Keysight Joins Google Cloud Partner Initiative to Support Agile Orchestration of Innovative 5G Services at Network Edge
Keysight Technologies, Inc. a number one technology company that delivers advanced design and validation methods to help accelerate innovation for connecting and secure the planet, announced it's joined Google Cloud’s partner initiative to aid agile orchestration of innovative 5G services in the network edge.
A growing quantity of mobile operators are leveraging cloud and edge computing to create high-speed, low-latency and secure connectivity to the network edge while optimizing operational efficiencies. Keysight joined Google Cloud’s partner initiative to allow a cloud-centric 5G ecosystem to connect a software-driven infrastructure from the edge of radio stations access network (RAN) towards the core.
“As a Google Cloud partner, Keysight will support service providers transitioning to cloud and edge computing, which are required for delivering advanced applications and employ cases for example streaming media, cloud gaming, connected vehicles, private wireless networks and immersive experiences,” said Scott Bryden, vice president of Keysight’s operator industry solutions group. “Keysight’s solutions across wireless and wireline technologies enable hyperscalers and mobile operators to create unified, heterogenous networks that support an array of use cases, requirements and applications.”
Telecom providers are migrating network and application operations to cloud-native, container-based solutions. 5G deployments in standalone (SA) mode using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware with open standard interfaces are accelerating virtualization RAN architectures and network slicing technology. This digital transformation is unlocking innovation at the network edge with real-time information systems that's nearer to where data is collected and consumed.
“Low latency use of cloud capabilities and applications is increasingly essential for businesses operating in the network edge,” said Tanuj Raja, Global Head, Strategic Partnerships at Google Cloud. “We’re delighted to partner with Keysight to assist communications providers roll out cloud-native 5G quickly and cost-effectively, and ultimately to allow greater connectivity for purchasers in the edge.”
Keysight provides a number of solutions for validating early designs, system interoperability and performance, network and end-point security, as well as compliance to 3GPP and O-RAN specifications. Keysight’s end-to-end solution portfolio, built on common hardware and software platforms, enables a cloud-centric ecosystem to hurry deployment of multi-access edge computing (MEC), network function virtualization (NFV) and artificial intelligence (AI) technology. This enables mobile operators to confidently orchestrate innovative wireless connectivity services close to the network.
