Infrastructure of the Future NOW!

QCT is offering 5G end-to-end hardware products and solutions spanning from on-premise uCPE, edge computing, 5G NR, 5G Core, to service assurance and applications.

In Telco worlds, QCT not only provide carrier-grade and commercial level solutions, but also collaborate with open source communities and have achievements with our strong ecosystem partner. Along with updates to Rakuten cloud native success, an ORAN DU/CU disaggregated architecture and ONAP machine learning based data lake project with China Mobile are just a few of the many examples.

As QCT believes 5G starts now and because 5G revolves around applications which require eMBB, uRLLC, or mMTC scenarios, QCT collaborated with software partners like Intel, Red Hat, Altiostar, Baicells, Radisys, ASTRI, and Altran to realize NFV architectures to help Telcos transform from a traditional central office to 5G data center (5GDC), accelerating new services implementation.

5G Ecosystem Session

Abstract

To deliver on its promise of ultra-low latency and a high volume of connectivity, 5G uses a large number of Edge Datacenters located close to the market they serve. Agile, composable infrastructures are must-haves in such Edge Centers that can cater to changing customer demands from evolving 5G/IoT use-cases. If you are deploying or managing such a 5G infrastructure, how do you secure your Edge Infrastructure and make sure it is not compromised? How do you ensure that your VNFs (virtual network functions) are getting deployed on a secure platform? What are your options for remediation if one of your Edge Infrastructures are compromised? Attend this session to learn how you can leverage Quanta’s Edge Servers along with AMI Composer to solve these questions.

Abstract

When deploying virtual functions/services at scale, network admins quickly realize the high CPU utilization and low overall performance. This poor performance is mainly attributed to the virtual switch – a logical switching entity usually built into the software infrastructure. The virtual switch is responsible for connecting Virtual Machines in a virtual network. At scale, and with increased data center traffic, this type of switching consumes precious CPU cycles. Mellanox ASAP2 - Accelerated Switch and Packet Processing® solution combines the performance and efficiency of server/storage networking hardware with the flexibility of virtual switching software. ASAP2 offers up to 10 times better performance than non-offloaded OVS solutions. This provides the NFVi & SDN with the highest total infrastructure efficiency, deployment flexibility and operational simplicity.

Abstract

With the emerging and diversified needs on 5G, the definition of new architecture of 5G SA Core Network only marks the beginning of architectural evolution. There are more challenges in designing and deploying the 5G SA Core to suit needs, e.g. edge computing, enterprise on-premise, cloud native. In additions, the virtualization architecture to provide flexibility to deploy, scale and manage plays important roles for 5G. We will explore those challenges in 5G SA Core in this talk and how QCT and ASTRI work together to address them.

Abstract

Ensuring interoperability is critical for a multi-vendor ecosystem to be commercially viable, and the Open RAN ecosystem is no exception. The role of the systems integrator in these new open ecosystems is to integrate the software and white-box hardware to deliver a complete end-to-end solution. The Open Test and Integration Center (OTIC) initiative is focused on facilitating product readiness and interoperability for next-gen 5G wireless networks based on the O-RAN Alliance architecture, specifications, and interfaces. This presentation will provide lessons learned from a systems integrator that was tasked with ensuring end-to-end compliance with O-RAN specifications in a multi-vendor environment for the China Mobile plugfest held at OTIC-Beijing.

Abstract

Data centre costs are rising, with reports citing double digit growth over the next five years driven by increased demands for cloud-based services, IoT, analytics, and other factors. Taming these costs require cloud service providers to utilize their resources more efficiently by spinning workloads up and down in accordance with demand. Techniques such as elasticity and cloud bursting (placing loads on third-party clouds) can help cloud providers stabilize costs through higher efficiency and right sizing. This session examines how cloud providers can use automation in optimization use cases which would normally overwhelm manual processes due to the variety and scale of data centre applications. Coupled with advanced analytics, such automation can realize the efficiency goals and service guarantees of an intelligent cloud.

Abstract

It’s no secret that enterprises have found it challenging to succeed in digital transformation initiatives. With access to edge infrastructure and 5G, there is no longer a gap in enterprise ability to provide real-time digital operations and to optimize end user experiences. Trusted, repeatable solutions and event-based insights are now possible based on edge infrastructure adjacent to end users and devices, either in private edge (on-premises) deployments, or in public edge networks. There is a growing ecosystem aligning around the power of edge and 5G to finally enable enterprise digital transformation and at MobiledgeX, we’re proud to be central to that ecosystem and to be partners with the end to end value chain of leading vendors.
