Verizon pushes virtualization with VNS bundles
April 16, 2018 / Nathan Cranford
Verizon originally introduced a pricing model for its VNS platform last November as a way to provide network functions on an as needed basis. Verizon’s VNS help enterprises launch SDN solutions, which leverage the company’s open service provider ecosystem built on OpenStack. Verizon’s VNS Solution Bundles are pre-packaged service chains, which the company developed by working with Checkpoint Software, Cisco, Fortinet and Palo Alto Networks. The bundles provide enterprise orchestration and closed loop service assurance, which allow customers to “point and click” to enable SDN solutions, according to the company.
