NFVTime is complete, service-ready, plug and play environment that expedites development and automates deployment and operation of NFV and cloud-native services. This solution includes service lifecycle management and operational tools for multi-service deployments.

With NFVTime, service providers can quickly and easily deploy scalable, tailored on-demand managed services, on and off-net.

Main Features:

  • Complete service environment for virtualized and containerized services for uCPE, IoT gateways & edge computing environments.
  • Large-scale, distributed deployments with centralized management & orchestration on any Arm-based whitebox.
  • Fully automated lifecycle management including , zero touch provisioning.
  • Optimized performance designed to run multiple services with high throughput even on low-cost devices.
  • Flexible deployment models support both local and centralized controller configurations with a standard, open northbound interface.

NVFTime OS

The heart of the NFVTime is a thin and robust NFVi-OS that turns any Arm-based white box, low or high resources, to a fully operational uCPE. Developers can take advantage of the small footprint and design optimized platform to extract superior performance. It is the perfect solution for developer and operators seeking to accelerate development and deployment of carrier-class solutions for business or metro environments.  

The major NVFTime-OS building blocks include:

  • Open vSwitch (OVS) is used as the virtual networking component.
  • Selected OpenStack components: NFVTime OS is based on various OpenStack components to allow support uCPE lifecycle, security and manageability of the uCPE.
  • Control plane apps provide enhancements for routing and forwarding of management traffic within the uCPE, as well as monitoring and testing for all traffic.
  • uCPE lifecycle management apps provide additional functions including security, uCPE health monitoring, home calling and remote upgrade agent.
