Outsource your netwroking appliances to the cloud
For the customers of the T-NOVA platform, significant benefits can be achieved by outsourcing required network-level functions to the T-NOVA virtualised infrastructure, instead of employing specialised equipment at their premises. Up to now, operations such as firewalling, DoS protection, media adaptation, proxying/caching, application classification etc. have been mostly undertaken by separate dedicated equipment purchased and installed. In T-NOVA, all these tasks can be off-loaded to the service provider and actual ownership of network equipment from the customer side can be avoided. In this context, the offering of network service bundles (connectivity + functions) shifts the cost of customers from CAPEX to OPEX which allows finer control of expenditure and avoids costly equipment acquisition and maintenance. Customers can be offered the pay-as-you-go model and thus gain the capability to build up cost according to the actual consumption of NF resources. Inexpensive technology upgrade is also facilitated; algorithms for operations such as security/protection and application classification are continuously evolving. In the case of proprietary equipment, following this evolution would require a costly vendor-specific firmware upgrade – in the T-NOVA architecture this is realized by a software update of the in-network function.
