HFR Chooses WebNMS to Deliver Carrier Ethernet Mobile Network Solutions with End-to-End Management

HFR, Korea’s representative vendor of wired and wireless network equipment, and WebNMS, a division of Zoho Corp. and a leading global provider of multi-vendor, network orchestration solutions, announce their collaboration in an end-to-end, MEF CE 2.0 certified solution for mobile backhaul. The HFR HA-800 series of networking systems has integrated the WebNMS Carrier Ethernet Management Solution to provide comprehensive management of high performance services from client to core.

The HFR HA-800 series combines the MEF CE 2.0 certified HA-805 10GbE Network Interface Devices (NIDs) as well as the HA-821 and HA-822 Carrier Ethernet aggregation switches to build complete mobile backhaul networks that are cost effective, simple to manage and ready for evolving high performance business and 4G services. The entire series leverages the WebNMS Carrier Ethernet Management Solution to deliver flexible MEF CE 2.0 service management. Built on the flexible WebNMS Framework, the WebNMS CE Solution delivers end-to-end service provisioning and activation, fault management, performance management, security management and QoS management.

“We chose WebNMS for its comprehensive suite of management capabilities and its flexibility in adapting to our unique features and customer requirements,” said Peter K. Cho, vice president of HFR, Inc. “HFR quickly delivered our end-to-end mobile backhaul solution with the WebNMS network and service management solution that integrates service activation, assurance, performance and fault management with powerful and intuitive visualization tools.”

Carrier Ethernet services are widely deployed and quickly growing in number and performance. In this dynamic environment, efficient service provisioning, activation and management are essential to control operational costs. As the demand for dynamic services grows, automating these functions under SDN orchestration will become increasingly important. With WebNMS supporting the HA-800 series, the end-to-end solution is ready to help transform service provider networks away from inefficient, operational silos to a unified and scalable orchestrated service delivery platform. This transformation will simplify service delivery and lower provider operational costs.

“The WebNMS Carrier Ethernet Management Solution provides a complete, standards-compliant network management platform to manage both network elements and flexibly defined services,” said Prabhu Ramachandran, director of WebNMS. “The HFR end-to-end solution demonstrates the power of network management unification which we see as a prerequisite to network automation.”

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

The speed of software changes in growing and large scale rapid-paced DevOps environments presents a challenge for continuous testing. Many organizations struggle to get this right.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand. Docker Containers are the next quantum leap - Are they?! Databases always represented an additional set of challenges unique to running workloads requiring a maximum of I/O, network, CPU resources combined with data locality.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
