Robot use in production, augmented reality, 5G campus solutions, self-propelled cars, smart cities - more and more terminals, machines and sensors at the edge of the networks are causing data growth to skyrocket. At the same time, more and more systems are needed there, such as encryptors, turbo routers, firewalls, WAN optimizers and 5G-RAN controllers (Radio Access Network). New equipment is constantly being added to the already extensive hardware inventory, and the service for it is becoming extremely complex. New services can only be introduced at a correspondingly slow pace, and in many locations there is sometimes hardly any space left for even more hardware.
In our solution, so-called edge controllers - small compact devices - take over the functions of numerous hardware components in virtualized form. This is achieved by VNF (Virtualized Network Functions) on so-called uCPEs (universal Customer Premises Equipment), which are integrated and automated in an IT environment via APIs and scripting. Using standardized protocols in the Linux/OpenStack and software-defined WAN environment, numerous network functions and applications can be realized, for example:
This makes many things much easier: maintenance and service, new versions and applications as well as compliance guidelines are now centrally controlled. This brings more efficiency and significant cost savings.
The operation is carried out from our BSI-certified Network Operations Center (NOC): With NFV MANO (Network Functions Virtualization Management and Orchestration) we manage your edge cloud centrally. With the possibility of integrating individual applications, we can offer companies their familiar IT environment (customer edge). Carriers receive a comprehensive portfolio (Network Edge) from us, from which they can serve the requirements of their customers.
