This week at MWC in Barcelona, Citrix will join with Cisco and Intel to demonstrate dynamic service chaining.  The move to virtualization is well underway in the network and L4-L7 services are a key element to support Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and /Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and our Application Delivery Controller (ADC) is at the heart of it.

Citrix has long been at the forefront of providing L4-L7 solutions to enable the best application experience for end users.  Citrix has helped many of the leading cloud operators build their infrastructure to meet the demands for elastic and scalable solutions with our TriScale technologies.  Efficient and scalable service chaining is a critical capability for delivering application experiences over highly dynamic and elastic networks.

To address the challenges of simple service insertion in complex networks, Citrix has been working with Intel and Cisco  and contributing to the IETF service chaining group on the standardization of the Network Service Header Protocol (NSH). Come and see NSH in action with Citrix at the Cisco and Intel booths at MWC in Hall3, Stand 3D 30.

Reinforcing our long-standing partnership with Cisco, we are proud to join industry leaders as part of the ecosystem of network technology vendors driving the IETF standardization of NSH protocol.  We started off 2015 at CiscoLive Milan and here at our next stop on the world stage at the largest mobile industry event, Mobile World Congress in Barcelona March 2-5, we are continuing our ongoing collaboration and momentum, to support Cisco and Intel in our live demonstration unveiling the new industry standard that enables and simplifies dynamic automated service chaining and modifications: Network Service Header (NSH).

Our alliance continues to build innovative and unique solutions to bring new offerings across the software defined workspace. And, our networking solutions with Cisco are key to making it easier than ever for customers to move to the industry’s most advanced application delivery solution. Please visit the Cisco and Intel booth to see the NSH demo this week and, at our next stop on the world tour at Cisco Live Melbourne, March 17-20, where we look forward to sharing more business solutions that will help you move into the era of software defined workspaces.
