Key Takeaways:

  • VellOS is a virtualized Cloud exchange networking platform designed to provide Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) and to optimize connections between Clouds.
  • VellOS frees service provider networks to generate revenue through new Cloud services.
  • VellOS provides support for Sonus' FarSight and a revenue-generating NaaS portal application.

Sonus Networks, Inc. (SONS), a global leader in secure and intelligent Cloud communications, announced today the general availability of VellOS Release 8.0, an update to Sonus' virtualized Cloud exchange networking platform, delivering enhancements for manageability, flexibility and ease of service consumption for network resources. With this update, Sonus offers a Software Defined Networking (SDN) solution that simplifies the complexity of migrating applications to the Cloud.

VellOS is the leading Cloud exchange networking platform to integrate private, hybrid and public Clouds into one IT environment. Customers can tailor Cloud exchange networking services to deliver NaaS, MPLS WAN replacement and Cloud interconnect to major public Cloud providers. VellOS also simplifies network and application roll-out and optimizes access to data center hosted applications.

VellOS delivers support for two applications:

  1. An analytics tool for network and application performance using metrics from VellOS to provide enterprises with insight into network, computation and application interactions.
  2. A new, customizable, multi-tenanted web-based customer portal that allows service providers to sell, bring-up and grow enterprise customers by enabling self on-boarding, tiered-service selection and bandwidth on-demand.

VellOS was recently deployed by Internet Solutions, a pan-African telecommunications service provider in South Africa.
