Network Function Virtualization (NFV)

 Less devices. More functionality.

ActivePort NFV Technology

ActivePort NFV allows you to deploy a virtual device or application on a single CPE. Replace physical network components with virtual. Fewer devices are required and equipment costs are lower. Less hardware, less time on site, and an overall reduction in operational costs. 

NFV & VNF

What is the difference and how can they help?
In a nutshell, NFV is network architecture used by service providers to virtualize components of the network.
Within this framework, VNFs are deployed as virtual machines (VMs) that are the software form of network hardware, such as firewalls and SIP PBXs. Example – you can load a Mikrotik firewall or Astrix PBX onto the same X86 CPE that you are deploying for ActivePort SD-WAN. This technology allows you to utlilise one inexpensive X86 device for multiple network functions.

 

THE Activeport difference

Simplify Network Complexity

What makes ActivePort so unique compared with other NFV software vendors, is the technology layers on top of the ActivePort SD-WAN software. This provides a totally seamless and integrated solution when coupled with ActivePortal’s single-pane-of-glass view of all uCPE services functions.

Manage multiple virtual network functions (VNFs) on a single X86 device

FOR the NERDS

Operating System Architecture

ActivePort’s Operating System (AcPOS) is a device-based software that sits within ActivePort’s MANO framework, called ActivePortal. This innovative operating system makes it easy to deploy and manage virtual network functions (VNFs) on uCPE, delivering fast, reliable and streamlines operations. Run multiple virtualised applications on the same CPE on Linux KVM. When using AcPOS, customers can install your choice of Enterprise firewall for complete coverage. 

FOR the NERDS

Jump in the driver’s seat

Spin up and configure a virtual firewall in minutes using  ActivePort NFV functionality in ActivePortal. Easy to use and navigate, the ActivePortal Operating System and interface puts you back in the driver’s seat and in control of your network configuration. 

Virtual Firewall

ActivePort has a long list of certified firewall providers to choose from. Simply sign-up with your preferred provider and add your choice of virtual firewall (NFV). Centralised or site-based firewall options are available.

Deploy Faster

With centralised management you can dynamically deploy network services within minutes. Automate the management and provisioning of your network to increase efficiency.

Lower Costs

NFV replaces physical components with virtual. Fewer devices are required and equipment costs are lower. Less hardware, less time on site, and an overall reduction in operational costs.

ActivePort is at the forefront of NFV technology that is revolutionising the telecommunications industry

Reduce Operational Costs

ActivePort NFV replaces physical hardware, such as firewalls and SIP PBX’s, with virtual machines which simplify operations and remove the need for hardware devices. Because NFV runs on virtual machines (VMs), fewer devices are required, and equipment costs are lower. With ActivePort’s single pane of glass Management and Orchestration (MANO) platform, you can centrally manage and provision new sites and services without the need for onsite visits or additional headcount.
