Sentinel VoLTE is based on Rhino Sentinel, which is not bound to a specific hardware architecture and supports the major virtualization technologies.
VMWare is certified as part of the latest release of the Rhino platform. Rhino applications have been deployed in a virtualised environment in a number of live deployments. A Rhino cluster can also be deployed using a mix of virtualised and non-virtualised instances.
The diagram below shows a cluster of virtualised Sentinel VoLTE (MMTel and SCC-AS) and other applications installed in a non-virtualised mode, all in a single deployment.
|We believe a cloud deployment model is well suited for VoLTE services, as it will help manage costs and service demand through hardware utilisation, increased flexibility, and elastic scalability.|
Sentinel VoLTE can be easily scaled in a data centre or a private cloud environment.
The virtualised Sentinel VoLTE enables multiple independent configurations as well as strong isolation between independent services. This can be used to provide a controlled architecture where priority is given to one service over another.
