Summary: Qosmos has joined the Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem, a program dedicated to accelerating the deployment of solutions for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). The pre-integration of the Qosmos Classifier with Titanium Server makes it easier to create new service chain combinations, reduces TCO with COTS-based deployments, and facilitates migration between existing and future architectures.
Paris, France, 27 February 2015 – Qosmos®, the market leader in embedded Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and network intelligence technology for use in physical, virtualized and in Software Defined Networking (SDN) architectures, announced it has joined the Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem, a program dedicated to accelerating the deployment of solutions for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).
By validating and pre-integrating their hardware and software offerings with Wind River Titanium Server, Titanium Cloud ecosystem partners deliver optimized solutions to help accelerate time-to-market for service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) deploying infrastructure based on NFV. Service providers and TEMs can confidently select these hardware and software products knowing that they are pre-validated with Titanium Server and ready for deployment in live networks.
The Qosmos Classifier™, a dedicated software function with open SDN & NFV interfaces, designed with IETF Service Function Chaining (SFC) standards, has been pre-integrated and validated to fully benefit from the Wind River Titanium Server. This includes a straight alignment between the Intel® poll mode drivers (aka Intel DPDK®) along with the consistent networking (overlays support, etc.) support between the Wind River virtual switch and the Qosmos Classifier.
“The pre-integration of the Qosmos Classifier™ with Titanium Server brings several benefits: it makes it easier to create new service chain combinations, reduces TCO with COTS-based deployments, and facilitates migration between existing and future architectures,” said Jerome Tollet, CTO of Qosmos. “As a member of the Titanium Cloud ecosystem we are excited to join forces with Wind River to assist customers in reaching their NFV objectives.”
“Service providers are looking for validated and market-ready end-to-end NFV solutions. To address this need, collaboration across the ecosystem is essential,” said Charlie Ashton, senior director of business development for networking solutions at Wind River. “Through our Titanium Cloud program, we are partnering with leaders like Qosmos to create optimized, interoperable solutions for service providers and TEMs who are deploying NFV in their networks. While Wind River’s Titanium Server provides a foundation for Carrier Grade NFV infrastructure, by leveraging other pre-validated NFV elements service providers can quickly achieve their goals such as reducing OPEX while accelerating the introduction of new high-value services.”
Titanium Server is a carrier grade NFV infrastructure software solution that is designed to meet the stringent “always on” requirements of the telecom industry. With Titanium Server as the NFV infrastructure software foundation, the telecom industry can take full advantage of rapid service deployment while ensuring the Carrier Grade uptime and strict reliability mandated by telecom networks. Titanium Server is based on open software standards including carrier grade Wind River Linux, real-time Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM), carrier grade-enhancements to OpenStack®, Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (Intel DPDK), and accelerated virtual switching, all optimized for Intel architecture platforms.
Qosmos leads the market for embedded Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and network intelligence technology used in physical, SDN and NFV architectures. The company supplies software to vendors who embed real-time application awareness in their products for traffic optimization, service chaining, quality of service, analytics, cyber security and more. Qosmos brings fast time to market for network intelligence and continuous protocol signature updates inside physical, SDN and NFV networking products. As the leading supplier of embedded intelligence software, Qosmos contributes actively to international standards and serves 75% of the market.
