Ericsson BSP 8100 is a platform for telecom workloads, native and virtual, running in central office environments. It is a key component in Ericsson's system-verified NFVI solution and supports any server application needing telecom grade availability. Ericsson BSP 8100 is NEBS3 compliant.
Software defined hyperconverged infrastructure optimized for demanding environments through NEBS3 compliance and fully redundant hardware and software configuration The inbuilt tracing and health check functions support trouble free operations.
The software defined infrastructure enables vPODs (virtual performance-optimized datacenters) for both native and/or virtualized workloads. Flexible and compact deployment options with small footprint, low noise and low power consumption.
Ericsson BSP 8100 is based on Intel x86 technology supporting any server application, both Ericsson and third party, needing telecom grade availability.

Ericsson BSP 8100 is a datacenter infrastructure for demanding environments with main characteristics such as deployment flexibility, NEBS3 compliance, small footprint, low noise, low power consumption. Key features and benefits include:
Telecom grade - Through its NEBS3 compliance, small footprint and energy efficient configurations, it is an optimal product for central office modernization and consolidation. All key components are duplicated and possible to replace at in-service operation (hot swappable) offering 99,999% availability. It is tailored to fit the needs of scalable telecom server applications with high requirements on networking capacity and processing capabilities.
Flexible - Provides vPOD (virtual performance-optimized datacenter) support enabling several applications (tenants) to co-exist within the same blade server. Each tenant has its own set of blades, i.e., compute and storage resources, and they share the switching infrastructure. This provides a high degree of application separation and predictable behavior in terms of offered capacity and availability.
Efficient operations - The capturing unit provides in-built protocol tracing for any application hosted in an installation. It captures, stores, decodes and presents protocol information to support, for example, fast and efficient trouble shooting and customer complaint follow up. The built in health check function ensures that the configuration is correct at all times.
Multi-Level Management - BSP 8100 features system management, NFV management and service deployment management leveraging Ericsson’s extensive telecom industry experience. This management includes extensive operational and business system support (OSS/BSS), configuration management, transport management, performance management, fault management and hardware and software management.
Open - Based on Intel x86 technology and supports Ericsson applications as well as third party applications.
