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.

High-velocity engineering teams are applying not only continuous delivery processes, but also lessons in experimentation from established leaders like Amazon, Netflix, and Facebook. These companies have made experimentation a foundation for their release processes, allowing them to try out major feature releases and redesigns within smaller groups before making them broadly available. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Brian Lucas, Senior Staff Engineer at Optimizely, discussed how by using ne...
"There's plenty of bandwidth out there but it's never in the right place. So what Cedexis does is uses data to work out the best pathways to get data from the origin to the person who wants to get it," explained Simon Jones, Evangelist and Head of Marketing at Cedexis, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time. Now that design CAD teams are geographically distributed, centralizing their work is key. With large multi-gigabyte projects, outdated tools have stifled industrial team agility, time-to-market milestones, and impacted P&L stakeholders.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
Data scientists must access high-performance computing resources across a wide-area network. To achieve cloud-based HPC visualization, researchers must transfer datasets and visualization results efficiently. HPC clusters now compute GPU-accelerated visualization in the cloud cluster. To efficiently display results remotely, a high-performance, low-latency protocol transfers the display from the cluster to a remote desktop. Further, tools to easily mount remote datasets and efficiently transfer...
