June, 2014: SunTec, as part of the NFV Management Ecosystem project, won the “Greatest Adoption of Frameworx” award from TM forum along with the project champions and other participants. TM Forum announced the Catalyst Award winners at TM Forum Live! on June 5th at Nice. The Catalyst was awarded for producing the most effective implementation of TM Forum Frameworx in use, demonstrating the value of the assets and encouraging wider industry adoption.
SunTec worked with AT &T and Telecom Italia and several vendors in the NFV Management Ecosystem catalyst. Exploring the new ETSI-led MANO standard, the Catalyst tested the new protocols designed to allow core network functions and service control functions AAA, PCRF and PCEF out of proprietary hardware and software. The catalyst enabled real-time, dynamic management of capacity, performance, quality of service and SLAs, with real-time billing and compensation using SunTec’s product suite Xelerate.
“Congratulations to all of our Catalyst Award winners. Their hard work is a testament to the dedication and leadership of our members.
