Radisys Offers T-Series Platform for Easy SDN and NFV Deployments
By Mandira Srivastava, TMCnet Contributor
Software-defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) are the new ways to design, build and operate networks.
In order to fulfill operators' high-performance requirements for SDN and NFV deployments, Radisys Corporation (RSYS), company enabling wireless infrastructure solutions, has announced its Telecom Cloud-ready T-Series platforms.
Radisys T-Series platforms are pre-configured with the latest Intel (News - Alert) silicon and integrated load balancing to meet operators’ high-performance requirements. T-Series platforms are a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS), open standards-based ATCA solution. The carrier-grade solution leverages merchant silicon, open source software and a broad range of third-party blades, allowing mobile operators to deploy a cost-effective, telecom-grade platform while avoiding vendor lock-in.
Gabriel Brown, senior analyst, Heavy Reading, said in a statement, “NFV, SDN and the telecom cloud are core components of the software-centric, programmable networks of the future, As operators start to pay close attention to the infrastructure layer, it is increasingly clear that commercial off-the-shelf, network-optimized x86 hardware such as ATCA, in combination with cloud management software, can deliver flexibility and agility without sacrificing telco-grade reliability and performance.”
The traditional enterprise solutions are not a good fit for the telecom industry. Radisys' new pre-configured T-Series platforms deliver a carrier-grade solution designed to offer the high-performance, long-life and five-nines reliability essential to the telecom industry.
Radisys' T-Series has been built with high-performance bladed architecture that allows telecom operators to migrate to SDN by decoupling the control plane and data plane within a single piece of hardware.
In the case of NFV deployment, operators can abstract the application from the hardware and this approach affords operators greater service flexibility, OpEx and CapEx savings and a faster time-to-market.
Radisys' Professional Services team will help the operators achieve efficient and seamless integration during their tiered platform integration and it is available at each phase to offer full-service consult and assistance.
