Radisys Provides AI-based Media Applications on OpenNESS Multi-access Edge Compute Platform

Radisys® Corporation, a global leader of open telecom solutions, has announced the deployment of the Radisys Engage portfolio of digital engagement and AI-based real-time media applications on Open Network Edge Services Software (OpenNESS), an open source multi-access edge compute (MEC) platform initiative led by Intel to accelerate innovation and unique experiences on 4G/LTE and 5G networks, the company said.

The advent of 5G and massive IoT applications require ultra-low latency, high-bandwidth, and real-time access to radio network resources, to the rise of multi-access edge computing to enable virtualized applications to be deployed on compute resources closest to the edge. However, the lack of broad industry standardization for MEC has led to fragmentation in the development and deployment of MEC platforms, thereby hindering wide-scale adoption.

The OpenNESS platform abstracts complex networking technology and provides microservices/APIs resulting in an easy-to-use toolkit to develop and deploy applications at the network edge.

Radisys enables service providers to drive disruption with new open architecture business models. Radisys´ innovative disaggregated and virtualized enabling technology solutions leverage open reference architectures and standards, combined with open software and hardware to power business transformation for the telecom industry, while its world-class services organization delivers systems integration expertise necessary to solve communications and content providers´ complex deployment challenges.
