Radisys Contributes LTE-RAN Software for M-CORD to Open Source

Radisys has open sourced its industry-validated and tested LTE RAN software, making it available under the Apache 2.0 license for ON.Lab’s open Mobile-CORD (Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter) 5G architecture.

The M-CORD reference solution brings the CORD framework to the mobile edge of the network for 5G services.

Radisys said that by delivering an open source RAN for M-CORD, its is enabling communications service providers to fast track their migrations from the traditional Central Office to virtualized data centers built with open source components.

“By making Radisys’ LTE RAN software open sourced, Radisys further cements its commitment to the open source movement as integral part of our corporate strategy to enable communications service providers to avoid vendor lock-in and reduce time-to-market,” said Brian Bronson, president and CEO, Radisys. “Radisys’ LTE RAN software is field-hardened and proven globally in deployments around the world. By bringing our LTE RAN to the open source community through M-CORD, we can enable a 5G platform today while also focusing on delivery of a 5G RAN solution.”

“Coming on the heels of Radisys delivering the industry’s first Evolved Packet Core open source software for M-CORD, the addition of an open source LTE RAN solution to M-CORD provides communications service providers with an accelerated path to deploying 5G services,” said Guru Parulkar, executive director, ONF, ON.Lab and Stanford Platform Lab. “Radisys has been a leading proponent of M-CORD as a system integrator and this new open source software offering underscores its unparalleled commitment to M-CORD’s success. We look forward to continuing our collaboration efforts with the Radisys team and supplying open source architectures that aid in the deployment of 5G.”

Radisys’ open source LTE RAN reference solution for the M-CORD reference architecture will be available March 2017. Radisys’ own M-CORD solution is a compilation of the company’s open source LTE RAN and EPC reference architecture pre-integrated and deployed on its DCEngine platform – an open hardware solution based on the OCP-ACCEPTED CG-OpenRack-19 specification from the Open Compute Project. The combination of this open software and hardware solution with Radisys’ integration, validation and custom development services delivers a service provider-ready solution.

Radisys and China Unicom Partner on M-CORD

Radisys and China Unicom are partnering to build and integrate Mobile CORD (M-CORD) development PODs that use open source software.

M-CORD, built on top of ONOS and the CORD (Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter) open source project, combines data center economics and the agility of the cloud with the benefits of a virtualized and disaggregated mobile core, as well as access infrastructure and mobile edge computing for innovation and deployment of 5G services.

Under the partnership, Radisys, acting as a CORD systems integrator, will leverage CORD’s open reference implementation to bring China Unicom’s network cloud agility and improved economics.  The companies will work together to develop deployment scenarios for this solution in China Unicom’s network.

Radisys said M-CORD makes mobility more cost-efficient, more software-programmable and more cloud-elastic. The emerging platform is seen supporting 5G services in three key areas: mobile edge services, virtualized Radio Access Network (RAN), and virtualized Evolved Packet Core (EPC). Additionally, Radisys and China Unicom will develop together an open reference implementation of a virtualized RAN (vRAN) and an open reference implementation of next-generation mobile core architecture with observability and analytics.

“As China Unicom evolves its network from 4G to 5G, it requires a fully virtualized and disaggregated infrastructure to better serve its residential, enterprise and mobile customers,” said Joseph Sulistyo, senior director of open networking solutions, Radisys. “We’re confident that together we can build and integrate an M-CORD POD to facilitate a robust 5G mobility infrastructure, thereby enabling China Unicom to rapidly deploy new 5G services on its network.”

“China Unicom is collaborating with Radisys to collectively develop technology enablers and use cases for 5G services,” said Dr. Tang Xiongyan, CTO, Network Technology Research Institute, China Unicom. “Radisys will also provide us with its recommended deployment scenarios and feasibility analysis as well as an effective prototype demonstration of the solution in our mobile network. We’re encouraged that its efforts will yield great results for our subscribers.”

Radisys Releases Open Source M-CORD Software

Radisys has released its Evolved Packet Core (EPC) software as open source software under the Apache 2.0 license for ON.Lab’s Mobile-CORD (M-CORD) project.

M-CORD is built on top of ONOS and CORD (Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter), which was initially developed by ON.Lab as a use case for the ONOS open source SDN operating system. CORD aims to utilize merchant silicon and the elasticity of commodity clouds to enable data center economics and cloud agility in the central office environment. CORD is managed as an independent open source project under The Linux Foundation.

Radisys said the integration of open source mobile core applications like EPC will provide enhanced service flexibility and agility in enabling 5G service delivery on the M-CORD platform.

“As communications service providers are planning today what their 5G networks of tomorrow will look like, we believe that now is the time for Radisys to deliver the open source resources to enable innovation for M-CORD as the emerging 5G platform,” said Brian Bronson, president and CEO, Radisys. “Radisys is firmly committed to the open source movement in both software and hardware. By making our EPC software available under open source license, we’re lowering the barrier to entry to service providers deploying next-generation 5G wireless networks.”

The three key components of the M-CORD framework include mobile edge services, a disaggregated/virtualized Radio Access Network (RAN), and a disaggregated/virtualized EPC. Radisys’ open source EPC provides disaggregated and virtualized core services of Mobility Management Entity (MME), Serving Gateway (SGW) and Packet Data Network Gateway (PGW) elements.

Radisys’ open source EPC contribution, including completed integration with the M-CORD framework, will be available in March 2017.
