LOW LATENCY, EFFICIENCY, SECURITY
5G is rapidly approaching and accelerating edge cloud opportunities such as virtual RAN (vRAN), multi-access edge computing (MEC), and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT.) As carriers and other critical infrastructure companies explore these opportunities, they need to ensure that the solutions they select will meet challenging requirements of the intelligent edge in areas such as security, ultra-low latency, telco-grade service uptime, small-footprint deployments, and streamlined operation.
Recognizing that no single open source solution has existed to address all these challenges, the Open Infrastructure Foundation is hosting the StarlingX open source project, which provides a fully featured open source distributed cloud that is ideal for supporting critical infrastructure applications and services at the network edge.
For organizations that require full lifecycle support and services around an open source solution, Wind River® provides Wind River Studio as a commercially supported version of StarlingX. With Studio, Wind River provides value-added services to ensure our customers’ success, using the most advanced open source edge cloud solution available.
We expect that the StarlingX project will accelerate the industry toward a common open source edge platform that spans a wide variety of use cases. We invite you to join this exciting, groundbreaking work.
