Leading NFV Innovators Support Pure-Play Virtualization Model

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Sept. 03, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Overture today announced broadened industry support for pure-play NFV with the addition of five new members to the Harmony Partner Ecosystem. Harmony members help accelerate deployment of pure-play network functions virtualization (NFV) by ensuring that service providers realize service agility and operational efficiency in a purely open virtualized service delivery environment.

“When service providers virtualize their environments, they want the ability to choose best-of-breed VNFs, choose where to place those network functions — centralized, distributed, hybrid — and manage the VNF service life cycle quickly and efficiently as business requirements change,” said Brian Irish, Overture director of marketing. “We are excited to be working with these new members and our existing Harmony partners to provide the industry with even more options and greater flexibility for service virtualization.”
