An innovative, open and proven approach to NFV

The HP OpenNFV Program provides communications service providers (CSPs), network equipment providers (NEPs) and partners the elements required to create a dynamic network environment that enables faster “trial and delivery” of new cloud-enabled and converged network services and innovations, while lowering capital expenditures, operating expenditures and risk.

HP OpenNFV Program

HP OpenNFV is not just technology architecture; it also incorporates industry intellectual property (IP), services, and partner programs for independent software vendors (ISVs), and relationships with NEPs and other applications developers. Taken together, HP ensures that CSPs are not alone as they make the transition to NFV and also supports them every step of the way in a proven, open environment to bridge both the IT/data center and network requirements.

HP provides:

  • Freedom of application choice: Through its leadership in standards, reference architecture and expansive partner programs, HP offers CSPs the ability to choose and transform in a way that best suits their needs.
  • NFV-ready cloud-enabled platforms: HP provides market-leading Telco-grade cloud-enabled platforms that can run CSPs’ multi-vendor NFV applications.
  • Reliable long term technology partner: HP is committed to leading the NFV transformation journey along with its clients.
  • Deep domain Telco expertise: With over 5,000 industry experts, HP provides dedicated software and services for the Telco Industry.

Partner Program

Through the HP OpenNFV partner program, we're building an ecosystem based on open standards and open source. This will enable CSPs to utilize HP technology and technologies from across the industry in an interoperable manner for a robust, end-to-end NFV solution that is open and provides choices. In addition, we've built the HP OpenNFV Labs to help operationalize this solution. The labs provide a multi-vendor environment to test that all the pieces will work together properly in the CSP's production environment.
