Robust and High-Performance Security VNFs
The Clavister Security VNF (Virtualized Network Function) for telecom networks uniquely combines high-performance, scalability and carrier-grade features.
Leveraging the benefits of SDN (Software Defined Networks) and NFV (Network Functions Virtualizations), communication service providers are estimated to reduce operational costs (Opex) with 60% and Capital investment costs (CapEx) with 40%.
The benefits are attractive but moving from legacy networks to a more dynamic and complex Cloud environments can be challanging. The Clavister Security VNFs ensures that security is maintained also in the new generation of telecom networks without having to worry about hardware sprawl or performance bottlenecks.

Featuring Research by Gartner
In this newsletter from Clavister featuring and including research by Gartner you can read about how Virtualized Security together with Software-Defined Networks transforms the telecom business.
In this newsletter by Clavister, featuring research from Gartner, you can read about what drives adoption of Software-Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) within the telecom industry. Additionally the newsletter covers topics such as a recommendation of requirements that buyers of VNFs should consider and detailed information about how Clavisters VNFs address key challenges and opportunities in this transformational period.
The newsletter highlights the major drivers for adoption of SDN and NFV, including research indicating extensive adoption of the technology. Research cited in the newsletter talks about 70% of all Communications Service Providers (CSPs) having conducted Proof of Concept on SDN/NFV already by 2018, and that 50% among these will move toward implementation around the same period.
Additional insights into the benefits of SDN/NFV is also covered, including anticipated Opex reduction of 60% and Capex reduction of 40%, by using virtualized network solutions.
To ensure successfull migration to SDN/NFV the Communication Service Providers must evaluate and consider a number of key aspects when choosing Security VNFs, including:
