UbiScope Delivers Cloud-Based Network Services to South Korean Businesses

UbiScope created a packaged Network Services offering for their business customers, based on Sandvine’s Cloud Services Policy Controller. Installed on an on-premises appliance, Network Services gives UbiScope’s business customers insight into and control over their internet services. Plus, since the solution is virtualized, UbiScope can introduce new service components with the simplicity of a software update, letting them outpace the competition:



Webbing: Manageable Mobile Roaming for Global Businesses

Webbing has deployed the Sandvine Virtual Series in multiple datacenters around the world. The flexibility afforded by this virtualized solution means Webbing can quickly and cost-effectively
scale up deployments as required:



By Offering Policy Control as a Virtualized Service, ClearSky Achieves a World First

When ClearSky introduced the Total Traffic Manager as a virtual service, it became the world’s first virtualized network policy control platform–a significant achievement:



Strengthening Cloud Marketplace Offerings With Sandfvine

Tier-1 communications service provider (CSP) in Asia-Pacific uses Sandvine to bring cloud-based network services to their business customers:



Traffic Steering Engine

Sandvine’s Traffic Steering Engine solves the challenges that face communications service providers (CSPs) looking to deploy Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Service Function Chaining (SFC) at a large scale.

For example, operators may use SFC to intelligently steer relevant traffic through service functions like network security, parental controls, and traffic optimization solutions. Sandvine’s Traffic Steering Engine enables the deployment of these types of functions in Gi-LAN, Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), and fixed-line environments.

Unlike alternatives, the Traffic Steering Engine delivers carrier-grade scale and reliability in a completely virtualized solution, and is subscriber-aware, making the it the perfect enabler for today’s subscriber-centric network services. Sandvine engineered the Traffic Steering Engine to fulfill the proposed Service Function Forwarder (SFF) role of the IETF standard, as well as the proposed Traffic Steering Support Function (TSSF) from the ETSI/3GPP standards, making its function essential for operators interested in deploying NFV and SFC using industry standards:



Cloud Services Policy Controller

NFV allows for dynamic scale (up and down as required by the network load) and provides an effective multi-tenancy solution (that is, it allows many separate functions from many separate vendors, for potentially many different end customers to co-exist completely separately on the same hardware). Sandvine’s Cloud Services Policy Control solution leverages both of these capabilities:

  • Businesses typically experience peak load during the day, when consumer networks are relatively light. Virtualization lets the CSP use the same COTS hardware to provide services for consumers and businesses, simply scaling the various solutions up and down as the load shifts.
  • While a single piece of COTS hardware might contain many instances of the Sandvine Virtual Series (one for each distinct enterprise business), these instances are completely separate – it is impossible for any business to access the data or network management policies of another.

Business clients have high quality and service requirements (e.g., critical applications, multi-location telepresence, need for detailed reporting etc.). CSPs who use network policy control to offer these advanced services can grow revenue by delivering exactly what the business client wants:



ClearSky offers network policy control as a service

In February 2014, ClearSky Technologies announced the world’s first virtualized network policy control offering. This
important milestone was made possible by Sandvine’s PTS Virtual Series, the software-only SDN- and NFV-ready version
of our Policy Traffic Switch:
