Al­ca­tel-Lu­cent has col­lab­o­rated with lead­ing cloud soft­ware and hard­ware com­pa­nies like Red Hat, Ad­van­tech and 6WIND to boost the roll out of com­mer­cial, vir­tu­alised ra­dio ac­cess net­work (vRAN) prod­ucts. The aim of the col­lab­o­ra­tion is to im­prove Al­ca­tel-Lu­cent’s vRAN tech­nol­ogy, work­ing on the CloudBand NFV plat­form, to en­sure that it com­plies with ser­vice providers’ wide per­for­mance and re­li­a­bil­ity needs.

In the wake of in­creas­ing con­sumer de­mand for video data ap­pli­ca­tions, along with the growth of the IoT and the launch of 5G wire­less tech­nol­ogy, ser­vice providers are look­ing to op­ti­mise their net­works to al­low new cost and op­er­a­tional ef­fi­cien­cies. With th­ese col­lab­o­ra­tions, Al­ca­tel-Lu­cent aims to of­fer a com­plete NFV­com­pli­ant vir­tu­alised ra­dio ac­cess net­work, which will meet with the high-per­for­mance, high-avail­abil­ity cloud re­quire­ments. Glenn Booth, VP of wire­less port­fo­lio man­age­ment and strat­egy at Al­ca­tel-Lu­cent, stated that the firm is lead­ing in vRAN tech­nol­ogy and makes use of a strat­egy of col­lab­o­ra­tion that com­bines lead­ing third­party tech­nolo­gies, and en­sures de­liv­ery of high qual­ity prod­ucts that meet the in­di­vid­ual re­quire­ments of the ser­vice providers’ cus­tomers.

“By as­so­ci­at­ing with Red Hat, Ad­van­tech and 6WIND, we are boost­ing the avail­abil­ity of our vRAN, and of­fer­ing our oper­a­tors the flex­i­bil­ity and ef­fi­ciency they need on a large scale for meet­ing sub­scriber data de­mand into the fu­ture,” Booth stated.
