UBiqube and Tech Mahindra Announce a Strategic Collaboration to Help Service Providers Achieve Accelerated Automation

Tech Mahindra selects UBiqube's orchestration technology for their VNF-Xchange program to accelerate operators' SDN/NFV transformation

DUBLIN and MUMBAI, India, Oct. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tech Mahindra, a leading provider of digital transformation, consulting and business reengineering services and solutions and UBiqube, a leading network and security orchestration software vendor, have joined hands to deliver next generation integrated SDN (software defined network) and NFV (network functions virtualization) solutions.

Through this collaboration, Tech Mahindra shall have access to UBiqube's orchestration technology for its Virtual Network Function (VNF)-Xchange program. Orchestration is the process of automatically programming the behavior of the network ensuring smooth coordination between the network's hardware and software to support applications and services.

Industries all over the world are moving towards greater automation, digitization and virtualization. However, the absence of widely accepted industry standards and the lack of integration between multi-vendor components and systems is slowing digitalization efforts of service providers. The collaboration between Tech Mahindra and UBiqube looks at addressing this technological challenge by enabling the service providers to accelerate their digitization/automation transition from legacy infrastructure to a highly versatile program by making network virtualization more efficient and seamless. 

"We are extremely excited to be part of the VNF-Xchange ecosystem driven initiative. UBiqube aims to accelerate the migration from legacy infrastructure to NFV, and to provide the service provider industry with an agile solution for network and security services process automation, which is a critical step towards digitalization," says Nabil Souli, CEO of UBiqube.

"Innovative technologies in network virtualization are dramatically creating opportunities for communication service providers to deploy more efficient and agile networks. The VNF-Xchange program is the industry's premier standards driven ecosystem, and we are very excited to collaborate with UBiqube to lead this transformation to help our customers realize the value," said Peeyush Goyal, SVP of Network Services, Tech Mahindra.

As a leading solutions provider for the telcos globally, Tech Mahindra is at the forefront of driving the technological changes, which are forcing the service providers to digitalize their networks, in line with the company's D.A.V.I.D (Digitalization, Automation, Verticalization, Innovation and Disruption) strategy. 'Digitalization' is one of key tenets of the strategy with aims at helping the client organizations to RUN Better, CHANGE Faster and GROW Greater.

Tech Mahindra's VNF-Xchange platform is a key part of this strategy which facilitates adoption of SDN and NFV solutions through pre-integration, pre-certification and validation of E2E (End-to-End) solutions in a reference environment realized through its partner ecosystem.

UBiqube's service management and orchestration technology contributes to the VNF-Xchange by enabling operators' SDN/NFV transformation and modernization through seamless integration of multi-vendor technologies. The MSActivator™, a DevOps enabled framework by UBiqube, realizes end-to-end services in an agile and flexible environment while the company's self-service management capabilities allow service providers or enterprise customers to orchestrate their networks through a single-pane-of-glass customer portal.

The VNF-Xchange, in collaboration with UBiqube, aims to significantly accelerate and ease the adoption of new SDN/NFV technologies. This aims at reducing the Network Solution rollout time with fully automated service orchestration lifecycle by around 30-40%.
