Dell Technologies and Orange Collaborate for Telco Multi-Access Edge Transformation
- Combined telecommunications expertise to test and develop 5G use cases and business models
- Collaborative effort around multi-access edge computing and supporting technologies for software-defined mobility with distributed, multi-cloud and edge architectures
Realizing the full potential of edge computing, 5G innovation
5G will require a new breed of platforms supporting a rich catalogue of near real-time edge computing and IoT services. The companies will collaborate on meeting demands for new distributed architectures for 5G that combine the best of cloud and mobility. These distributed architectures will provide a common hardware foundation of automated, agnostic software-defined infrastructure, extending from on-premise to the radio to the core, to accelerate innovation and service delivery.
The new mobile platforms must be built on a trusted supply chain delivering an innovative ecosystem of solutions that fulfill the promise of 5G. They will use network telemetry to feed intelligent automation and service orchestration systems, using artificial intelligence to ensure consistent service levels and insight across the distributed environments. In short, all layers of the network stack will be visible to management systems, and those management systems will autonomously ensure both efficient network operations and high customer experience.
These technologies are the same that have been driving the realization of both enterprise data centers and public cloud. 5G extends these cloud and "IT-centric" requirements beyond traditional fixed-function hardware to deliver more dynamic, agile edge compute, storage and networking solutions. In order to capitalize on the new business opportunities that 5G will create, Communication Service Providers need open, industry standard architectures combined with software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), cloud native applications, and Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC).
