SAN JOSE, CA: It is now high-time for communication service providers to decide on modernizing their infrastructure, as they are facing economic pressures and service challenges due to the disruption of 5G, IoT and OTT. In order to strengthen the service providers in facing these challenges of next-generation networks, Radisys, the services acceleration company has rolled out the latest member of Radisys’ suite of solutions—DCEngine. The solution complies with Open Compute Project (OCP) principles as well as adheres to the requirements of communication service providers.

DCEngine presents open, software-defined services delivery infrastructure that is built on open source hardware and software technologies delivering DevOps ability to service providers; transforming the cloud landscape.

“As Verizon introduces open, flexible technology that paves the way for central office transformation, we look to companies like Radisys to assist us in that journey. Network modernization will rely on solutions such as DCEngine that meet service provider needs with open source hardware and software technologies,” explains Damascene Joachimpillai, Architect, Cloud Hardware, Network and Security, Verizon Labs—Client of Radisys.

Low cost infrastructure of DCEngine unifies workloads and eliminates the legacy workloads and applications that use purpose built-hardware. The solutions speed up the service delivery by decoupling the services from underlying infrastructure. It brings out an adaptive, programmable platform that is flexible, cost-effective, streamlined, and efficient.

The pre-installed, ready-to-deploy frame by OCP takes open systems approach and avoids vendor lock-in typical of alternative rack solutions. The density of storage per rack ranges from 2.4 petabytes up to 152; operates on Intel Xeon class of processors in a standard 42RU frame. Built on Open Network Operating System (ONOS) and Central Office Re-architected-as-a-Datacenter (CORD) initiatives, the flexible software and management framework enables the most demanding service provider workloads. Incorporating all the exceptional functionalities such as NEBS temperature, EMI and seismic requirements, the design meets next-generation central office and service provider data center specifications.

Providing professional services on lifecycle management of DCEngine hardware as well as software stacks, Brian Bronson, President and Chief Executive Officer at Radisys asserts, “DCEngine’s seamless scalability and efficient lifecycle management, coupled with our proven track record of understanding and addressing the needs of the service provider, positions Radisys to be a leader in enabling the evolution of next-generation operator infrastructure.”
