The CloudBand™ Ecosystem Program is the first open community of members working together to advance NFV. We offer a workspace for members to onboard applications, test, learn and share knowledge. Join like-minded innovators who have come together to progress their ideas, develop new use cases and help service providers get to NFV faster.

CloudBand, Red Hat and Intel: Leading the Journey to Power NFV Operations

Openness and collaboration is key to making NFV a reality. Alcatel-Lucent is working with two great companies Red Hat and Intel, to make NFV deployable at scale. Listen to Dor Skuler and representatives from Red Hat and Intel discuss this joint collaboration.


Check out our featured use case or read the rest of our use cases to learn how we are using NFV to transform the network.

Lifecycle management of a unified communications application in a NFV environment

Alcatel-Lucent and CloudBand™ Ecosystem Program member Quobis® showcase Sippo™ — a resilient cloudbased unified communications (UC) application. Using CloudBand, carriers can quickly introduce new services such as Sippo to their users, provide self-healing services, scale the application capacity in line with demand, and upgrade or replace services to quickly react in a competitive environment. The Sippo application links into the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) securely and automatically during the deployment process and works with IMS to interconnect Consumer & Business VoIP, Enterprise UC, and Voice over LTE (VoLTE) endpoints. This use case demonstrates that service providers have the opportunity to leverage Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to quickly launch and test new services with low risk.

Transformation for NFV II

Transformation for NFV II

Network Function Virtualization has affected everything in the Telco industry over the past several years – both on the Carriers side as well as the Vendors angle and to everything in between – and all this has happened with only the beginnings of commercial deployments starting to make themselves known.
