QCT Fosters Open Ecosystem Partnerships to Meet Telco Needs for Cloud-Based 5G Infrastructures

Cloud Technology (QCT) today held a “Central Office 2.0” Event at
the QCT Solution Center in San Jose, California, where it unveiled
details of the company’s network transforming solutions in conjunction
with its technology partners in their newly opened QCT Telco Ecosystem
Collaboration (QTec) Lab. “Central Office 2.0” represents QCT’s vision
for the next-generation Central Office to advance edge computing for
high-performance and low-latency 5G applications, such as IoT,
autonomous vehicles and virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR). QCT is
taking a leading role to engage best-in-class technology partners, such
as Intel and Red Hat, as well as emerging networking communities, such
as Open Networking Foundation (ONF) and Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV),
in the development of robust, open standard-based networking solutions
that meet the growing capacity and low-latency demands at the edge of
the network.

“QCT’s long-term collaboration with Intel and Red Hat now extends to the
Telco space,” said Mike Yang, President of QCT. “With our partners, we
directly address emerging requirements in the Telco market with an
optimized NFVI Platform that supports carrier-grade infrastructures and
delivers a practical software-defined networking solution for
disaggregating the control and data plane and providing performance
consistency on IA-based systems. Through these strategic partnerships
with industry-leading hardware and software providers in the 5G
infrastructure space, we’ve developed high-performance open platforms
that are aimed at lowering Telco CAPEX and provide a competitive OPEX
advantage for increased margins over the long-term.”

From elastic and dynamic resource pooling with Intel® Rack Scale Design
(Intel® RSD) to boosting performance in the NFV infrastructure (NFVI),
QCT’s product offerings are tailored for Telco operators looking to
upgrade infrastructure and compete effectively at the network edge as 5G
drives technological advancements and as new applications are launched.
“Intel RSD offers Telco operators a new level of infrastructure
efficiency and agility,” said Figen Ulgen, General Manager of Intel Rack
Scale Design. “This collaboration with QCT, Red Hat, and Intel will
further advance digital transformation for communications service

With the vision of “Central Office 2.0”, QCT Solutions showcased in the
QTec Lab include:
QxStack NFV Infrastructure with Red Hat® OpenStack®Platform
– with data plane calibration and Enhanced Platform Awareness (EPA)
enabled for optimized network performance
QCT Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter (CORD) Ready POD
for central office and edge computing – the world’s first fully
integrated open source infrastructures ready for customer validation
QCT Rackgo R Vertical Integration with OpenStack – an Intel
RSD-based full-featured rack level solution with easy deployment and

In addition to providing infrastructure building blocks, QCT understands
the complex set of technical challenges Telco operators face when moving
from a physical to a Virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC), as well as
issues related to deploying Virtualized Radio Access Network (vRAN)
technologies. In response, QCT solutions are built to streamline
deployment times and costs by providing end-to-end pre-integrated,
pre-configured, pre-validated, and pre-optimized NFVI for central office

“There is a paradigm shift underway for Telco, being driven by NFV and
the need for expanded and optimized NFV infrastructures (NFVI),” said
Darrell Jordan-Smith, vice president, Global Information and
Communications Technology, Red Hat. “Our collaborative efforts with QCT
have resulted in an EPA-compliant solution inclusive of the Red Hat
OpenStack Platform that offers Telco operators an upgrade path and
enhanced scalability, along with greater confidence from industry
standard compatibility and testing, such as ETSI and OPNFV.”

QCT will also be demonstrating its “Central Office 2.0” solutions in
exhibition Hall 5, Booth 5B11 at the upcoming Mobile World Congress to
be held 26 February-01 March, 2018 in Barcelona, Spain.
