WATERLOO, ON, July 13, 2016 /CNW/ - Sandvine, (TSX:SVC) a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for fixed and mobile operators, today announced that it has joined the Cisco® Solution Partner Program as a Solution Partner. As a member of the Cisco Solution Partner Program, Sandvine is able to quickly create and deploy solutions to enhance the capabilities, performance and management of the network, including capturing value in Internet of Everything (IoE). IoE continues to bring together people, processes, data and things to enhance the relevancy of network connections, and is a key area of focus for Cisco.
"Joining the Cisco Solution Partner Program enables Sandvine's Virtual Series products to be deployed on the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) which serves as yet another channel for us to deploy our network policy control solutions virtually, for all of our use cases, including IoE" said Tom Donnelly, Chief Operating Officer, Sales & Global Services, Sandvine.
Supporting industry open source and open standards, the Sandvine Virtual Series delivers all the features of the traditional Sandvine platform as an elastically-scalable virtual network function (VNF) for NFV-ready networks. NFV is a carrier-led effort to move away from proprietary hardware, motivated by the desire to dramatically increase agility, enable faster service launches, and dramatically reduce the cost of deployment.
The Cisco Solution Partner Program, part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem, unites Cisco with third-party independent hardware and software vendors to deliver integrated solutions to joint customers. As a Solution Partner, Sandvine offers a complementary product offering and has started to collaborate with Cisco to meet the needs of joint customers.
