Page 1 of 9 The next-generation telco industry will essentially become a distributed Telco Cloud built around these three key concepts. The CORD platform can reside either at the edge of the network or at the central office location. It provides a common platform for the two most prevalent access technologies wireless and broadband), and it delivers most of the functionality (both access and core) over merchant silicon as a virtualized function on a data center. Radisys is a leading provider of systems integration and services for all three flavors of CORD, including mobility, residential and enterprise. Radisys is working with industry-leading players that are actively involved in both the Radio Access Network (RAN) and the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) to deliver a robust product/services portfolio. This solution brief presents key considerations for M-CORD (Mobile-CORD) and solutions using Radisys' MobilityEngine™ 5G RAN™ LTE so ware framework and Radisys' EPC framework. LOCALIZED (NEAR TO END USER) CONTROL, LOWER LATENCY, ENHANCED CONTROL FOR NEWER SERVICES CHAINING 3G RAN 4G RAN ONT ACCESS OLT/RAN OPEN SOURCE MOBILE INFRASTRUCTURE OPEN COMPUTE PLATFORM OPEN SOURCE CONTROL AND MANAGEMENT TRADITIONAL CENTRALIZED COs EDGE COMPUTING (virtualized baseband units, virtualized CPEs, vBNG, edge packet core, MEC applications like caching etc.) DISTRIBUTED TELCO Open source mobile infrastructure – enables rapid innovations and inhibits closed black box solutions. Open compute platform – OCP compliant platform for efficient power usages (Radisys DCEngine CG-OR-19 compliant – carrier grade open rack 19'' OCP platform). Open Source Control And Management – usage of open source orchestrators like ECOMP, XOS for control and usage of controllers like ODL, ONOS for management.
