Software firm VMware has announced it has collaborated with Samsung to help Communication Service Providers (CSPs) meet the requirements of 5G networks and accelerate the roll-out of 5G. This will include optimising Samsung’s portfolio of telco offerings from Core to Edge to RAN for both containerised network functions (CNFs) and virtualised network functions (VNFs) with VMware Telco Cloud Platform, says the company.
With VMware Telco Cloud Platform, CSPs can deploy a cloud-native, software-defined 5G network that can accelerate the delivery of services and applications across distributed telco clouds with operational consistency, integrated lifecycle management and multi-layer automation, claims VMware.
As part of this collaboration, the companies say that they have been working together at Samsung’s lab to optimise and accelerate the readiness of Samsung’s various VNFs and CNFs, such as vRAN, 5G Core, MEC, Management, and Analytics, with the VMware Telco Cloud Platform. Samsung’s VNFs and CNFs have been and continue to be integrated with VMware’s Ready for Telco Cloud program.
“The infrastructure supporting 5G will depend on virtualized and containerized network functions delivered from software-defined telco and edge cloud platforms,” said Shekar Ayyar, executive vice president and general manager, Telco and Edge Cloud Business Unit, VMware. “We are thrilled to be working with Samsung to deliver joint carrier-grade solutions that leverage the VMware Telco Cloud portfolio to help CSPs seize this 5G moment and transform themselves into leading technology innovators.”
