AXC Extends Axiros Portfolio to Container Management for OSS and NFV

21 DECEMBER 2015 – MUNICH, GERMANY - Axiros, a leader in device management and IoT solutions for service providers, enterprises, and OEMs, today announced its new AXC container management platform that extends its leading position in device and service management and paves the way into SDN and NFV services.

“Regarding density, portability and elasticity, containers are far superior to traditional hypervisor-based virtualization and centralization technologies - a real game changer regarding cost effective NFV but also for decoupling and isolation of OSS functions into updatable and testable units,” said Gunther Klessinger, Founder and MD Innovation of Axiros. “With AXC, we are effectively providing our customers with provisioning, monitoring and general management of state and software for containers, as we do for millions of their real CPEs in the field.“

“AXC marks a quantum leap in the evolution of the Axiros portfolio,” said Alfeo Pareschi, CSO of Axiros. “Service providers and VARs in the Axiros software universe can now rely on the advantages of container technology as well as the wealth of tools included in AXC to deploy service management solutions which up to now were only available on gigantic and inflexible OSS infrastructures. Our customers now have access to all of this with the added benefit of single view integration from services to customer devices.”

AXC has been already successfully deployed in a major Tier 1 in Europe, to enable end-to-end service fulfillment and assurance for VoIP on large enterprises. The DevOps tools available in AXC enabled a streamlined deployment of the OSS functions built by Axiros over a wide range of different environments and systems on the business-critical infrastructure.

With its features, AXC becomes the Axiros reference platform to integrate with NFV solutions to deploy and control the virtual CPE functions and provide to service providers the expected benefits in terms of agility, scalability and reliability.

AXC main features include:

  • Containers design and management (supporting Docker and Systemd)
  • API design and management: SOAP and JSON/REST
  • API flow inspection through multiple containers
  • Performance management integration with ELK stack
  • DevOps with integration with leading repository management tools
  • Behavioral testing tools
  • Single repository for code, tests and documentation
  • Agentless deployment
  • Native integration with Axiros capabilities in device management
  • Ready-to-go high-level recipes, e.g. for enterprise VoIP solutions
  • Supports deep container nesting, e.g. for single-point root filesystem security updates

Axiros has been making waves in the device management, M2M and IoT space this year. It was recently recognized as one of five global 2015 Cool Vendors in IoT by Gartner, CIOReview chose Axiros as one of its 20 Most Promising M2M Solution Suppliers, and Axiros was shortlisted for the Broadband World Forum Awards for The Most Innovative Internet of Things Solution Award.
