By validating and pre-integrating their hardware and software offerings with Titanium Server, a commercial ready NFV infrastructure software platform, companies can deliver optimized solutions for service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) deploying infrastructure based on NFV. Service providers and TEMs can confidently select validated hardware and software products knowing that they are pre-validated with Titanium Server and ready for deployment in live networks.


NEXCOM has performed their testing and validation process as part of the Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem program dedicated to accelerating the deployment of solutions for NFV. Through the collaboration of industry-leading software and hardware companies, the Titanium Cloud ecosystem ensures the availability of interoperable standard products optimized for NFV deployment with Titanium Server to help accelerate time-to-market for service providers and TEMs.


NEXCOM NSA 7135 is a solid NFV hardware platform designed for telecom carriers to dynamically respond to changes in clients’ needs. Based on Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v4 Family, the NSA 7135 can provide up to 44 computing cores with a dual-processor configuration and support 512GB of DDR4 ECC memory and eight LAN modules for a combined bandwidth of 320 Gbps. Incorporating Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT), and Intel® AES New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI), the NSA 7135 can accelerate virtualization and encryption workloads to run a highly mixed set of networking services in parallel.


Network communication and services are gradually becoming integral parts within the telecom industry, with many operators shifting their focus to network services. NFV which allows agile, flexible service delivery and facilitates the management of the increasingly complex service strategies is seen as a one of ideal solution for telecom carriers to easily allocate hardware resources for service upgrade, expansion, and termination,” said Hadwin Liu, Chief Architect of NEXCOM Network and Communication Solutions Business Group. “We are excited to join forces with Wind River to assist customers in reaching their NFV objectives.”


“Service providers are looking for validated and market-ready end-to-end NFV solutions. To address this need, collaboration across the ecosystem is essential,” said Charlie Ashton, senior director of business development for networking solutions at Wind River. “With validation through our Titanium Cloud program, we are collaborating with leaders like NEXCOM to create optimized, interoperable solutions for service providers and TEMs who are deploying NFV in their networks. Titanium Server provides a foundation for Carrier Grade NFV infrastructure, and by leveraging other pre-validated NFV elements, service providers can quickly achieve their goals such as reducing OPEX while accelerating the introduction of new high-value services."


Titanium Server is a carrier grade NFV infrastructure software solution that is designed to meet the stringent "always on" requirements of the telecom industry. With Titanium Server as the NFV infrastructure software foundation, the telecom industry can take full advantage of rapid service deployment while ensuring the Carrier Grade uptime and strict reliability mandated by telecom networks. Titanium Server is based on open software standards including Linux, real-time Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM), carrier grade plugins for OpenStack®, Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK), and accelerated virtual switching, all optimized for Intel® architecture platforms.
