NOKIA AND WIND RIVER Telecommunications service providers are on a journey to evolve their networks. This journey is headed toward transforming the network architecture and enabling new value-added services that require ultra-low latency and high broadband capacity. One of the main drivers behind this change is the expectation of billions of connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices serving our businesses and private lives. But this journey does come with challenges, including enabling this higher degree of connectivity while keeping operational expenses (OPEX) down. To achieve this, it is imperative to combine an optimized hardware solution with advanced technologies such as Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). The Nokia AirFrame Data Center Solution addresses these requirements by leveraging the latest advancements in x86 hardware technology and a complete portfolio of hardware accelerators. In addition, Nokia AirFrame is offered in variants, including the highly efficient Open Compute Project (OCP) form factor. Especially for the Cloud Radio Access Network (Cloud-RAN), the stringent capacity and latency requirements of the mobile radio access technologies drive the need for an extremely powerful cloud infrastructure, tailored for real-time performance. In this scenario, the Wind River ® Titanium Cloud ™ virtualization software platform is a key complementary component of Nokia's Cloud-RAN solution. Nokia's integrated solution, which comprises Titanium Cloud software running on AirFrame Data Center Solution hardware, has been proven to achieve best-in-class performance in the areas below that are critical for the cost-effective deployment of NFV: • Virtual network functions (VNFs) powered by accelerated hardware • Ultra-low latency • Holistic cloud management and security solutions • Best cost and power efficiency This solution brief summarizes the features and benefits of Nokia's integrated AirFrame Data Center Solution, illustrating how it enables service providers to maximize their return on investment as they introduce Cloud-RAN. MEETING HIGH QUALITY REQUIREMENTS IN CLOUD-RAN By leveraging the Titanium Cloud virtualization platform, the AirFrame Data Center Solution meets key high quality requirements for telecom radio networks, which means real value for telecom operator customers: Carrier Grade AirFrame Data Center Solution Powered by Titanium Cloud Titanium Cloud Solution Brief Ecosystem Component Standard server platform Solution Nokia AirFrame Data Center Solution Value • Virtual functions powered by accelerated hardware • Ultra-low latency • Holistic cloud management and security solutions • Best cost and power efficiency AN INTEL COMPANY ™ WHEN IT MATTERS, IT RUNS ON WIND RIVER
