Ericsson and Intel have partnered in developing a next-generation hardware management platform which they say will provide a new level of cloud-like agility, transparency and efficiency required for network functions virtualisation, distributed cloud, and 5G.

The two companies say that for service providers, the new infrastructure management solution will help speed time-to-market, maximise utilisation, and reduce total cost of ownership.

As part of the multi-faceted agreement, the companies say they will align development efforts of Ericsson SDI Manager software and Intel Rack Scale Design and extend these solutions with advanced management capabilities.

“These unified development efforts will allow operators to leverage multi-vendor hardware options, Ericsson’s end-to-end software solutions, and Intel’s latest architectural innovations,” the two companies say.

Lars Mårtensson, head of Cloud & NFV infrastructure, Business Area Digital Services, Ericsson, says: “We have a long history of successful collaboration with Intel. This new collaboration will focus on software in addition to hardware and we see it to be truly transformative for service providers’ ability to successfully deploy open cloud and NFV infrastructure, from centralised data centres to the edge. Intel’s and Ericsson’s joint efforts significantly strengthens the competitiveness and roadmap of the Ericsson Software Defined Infrastructure offering.”

“5G will be transformative, accelerating today’s applications and triggering a wave of new usages and edge-based innovation,” says Sandra Rivera, senior vice-president, Network Platform Group, Intel.

“Our infrastructure manageability collaboration with Ericsson will help communications service providers remove deployment barriers, reduce costs, and deliver new 5G and edge services with cloudlike speed on a flexible, programmable and intelligent network.”
