RAD will present at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona its new vCPE-OS software, together with the ETX-2v white box.
The vCPE-OS is become part of RAD’ s Service Assured Access Solution, running on any white box server and pre-loaded in RAD’s vCPE devices, including the new ETX-2v, that joins ETX-2i Whitebox+, universal CPE (uCPE) with pluggable x86 server module and hardware acceleration options, in RADs vCPE solutions portfolio.
The open vCPE platform ETX-2v is design to be installed at customer premises to support a wide range of business customers and user scenarios. The device features an x86-based D-NFV module for hosting virtual functions and applications. The D-NFV module runs on vCPE-OS, which includes standard KVM hypervisor and OpenStack compute node to support third-party applications.
RAD offers a complete solutions that includes L2/L3 NIDs featuring virtualization engine, physical CPE (pCPE) devices, enhanced white box (Whitebox+) offerings, a powerful operating system (vCPE-OS) pre-integrated into RAD devices and available for third-party white box platforms, pluggable devices to accelerate server performance, and management and orchestration for the network edge.
This solution is complemented by RAD’s D-NFV Alliance, an ecosystem of network orchestrator and VNF vendors, as well as international system integrators specializing in new pre-certified NFV/vCPE applications.
By realizing the OS as a standalone software, RAD is able to offer the much-needed flexibility requested from the market, separating hardware from software.
