Ericsson, Intel create software-defined infrastructure for 5G era

Tuesday 12 February 2019 | 09:48 CET | News

Ericsson and Intel began a multi-year collaboration to align ongoing development efforts in software-defined infrastructure (SDI) and Intel Rack Scale Design. Ericsson said the resulting infrastructure management platform will provide a new level of cloudlike agility, transparency and efficiency required for network functions virtualisation (NFV), distributed cloud, and 5G. The provided hardware management platform extends the agility of the cloud to the hardware infrastructure layer.

The new infrastructure management platform will help service providers speed time-to-market, maximise utilisation, and reduce total cost of ownership, Ericsson said in a press release.

As part of the multi-faceted agreement, the companies will align development efforts of Ericsson SDI Manager software and Intel Rack Scale Design (Intel RSD) and extend these products with advanced management functionalities. These unified development efforts will allow operators to leverage multi-vendor hardware options, Ericsson’s software products, and Intel’s latest architectural innovations.

As part of the collaboration, Ericsson and Intel will converge Ericsson SDI Manager software and Intel RSD reference software while maintaining full backward compatibility for existing customers. Jointly-developed software and hardware innovations resulting from the collaboration will be offered in subsequent Ericsson hardware platforms and may also be offered with Intel’s server products which are sold through other partners and in other industry segments.

The companies will show the Ericsson SDI Manager at Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona, 25-28 February.
