MWC '17: to Showcase Five Real-World NFV MANO Use Cases for Mobile Operators and Partner Solutions Highlight Ways to Accelerate Service Provider Transformation to Cloud-Native Network Services

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwired - February 15, 2017) -, the leading integrator of open source technologies for carrier-grade network virtualization solutions, today announced its planned activities at Mobile World Congress, the world's largest gathering for the mobile industry.

Event: Mobile World Congress 2017 
Dates: Feb. 27 to March 2 
Venue: Fira Gran Via, Barcelona Stand: 6J-8 

Among the various planned activities, will feature real-world use case demonstrations that show how mobile operators can accelerate their transformation to virtualized network services through network functions virtualization (NFV). has been on the forefront of helping mobile operators and other service providers achieve this transformation in two significant ways. First, is a founding member and a major contributor of seed code to the ETSI Open Source MANO (OSM) project that was introduced at Mobile World Congress in 2016. is also the first company to ship a commercial distribution of OSM (Release ONE code). Second, continues to innovate on the RIFT.ware platform, which is the industry's only solution for orchestrating and automating multi-vendor network services that is backed by a robust open source community.

To showcase progress in these areas, will feature seven solution demonstrations of the RIFT.ware and OSM platforms in concert with partner solutions and technologies. The descriptions of the planned demos are as follows:

Demo/PoC  Summary  Location
DevOps in Service Chains and 5G Network Slicing featuring ETSI Open Source MANO  A proof-of-concept demo showcasing OSM-enabled management, orchestration, and testing of network services setup, validation, and operation in a DevOps environment, both at design and run time. This demonstration features Intel, Netrounds,, Telenor, and Arctos Labs. Stand 6J8
Orchestrated NFV Performance Assurance  Showcase network performance assurance and service assurance given a hybrid physical and virtual network infrastructure. This demo will showcase end-to-end as well as segmented performance monitoring, and validate how physical-virtual hybrid services can be assured in the same manner as existing services utilizing only traditional physical network resources.
