Ribbons’ extensive Virtual Network Functions (VNF) portfolio consists of cloud-native VNFs that deliver scaleable, secure real time communications in the telco cloud:
Ribbon VNFs deliver on the true tenets of NFV supporting full virtualization, elasticity, scalability, automation and geo-distribution. VNFs can run on multiple different telco cloud virtualization infrastructures and hypervisors.
Ribbon VNF Manager (VNFM) performs full lifecycle management of the multiple Ribbon and third party VNFs. The VNF Manager interworks with management and orchestration (MANO) systems and virtualization infrastructure managers (VIM) in open standards-based NFV ecosystems.
Element management for Ribbon VNFs is provided by Ribbon's Element Management System, a best-in-class, unified operation, administration, maintenance and provisioning (OAM&P) solution.
