VNF License Management

Centralize license management to automate the entire VNF lifecycle.

Deliver myriad virtualized services through personalized, on-demand licensing models.


Moving from traditional, hardware-based to software-defined services that can be delivered through an on-demand business model can pose a challenge for multivendor service chains and can increase the probability of hidden costs.
