The wireless data traffic explosion on the network has caused service providers to re-evaluate their existing network architecture. Traditional Central Office infrastructure built with closed proprietary boxes has proven to be too rigid, limited by existing hardware investment and available spectrum.
CORD (Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter) is a progressive open source project of the ONOS (Open Network Operating System) partnership. It combines SDN, NFV and innovative cloud technologies to bring the economies of the data center and the agility of the cloud to the Telco Central Office.
Mobile CORD, or M-CORD, brings this framework to the mobile edge. M-CORD integrates the open CORD framework into the CSPs’ mobile network architecture to enable an agile, service-driven environment that can dynamically respond to real-time subscriber demands. M-CORD project contributors include ON.Lab, leading service providers AT&T, SK Telecom, Verizon, along with collaborators such as Radisys, Cavium, NEC/NetCracker, Cobham Wireless, and Airhop.
If you’re a mobile network operator, or if you are responsible for next generation data center operations, don’t miss our June 17 DemoFriday presenting Mobile CORD (M-CORD) ON.Lab and Radisys. You’ll gain an exclusive early peek into the M-CORD Proof of Concept (PoC), showcasing this exciting new approach and infrastructure for deploying innovative mobile services. Obtain insights into upcoming mobile architectures and uncover early new learning about M-CORD architecture.
M-CORD capabilities to be discussed and demonstrated will include:
- Processing of wireless data traffic locally at the edge of the network to reduce latency and to improve network resource utilization
- Performing dynamic radio resource optimization and rapid service creation and instantiation of new cells (RAN), EPC, and edge services
- Network slicing of mobile network to enable MVNO and secure and effective IoT transport
- Creating enterprise portals for service customization for improved business agility and increased end-customer satisfaction
- Visualizing real-time analytics and applying them to improve troubleshooting, capacity planning
