To seize the opportunities promised by 5G use cases, some of which require low latency, service providers must distribute compute, storage, and network resources to the edge, closer to the devices they service.
Ericsson Edge NFVI is optimized to move traffic through a network distributed all the way to the edge with the low latency, low cost, and high throughput 5G use cases require. Its design is compact. It manages both cloud native applications and virtual network functions running on a single platform. Its cloud technology and virtualized network functions give it a highly flexible network architecture.
The telco-grade, system-verified design of Ericsson Edge NFVI is market proven, and ready to be quickly deployed in demanding telecom environments.
OUR KEY BENEFITS
Small and powerful for cost efficiency
Delivers a throughout of 200 Gbps per server on the edge in 1/3 the hardware footprint, catering to applications that put a heavy load on the user plane. Its software management overhead has been reduced significantly.
Efficient hybrid VM and container environment
Virtual machines and containers will co-exist for the foreseeable future. To efficiently accommodate both, Ericsson Edge NFVI supports a common MANO solution that manages both VMs and containers running on the same platform.
E2E managed and orchestrated solution for distributed cloud
Employs the same software stack and supports the same pre-integrated hardware components as Ericsson system-verified NFVI. Dynamic orchestration and management for thousands of edge sites is mature and powerful, providing automated E2E orchestration across the network.
