founded on distributed virtualized computing technologies, it provides the performance and elasticity needed in NFV infrastructure, for network scalability and real-time big data analytics. 

 

"We are excited to launch our new Cortx portfolio which builds on the success of our inaugural Ethernet Lifecycle Manager product," said Ed Ogonek, President and CEO of CENX. "To realize SDN/NFV's promise of service agility, and opex and capex reduction, service providers need a fundamentally new approach to managing network services – one that has been engineered to orchestrate services top-down, across both physical and virtualized infrastructures, across multiple vendors, and across multiple carriers."

"SDN and NFV adoption is being inhibited by a lack of standards and immaturity of OSS, policy-based controller products that can integrate with operators' existing environments," said Glen Ragoonanan, Principal Analyst at Analysys Mason. "CENX leverages its multivendor network connectivity heritage to provide an end-to-end service orchestration solution that aims to propel SDN and NFV adoption that can coexist with operators' existing infrastructure and operations."     

To learn more about how Cortx Service Orchestrator can address the needs of your evolving network, join us at the SDN & Virtualization Summit, co-located with Ethernet World, September 15-17th, or the SDN & OpenFlow World Congress, October 14-17th.

Whenever a new technology hits the high points of hype, everyone starts talking about it like it will solve all their business problems. Blockchain is one of those technologies. According to Gartner's latest report on the hype cycle of emerging technologies, blockchain has just passed the peak of their hype cycle curve. If you read the news articles about it, one would think it has taken over the technology world. No disruptive technology is without its challenges and potential impediments that frequently get lost in the hype. The panel will discuss their perspective on what they see as they key challenges and/or impediments to adoption, and how they see those issues could be resolved or mitigated.
