Telco Cloud

An on-premises Telco Cloud under full control of the operator, covering the end-to-end use case -from the physical network fabric to the orchestration- with open technologies for the most recent innovation, best interoperability, and lowest TCO!

Key Principles

We believe in the following principles for any Telco Cloud implementation: We believe in the following principles for any Telco Cloud implementation:

  • Open technologies, as the main enabler for a vendor-agnostic, future-proof, standards-based, cost-efficient deployment.
  • On premises deployment, for achieving the desired performance with EPA techniques, functionality and proximity to the users.
  • Horizontal NFV model, as the only model that transfers the control to the operator, ensuring maximum NF vendor compatibility not giving away the know-how.

Key Open Technologies

The following open source technologies represent the best levels of efficiency, matureness, innovation, performance and functionality.

  • Network Hardware and Software
    • Whitebox Networking: High-capacity, open specification switches for any function in the network.
    • Network Operating Systems: A mix of open and proprietary software for disaggregated Whiteboxes, featuring the SONIC project and IPInfusion’s OcNOS as our main software distributions.
    • Software Defined Networking: External control for the centralized management and automation of network equipment, with support for any vendor, featuring the ONOS project.
  • Compute Infrastructure Software
    • Open Compute Project: Highly efficient, open specification servers, storage systems, and racks.
