Wind River, T-Systems Deliver 5G Cloud Network Management

Wind River®, a provider of delivering software for the intelligent edge, has announced that T-Systems is using Wind River Cloud Platform edge cloud infrastructure software for its EdgAIR secure and high-performance edge computing platform, the company said.

A Deutsche Telekom subsidiary, T-Systems is a world-leading information and communications technology (ICT) provider. Its EdgAIR platform performs as a private enterprise edge cloud and can be connected to a campus network by supporting various network and protocol standards (5G, Wi-Fi 6, TSN, etc.).

The platform is secure and delivers low latency (<10 milliseconds) for real-time onsite applications such as the processing of massive amounts of data. EdgAIR runs on a closed enterprise network but can be combined with a public cloud to enable hybrid cloud offerings. EdgAir can also provide analytics that enable teams to evaluate performance and other critical information in real time and supports operational technology (OT) standards and workloads. Combining a fully cloud native and Kubernetes- and container-based architecture, Cloud Platform is a high-performance production grade offering for managing edge cloud infrastructure. It leverages the open source project StarlingX to simplify Day 1 and Day 2 operations by providing single-pane-of-glass (SPoG) management and zero-touch automated deployment of thousands of nodes, no matter their location. The platform also provides fully automated and hitless software updates and upgrades across a geo-distributed cloud, with rollback capabilities. The platform scales from a single compute node at the network edge to enable ultra-low cost deployments up to thousands of nodes to meet the needs of high-value applications as they grow. Wind River is a global provider of delivering software for the edge. The company´s technology has been powering the safest, most secure devices in the world since 1981 and is found in more than 2 billion products.
