Unlocked Partners » MetaSwitch Networks

Mirantis and MetaSwitch are working to enable highly-automated deployment of support for the MetaSwitch Perimeta Session Border Controller -- the first VNF-based SBC -- with the Mirantis NFV Reference Platform. Perimeta SBC offers a session-based firewall with session and media components that enables carriers to defend their network perimeter against high-volume attacks while enabling continuous processing of legitimate VoIP call traffic.

MetaSwitch-initiated Project Calico aims to create a community-driven solution for delivering hyper-scale data centers where resources communicate efficiently and securely without the limitations of VLANs or overlay schemes. Project Calico is part of MetaSwitch's Neuron initiative toward intelligent network functions virtualization (NFV) for operators. Mirantis and MetaSwitch are partnering to enable rapid configuration and automated deployment of Calico with Mirantis OpenStack via Fuel Plugin, now certified with Mirantis OpenStack 6.

Community Fuel Plugins

Calico Fuel Plugin

The Calico Fuel Plugin provides seamless, scalable, secure Layer 3 Virtual Networking for Mirantis OpenStack (see Project Calico). By replacing OpenStack’s native networking model, Calico targets deployments where the vast majority of workloads only require L3 connectivity, providing efficient, easy to troubleshoot networking, without the complexity and inefficiency of overlay networking models.
