LTE is rapidly becoming the standard of choice for mobile network operators around the world. The reliability of an LTE network hinges on its eNodeB hardware that links the network to the users’ devices. Conventional eNodeBs are straining to meet the exploding demand for data. Altiostar is the mobile telecommunication industry’s first provider of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) C-RAN with Ethernet fronthaul. Altiostar’s remarkable approach enables more widespread deployment of the C-RAN architecture to support today’s software and data-intensive requirements. To maximize reliability and deliver a quality user experience, Altiostar needed an NFV platform that offered carrier grade availability while using open source software, could scale to support a large eNodeB cluster, and was optimized for Intel® hardware for fast data path and ultra low latency call processing. Altiostar didn’t want to build this unique platform by themselves.
Wind River® Titanium Server, the comprehensive software platform for NFV, met all of Altiostar’s requirements. Titanium Server enables an NFV infrastructure to achieve the “always on” reliability and high performance that telecommunication networks demand. In addition, by leveraging proven, commercial off-the-shelf software, Altiostar helped significantly drive down the total cost of ownership for its customers. By selecting Wind River® Titanium Server, a fully integrated and optimized platform, Altiostar was able to speed time-to-market and deliver a dependable product that helped mobile network operators expand their LTE networks quickly and efficiently, in the most feature-rich and cost-effective way.
