Saguna Collaborates with Wind River to Accelerate Deployment of Edge Computing Solutions

By Ken Briodagh January 13, 2017

Saguna Networks, the Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) company that makes mobile broadband faster, simpler and more agile with virtualized software solutions, has announced it is collaborating with Wind River to validate the Saguna Open-RAN MEC solution operating on Wind River Titanium Server as the carrier grade platform. Titanium Server is a commercial-ready, ultrareliable NFV infrastructure software platform that enables service providers to deploy virtualized services faster, at lower cost, and with guaranteed uptime.

By validating and pre-integrating their hardware and software offerings with Titanium Server, companies can deliver optimized solutions for service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) deploying infrastructure based on NFV. Service providers and TEMs can confidently select validated hardware and software products knowing that they are pre-validated with Titanium Server and ready for deployment in live networks.

Companies perform their testing and validation process as part of the Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem program dedicated to accelerating the deployment of solutions for NFV. Through the collaboration of industry-leading software and hardware companies, the Titanium Cloud ecosystem helps ensure the availability of interoperable standard products optimized for NFV deployment with Titanium Server to help accelerate time-to-market for service providers and TEMs.

Saguna Open-RAN is a MEC platform that creates an open ecosystem inside the Radio Access Network (RAN), in close proximity to mobile users. Based on the ETSI MEC standard, the platform helps mobile operators monetize new IoT, augmented-reality content and enterprise services. Saguna Open-RAN features fully-virtualized, scalable architecture adding value to 4G networks and beyond to 5G and HetNets.

“In the past year, Mobile Edge Computing has been picking up momentum in trials and proof-of-concepts (PoC) worldwide. Saguna is dedicated to accelerating adoption and mass-market deployment of MEC by helping to build an extensive ecosystem of pre-integrated MEC solutions,” said Randy Cook, VP, Sales and Business Development, Saguna. “Our work with Wind River brings together the MEC platform and underlying NFV infrastructure needed for large-scale MEC projects.”
