Wind River’s New NFV Platform Boast Virtual CPE Deployments

Wind

Wind River introduces a new platform, Wind River Titanium Server CPE that can speed the deployment of early Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) use cases such as virtualized customer premises equipment (vCPE). By leveraging the Titanium Server CPE platform, service providers can deploy cost-sensitive NFV applications such as a virtual business CPE (vBCPE) on only two servers.

The enhancements of the Titanium Server portfolio (Titanium Server and Titanium Server CPE) accelerate performance, improve scalability, and simplify commissioning. The Titanium Server portfolio comprises commercial NFV infrastructure software solutions that deliver the carrier grade reliability required for telecom networks.

“Use cases such as virtual CPE are emerging as early applications of NFV that can deliver significant operational cost savings as well as improved deployment agility,” said Paul Senyshyn, vice president of commercial operations for networking solutions, Wind River.

Eminent Features

  • Titanium Server CPE platform helps service providers maximize CAPEX and OPEX savings via a new nimble two-server configuration with full carrier grade reliability.
  • Enhancements to the Titanium Server portfolio accelerate the performance of virtual network functions while improving scalability and simplifying commissioning.
  • Wind River will showcase Titanium Server and Titanium Server CPE-based solutions from customers and partners at Mobile World Congress 2016.

Each server runs the full set of carrier grade compute, control, and storage functions, while working to deliver best-in-class virtual network function (VNF) performance to maximize the number of users supported per server and thereby also maximize OPEX savings. At the same time, Titanium Server CPE helps service providers to maintain full carrier grade uptime for their vBCPE services, which enables them to minimize any revenue impact resulting from Service Level Agreement (SLA) penalties triggered by service downtime.

“As service providers evaluate the NFV benefits and opportunities possible today, Wind River is delivering solutions that can help the industry introduce new services, minimize costs, and maintain carrier grade reliability for business-critical services,” adds Paul.

Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem partners have also allied for the Titanium Server CPE launch follows additional vBCPE work from Wind River, such as the recently announced multifunction vBCPE reference design developed in collaboration with NFV software partners Brocade, Check Point, InfoVista, and Riverbed.

Additional Features

  • Dynamic CPU scaling
  • Increased system scalability
  • Support for latest high-performance network interface cards (NICs)
  • Virtual switch packet trace tool
  • Support for “QinQ” tunneling
  • IPv6 support for all interfaces
  • Bulk provisioning and automated deployment capabilities
  • Support for VNF access to hardware acceleration devices, including the Intel® Communications Chipset 8925 to 8955 Series

“Brocade is pleased to collaborate with Wind River in the delivery of the virtual business customer premises equipment (vBCPE) reference design,” said Michael Bushong, vice president of product management, software networking, Brocade. “By leveraging the accelerated virtual switch in the Titanium Server CPE platform, the Brocade 5600 vRouter aims to deliver best-in-class virtual routing performance—the key to maximizing the overall subscriber capacity of the vBCPE and advancing in the New IP.”

By using the Titanium Server portfolio as their NFV infrastructure platform, the telecom industry can enjoy the best of both worlds: the rapid service deployment typically found in enterprise networks as well as the carrier grade uptime and reliability mandated by telecom networks.
