Overture has created an ecosystem of hardware, software, and services partners focused on accelerating a communication service provider’s automation and virtualization initiatives at the metro service edge.
The Harmony partner program is a pillar of the open environment that Overture believes to be essential for the realization of software-defined services (SDS). It allows service providers to select best of breed components and avoid single vendor proprietary systems, while also decreasing their project risks and accelerating deployments.
At Overture, we believe a strong and open ecosystem is crucial for the success of NFV-based services. CSPs are moving quickly out of proofs of concept. Each of the Harmony partnerships are being driven by real-world customer deployments.
"Our customers have been very clear with us: a multi-vendor ecosystem is crucial for cloud, virtualization, and software-defined service solutions. They are demanding open architectures, vendor cooperation, and open interfaces. This has led us to introduce our Harmony program, an ecosystem of partners committed to working together on behalf of our customers."
