Network function virtualization and containerization
With very high demands for performance, scale, availability and security, network function virtualization for telcos is more complex than for other domains. We’ll help you to navigate this complexity by identifying your requirements then selecting and seamlessly integrating the optimal virtualized core infrastructure to meet your needs.
|Provide a common infrastructure to co-host network functions from multiple vendors|
|Support high throughput you need for network applications|
|Meet SLAs adapted to network needs, with 99,999% of availability|
Along with virtualizing your infrastructure at the core, Atos also delivers Container-as-a-Service infrastructure, to simplify and accelerate the deployment of containers, to bring you the following benefits:
|More efficient use of hardware|
|Flexibility to use your own hardware, hybrid public and private cloud or any combination|
|Scalability and agility to adapt to your changing business needs|
Voice and mobile-data core network and Value-added services
Atos can help you to upscale existing services and launch new voice, messaging and data services in your virtualized environment (including a Services Delivery Platform, IMS solution, Messaging, Data Core packet, and Video Analytics). To deploy these services, we reuse and adapt from our catalog, reducing your costs and time to market by up to five times.
We guarantee the high scalability, performance and availability you require. These applications can be integrated into an orchestration and automation platform to ensure scalability and flexibility.
Multi-access edge computing and OpenRAN
Virtualization at the edge of your network will give you even more flexibility and cost-efficiency for deploying new customer services and applications. In addition to applications at the edge, Radio Access Networks (RAN) will also be virtualized. While remote radio units will remain on masts, baseband processing units will be virtualized and hosted at the edge. Open-RAN replaces vendor-proprietary interfaces with open standards, providing greater flexibility to select best-of-breed components. Atos will:
|Integrate advanced edge capabilities|
|Enhance the performance of applications that leverage 4G LTE / 5G networks|
|Enable you to offer new services and opportunities to your customers with powerful AI, analytics, new edge solutions|
Network management and orchestration
By implementing an orchestration platform, zero-touch network operations become a reality, lowering operating costs, simplifying the configuration of services, and bringing the benefits of agile, flexible virtualized network operation and maintenance.
Closed-loop, real-time AI and analytics integrated with automation and orchestration improves network reliability and ensures that operation and maintenance staff can work more efficiently, creating a truly data-driven, self-optimizing network.
|Transforming the operating model|
|Implementing automation and orchestration solutions|
|Embedding actionable data|
Cloud Forward with Atos OneCloud
With Atos OneCloud initiative telco’s can accelerate migration to the Cloud through a one-stop shop offering industry specific go-to-market and organization. Atos OneCloud will allow network service providers to unleash the business potential of Cloud through business processes optimization and application modernization, making them more agile, more mobile, more data driven and more customer centric.
Atos provides a comprehensive suite of cyber security products, services and expertise to secure Next-Generation Telecoms Networks. These include: Trust way solutions to protect data; hardware security modules to safeguard and manage digital keys, perform encryption and decryption functions for digital signatures, with strong authentication and other cryptographic functions; Identity and Access Management to manage user access; and Public Key infrastructure to create, manage, distribute, use, store and revoke digital certificates and manage public-key encryption.
Accelerating your decarbonization journey
By design, Next-Generation Telecoms Networks will contribute to reducing carbon emissions and increasing energy efficiency of mobile networks. Atos can accelerate the digital transformation of your core network to benefit from the most efficient core network solutions and latest radio generation. Atos’ Cognitive Datacenter technology can be applied across the whole range of environments, from large data centers down to the ‘micro-data centers’ of cell towers. This is an autonomous and intelligent data center that analyzes events in real time to improve application and infrastructure availability and performance.
From autonomous cars, to connected healthcare, to mobility-as-a-service, new hyperconnectivity is transforming how people live and work. 5G will help revolutionize the experiences and services that telecoms companies (telcos) can offer.
Atos implements Next-Generation Intelligent Network solution across various A1 Telekom subsidiaries, which currently use a range of different platforms and will manage rollout in Austria, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia.
Only a few years after the telecom NFV (Network Function Virtualization) revolution, a new trend in mobile digital communication has emerged: virtualization of the Radio Access Network (vRAN)
With the arrival of 5G, Big Data will soon become Enormous Data. More and more data will have to be processed at the edge of the Telecom network, close to the source of production.
Recently, with the advent of 5G and the possibilities it creates, the picture changes completely. So, what does this evolution of mobile private networks mean for telcos and their customers?
Roundtable webinar replay
Atos, IBM and IDC discussed about zero-touch network automation and the extend to which network managers must constantly grapple with unexpected network changes.
Cloudification is an increasingly essential way for any company to cut IT operating costs while gaining the flexibility and agility needed to survive and thrive in today’s fast-changing world.
Today’s telecoms consumers have a seemingly insatiable appetite for connectivity: higher speeds, cheaper data, better coverage and faster responses are all expected as part of daily life.
