Radisys Becomes CORD Systems Integrator, Contributing Member to Mobile CORD

By Rory Lidstone March 15, 2016

Considering the way it has dedicated itself to SDN and NFV lately, it seems Radisys Corporation is committed to supporting the transformation of old processes into new ones. As though to underscore this, the services acceleration company this week became one of the leading systems integrators for CORD.

CORD is an abbreviation of Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter and it offers an open service delivery platform designed to provide data center economies and cloud agility to service providers transforming central offices into telco optimized data centers. Radisys’ take on CORD combines a deployable hardware blueprint with a complete open source software stack, along with a suite of professional services. This approach enables operators to quickly and easily leverage the benefits of commodity building blocks in their central office transformation projects.

As a CORD systems integrator, Radisys will also help service providers and the community turn residential, enterprise and mobile CORD proofs of concept into deployable, carrier-grade solutions. To achieve this, the company will offer end-to-end, world-class support for CORD integration and commercial deployment on Radisys’ recently launched DCEngine hyperscale data center product.

In other recent SDN news involving Radisys, the company launched two SDN-enabled FlowEngine platforms in late February, the TDE-200 and TDE-500. Both offer intelligent front end traffic distribution that regulates traffic flows with high throughput and low latency.

“Radisys is committed to its role as a strategic contributor to CORD and M-CORD projects with the dedication of significant engineering and integration resources,” said Bryan Sadowski, vice president of FlowEngine Product Marketing at Radisys. “Our focus on integrating open-source SDN to enable new cloud-based services in the Central Office will transform service providers’ ability to accelerate and monetize new services through open hyperscale data center, SDN and NFV technologies.”

Aside from acting as a CORD systems integrator, Radisys also plans to be an active and critical contributing member to Mobile CORD (M-CORD), an initiative that integrates the CORD framework into mobile network architecture to enable an agile, service-driven environment that responds dynamically to subscriber demands. In support of this, Radisys has contributed its FlowEngine SDN platform as a key data/forwarding plane component of the M-CORD blueprint.
