Innovative Carrier-Class and Cloud Infrastructure Solutions Designed to Bring Any Infrastructure Application to Life for SDN and NFV
The end goal for communication service providers around the world is to find the best business cases to leverage Software Defined Networking and Network Functions Virtualization as a means to achieve a state of absolute flexibility to roll-out new services and generate new revenues, sooner.
Our mission continues to be one of helping CSPs find the right mix of hardware and software components that will work best for their infrastructure needs – for both legacy and transitioning SDN/NFV deployments.
OpenStack Cloud and NFVi
At the heart of NFV infrastructure is the integration of OpenStack as a means to provision your VNFs and services across deployed virtual machines. As an OpenStack Foundation sponsor, Kontron has tested its hardware with solutions provided by key distribution vendors including Canonical (Ubuntu), CentOS, Red Hat, Wind River (Titanium), among others.
This has helped launch a number of reference solutions and use cases developed by Kontron and its VNF partners.

We are experienced system architects who match our clients’ network application requirements with the right hardware and software solutions. By partnering with us, service providers and their ISV partners can enter new markets with greater speed, confidence and operational efficiency.
A large portion of our history is derived from long years of telecom experience designing commercial-off-the-shelf hardware used for carrier grade networks. While the requirements for all things carrier grade have not disappeared, the new cloud-based technologies to achieve them have been turned upside down.
What We Can Do For Service Providers
Backed by a growing catalogue of VNF partners and a sound foundation in carrier cloud OS solutions, Kontron is the ideal partner to help CSPs work out the hardware and software white box solutions they require. We believe in open source solutions running on standard x86 or ARM based server hardware that avoid that “locked-in” scenario and ensure optimal interoperability with other vendor offerings.
