Delivers on Network Function Virtualization (NFV) from the perspective of virtual network function components (VNFC), service orchestration, dynamic function chaining and elastic deployment. Its modular architecture, low latency and high performance for both the signaling/control plane and the data/user plane data streams are the capabilities required to be selectively and intelligently in the content path. This is key to managing access, the user experience of the flow, assigning bandwidth/policy and developing new policies and services. It is agnostic to hypervisors and can be deployed in KVM and VMWare environments on COTS hardware with ESXi hypervisor and vCloud. It is orchestrated using OpenStack API.
