Partnership provides Communications Service Providers (CSPs) with
path to commercial deployments of M-CORD
HILLSBORO, Ore. & RICHARDSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 8, 2017--
Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), the global leader of open telecom
solutions, and Mavenir,
the leader in accelerating and redefining software network
transformation for Communications Service Providers, today announced
that they are working together to enable CSPs to commercially deploy an
M-CORD (Mobile Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter) open
reference solution. Commercially deployable M-CORD solutions will
accelerate new innovative use cases, agile service delivery, and
ultimately a new value chain for CSPs.
M-CORD is an open reference implementation for mobile wireless access
built on the pillars of open source SDN, NFV and cloud technologies.
As the emerging platform for 5G, M-CORD allows CSPs to provide the
capabilities needed to unlock innovation across the open networking
ecosystem with cloud economies.
Mavenir’s virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) is an innovative
microservice-based NFV-ready EPC that has been designed from the
ground up to operate in virtualized environments. The vEPC, with a
split user plane and control plane (CUPS) can scale independently in
throughput, transaction rate, and session capacity, providing CSPs
with the most flexibility at the lowest total cost of ownership.
Radisys, as the premier solution integrator of M-CORD, has now
integrated Mavenir’s carrier-grade vEPC into its M-CORD distribution.
Benchmarking of the solution on 40 cores on M-CORD reference platform
shows a performance of 15Gbps+.
Mavenir’s vEPC integrated with Mavenir’s and Radisys’ field-hardened
and globally deployed LTE Cloud RAN solution for virtual BaseBand
Units (vBBUs) and bundled with Radisys’ custom development and
additional integration services results in a turnkey M-CORD solution
that provides CSPs with a viable path to commercial deployment of
M-CORD with a carrier-grade EPC and RAN.
Radisys also offers M-CORD development PODs for CSPs to deploy their
own proof-of-concepts. The entire M-CORD solution can run on Radisys’
open compute platform – DCEngine™
which is compliant to the OCP-ACCEPTED™ CG-OpenRack-19 specification –
or on CSPs’ preferred hardware platform.
“At Mavenir, we’re committed to helping CSPs virtualize their network
infrastructure to enable scalability, agility and the economies of the
cloud, and bringing our vEPC to the M-CORD framework supports this
mission,” said Ashok Khuntia, GM and executive vice president of Access
Products Division, Mavenir. “We have a long-standing relationship with
Radisys and are excited to work together to take M-CORD from lab trials
to commercial deployments. Radisys’ unsurpassed systems integration
expertise is critical to bringing the CORD vision to life.”
“We’re pleased to partner with Mavenir to advance CSPs’ ability to break
vendor lock-in, accelerate service innovation and lower CapEx and OpEx
through commercial deployment of the M-CORD architecture,” said Neeraj
Patel, vice president and general manager, MobilityEngine, Radisys. “The
combination of Mavenir’s carrier-grade vEPC and our systems integration
expertise for M-CORD will accelerate CSPs path to true network
