Communications service providers will get help by the Telco cloud reference architectures and integrated solutions from the two firms to accelerate scalable network and edge deployment as they implement multi cloud architectures
To develop integrated solutions for communications service providers, Google cloud and Intel are teaming up for accelerating 5G deployments across multiple networks and edge locations.
The two companies on Tuesday said that the focus of the partnership is accelerating the ability of communications service providers for deploying their virtualised radio access network (RAN) and open RAN solutions with next-generation infrastructure and hardware.
Also, launching new lab environments to help communications service providers innovate for cloud native-based 5G networks and making it easier for communications service providers to deliver business applications to the network edge are the other areas on which the partnership will focus.
Shailesh Shukla, Vice President and General Manager of Networking at Google Cloud, said in a statement, “communications service providers can adopt cloud-native technologies to harness the potential of 5G both as a connectivity solution and as a business services platform to deliver applications to the network edge”.
In Intel’s journey, this collaboration will mark another important step forward to help transform the 5G network with a software-defined, agile and scalable infrastructure.
Further, to accelerate scalable network and edge deployment as communications service providers implement multi cloud architectures, they will get help by the Telco cloud reference architectures and integrated solutions from the two firms.
The two companies said that including retail, manufacturing and healthcare, this is critical to achieving the full potential of 5G, edge and artificial intelligence across a range of industries.
Dan Rodriguez, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the Network Platforms Group, Intel, said, “The next wave of network transformation is fuelled by 5G and is driving a rapid transition to cloud-native technologies”.
“As communications service providers build out their 5G network infrastructure, our efforts with Google and the broader ecosystem will help them deliver agile, scalable solutions for emerging 5G and edge use cases”
