VMware Launches 5G Nextgen Network Virtualization for Malaysia
VMware, Inc announced its VMware vCloud NFV-OpenStack Edition 3.0, the next generation of the company’s production-proven network functions virtualization (NFV) platform for communications service providers (CSPs).
This update from VMware will enable breakthrough improvements in network performance, new carrier-grade networking capabilities, and intent-based service assurance to help improve the total economics of software-defined, open standards-based 5G and multi-cloud telco networks.
Sanjay K. Deshmukh, Vice President and Managing Director, South East Asia and Korea, VMware said,”Malaysia had an internet penetration rate of 85.7 percent as of 2017, where 97.7 percent of users preferred accessing the internet with mobile devices. We expect the push for 5G adoption to happen in the near future and in order for that to materialise, a new approach to the telco network and cloud is required to solve challenges associated with the hyper distribution of virtual network functions, applications and data,” said
VMware vCloud NFV delivers a 5G-ready NFV infrastructure platform, tuned to support rapid rollout of next-generation services with low latency and high network throughput, and support for a massively distributed set of end points and devices.
“Service providers are being pressed to deliver new and differentiated services faster, in an on-demand model, and maintain a high quality of experience for the user,” said Emily Ng, Regional Sales Director, VMware. “This requires a new architecture for network functions virtualization, while creating a delivery method that will support an all-IP infrastructure.
