Elisa and Wind River Join Forces to Build Europe‘s First Fully Automated Far Edge Cloud for 5G
Wind River
February 22, 2022
Elisa and Wind River have partnered to build Europe’s first distributed and fully automated far edge Cloud for 5G, which will be one of the first in the world. Elisa and Wind River believe this will spark other large-scale 5G launches and spearhead the next wave of digital transformation across Europe. Specifically, Wind River Studio will serve as the cloud infrastructure technology providing a distributed cloud-native platform hosting mission-critical network functions and applications for advanced 5G use cases where low latency and high throughput are required. As a part of that distributed cloud platform, Wind River will also supply the automation and analytics capabilities needed to run such a distributed network at scale.

6.5 Reasons To Pay Attention To Open RAN
Forbes
October 01, 2021
The radio access network, or RAN, is a critical component of our daily lives, although most of us don’t give it much thought or even know what it is. The RAN is where our cell phone signal gets on the network – the access point. It then typically travels through a regional data center, through the network core and back out again. With 5G deployments coming online and the introduction of Open RAN, the RAN is becoming much more interesting, and here are 6.5 reasons why.

Energy Must Transition To Intelligent Systems To Lead The Way To The Future
Forbes
July 01, 2021
The first millennials start to turn 40 in 2021. (Indeed, we consider ourselves a millennial company, since we turn 40 this year too.) As they move beyond being consumers to roles as corporate executives, senior government officials, and societal leaders, millennials’ worldviews will increasingly influence the direction of our global future. For example, around 76% of older millennials, ages 33 to 40, think climate change poses a serious threat to society, according to a survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of CNBC. That opinion will make a difference in how leaders think about many connected issues; for example, energy and Bitcoin mining. Cambridge University researchers have shown the consumption of energy by Bitcoin mining will be more than the annual consumption of electricity by Argentina, a country of over 44 million people. Every new form of innovation will have an energy component to it, and the interconnections will become more and more complex—producing both opportunities and challenges. Consider these four sets of facts:

Manufacturing And The Intelligent Edge: What, Why, And How
Forbes
April 14, 2021
Industrial manufacturers tend to be conservative when implementing new technologies, a stance which has historically made sense. They typically want to ensure that they maximize the functional life expectancy of their equipment in order to extract the maximum value, with some equipment in use for 5, 15, or even 30+ years. In addition, the equipment they use is often highly specialized and purpose-built, which can make it very expensive. This combination of pressures makes companies reticent to introduce changes until they’ve squeezed every last drop of value from their system.

Crossing The Chasm For Industry 4.0
Forbes
January 27, 2021
Geoffrey Moore’s seminal book on the migration of technology usage from early to mainstream, Crossing the Chasm (1991), is widely seen as “the bible for bringing cutting-edge products to larger markets.” The book provides the perfect framework to view the moment we’re about to face with Industry 4.0. For those unfamiliar with the work, we’re talking about the moment when use of a technology or product moves from the early adopters, who are often interested in technology simply because it is novel, to the early majority, who are interested because they are able to see practical benefit.

5G Use Cases: Exploring 5G Applications Beyond Telecom
Wind River
May 18, 2020
One exciting aspect of 5G is its potential to transform whole industries beyond telecommunications. These industries will become huge new CSP customers.

For example, 5G is expected to form the backbone of autonomous vehicles and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) applications. It’s also poised to transform the way industrial sensors and other Internet of Things (IoT) devices function and communicate. 5G is even envisioned as playing a role in “augmented reality,” which could, in turn, influence the “smart city” phenomenon.

5G Challenges: Exploring the Biggest Challenges for 5G Deployment
Wind River
March 31, 2020
5G promises exciting advances for communications service providers (CSPs), but the 5G rollout is going to be challenging. CSPs must rapidly build out dense, low-latency edge networks in ways that are affordable, secure, and easily maintainable. CSPs are looking toward open-source, container-based network infrastructures that meet the 5G latency, reliability, and flexibility requirements while being inexpensive to deploy and maintain.

Wind River
November 19, 2019
While 5G is becoming a well-known technology buzzword, not much is known about the major shift the industry is going through as 5G deployment heads towards prime time. Obviously, 5G’s promise to the service provider community is one of increased revenue through an explosion of use cases such as Industrial IoT, autonomous and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) applications, mobile edge computing (MEC), human machine interaction such as augmented reality, and much more. Combined with the higher bandwidth and massive endpoint count support that 5G introduces, a perfect storm of opportunity has been created. Hence the incredible worldwide investment starting around transforming the globe’s communications to 5G.

Accelerating Open RAN Platforms Operator Survey: Charting the Use of Hardware Acceleration and Integration in Open RAN Deployments
Wind River
August 18, 2021
The combination of 5G and open RAN is driving significant opportunities for carriers and enterprises to upgrade and enhance their wireless networks without being tied to legacy equipment and existing suppliers. The standardized interfaces and functionality defined for open RAN solutions enables the use of server-based COTS/whitebox hardware and virtualized software functions from multiple vendors, however, the performance and capacity of the network depends heavily on the acceleration solutions installed in the systems, and the integration, interoperability and network optimization achieved. The CU, DU and RU, and can each benefit from platform acceleration solutions to optimize performance and ROI for real world deployments.

This webinar presents the key findings from the Heavy Reading Accelerating Open RAN Platforms Survey, conducted in March and April 2021. Among the topics to be discussed include:

Open RAN deployment requirements and benefits
Open RAN platform architecture options, features and capabilities
Hardware and software acceleration implementations
Software and integration solutions
