Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation has launched a solution to enable voice over LTE (VoLTE) for virtualised networks using TCS’ network function virtualisation (NFV) ConcertoTM platform. Digital technologies such as virtualisation and cloud are driving development of next-generation networks that are intelligent and programmable. In a world where smart-devices are growing rapidly and demand for mobile data is exploding, virtualised mobile networks help us maintain high end-user experience by improving service agility and scalability.
TCS is collaborating with Brocade, Metaswitch and Ixia, on Intel Xeon platforms to demonstrate the deployment and verification of VoLTE service in virtualised networks. This will help in creating new business opportunities, simplifying product development and helping customers deal confidently with adoption of network virtualisation. TCS’ NFV ConcertoTM platform integrates Brocade’s virtualised Evolved Packet Core (vEPC), Metaswitch’s virtualised Internet Multimedia System and Session Border Controller, and Ixia’s IxLoadTM Wireless, to successfully demonstrate voice over LTE service on a virtualised mobile network. This solution is deployed on Intel Xeon processor-based servers leveraging Red Hat’s OpenStack.
