VMware, at its flagship event VMworld 2019, announced that it has expanded its telco and Edge cloud portfolio to drive real-time intelligence for telco networks, as well as improved automation and security for telco, Edge and IoT applications. The company announced that it is focusing on enabling to efficiently deploy and monetize their 4G and 5G network investments through an expanded set of use cases targeting enterprise customers.

VIO 6.0 will provide communication service providers with a common platform that has consistent policies in a multi-cloud environment. The latest release of VMware Smart Assurance with VMware Integrated OpenStack provides assurance capabilities that will deliver service impact and root-cause analysis with visibility across physical and virtual OpenStack networks, as well as multi-cloud networks. With Smart Assurance and VIO 6.0, communication service providers will gain an automated approach to operational intelligence to reduce service impact and operational expenses.

The company announced the closure of its acquisition of Uhana, an AI-based solution for tuning radio access networks (RANs); the next release of its OpenStack solution, VMware Integrated OpenStack (VIO) 6.0; and the on-premises version of Pulse IoT Center. Said Shekar Ayyar, executive vice president and general manager, Telco and Edge Cloud, “Furthermore, with the addition of AI-based learning capabilities from our Uhana acquisition, telco and Edge clouds will become significantly smarter in their capability to provide better service and remediate and correct faults quicker.”

There was also the introduction of VMware NSX Advanced Load Balancer; new and enhanced network and security analytics capabilities, delivered through VMware vRealize Network Insight 5.0 and NSX Intelligence; and continued advancements of VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud, the industry’s only hyperscale cloud networking solution.

Collectively, these solutions enable VMware to deliver the public cloud experience across any infrastructure, spanning from edge to private data centers, to public clouds. This agility can only be achieved through the automation of all network services, which requires having all switching, routing, security and load balancing services defined in software, centrally managed, and running on distributed, general purpose servers.

Explained Tom Gillis, senior vice president and general manager, networking and security business unit, VMware—“VMware is a leader in next-generation software-defined networking and security, delivering consistent, pervasive connectivity and intrinsic security to apps, data and users wherever they reside. We extend this virtual infrastructure across public and private clouds, all the way to the network edge, and our advanced analytics capabilities provide the visibility and troubleshooting needed to make the Virtual Cloud Network easy to operate.”
