Flexible, Agile, and Scalable Delivery of Virtualized Network Services

Allot Service Gateway is a powerful and proven service delivery platform, providing a single point of integration in thousands of enterprise and CSP networks, for the deployment of Allot services ranging from advanced traffic visibility, security and policy control, to customer engagement and service monetization. Allot Service Gateway Virtual Edition (SG-VE) plays the same role in your NFV environment. It provides a high-performance service delivery framework deployed on commodity components and built to power Allot’s intelligence, security and personalization services as virtual network functions (VNFs) that operate seamlessly and consistently across your core network and into the cloud. With Allot Virtual Editions, you can deliver some or all of Allot’s market-leading services from a virtualized service delivery framework that is fully compatible with your current Allot deployments and with ETSI NFV-SDN architecture, giving you extreme flexibility as you plan expansions and new service projects, reduce costs, and accelerate time-to-market.

With Allot Service Gateway Virtual Edition you can:

  • Increase business agility by deploying Allot’s Layer-7 application visibility, policy control, charging, and security services wherever they will be most effective – at customer premise, network edge, cloud data center, or small-scale remote locations
  • Accelerate time-to-market by delivering some or all of Allot’s market-leading services from a virtualized service delivery framework that is pre-integrated with your NFV and SDN requirements
  • Reduce opex and capex with solutions based on Allot SG-VE that enable remote troubleshooting and software updates, lower cost of maintenance, “white-box” reuse, and full compatibility with existing hardware deployments
  • Generate new revenue streams and increase ARPU by using Allot SG-VE and VNFs to deliver personalized, on-demand services that can be deployed instantly and provisioned easily, resulting in increased retention, upsell and cross-sell.
  • Improve agility and lower costs of SMB and enterprise services by using vCPE hosted and orchestrated in the cloud, or hosted on premise and orchestrated in the cloud.
  • Position your network at the forefront of service innovation
