Amdocs partners with Fortinet and Versa Networks to deploy pre-integrated, extensible orchestration solution for Service Provider SD-WAN, SDN and NFV with advanced security services
Integrated solution deployed in Tier-1 operator delivering rapid time-to-market and monetization, while reducing deployment and operational costs
ST. LOUIS, Oct. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amdocs (NASDAQ: DOX), a leading provider of software and services to communications and media companies, today announced its collaboration with Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, and Versa Networks, innovator of a next-generation software platform that integrates cloud, networking and security services, to launch a new multi-domain, service provider SD-WAN, SDN and NFV orchestration packaged solution. Amdocs NFV orchestration is integrated with Fortinet’s advanced security services, the Fortinet Security Fabric and Versa Networks’ SD-WAN platform to empower service providers to securely offer their business customers the ability to rapidly and efficiently spin up and spin down virtual network functions (VNFs) across customer premises, data centers and the cloud. The solution can be easily integrated with any operations and business support systems (OSS/BSS), enabling service providers to quickly deploy and monetize their managed SD-WAN and security services, while reducing deployment and operational costs.
The packaged solution enables service providers to offer their customers Fortinet’s full range of advanced security services and deliver comprehensive threat protection by leveraging the capabilities of the Fortinet Security Fabric, which provides broad visibility, integrated threat detection and automated response to address today’s sophisticated cyberthreats. Fortinet VNF, which can be deployed at customer premises, data centers or public cloud, allows service providers the scalability to offer new revenue-generating services to enterprises of any size, small or large. Service providers can provide a flexible range of advanced security services, including application control, intrusion prevention, anti-virus, web filtering, mobile security, industrial control and sandbox services.
The Versa Networks’ Cloud IP platform enables partners and customers to deliver managed SD-WAN and SD-Branch service offerings for the WAN Edge. Versa’s SD-WAN integrates networking with full contextual policy management, analytics and infrastructure automation in a single software platform that can be deployed as a uCPE, bare metal or virtual, on-premises or in the cloud.
“Amdocs and its Open Network ecosystem partners, Fortinet and Versa Networks, are transforming service providers from the proprietary hardware networks of today to open software-centric networks that leverage cloud and IT technologies,” said Angela Logothetis, CTO of Amdocs Open Network. “Our SD-WAN solution reduces the time and risk of launching SD-WAN services, and delivers agility, automation and scale in SD-WAN operations, ensuring faster time-to-market, quick monetization, and differentiated customer experience. Together, Amdocs, Fortinet, and Versa Networks enable service providers to enhance their competitive positioning by transforming the business WAN-edge with software-defined networking, advanced security services and end-to-end orchestration, offering scalability and flexibility through managed SD-WAN and value-added services. The solution embraces Amdocs’ microservices architecture and is delivered under best practices such as DevOps and CI/CD for faster and continual enhancements of the services.”
“As service providers look to transform their networks to satisfy evolving customer requirements and demand, they’ve also come to expect their vendors to deliver flexibility and to seamlessly work with best-of-breed solutions,” said John Maddison, SVP of products and solutions at Fortinet. “The Fortinet Security Fabric’s open ecosystem and ease of integration with complementary technologies and services helps meet the most demanding customer requirements while providing better security and lower total cost of ownership. We’re pleased to work closely with Amdocs as a Fabric-Ready Partner to offer our joint customers the option to leverage Fortinet’s broad portfolio of advanced security and networking solutions, including Fortinet SD-WAN.”
“Refreshing the legacy WAN router estate at scale requires a seamless, automated platform for accelerating multiple deployments of a managed SD-WAN service, while lowering the total cost of ownership, simplifying implementation and enabling enterprise WAN-edge transformation,” said Atchison Frazer, Chief Marketing Officer for Versa Networks. “Our partnership with Amdocs delivers these benefits and more by enabling our service provider partners to provision on the fly, from one console, the full stack of Versa VNF services spanning cloud connectivity to network security to SD-WAN.”
