AdaptiveMobile joins Chipzilla's SDN club

Dublin-based AdaptiveMobile has joined Intel's Network Builders software defined networks-network function virtualisation (SDN/NFV) program. The company says its participation in the program will deliver “NFV-ready service assurance”.

AdaptiveMobile's announcement notes that its software was already designed to run on generic Intel-based platforms rather than custom silicon or specialised packet processors.

“We are also hypervisor agnostic and have live deployments running on multiple hypervisor technologies including VMware and KVM,” CEO Brian Collins notes in the release.

The 2003-founded company focuses on threat detection and intelligence, mobile security products, and a cloudy security-as-a-service offering.

Intel has attracted nearly 80 vendors and organisations to the Network Builders program, including major names like Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya, Dell, Brocade, HP, NEC, Oracle and VMWare.

NFV has become the flavour of 2014, following on from a couple of years of SDN enthusiasm. It refers to taking functions unrelated to packet forwarding – security a prime example – off the switch/router infrastructure and pushing it to VMs running on white-box servers. That's been a boon for Chipzilla in the form of server sales. ®
