Any virtualized networking and compute resources

DriveNets Network Cloud provides a shared network infrastructure with tools for deploying, running and managing any network-centric service. From network-intensive to latency-sensitive, hosted applications can consume any virtualized networking and compute resources of the Network Cloud – anywhere, any time, and at any scale. DriveNets multiservice platform is the best hosting infrastructure to run compute and networking functions at the edge.

Any service, any port

Enables any service to use any resource of the virtualized network infrastructure

Edge cloud made simple

Combines networking and compute functions in edge sites

Automated service operations

Automates service lifecycle management

Multiservice Platform

DriveNets Network Cloud provides more than routing services. As a network-centric cloud infrastructure, it can host any service and give it access to, and control of, networking and compute resources through a Network Cloud API, anywhere on the shared infrastructure. This multiservice architecture supports containerized or virtualized network-centric functions

DriveNets Network Orchestrator (DNOR) enables the deployment, maintenance and monitoring of service instances from the core to the edge.

Network Cloud’s multiservice architecture enables:

  • Direct access to virtualized data (NPU) and control function resources (x86) to support services and service chains
  • Automated service lifecycle management
  • Optimal resource usage
  • Carrier-grade service anywhere on the network
