Fogg Mobile to Deploy Affirmed Mobile Content Cloud

Fogg Mobile, a Stockholm, Sweden-based mobile connectivity start-up, has turned to Affirmed Networks to handle network virtualization via the Affirmed Mobile Content Cloud. According to Fogg Mobile CEO and founder Carl-Magnus Stenberg, Affirmed’s virtualization solution will help his company realize a faster return on its investment, while also allowing it to quickly evolve its service offering to meet subscriber needs.

Fogg’s premiere solution is the Fogg SIM card, which facilitates borderless connectivity for mobile devices. The result is fast, easy access to 3G/4G data networks in Sweden, Denmark, UK, and Ireland currently, with more coverage expected in the future.

Affirmed Networks’ NFV technology includes not only the Affirmed Mobile Content Cloud, but also the AN3000 hardware platform and Acuitas Service Management System. Together, these offerings can significantly transform and advance the state of mobile data networks, while enabling value-added services, high performance, excellent scalability, high resiliency and content delivery capabilities far beyond that of more traditional vendor solutions.

Recently, Affirmed Networks partnered with VMware to improve its Mobile Content Cloud by adopting VMware’s Cloud Platform, leveraging its high performance, cloud-based infrastructure to deliver virtualized network functions. Meanwhile, VMware vSphere and VMware vCloud will handle automated provisioning and distribution of Affirmed’s virtualized packet and control plane processing.

In the case of Fogg Mobile, the start-up is deploying the Affirmed Mobile Content Cloud in conjunction with HP’s BladeSystem blade server infrastructure.

“Innovative service providers like Fogg need flexible and affordable ways to deliver compelling services to their subscribers,” said Hassan Ahmed, chairman and CEO of Affirmed Networks, in a statement. “By virtualizing their network infrastructure with our software and HP’s BladeSystem, Fogg’s cost per byte drops to a fraction of that of a more traditional network architecture. Additionally advanced service orchestration enables Fogg to drive innovative new services to their customers.”
