Hitachi CTA Accelerates Telco Cloud MME/SGSN Offering With VMware

Massively Scalable MME/SGSN on VMware vSphere(R)

RICHARDSON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/26/14 -- Hitachi Communication Technologies America, Inc. (Hitachi CTA) today announced the availability of its massively scalable MME/SGSN on VMware vSphere®. This solution runs on commercial off-the-shelf servers from multiple suppliers, including Hitachi.

Hitachi CTA had previously demonstrated this capability at MWC in Barcelona in February 2014. Working closely with VMware, Hitachi CTA has evolved its carrier-grade MME/SGSN platform to be fully virtualized. This solution addresses the evolving needs of service providers to quickly deploy carrier-grade Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) applications in a Telco Cloud, without the need to invest in discrete, proprietary physical network elements. Hitachi CTA is leveraging the robust and highly available VMware vSphere® architecture, creating a truly elastic network function that maximizes the benefits of a virtual network element, and adds capacity without complexity. This includes:

  • Subscriber sessions -- enabling the millions of new LTE and machine to machine (M2M) devices; and
  • Transactions processing -- managing the dramatic increase in 4G device transactions rates; and
  • Radio access network connectivity -- exceeding the fan-out required by the increasing deployment of small cells.

"Hitachi CTA continues to lead the market in rapidly delivering a highly functional and high performance MME/SGSN VNF architected to scale well beyond 20 million simultaneously active subscribers," said Reg Wilcox, CEO of Hitachi CTA. "VMware provides a proven carrier-grade NFV platform that enables us to meet the performance and scalability requirements of the largest mobile service providers in the world."

"VMware is pleased to be working with Hitachi CTA to deliver a carrier-grade MME/SGSN virtualized solution," said Dave O'Callaghan, senior vice president, Global Partner Organization, VMware. "The use of VMware vSphere® 5.5 enables mobile operators to accelerate virtualization of their mobile networks to lower operational costs and capital expenditures, which are essential to meet the challenges posed by steadily increasing data demands."

Technical and market trials with Hitachi CTA virtualized MME/SGSN solution on VMware vSphere are in progress with leading operators to demonstrate Hitachi CTA's highly flexible and scalable architecture along with feature-rich capabilities in moving legacy networks to an NFV architecture. Hitachi CTA's virtualized MME/SGSN is platform agnostic and supports a mobile operator's preferred platform choice.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved.

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability.

We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale.
