Wind River collaborates with BT on Edge Cloud Computing for 5G

Wind River has collaborated with BT on a research activity showcasing edge cloud compute applications. The joint proof of concept will be demonstrated by Wind River at SDN NFV World Congress 2018 and features Wind River Titanium Cloud, a deployment-ready virtualization software platform.

5G applications will require locating compute power and capacity close to where the traffic originates, whereas application logic has traditionally resided in the data center. However, 5G applications such as those for autonomous driving or Industrial IoT, where physical controls require extremely low latency, will demand diverse network locations for their logic. In these cases, computing will often need to happen much closer to the end device.

Running on a BT cellular base station, the proof of concept platform features an edge cloud compute node using the Titanium Cloud virtualization platform and a local traffic offload capability from Athonet, a software-based mobile core provider.

The proof of concept highlights multiple 5G edge cloud computing use cases, including those for next-generation connected automobiles and also for augmented/virtual reality: remote vehicle control for traffic/route management; vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication for collision avoidance; augmented reality for multi-person sessions without gameplay disruption.

The Titanium Cloud portfolio includes a fully integrated, reliable, and deployment-ready virtualization platform that enables service providers to deploy virtualized services faster, at lower cost, and with high uptime. Titanium Cloud provides an ideal software infrastructure for the rigorous demands of critical infrastructure applications such as telecommunications networks and industrial control.

Beyond the current proof of concept, BT works across the ecosystem with technology experts such as Athonet, Akamai, and others to advance edge cloud computing. Akamai and Athonet are also members of the Wind River Titanium Cloud Ecosystem, dedicated to delivering interoperable standard products optimized for deployment with Titanium Cloud to help accelerate time-to-market for service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers.
