Kontron Now Part of Wind River Titanium Cloud NFV Ecosystem

By Frank Griffin September 16, 2014

Whenever a new solution is introduced in the marketplace, organizations that use the technology establish standards for best practices to ensure it is being delivered properly. Wind River provides a commercial network functions virtualization (NFV) solution that allows service providers to maintain six-nines (99.9999 percent) reliability as they deploy an NFV infrastructure.

 Kontron, a provider of embedded computing technology, announced it is now part of the Wind River Titanium Cloud NFV partner program, which will inform its customers about the quality of the products and services it offers.

As part of the program, Kontron will be able to offer its commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware platforms pre-validated with Wind River NFV solutions to telecom service providers that need virtualization cloud environments.

Wind River NFV solutions have an integrated portfolio of software elements that enables NFV infrastructure to achieve the carrier grade reliability for telecom networks. With this solution in place customers are able to lower their OPEX and increase average revenue per user (ARPU) as they deploy NFV in their networks.

One of the products that have been pre-validated by Wind River is the Kontron Symkloud MS2910 platform. It has 10G redundant switching for support of OpenFlow with a high density 2RU – 21-inch deep modular platform which uniquely compacts multiple Intel processors with dedicated memory and storage. According to the company it is optimized for the stacking of multiple platforms for the instantiation and management of massively scalable virtual applications.

Philippe Chevallier, director of product management and platform architecture, Communication Business Unit, Kontron said, “With a long, successful history in designing carrier grade COTS hardware, such as our family of ATCA and rackmount servers, Kontron is excited to contribute to the efforts behind the Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem to produce highly evolved NFV infrastructure solutions.”

The Titanium Cloud ecosystem program ensures Wind River and its partners deliver the availability of optimized, interoperable hardware and software solutions that accelerate time-to-market for service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) deploying infrastructure based on NFV. Initially five industry leaders announced their participation in the program: Brocade, GENBAND, Metaswitch Networks, Nakina Systems, and Overture, with HP and Kontron being the latest additions.

Wind River is a wholly owned subsidiary of Intel Corporation delivering software for intelligent connected systems. Its computing technology inside embedded devices is found in nearly two billion products providing innovation with the deployment of safe, secure, and reliable intelligent systems.
