The Smart Mobile Cloud
Partnering to Optimize Mobile Backhaul
Brocade and Coriant
With fast-paced application development changing the mobile network environment, carriers need to embrace agile adaptation in network design and deployment. Merging the advantages of both SDN and NFV delivers an effective solution for mobile carriers. SDN accelerates the speed of carrier network deployments while enabling more flexible interaction with distributed applications. NFV brings a more flexible application environment where services that previously required dedicated hardware can be defined on demand as virtual software entities.
As part of Brocade’s Strategic Collaboration Program, Coriant and Brocade have teamed in a Mobility Alliance to showcase a joint SDN/NFV solution. The Smart Mobile Cloud combines SDN-enabled mobile backhaul by Coriant with the Brocade Virtualized Core for Mobile (VCM) and Brocade vRouter to support end-to-end mobile connectivity on demand for individual carrier applications. Through this progressive network approach, carriers can rapidly deploy customer-specific mobile network slicing to support IoT applications, enterprises, and Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs). With the Smart Mobile Cloud, Coriant and Brocade enable mobile carriers to offer a new suite of services that appear as a customized, application specific mobile network deployed over a common infrastructure.
