ConteXtream, the leading Carrier-SDN solution provider, today announced that the company will be demoing ContexNet™, their Software-Defined Networking (SDN)-based network virtualization solution for service providers, at
“The proliferation of mobile devices, in conjunction with economic pressures, are requiring network operators to look for solutions that alleviate current network pain points and adequately prepare their networks for future challenges,” said ConteXtream CEO,
Today’s carrier networks are built using custom appliances that are physically wired together, configured in 1+1 redundancy and provisioned to handle the highest peak of projected traffic load within the region they are installed. This approach results in severely underutilized networks and limits ability for operators to innovate with new revenue generating services. By virtualizing the network, transitioning network functions to software running on standard, low-cost commercial-off-the-self (COTS) server hardware, carriers can operate more efficiently and gain higher resource utilization at lower cost, while also increasing the speed of delivery of new capabilities and services.
ContexNet enables network operators to create a service abstraction layer on top of traditional networks, accelerating their ability to deploy new services, facilitate greater mobility and maximize network efficiency. In addition, ContexNet allows service providers to scale services up or down and use local and remote resources on demand, giving the network operator greater control over service delivery and how resources are leveraged. Furthermore, the solution allows for a reduction in network

ConteXtream is a privately held software-defined-networking (SDN) company that enables carriers to deliver network capacity and functions in the same way cloud providers deliver applications effectively utilizing standard compute and storage. ConteXtream's SDN offering is carrier-grade and enables Network Function Virtualization (NFV) for various solutions deployed on carrier networks. Deployed by Tier-1 operators, ConteXtream's Carrier-SDN dynamically and elastically connects subscribers to services and enables carriers to leverage standard, low-cost server hardware and hypervisors to virtualize functions and services, while replacing costly purpose-built proprietary systems.
