Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) is a major breakthrough in network function virtualization (NFV). When
asked where they have deployed NFV in production networks, communication service providers (CSPs) consistently name vEPC as one of the top answers. Why is that?
In order to maximize their processing capacity, CSPs virtualize a subset of their network applications, including
mobile edge computing (MEC), base stations (small/macro
cells) and the mobile core, because these systems use a
The mobile packet core builds the foundation of the core
network on which mobile CSPs offer IP-based services to
their customers. Implementing vEPC solutions can help
CSPs obtain the scale necessary to accommodate growing
numbers of subscribers and large amounts of traffic or
connections while controlling costs and improving on quality of experience (QoE). In the past, evolved packet core
(EPC) solutions were deployed on purpose-built hardware.
NFV enables operators to deploy EPC c
So what lessons can operators learn from the past experience with server virtualization? Beware of merely shifting costs from capital to operating expenditures. Be selective in virtualizing the right resources and functions driven by the business need, and not the technology lure.

Intent-based networking is the difference between a network that needs continuous attention and one that simply understands what you need and makes it happen. It’s the difference between doing thousands of tasks manually and having an automated system that helps you focus on business goals.
Cisco DNA is the open, software-driven platform that turns vision into reality. Virtualization, automation, analytics, and cloud, all in one architecture.
Because many SQL Server implementations are running on virtual machines already, the use of a hyperconverged appliance is a logical choice. The Dell EMC XC Series with Nutanix software delivers high performance and low Opex for both OLTP and analytical database applications. For those moving from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2016, this hyperconverged solution provides particularly significant benefits.

No matter how advanced data centers may become, they remain in a perpetual state of change in order to meet the demands of virtualized environments. But with the advent of software-defined storage (SDS) architecture, capabilities associated with hyperconverged technologies (including compute, storage, and networking), help data centers meet virtualization requirements with less administrator intervention at webscale.

Social networking, an increasingly mobile workforce, virtualization technology, cloud computing and more have affected every department in the enterprise, including IT. As technology continues to advance and the new reality is based on an infrastructure that includes physical, virtual, and cloud resources, IT departments need to find new ways of managing and securing this vastly different technology ecosystem. Read this white paper to learn the myriad of benefits that cloud-driven technology can provide, including reclaiming your IT team as the central nervous system of the organization!
Undoubtedly you are aware of network virtualization, but perhaps you’ve yet to hear a compelling case for it. If the extended network capabilities and simplified management enabled by network virtualization aren’t compelling enough reasons, data center security should be. To manage today’s coordinated and persistent security threats, which often come from within, data centers need to implement “Zero Trust” networking. Virtualization puts it within your reach. Discover why — download this free business case white paper now.

Traditional security measures such as network firewalls are no longer enough to keep an enterprise secure. With Red Hat Enterprise Linux, security mechanisms are incorporated and applied at the core of every solution, and security is extended to include all the open source packages that make up Red Hat Enterprise Linux. As a result, customers experience a higher quality of service.

Scalability has always been an important characteristic of enterprise storage systems, maybe the most important, since the rationale of consolidating storage assumes that the system can easily grow with aggregate demand.
In both legacy IT data centers and emerging private and public clouds, virtualization is becoming the norm. Through virtualization, organizations are realizing the benefits of scalability, agility and efficiency.
A new wave of application workloads and associated data traffic - related to virtualization, cloud, mobility, analytics, and social media — have placed unprecedented strain on the datacenter network and forced commensurate architectural and operational changes.
Business and IT leaders are looking to virtualization and cloud computing to deliver unprecedented agility for supporting a wide range of objectives, including cost management, increased mobility, higher application availability, and greater responsiveness to customer-related opportunities.
Many organizations that have realized the benefits of server virtualization are ready to move to network virtualization. By combining hardware and software resources and functionality into a single, software-based administrative entity, these organizations can reap the benefits of greater data center agility
