Wind River to Showcase Edge Cloud Compute Applications at Mobile World Congress
ALAMEDA, Calif. – Feb. 20, 2019 – Wind River®, a leader in delivering IoT software to critical infrastructure, will be demonstrating edge cloud technologies with its partners from across the Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem at Mobile World Congress taking place February 25-28. Showcasing a variety of use cases, Wind River Titanium Cloud virtualization platform will be featured in demonstrations at partners’ booths.
Through the collaboration of industry-leading software and hardware companies, the Titanium Cloud ecosystem ensures the availability of interoperable standard products optimized for NFV deployment with Titanium Cloud to help accelerate time-to-market for service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs). The Titanium Cloud ecosystem program currently includes more than 50 members.
“It is exciting to work with fellow industry leaders across the ecosystem to showcase innovative edge cloud computing solutions," said Paul Senyshyn, vice president of telecommunications at Wind River. “By validating and pre-integrating their offerings with the Titanium Cloud virtualization platform, our ecosystem can deliver optimized solutions that are ready for deployment in live networks to service providers and TEMs.”
Demonstrations with ecosystem partners include:
Amdocs: This demo highlights the Intel TrueVR application that utilizes Titanium Cloud with Amdocs NFV powered by ONAP service orchestration to enable service providers to deploy services faster, at lower cost, with guaranteed uptime to extend the benefits of virtualization form the core the edge. Demo location: Amdocs booth Hall 3 Stand 3G10.
Altiostar: This demonstration from Altiostar includes one of the industry’s first virtualized 5G cluster, highlighting vRAN utilizing mmWave. Demo location: Altiostar booth Hall 2.1 Stand 2.1C45Ex.
Blue Planet, a division of Ciena: A showcase of 5G orchestration and automation, this demo features Blue PlanetÒ multi-domain service orchestration from Ciena, edge cloud infrastructure from Titanium Cloud, CDN technologies, and a data center running vEPC technology to show an end-to-end 5g environment. Demo location: Ciena booth Hall 2 Stand 2J51.
Intel: Intel’s FlexRAN reference architecture is providing connectivity to a variety of demonstrated use cases at the Intel booth. These FlexRAN based demos are using Titanium Cloud to deliver reliable service uptime, security, and low latency communication. Location for Intel demos: Intel booth Hall 3 Stand 3E31.
Kontron: Kontron’s commercial-off-the-shelf hardware platforms combined with Titanium Cloud demonstrates how a branch office deployment can be done in a more cost effective, easier to operate and flexible way, with ultra-reliability, performance and security. Demo location: Kontron booth Hall 5 Stand 5H41.
Lenovo: Combining technologies from Lenovo and WiZR AI-enabled video analytics along with Wind River Titanium Cloud, this Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) demonstration showcases how Lenovo’s edge servers can help monetize network assets and accelerate time to revenue. In this MEC use case, a high bandwidth application (eg: WiZR video processing) is migrating to the edge of the network, closer to where data is created and illustrate how service providers can more effectively offer new services. Demo location: Lenovo booth Hall 3 Stand 3N30.
Mavenir: A leader in transforming mobile network economics, Mavenir will be showing demonstrations of its packet core solutions which will be powered by Titanium Cloud as the NFV infrastructure platform. Demo location: Mavenir booth Hall 6 Stand 6D40.
RIFT: RIFT.ware showcases Zero Touch Provisioning of a Carrier Grade Geo-Redundant Launch with Palo Alto FW VNF in Active/Standby mode across Multi-Cloud Wind River Environment. Demo location: RIFT booth Hall 8.0 Stand 8.0H16.
Sandvine: Highlighting Sandvine’s cloud-ready network policy control solutions with Titanium Cloud, this demo shows how business intelligence can be added to a network, as well as increase revenue, reduce network costs, and improve subscriber quality of experience. Demo location: Sandvine booth Hall 5 Stand 5F31.
In addition to the work we are doing with our partners and customers, the Wind River meeting room will also have a demonstration available, by appointment only, of StarlingX, a fully-featured open-source cloud for the distributed edge based on seed code from Titanium Cloud.
The Titanium Cloud portfolio comprises a fully integrated, reliable, and deployment-ready virtualization platform that enables service providers to deploy virtualized services faster, at lower cost, and with high uptime. Titanium Cloud provides an ideal software infrastructure for the rigorous demands of critical infrastructure applications such as telecommunications networks and industrial control.
