Titanium Server

Carrier Grade for Your Virtual Networks

Wind River® Titanium Server is the industry's first fully integrated and feature-complete network virtualization software platform, providing ultrareliability and exceptional performance efficiencies for telecommunications networks.

NFV Infrastructure of the Year

Enterprise server and computing technologies were not designed for the rigorous demands of the carrier network.

Titanium Server solves that problem by providing an application-ready software platform that runs virtual functions with carrier grade reliability and is built to support the intensive performance, reliability, and security requirements of the world’s most demanding computing and communications networks.

  • Flexibility: Scale your services up, down, in, and out—rapidly, deploying new services dynamically, when and where they are needed.
  • Performance: Maximize the number of subscribers you support on each server, so you minimize your operating costs.
  • Reliability: Keep your services up—always.

Titanium Server Overview


Titanium Server is suited to a wide variety of network virtualization applications, including:

  • Virtual customer premises equipment (CPE)
  • Virtual radio access network (RAN)
  • Virtual evolved packet core (EPC)
  • Virtual broadband remote access server (BRAS)
  • Virtual session border controller (SBC)
  • Virtual content delivery network (CDN)

Introducing Wind River Titanium Server CPE

A new two-server configuration for Titanium Server, perfectly nimble for deployments in customer premises environments.

Titanium Server CPE brings all of the ultrareliability and high-performance features of Titanium Server to a two-server configuration, making it the perfect foundation for high-density applications, such as a virtual business CPE (vBCPE).

Maximize the performance of your virtualized service by running it on Titanium Server's Accelerated vSwitch (AVS)

  • Run unmodified with VirtIO: Your VNF with a standard VirtIO network driver runs unmodified on AVS—no changes required to your code.
  • Leverage Accelerated Virtual Port (AVP): Improve your VNF's performance up to 9x by including the AVP Kernel Loadable Module (KLM)—no changes required to your code.
  • AVS Poll Mode Driver (PMD) for additional acceleration: For DPDK-based VNFs, boost your performance up to 40x by linking in the AVS PMD, which typically takes 15 minutes or less.

Download both the AVP KLM and the AVS PMD at no charge from the Wind River open source repository.



Titanium Server is supported by the Titanium Cloud ecosystem of validated hardware and software products from industry partners.

Titanium Cloud is the Wind River ecosystem of partners that provides a rich set of interoperable products and technologies for building out NFV on your next-generation networks.
