Mobile service providers are turning to Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to quickly scale-up network capacity and scale-out the availability of network elements in a Telco Cloud, without the need to invest in discrete, proprietary physical network elements. At the same time, service providers require the solution to be "carrier-grade , with highly-available components and in-service upgrades, so as to provide a  five-nines  environment. 

In this presentation, we will talk about the components of the mobile packet core and how Openstack and OpenContrail are used to create one of industry's first virtualized SGSN/MME (Mobility Management Entity) solution built for cloud environments, and that runs on standard X86 servers. We will explain how we have made the solution a) optimized for cloud/virtual, b) carrier-grade , and c) talk about its deployment in one of the largest carrier's lab environment for a trial.
