iconectiv Joins Linux Foundation’s Open Source Networking Collaboration Project, Including Transition to NFV

BRIDGEWATER, N.J.–()–iconectiv, an authoritative partner of the global communications
industry connecting more than two billion people every day, today
announced the company has joined The
LF Networking Fund (LFN)
, a new open source networking initiative
created by The Linux Foundation. The focus of LFN is to increase
collaboration and operational excellence across networking projects,
including Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV),
to help deliver a new generation of services.

As a member of LFN, iconectiv brings more than 30 years of experience
performing critical, behind-the-scenes work for service providers and
related telecom firms, enabling the transition from physical to virtual
network functions. Through its industry-leading Common Language
solution, iconectiv has already created unique codes for more than 1,000
virtual functions, demonstrating its ability to assist service providers
in the transition to Network Function Virtualization (NFV).

“The move to hybrid networks that combine physical assets with virtual
functions promises enhanced operational efficiencies and speed-to-market
for new kinds of services for customers globally,” said Alex Berry,
Executive Vice President, Information Solutions, iconectiv. “The Linux
Foundation understands the successful integration of these two worlds
will require the collaboration of network architects and operators. We
intend to offer our intimate knowledge of interconnection and network
and operations management to help ensure the full rollout and adoption
of hybrid networks.”

Through LFN the Linux Foundation has developed a cross-collaboration
initiative that brings together 100+ member organizations from across
the globe. These organizations consist of networking and enterprise
vendors, system integrators and cloud providers working across nine of
the top ten open-source networking projects focused on all aspects of
the network stack, including NFV, SDN, data IO speed, automation,
orchestration, and predictive network analytics. The foundation expects
this effort to build harmonization between open source and open
standards, bringing together a range of emerging, network-dependent
initiatives that will drive enhanced operational efficiency through
shared development and deployment best practices and resources.

“NFV is an important, highly complex and constantly evolving initiative
for the industry; an open source NFV ecosystem developed by the world’s
leading telecom experts, that integrates across the stack, benefits the
entire industry,” said Arpit Joshipura, general manager, Networking, The
Linux Foundation. “iconectiv brings invaluable expertise regarding
network and operations management and the interconnection of global
networks. We welcome their participation in this collaborative industry
