July 29, 2015 – Hod Hasharon, Israel – Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: ALLT), a leading global provider of intelligent broadband solutions that empower communication service providers to optimize and monetize their networks, enterprises to enhance productivity and consumers to improve their digital lifestyle, announced today its participation in the HP OpenNFV Partner Program, an initiative designed to help the telecommunications industry accelerate the development and delivery of new and innovative services through the virtualization of core networks and network functions.

 

As part of the program, Allot will be offering its virtual Traffic Detection Function (vTDF) and security services on the HP OpenNFV platform. The integration demonstrates service enablement and delivery for virtual security services that are deployed over the HP OpenNFV cloud environment platform. Following the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) evolving standards, Allot’s vTDF together with Allot’s Element Manager (EM) enables dynamic creation and management of pre-integrated security services such as Allot’s DDoS protection and content-filtering.

 

 “Allot’s virtualized solutions enable service providers and enterprises to enjoy high performance and scalability while minimizing capital and service costs. Operators are excited to be able to roll out new security services with reduced time to market at lower operational and capital expenditures, providing a great opportunity to monetize their data,” said Jay Klein, CTO & VP, Allot Communications. “We are excited to partner with HP and leverage the great value the HP NFV architecture offers with its approach to accelerate the design, proof-of-concept, trial and deployment of new cloud-enabled network services and innovations.”

 

“HP is partnering with technology innovators who demonstrate they can effectively leverage the HP OpenNFV platform to offer value added services to organizations,” said Werner Schaefer, vice president, Network Functions Virtualization, HP. “Allot Communications solutions provide great value to the OpenNFV ecosystem”

 

The Allot Service Gateway Virtual Edition (SG VE) provides vital service enablement capabilities including traffic detection, analytics, policy enforcement and charging. The SG VE can be deployed anywhere in the network or the cloud to facilitate new use cases and services to mobile, fixed and converged environments.

 

Allot’s integration with HP OpenNFV components such as HP NFV Director and HP Helion enables onboarding of Allot’s virtual solutions in the HP ecosystem environment. This transition from proprietary equipment installed in a specific topology location to Virtual Network Functions – that can be distributed throughout the network and uniformly managed – enables operators to:

 

  • Simplify and automate service deployment, provisioning and configuration
  • Add elasticity to the network for more fluid and efficient allocation of resources
  • Leverage distributed cloud infrastructure to implement complex use cases with ease
  • Reduce time-to-market for consumer and business services
