PacketFront Software, the leading multi-vendor network automation provider, has received a grant to accelerate the development of solutions supporting Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV). The grant was awarded by Vinnova, the Swedish innovations agency. The project will run for two years with the objective to accelerate the development of PacketFront Software’s orchestration solution for SDN and NFV.
The transformation from hardware-dependent legacy systems to new software based SDN and NFV networks will change the core of how telecom operators operate their networks. PacketFront Software is uniquely positioned to help operators in this process by enabling a smooth and gradual migration path to SDN and NFV. This is done by using PacketFront Software’s BECS Network Management system’s capability to simultaneously orchestrate both legacy and SDN/NFV networks.
