Streamlining Operations and Automating Lifecycle Management with Telco Cloud Platform: Insights from Analysys Mason

Communications service providers are working at a rapid clip to establish the digital foundation to roll out 5G networks. If you’re part of a 5G effort, you’re likely harboring a multi-cloud vision of modern infrastructure that will empower your organization to quickly turn your 5G efforts into innovative services and viable business models.

At the same time, however, you’re probably faced with a conundrum: How can you deploy 5G services and network functions on infrastructure that has the consistency to enable you to simplify network operations, not make the task more complex. Since large 5G investments will increase the pressure to extract profit from 5G capabilities like low latency and high density, it is imperative that you can streamline operations and automate lifecycle management to keep OpEx low.

A digital operations model that abstracts the complexity of operating 5G networks and automates the management of network functions across multiple clouds helps elevate the promise of 5G to a sustainable reality. When you combine consistent infrastructure with an operations model that emphasizes this kind of cloud-first automation, you’ve obtained a critical mass for not only deploying but operating and optimizing 5G networks with ease.

To help you innovate quickly while managing functions and services efficiently, a modern telco cloud platform should contain these elements:

* Cloud-native technology such as containers and Kubernetes that lets you run and manage containerized network functions (CNFs).

* Hybrid infrastructure supporting both virtualized network functions (VNFs) and CNFs that spans multiple clouds and sites, from the core to the edge.

* Multi-layer, cloud-first automation that unites your infrastructure and multi-cloud resources in a centralized orchestration system.

VMware Telco Cloud Platform combines these elements into a consistent, horizontal platform that simplifies operations and automates lifecycle management so you can deploy and manage 5G networks and services while keeping OpEx low. Cloud-first automation cost-effectively lights up the path to digital transformation.

Analysys Mason has just published a paper that corroborates the efficient operational model embodied in VMware Telco Cloud Platform.

Understanding the Power of Cloud in Service Provider Networks: Telco Cloud for Dummies

It’s no secret that service providers have long identified the need to leverage the power of the cloud. That said, we’re still seeing a struggle in the market to discover the right ways and places to leverage these technologies. To support that discovery, we worked with Wiley Publishing to produce this Telco Cloud for Dummies book.

In this book, we walk through the transformation of service providers to digital service providers. Brought about by increasing customer expectations, a lack of business and service agility, and rising network costs, service providers know that this next generation of networks architectures will be the key to reimagining customer relationships and thriving in the digital marketplace. You will learn how the telco cloud is the foundation of the transformation toward software-driven, cloud-enabled network architectures, flexible DevOps-driven operations, and the ability to leverage new revenue-generating business models.

VMware Telco Cloud lets you run your telco network like a cloud with software-driven telecom infrastructure built to run virtual and cloud native network functions, and enable agile operations. The telco cloud is an essential platform to build and deliver new consumer and enterprise applications and compete with agile over-the-top vendors who have been operating digital, cloud-enabled networks for years.

You learn how the telco cloud can help you succeed on your digital transformation journey in the new cloud economy:

  1. What it takes to become a digital service provider in a multi-cloud world
  2. How to build a foundation for the telco cloud
  3. The requirements for the telco cloud
  4. Which VMware technologies power the telco cloud
  5. Key benefits of the telco cloud

The VMware Telco Cloud Platform as the Software Operating System for 5G

EDITORIAL UPDATE: On September 14, 2020 VMware officially closed its acquisition of Mode.net. The blog post below has been amended to reflect the team and the technology of Mode.net joining VMware.

VMware continues to make great progress on our vision and we are seeing proof that our strategy is resonating with customers and partners. We view the VMware Telco Cloud Platform as the software operating system for 5G. And our recent momentum shows that the industry agrees.

In the last quarter, we have shared new partnerships, customer wins and technology developments across the telco industry. We are working with DISH to bring 5G speed and performance to the majority of the US population with the world’s first open radio access network offering. VMware is also collaborating with Intel to deliver an integrated software platform for virtualized radio access networks (RAN) to accelerate the rollout of both existing LTE and future 5G networks. And finally we formally announced the delivery of our 5G Telco Cloud Platform, a consistent cloud first solution powered by a field proven, carrier-grade, and high-performance cloud native infrastructure with intelligent automation.

Today we are sharing that we are expanding our team with the acquisition of the team and the technology of Mode.net. This group brings knowledge and expertise with communication service providers that will be directly relevant to the work we have underway. These new team members have been working on unifying legacy telco networks with a multi-cloud architecture and helps expand our existing bench of talent, bringing additional engineering expertise and innovative ideas that will help us accelerate our delivery.

Across the globe, the race is on to bring 5G from idea to wide deployment. VMware is helping communication service providers meet the increasing demand for innovative 5G services by delivering   a telco cloud platform that can efficiently create, monetize, and deliver an array of new applications and services for both consumer and enterprise markets.
