Tech Mahindra announced to open two 5G Centre of Excellence (CoEs) powered by Intel technology in Redmond, Washington, and Bengaluru, India.
The new CoEs will help communication service providers (CoSPs) optimize their capital expenditure on 5G migrations and accelerate new revenue-generating services that will lead the transformation journey.
5G networks will need data-service centric platforms to not only enhance connectivity but also empower industry stakeholders to use data for better decision making. 5G will require a change in the network’s anatomy to enable CoSPs to offer a wide range of digital service and SDN/NFV is the foundation to accomplish this.
The work in this CoE will provide for new support and acceleration of emerging technologies to be integrated into the new architectures, but more importantly develop new social and industry relevant use cases.
“We continue to build on our strategic partnership with Intel, collaborating to develop and co-create 5G solutions. 5G as an innovation platform will unlock unprecedented opportunities in every industry vertical,” said Manish Vyas, President, Communications, Media & Entertainment Business, and the CEO, Network Services, Tech Mahindra.
“We are poised to unlock new experiences for these industry verticals with 5G,” Vyas added.
The CoEs will be set up at Tech Mahindra’s Intel-enabled “VNF-Xchange Labs” and will focus on developing 5G virtualized radio access network (vRAN) solutions.
“We share a common vision with Tech Mahindra of enabling service providers around the world to accelerate the deployment of their 5G networks and roll out new services that are beneficial to our society. By utilizing flexible platforms based on Intel architecture and technologies, Tech Mahindra is helping reduce the time to market for CoSPs and offering a broad choice of agile solutions for the 5G future,” said Caroline Chan, Vice President, and General Manager, 5G infrastructure division, Data Center Group, Intel.
As an advisor for over 270 CoSPs, Tech Mahindra is currently engaged with multiple service providers globally on their network transformation journey.
