Advantech, ITRI, and Wind River Discuss Their MEC Solution

Service providers worldwide are aggressively pursuing multi-access edge compute (MEC) projects, because this application promises not only operational cost reductions but also significant opportunities to generate new revenue from new customers.

By bringing content and applications to data centers in the radio access network, MEC allows service providers to introduce new types of services that are unachievable with cloud-hosted architectures because of latency or bandwidth constraints. Through a collaboration with Advantech and ITRI, Wind River has enabled ITRI to deliver an intelligent mobile edge cloud, minimizing the requirements for mobile backhaul bandwidth while providing an ultra-low latency edge cloud platform. In this video, representatives from Advantech, ITRI, and Wind River discuss the solution.

Altiostar, Amdocs, and Wind River Collaborate on End-to-End vRAN Solution: New Services, New Customers, New Revenue

How to increase capacity, add new customers, and provide new sources of revenue? Extend the benefits of virtualization from the core network to the radio access network (RAN).

Virtualized RAN is the next step in the evolution of mobile networks. It promises to intelligently boost capacity, dramatically reduce costs, and enhance customer experience. It will also provide the flexibility and scalability that will be necessary to support future services and applications. Wind River, Amdocs, and Altiostar discuss the end-to-end solution they have built through collaboration.

Ribbon Gets 15x Improvement Running Advanced Media Software VNF on Titanium Cloud vs. "Vanilla" OpenStack

A key factor in determining the performance of virtualized services is the cloud management software that orchestrates the virtual machines, otherwise known as the Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) infrastructure, or NFVI.

One of the leading options for this function is OpenStack. But as an open source software project, OpenStack was not designed for carrier grade networks. To show the performance difference between unmodified or "vanilla" OpenStack and an optimized open source solution like Wind River Titanium Cloud™, Ribbon Communications tested the two different implementations with their virtualized Advanced Media Software. The results included a 15x performance gain using Titanium Cloud. Charlie Ashton from Wind River and Sanjay Bhatia from Ribbon Communications discuss the test and the results.

VMware and Wind River Collaborate Through ONAP to Demonstrate a Telco-Federated Network

In the telecom world, true greenfield opportunities are rare. Most operators who roll out new services face the challenge of implementing them on top of existing networks.

This topic is especially important for service providers exploring the new business opportunities enabled by edge compute. Applications such as smart stadiums, augmented reality, industrial IoT, connected vehicles, and HD video all represent opportunities to sell new kinds of services to new categories of customers, boosting top-line revenue and market share. These innovative new applications can’t be hosted on standard centralized IT infrastructure. They need a purpose-built edge compute platform, specially designed to provide ultra-low latency performance, comprehensive device-to-cloud security, telco-grade uptime, and support for small-footprint configurations. Typically, the ideal edge compute platform will be very different from the enterprise-class core infrastructure that is running in the service provider’s cloud data center, which is what the demonstration in this video will show. Cost-effective federation between distributed clouds is key to efficiently instantiating edge and core clouds based on cloud-agnostic abstraction. As you’ll see, VMware and Wind River® have joined forces to demonstrate the kind of federation that makes this possible. VMware and Wind River occasionally compete in the market, and this demonstration shows some of the benefits and necessity of “co-opetition.” We also demonstrate the use of ONAP to orchestrate multi-tenant services running across multiple clouds.
