ADVA and Dell are working closely together to deliver an open and world-class uCPE platform to customers. The power of Dell EMC to provide world-wide fulfillment and support, combined with the operational features of the Ensemble software, deliver the performance and value based on the foundation of Intel processing power.
Valerio Martini, EMEA Lead Field Architect at Dell Technologies and Prayson Pate, SVP Solutions Marketing and CTO Edge Cloud for ADVA, join Intel® Chip Chat Network Insights in this archive of a livecast interview from the Intel® Network Builders Summit in conjunction with SDN & NFV World Congress in The Hague, Netherlands.
Prayson and Valerio describe why the NFV/uCPE journey has been long and painful, but innovative operators and enterprises are now leveraging open edge cloud platforms.
Valerio describes the process by which Dell and ADVA worked together on this solution and led collaboration across the industry to deliver an open industry standard platform. He shares why Dell is working to unleash the potential of the edge, and to give full freedom to the customer decouple hardware and software building blocks through ecosystem collaboration.
Prayson explains to ADVA’s approach to the application of cloud principles and technologies to the communications network. Within this edge cloud framework, NFV, uCPE, MEC, VRAN, NG-CO, CORD, micro data centers, all serve as use cases. He describes the tremendous progress and explosion of wins in the last 6 months.
