iVN will deliver scalable, secure and agile enterprise and cloud-based applications.

iPhotonix, an industry innovation leader for fiber-to-the-home technologies, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of the network functions virtualization (NFV) assets of Netsocket, Inc., a technology leader in NFV management and delivery. The addition of Netsocket’s NFV solution, which has been validated in some of the world's most demanding networks, strengthens iPhotonix’s networking portfolio for optical access deployments of GPON and Active Ethernet as well as traditional copper networks.

"iPhotonix is driving the advancement of open and emerging IP technologies," said Amir Elbaz, CEO, iPhotonix. "The new iPhotonix Virtual Network NFV platform will significantly enhance our offering with NFV, which plays a major role in helping traditional communications service providers migrate and harness the power of virtualization."

The iPhotonix Virtual Network (iVN) platform is providing scalable, secure and agile delivery of enterprise and cloud-based applications. Its tools will not only enable communication service providers to more quickly create network services but also to reduce time and costs of developing and managing those services.

The iVN platform offers functions such as performance monitoring, firewalls and end device management that run on lower cost commodity hardware than the typical expensive and complex proprietary equipment. Additionally, the iVN platform leverages an intuitive graphical user interface to build service templates and business rules to easily introduce and manage services.

"This acquisition accelerates the delivery of our value-add services strategy,” said Mr. Elbaz. “The industry's transition to NFV is a strategic element to the selection criteria of both enterprise and communication service providers as they evaluate future network architectures. Having a solution that enables service providers to deploy and orchestrate these network services in an NFV environment will be increasingly important and in some cases vital for their success.”

For communication service providers, managed services are crucial today when trends such as mobility, big data, social networks and cloud computing are increasingly demanded from customers. With a more dynamic network, service providers can not only add new services more quickly—in hours instead of weeks or months—but also rapidly increase and diversify their revenue streams.

The acquisition was completed on March 2nd, 2015, and the award-winning Netsocket development team will integrate with the world-leading iPhotonix development team at iPhotonix’s Richardson, Texas development center.
