Can Telcos Really Rely on Public Clouds?

NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) VoLTE VNF cloud native

From the mindset of traditional network operators, the public cloud is often viewed with some wariness. There are a host of objections to the public cloud that keep many service providers from considering this cloud environment in their network virtualization strategies. But we think that the public cloud does have a role to play future NFV deployments.

Container Mania Grips the Internet of Talk: Going cloud native for VoLTE with Kubernetes

VoLTE Containers mobile applications Mobile Infrastructure cloud native

I know many of you have been itching to hear more about my adventures with Pokémon Go, following this wildly unsuccessful attempt to garner more page visits by lashing a highly targeted piece (QoS for the Internet of Things) with a universally broad and trending general interest topic. Having made it through the end of the 2016 summer holidays, when most people of sound mind had stopped playing, I hung in there until mid-November, ultimately bidding adieu to Pikachu and hanging up my training pants having reached the moderately respectable level of 23. Knowing that status would forever be immortalized somewhere in the cloud, I somewhat unceremoniously and to the surprise of my kids, who had simultaneously mocked me while fraudulently assuming my persona when it suited them, deleted the app. What life lessons did I learn, in all that time spent catching critters, that I can now impart in a public forum like this? Absolutely nothing. Seriously. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. It really was a colossal waste of time.

Video Demo: A Complete VoLTE Deployment Running in Containers

Metaswitch | Apr 6, 2017 7:07:00 AM

VoLTE Mobile Infrastructure cloud native

While Network Operators love the concept of NFV, they are struggling to realize the promised cost savings. As part of our ongoing commitment to delivering innovative cloud native infrastructure solutions, Metaswitch is demonstrating a new approach to NFV, based around containers rather than virtual machines. Employing containers makes NFV much more responsive than previous approaches and opens up radical cost reductions, saving nearly 50 cent or -- 1 million dollars -- in platform costs over five years, for a 1 million consumer VoLTE IR.92 and IR.94 deployment. In this video you will see the Metaswitch VoLTE solution built-out for 1 million subscribers, running in containers, in an on premise cloud. In this demo, we are using bare metal containers but we could just as well be running the containers within VMs, if that methodology is preferred.

Metaswitch Powers the Internet of Talk

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) VoLTE mobile applications Mobile Infrastructure IoTalk

If you’ve been following our series here, you’ll know what we mean by the “Internet of Talk.” With so much energy dedicated to technology for connecting billions of devices in the Internet of Things (IoT), it’s important not to forget that people want to connect and talk to each other too. Even though messaging dominates how we communicate and traditional voice and SMS usage is shrinking, the richness of human interaction goes beyond emojis, acronyms and shortened, phonetic spellings.  AIBU? ;-) We want to use our voices and we need mobile networks that not only guarantee a decent experience but also make it even better. The Internet of Talk is about the infrastructure and services that enhance communication between people, not just things, and Metaswitch is at the heart of it.
