VMware has launched the company’s 5G Telco Cloud Platform, a cloud solution featuring a field proven, carrier-grade and high-performance cloud native infrastructure with intelligent automation, the company reported on Sept. 1. 

“With support for cloud native technologies in the Telco Cloud Platform, CSPs can now boost their innovation speed to deliver new applications and services, reduce operational complexities, and realize substantial total cost of ownership savings, further accelerating the rollout of their 5G networks,” said Shekar Ayyar, EVP and general manager, Telco and Edge Cloud Business Unit, VMware. 

The VMWare platform will include Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, an embedded Kubernetes distribution, that will allow Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to reliably build, manage and run containerized workloads across private, telco, edge and public clouds.

VMWare’s solution will integrate innovative 5G services, powered by a modernized cloud that delivers web-scale speed and agility while maintaining carrier-grade performance, resiliency and quality. The company’s innovative multi-cloud platform will also accelerate the rollout of 5G networks and modernize operational models through multi-layer automation with seamless integration. 

The Telco Cloud Platform will deploy innovative applications and services to market faster in the highly competitive 5G communications landscape and provide a cloud-first network architecture to accelerate 5G and edge innovation while delivering service agility, operational consistency and integrated lifecycle management automation from infrastructure up to network services. 

The 5G ready Telco Cloud Platform is tailored for CSPs to easily embrace cloud native technology and deliver applications and services across multi-cloud infrastructure. Telco Cloud Infrastructure will feature a consistent, unified platform to deliver operations for both Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) and Cloud Native Network Functions (CNFs) across telco networks. 

The VMware solution will also optimize the delivery of network services with telco centric enhancements to support distributed cloud deployments and provide scalability and performance. 

“In a 5G world, complexity from dynamic network functions and configurable services requires automated collection, analysis, and control of operations data to establish customer insight and service management boundaries,” said Karl Whitelock, VP Communications Service Provider Operations and Monetization, at IDC Research
