Wind River Helps Global Networking Equipment Vendor Make the Move to NFV

Using Titanium Server, Raisecom cuts time-to-market by 30%, testing and qualification costs by 20%, while ensuring 99.9999% network availability

THE SITUATION

Raisecom, a Beijing-based global telecommunications equipment manufacturer, wanted to develop new products based on Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to respond to demands from its customers for more flexible, adaptable, and scalable networks.


THE OBJECTIVE

Raisecom’s move to NFV-based products from special-purpose, dedicated hardware (switches, routers, firewalls, load balancers, etc.) promised to lower product development, testing, and qualification costs while accelerating time-to-market. However, Raisecom wanted to develop its first NFV product, small cell gateway functions, as quickly as possible to stay ahead of competition while ensuring it did so as cost-efficiently as possible.


HOW WIND RIVER HELPED

Raisecom, which lacked experience and in-house technologies for developing NFV products, turned to Wind River® and Wind River Titanium Server, the industry’s first fully integrated and full-featured NFV software platform. Critically, Titanium Server can guarantee that software-based NFV functions provide better than 99.999% availability and the same ultra-high performance throughput required by today’s broadband networks.


THE RESULTS

By using Titanium Server as the core technology for its NFV cell gateway, Raisecom cut product testing and qualification costs by 20% compared to testing and qualifications costs for traditional small cell gateway hardware. It also decreased time-to-market by 30%. Raisecom is also benefiting from Wind River Titanium Cloud, a diverse ecosystem of vendors with products validated as interoperable and optimized for Titanium Server. Overall, working with Wind River gave Raisecom invaluable initial experience in NFV technologies to power its momentum in this major new market.
