Ericsson Collaborates with Intel to Build Data Centers for Telecom Operators
FREMONT, CA: With the finger on the pulse of today mobile operators, Ericsson and Intel partner to help mobile network operators build their own data centers. The strategy here is to empower mobile operators to be on an equal footing with technology companies such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon who build their own hardware and software infrastructure.
Mobile operators through building their own data centers can bring down the expense on hardware while boosting the range of services offered to subscribers. While competing with technology companies such as Cisco and IBM, Ericsson plans to offer services to big telecom companies. The CEO of Ericsson, Hans Vestberg, says his company would not be competing with new corporate customers in other industries.
With this partnership, Ericsson offers new generation of cloud-enabled data center platforms to perform hardware disaggregation, supported by Intel Rack Scale Architecture, management software and orchestration that optimizes and scales cloud resources across private, public and enterprise cloud to enhance service agility at reduced total cost of ownership (TCO). Both companies leverage Open Platform for Network Functions Virtualization (OPNFV) to generate carrier-grade, open source platform.
Vestberg also adds that the company automates its distributed cloud infrastructures governed for security and compliance that aligns with enterprise policy requirements and geo-specific regulations.
