Sandvine, a provider of broadband network offerings for fixed and mobile operators, will integrate its network policy control technology with Juniper Networks’ Contrail, a network virtualization and intelligence product for Software-Defined Networks (SDN). A key objective of SDN is to facilitate and leverage the abstraction of network functions and applications so that the control and operations of network service functions can be provided dynamically from the Carrier Cloud data centre, the Waterloo, Ont. company said in a release. Plans call for Sandvine to integrate its policy control technology with Contrail to improve system orchestration by automating traffic routing through network service chains, while enforcing subscriber- and application-based policies at points in the network.

The move will allow subscriber services to be deployed in a carriers’ distributed data centre at a reduced network cost, the firm said.
