Fogg Mobile Selects Affirmed Networks' Mobile Content Cloud to Virtualize its Network Infrastructure
ACTON, Massachusetts --(Business Wire)--
Affirmed Networks, the leader in the virtualization of mobile networks,
announced that Fogg Mobile has selected the company's network
virtualization solution, called the Affirmed Mobile Content Cloud™.
Fogg is a Stockholm, Sweden based start-up, founded in 2010. The Fogg
team created the Fogg SIM card, which enables borderless connectivity
for mobile devices to allow instant, hassle-free 3G/4G internet access
in Sweden, Denmark, UK, and Ireland, with a wider rollout to follow.
"Fogg offers a unique solution that we think will satisfy many users'
growing demand for ubiquitous mobile data access on tablets and other
data devices," stated Carl-Magnus Stenberg, CEO and Founder of Fogg
Mobile. "Affirmed Networks and HP presented us with a compelling
virtualization solution that will allow us to realize a faster return on
our investment, while also allowing us to quickly evolve our service
offering to meet our subscribers' needs."
Affirmed Networks' unique NFV technology - which includes the Affirmed
Mobile Content Cloud, the AN3000®, and the Acuitas Service
Management System&trae; - significantly transforms and advances the state of
mobile data networks and enables value-added services, high performance,
excellent scalability, high resiliency and content-delivery capabilities
that far surpass incumbent vendor solutions.
"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. "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"
