Arrcus and VMware to Build Telco Cloud for 5G Services

Arrcus | February 23, 2023 | Read time : 01:25 min


On February 22, 2023, Arrcus, a hyperscale networking software firm recognized for its expertise in core, edge, and multi-cloud network infrastructure, is featuring its work with VMware at Mobile World Congress 2023. The partners provide a truly modernized telco cloud by allowing communication service providers (CSPs) to rapidly develop next-generation 5G services.

The combination of the Arrcus Connected Edge (ACE) platform with VMware Telco Cloud Platform architecture offers CSPs end-to-end slicing for 5G, spanning from radio access network (RAN), multi-access edge computing (MEC) to core networks. By utilizing Arrcus' advanced traffic engineering technology, this capability allows CSPs to divide their networks into smaller, more manageable segments that can be effortlessly monitored and controlled.

As a result, CSPs can now establish distinct policies and service level agreements (SLAs) for individual customers and applications across various network slices, significantly enhancing their ability to introduce new and innovative services. Additionally, both CSPs and their customers can expect faster service delivery and enhanced network scalability.

The joint solution also provides CSPs with the advantage of network automation. CSPs can generate instances throughout their radio access network (RAN), 5G core, (MEC)/edge, and transport networks. Furthermore, the Arrcus-VMware solution delivers a service assurance platform that offers a transport network, 5G core, and RAN telemetry. This ensures that CSPs receive metadata on crucial network parameters.

Arrcus CEO and Chairman Shekar Ayyar commented, "CSPs need truly modern infrastructure to gain the greatest value from their 5G investments." He added, "Arrcus' ACE platform and our partnership with VMware provide CSPs with an agile network overlay to automate network operations, expedite the delivery of new services on and monetize their 5G infrastructure."

Workspot, the Cloud PC company, announced today that its world-class Center of Excellence (COE), a unique customer advocacy program led by a team of the foremost virtual desktop and public cloud experts, now incorporates the expertise of its Cloud Alliance partners, expanding the reach of the program to drive customer success. With its white-glove Cloud PC implementation framework, the COE has earned Workspot a Net Promoter Score of 80 in its most recent customer survey – the very best in class. With today’s complex enterprise requirements, most customers are not internally equipped with the unique blend of end user computing and multi-cloud skill sets needed for successful Cloud PC implementation. In response to customer needs, Workspot packaged the three key cornerstones of a successful Cloud PC implementation – people, product and process – to form the COE. Now this same, proven framework can be used by Workspot’s elite Cloud Alliance partners, incorporating each partner’s unique capabilities for serving customers. “Six years ago, with the deep expertise of Workspot’s Customer Success Team, it took us only a week to deploy our Workspot cloud workstations and realize value, unlike the months it took to get just one desktop running with on-prem VDI,” said Israel Sumano, Senior Director of Infrastructure at Southland Industries. “Since then, the Center of Excellence has delivered the expertise and innovative tools that enable us to collaborate closely with Workspot on strategic initiatives that make our business more agile and secure. Workspot’s COE is like nothing else I’ve experienced in the virtual desktop industry, and we continue to realize tremendous value from this unique relationship.” “Workspot’s Center of Excellence delivers fast time-to-first-value and ROI for enterprise Cloud PC customers” said Mike Strohl, CEO Entisys360. “As a member of the Cloud Alliance Program, we’ll complement the COE processes and tools with our vast expertise with virtual desktops, thereby enabling us to deliver tremendous value to our customers.” Spearheaded by VP of Customer Success and former Workspot customer Matthew Davidson, the Workspot COE brings together the industry’s best end user computing and cloud experts for an unmatched implementation experience. “When I sat in the customer seat, the customer success team was one of the strongest selling points for Workspot’s Cloud PC solution during the evaluation process,” Davidson reflects. “Ultimately, I was so inspired by the ease of the implementation that I joined the Workspot team to help other companies streamline their digital transformation with Cloud PCs.” To provide expert guidance throughout the implementation process, Workspot leverages Workspot Watch, the company’s big data collection and analysis system, which continuously provides insights into Cloud PC performance and connectivity, proactively identifying root causes and behavioral patterns often before customers are even aware of a problem. In addition to its state-of-the art tools, Workspot uses customer-centric processes and methodologies to ensure long-term success. Between its ADIME methodology, onboarding services, outstanding customer support, customer success update meetings and executive business reviews, Workspot delivers a carefully defined process aimed at business uptime, addressing new requirements and innovating collaboratively. “The Center of Excellence is the foundation of the Workspot Cloud PC success formula,” said Amitabh Sinha, Co-Founder and CEO of Workspot. “Now our Cloud Alliance Partners bring their deep expertise to the COE as well, ensuring a high-quality experience for our joint customers as we deploy Cloud PCs into Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Amazon Web Services.” About Workspot Workspot is the only cloud-native solution that delivers enterprise-class Cloud PCs.
