Radisys hardware solutions seamlessly integrate with the OpenStack platform to enable enterprise virtualization and cloud integration. Enterprise applications can range from telco services to industry vertical solutions.
End-to-End Project Support
Radisys supplies hardware, software, and management tools, as well as telecommunications software expertise and systems integration services. Our expertise in systems integration and leadership in the open telecom ecosystem, combined with our history as a hardware manufacturer makes Radisys an optimal partner for turnkey open hardware and systems integration projects.
Open Hardware Platform Based on OCP Standards
- Radisys rack hardware and sleds are compliant with the CG-OpenRack-19 specification, which embraces Open Compute Project (OCP) principles for open rack-scale hardware specifications while providing enhancements for Carrier Grade (CG) telecom central office and data center environments.
- Radisys is an innovator in supplying compute and storage sleds designed to the same CG-OpenRack-19 standards, which provide telcos to choose solutions without proprietary vendor lock-in.
Alignment with SEBA (formerly CORD) Specifications
Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter (CORD™) has evolved into SDN-enabled Broadband Access (SEBA). This initiative supports many virtualized access technologies at the edge of the carrier network, including Passive Optical Networks (PON). Decades of involvement with CORD and the open ecosystem have provided Radisys in-depth knowledge SEBA, enabling Radisys to be a premier systems integrator for SEBA. In addition to our systems integration, we have also developed white box GPON, XGSPON and CPON OLTs used with the ONF SEBA architecture.
Cloud and IP Services
Optimize Resources and Rapidly Deliver New Services
As cloud services increase in complexity, service providers need more than open compute networking and switching resources to support cloud services delivery. Service providers need aggregated real-time monitoring of physical and virtual components across multiple datacenters, for optimal resource utilization. Our pre-integrated, powerful management software solutions provide pools of compute and storage resources that can quickly scale to meet virtualized processing requirements.
Our turnkey solutions also enable service providers to rapidly deliver new IP services in a scalable, SDN and NFV-enabled network while reducing network complexity and Capex costs. Achieve advanced load balancing and service function chaining, high performance data plane processing and complex traffic distribution.
Hardware Solutions Deployed at a Major Tier 1 US Carrier
The carrier was seeking an OCP based hardware platform to run an IoT text messaging application within its network with high scalability. The deployment needed to be accomplished within a few weeks and with year-end budget constraints.
The carrier installed and turned up 600 nodes of a Mesos Container Infrastructure in two weeks and successfully ran the IoT application utilizing our data center hardware platform powered with Intel Xeon processors. Radisys enabled the carrier to significantly reduce time to market for their IoT-based microservices from several months to a few days. The deployment accelerated the carrier’s service revenue opportunities. Radisys continues to be a strategic partner, serving as the carrier’s extended DevOps team.
Active in the Open Ecosystem
Robust Contributions and Thought Leadership
Radisys develops open source-based solutions for communication service providers and is both a thought leader and robust contributor in open ecosystems for hardware and software. The Open Networking Foundation (ONF), Open RAN Alliance (O-RAN), Telecom Infra Project (TIP), Open Compute Project (OCP) and the Open RAN Policy Coalition are ecosystems where Radisys has made and continues to make innovative contributions. Radisys has been at the forefront of moving these ecosystem projects towards production deployments. Radisys is particularly active in the Open RAN Policy Coalition, which promotes policies globally to advance the adoption of open and interoperable solutions in the RAN.
