Media Alert: MRV Uncovers New Capabilities in SDN and NFV

MRV Communications ™, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRVC) (“MRV®”), a global provider of innovative packet and optical solutions, announced today that is has published a white paper that explores new techniques in Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) that revolutionize how service providers architect, build and operate networks. The white paper explains how SDN and NFV approaches can be leveraged to enable service innovation, service differentiation, CapEx/OpEx reduction and continued growth of services and revenues.

Key Takeaways:

  • Traditionally, service providers had to choose between (a) utilizing hardware appliances for network functions while losing the benefits of NFV and SDN, or (b) leveraging NFV and/or SDN architecture on COTS servers while incurring associated traffic-forwarding rate limitations.
  • MRV eliminates this dilemma by enabling service providers to process virtual functions in the cloud, or migrate functions to the metro service edge and customer premises. This approach results in gaining NFV and SDN benefits without compromising service performance.
  • The unique architectures of MRV’s OptiPacket®, OptiDriver™, OptiSwitch®, Pro-Vision® and Linux open source software streamline service providers’ ability to migrate to NFV and SDN approaches by incorporating:
    • a standardized virtualization operating environment that promotes improved performance, flexibility and the consolidation of management and provisioning functions;
    • open, programmable hardware to ensure operators can reprogram devices quickly and on demand; and
    • centralized, intelligent applications that implement dynamic, advanced services like application-awareness, security and traffic steering.

MRV Statement:

  • “MRV continues to offer unique solutions that help service providers, data center operators, content delivery network providers and more grow their service portfolios, become more competitive in their markets and increase revenue,” said Zeev Draer, vice president of strategic marketing for MRV Communications. “MRV’s latest NFV and SDN developments encompass our broad packet and optical portfolio and have enabled us to further support our customers’ future network design and implementation plans to achieve service innovation, differentiation and agility.”
