Amdocs NFV Service Partner Program is focused on pre-integrating a set of VNFs and NFV infrastructure elements in order to simplify service orchestration, improve service time-to-market, and address end-to-end SLAs. The program has 21 partners including Juniper Networks, Metaswitch Networks, Red Hat and Connectem.
