This is our first post, the start of a long journey. At WeHostVoIP we are preparing new products to help you, service provider, to earn more.
Every service provider knows, it needs to provide new services every month. The competition on access is becoming so high that, only with new services a company can survive.
Why us. We are bringing to the table a new concept, the VNFs.
Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) are virtualized network services running on open computing platforms formerly carried out by proprietary, dedicated hardware technology. Most VNFs are run in virtual machines (VMs) on common virtualization infrastructure software such as public and private clouds.
VNFs can be linked together like building blocks in a process known as service chaining. The application provisioning process—is simplified and shortened using VNF technology.
VNFs can help increase network scalability and agility, while also enabling better use of network infrastructure resources. Other benefits include reducing power consumption and increasing security and available physical space, since VNFs replace physical hardware. This also results in reduced operational and capital expenditures.
Check our table below comparing appliances versus VNFs.
|Runs in physical proprietary hardware||Runs in open virtualized environments|
|Complex multi-funtion||Simple single-function components|
|Hard to provision||Easy to provision|
|Hard to decommission||Easy to decomission|
|Hard to integrate||Easy to Integrate|
|Configuration thru interface||Configuration on insantiatiation|
|Control using the interface||Control using REST APIs|
|Generates a lot of waste in the EOL||Eco-friendly|
|High power consumption||Low power consumption|
|Low agility||High agility|
|Expensive, buy all functions||Inexpensive, buy the function you want|
|Deploy locally||Deploy using Cloudify, Terraform, MANO|
This is the beginning of the battle, the first two VNFs are ready. The first one is the MS Teams Gateway capable to connect an MS Teams tenant to a SIP trunk. The second is our Antifraud Solution for ISP. There are two more in the software kitchen being cooked for you.
As this is our first post, thanks for reading! I hope we can start a long journey with you in our side.
