New increments to the multi-merchant environment incorporate cloud, virtualization, systems administration and security pioneer, VMware. Correspondence specialist organizations (CSPs) would now be able to profit by open arrangements created by more than 65 individuals, including in excess of 50 virtual organization capacities (VNFs) and in excess of 40 white box workers.

“We’re excited to be joining the Ensemble Harmony Ecosystem, helping it accelerate the pace of NFV innovation and generate new value for our customers. This program is key to creating the openness and interoperability needed in the new age of software-based telecommunication networks,” said Mark Vondemkamp, VP, Products, SD-WAN and SASE Business, VMware. “For us, the Ensemble Harmony Ecosystem enables comprehensive virtualized solutions. It enables CSPs to choose from a wide variety of commercial VNFs and effortlessly realize the promise of NFV. Ensemble Harmony also makes it easy for us to deliver a consistent cloud architecture all the way from the public cloud to the network edge.”

ADVA's Ensemble Harmony Ecosystem is an alliance of equipment, programming and administration accomplices cooperating to drive virtualization and softwarization in media transmission organizations. The program conveys all CSPs need to tackle the full advantages of NFV and mechanization. It cultivates close joint effort between accomplices to guarantee interoperability and gives the capacity to choose from industry-driving arrangements, including the most famous SD-WAN, firewall and WAN advancement items. Beside VMware, the latest increments to the Ensemble Harmony Ecosystem are CASwell, flexiWAN, IEI Integration Corp, NEXCOM and Lanner.

“Lanner continues to work with ADVA on CSP adoption of NFV. And our support and promotion of Ensemble Harmony is another great example of how we together provide solutions that outperform purpose-built platforms in every way,” said Sven Freudenfeld, CTO, Lanner Inc. “Lanner’s Whitebox Solutions™, coupled with Ensemble and VNF partners, provide solutions that are available off-the-shelf, with the best technology, pre-validated, and fully homologated.”

“This ongoing growth means our Ensemble Harmony Ecosystem provides more options and delivers more value. By welcoming industry leaders like VMware into the program, we’re enabling our customers to transform their operations with some of the best available cloud solutions,” commented James Buchanan, GM, Edge Cloud, ADVA. “Today’s CSPs demand the freedom to choose the most advanced virtualization technology from a variety of leading innovators. They expect tech suppliers to cooperate with each other to ensure interoperability and reduce complexity. That’s what our Ensemble Harmony Ecosystem is all about. It creates an environment that fosters close cooperation, accelerates new initiatives and enables true multi-vendor solutions.”

NewEdge Collaborates with Parallel Wireless to Meet Mil5G's Network Requirements

NewEdge | January 13, 2021

NewEdge, a pioneer in the arising Open RAN environment, reported a cooperation exertion with Parallel Wireless, the main ALL G Open RAN software supplier, and All Purpose Networks, a pioneer in MEC, on various tasks that give a total start to finish framework to meet Mil5G's organization necessities. It was reported as of late that the Department of Defense, with the help of the FCC, is making accessible up to 530 MHz of range in the mid-band, which has been considered basic for US 5G incomparability. To address this opportunity, the partners will provide the following: • NewEdge Signal Solutions offers a broad portfolio of 5G Open RAN remote radio heads (RRH). The NewEdge Radio Units are the smallest size, weight and power consumption in their class, simultaneously satisfying multiple RF bands and modes in a single Radio Unit. • Parallel Wireless provides flexible and scalable DU and CU software. By leveraging the scale of commoditized general processor-based hardware, the software supports legacy 2G 3G 4G waveforms, and can be software upgraded to 5G. • All Purpose Networks, a pioneer in MEC (Multiple Access Edge Computing) with over thirty patents, will provide a software-based secure overlay to the underlying network. APN will provide a software component that runs on a general-purpose computer, providing unique routing and security capabilities. The resulting collaboration will provide an end-to-end solution from the edge to the core, including a security layer for all clients and access points regardless of how they connect to the network. Supporting Quotes "NewEdge is at the forefront of the Open RAN movement being embraced by mobile operators around the world, was an early participant in the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) and a founding member of the Open RAN Policy Coalition," said Tom Lambalot, CEO of NewEdge Signal Solutions. "To ensure seamless interoperability with a respective DU (Distributed Unit), we are engaging with leading OpenRAN participants that are more focused on the software elements of the network architecture, including Parallel Wireless. As 5G continues to roll out, we are benefiting from the investments we have made in the core technologies required of a best-in-class Radio Unit offering. Our broadband Radio Units, agile in both frequency and air interface, are ideally suited to the demands of an everchanging spectrum environment. Future trends including CBRS spectrum sharing and the recent announcement by the Department of Defense will only bolster demand." "We are collaborating with NewEdge to build a stronger Open RAN ecosystem. The NewEdge Radios will be O-RAN compliant and will interoperate with our CU & DU solutions," said Steve Papa, founder and CEO of Parallel Wireless. "We are delighted to collaborate on market-specific opportunities that leverage the strengths of each entity and usher in the era of Open RAN." "All Purpose Networks is excited to collaborate with other leading Open RAN suppliers. One of the key items that needs to be addressed when assembling hardware and software from different vendors is security. APN has spent considerable time and effort addressing this very concern and has been issued over 30 patents that are at the core of the MEC (Multiple Access Edge Computing) and Open RAN revolution," said Jim Brewington – founder and Chairman of APN.
