Wind River: new cloud platform simplifies Telco deployments of secure edge computing

Enabling service providers to efficiently address a wide range of edge-hosted applications, Wind River has introduced the Titanium Edge SX edge cloud platform. As the latest product within the Titanium Cloud portfolio, Titanium Edge SX consolidates control, compute and storage nodes into an integrated software package that can be deployed in a “simplex” configuration on a single low-cost physical server.

To support interactive, real-time MEC applications like Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, connected vehicles and tele-surgery, Titanium Edge SX delivers an ultra-low, deterministic interrupt latency of 10μs or less, thanks to a comprehensive set of enhancements to the integrated KVM hypervisor. At the same time, its accelerated virtual switch (vSwitch) delivers upto 40x the switching performance of kernel-based vSwitches, thereby minimizing the number of processor cores required for switching and maximizing the number available for running VMs. This in turn maximizes the number of users supported on a single server, which is key to reducing the overall costper-subscriber.

Titanium Edge SX helps service providers to minimize their network operations costs, typically saving millions of dollars in installation, commissioning and maintenance when compared to Roll-Your-Own solutions. While the platform is delivered as a single, preintegrated image installed with no manual intervention, the intelligent orchestrated patching engine allows up to hundreds of nodes to be upgraded quickly and minimizes the length of maintenance windows.

Edge computing applications are often installed by the end users themselves, in open environments away from service provider data centers, Central Offices (COs) or Pointsof- Presence (PoPs). These factors present unique security risks, which are addressed in Titanium Edge SX by a comprehensive setof end-to-end security features. These include: Unified Extensible Firmware Interface secure boot; cryptographically signed images for host protection; virtual Trusted Platform Module device for highest-security VM deployments; Transport Layer Security with certificate storage in TPM hardware (where available); secure keyring database for storage of encrypted passwords.

Collectively, these features and others ensure that edge applications running on Titanium Edge SX are protected against threats wherever they originate.
