The HPE OpenNFV certification of Redknee Unified comes at a time when Redknee continues to invest in its NFV capabilities, providing clients with a best of breed solution that is adaptable and can be used on multiple NFV platforms to enhance operational efficiency and to support new revenue streams and business models.

Redknee Unified and Redknee PCS are cloud and NFV ready and offers clients ‘one click deployment’ for fast integration with IT infrastructure and core networks.

Redknee is committed to innovation on virtualization and driving the adoption of new cloud technologies to enhance business performance and to support new offerings, revenue streams and business models. Redknee’s solution brings increased scalability with real-time charging and policy applications available as virtual network functions to meet the evolving needs of communications service providers (CSP’s) as they evolve into digital service providers (DSP’s).

The HPE OpenNFV Program provides an open standard–based Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) reference architecture, offering CSPs ready-to-deploy solutions that can enable the transformation from legacy networks to NFV. Redknee joins over 83 partners who have now completed validation of their solutions on HPE’s NFV System.
