Ensemble Connector

The power of choice

At its core, our Ensemble Connector is a highly scalable, high-performance virtualization platform for hosting multi-vendor VNFs. It enables pure-play virtualization: open software running on open commercial off-the-shelf servers. This eliminates vendor lock-in so that service providers are free to mix and match best-of-breed software and hardware. Pure-play virtualization means total choice – choice of software, hardware and where to locate functionality to best suit the business needs of the provider.

Scalable virtualization

Our Ensemble Connector delivers advanced SDN-enabled programmable traffic steering and a powerful Carrier Ethernet network interface. It operates on any white box or can be deployed on our high-performance FSP 150 ProVM edge compute nodes for a variety of value-added features and deployment options. When hosting Ensemble Connector on our FSP 150 ProVMe or ProVMi, service providers can seamlessly grow their business from connectivity services to managed enterprise IT services.
