Wind River Systems, Inc. Key Developments

Trend Micro Collaborates with Wind River to Accelerate Deployment of NFV Solutions

Trend Micro Incorporated announced a partnership with Wind River to showcase and validate its network function virtualization (NFV) solution, Trend Micro Virtual Network Function Suite, on the Wind River Titanium Server, a commercial ready carrier-grade NFV infrastructure software platform. Trend Micro Virtual Network Function Suite is designed to offer flexible, reliable and high-performance virtual network security functions for service providers from premise, to edge, to the core network. The core of Virtual Network Function Suite is innovative deep packet inspection (DPI) technology, which provides various network security functions including intrusion prevention, URL filtering and application control. It has been widely adopted in a variety of network security products, from home routers to enterprise-facing next-generation firewalls and intrusion prevention systems. By validating and pre-integrating Virtual Network Function Suite with Titanium Server, Trend Micro can deliver optimized solutions for service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) deploying infrastructure based on NFV. Service providers and TEMs can confidently select validated hardware and software products knowing that they can pre-validate with Titanium Server and ready for deployment in live networks.

Wipro Collaborates with Wind River to Showcase Carrier Grade Cloud Technologies

Wipro Limited announced the demonstration of the VEVATO framework on Wind River Titanium Server. Wind River Titanium Server is a Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) infrastructure software solution that delivers the carrier grade reliability required for telecom networks. Wipro’s VEVATO framework is a verification and validation tool used for testing of the enterprise and telco cloud. VEVATO verifies and validates the entire life-cycle, from concept to production roll-out, of all critical cloud sub-systems in a phased manner. Both the companies will jointly demonstrate the carrier grade features of Titanium Server using the VEVATO framework. An assurance framework is needed to test the production readiness of an SDN/NFV enabled Telco cloud. Telco cloud roll-out is a multi-year transformation journey based on standards and open source components that are still evolving. To minimize the risks involved, VEVATO assurance framework provides a phase-wise approach starting with testing the infrastructure layer, followed by the software network functions and management and orchestration layers, and the final validation of end-to-end network services.

Raisecom Accelerates its NFV Transformation with Wind River

Wind River has announced that networking equipment manufacturer Raisecom is making the move to Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) by using Wind River Titanium Server™ to develop virtualized small cell gateways. As their entry into NFV, Raisecom is virtualizing small cell gateway functions. Carriers employ small cells to offload mobile network data and use radio frequency more efficiently, helping them to extend service coverage and increase network capacity. Realizing that the development of a high-performance NFV platform for their gateways would be too costly and time-consuming, Raisecom turned to Wind River. Using Titanium Server as an NFV infrastructure platform, Raisecom reduced product testing and qualification costs by 20% compared to testing costs for traditional small cell gateway hardware, while decreasing time to market by 30%.
