• What Telco Cloud Infrastructure Delivers 

    Hybrid IaaS & CaaS Infrastructure

    Modernize your cloud to run both VNFs and CNFs side-by-side with the consistent horizontal infrastructure and deploy them throughout 5G networks, from core to edge.

    Cloud-First Telco Network

    Achieve powerful network resiliency, seamless cross-cloud application continuity, and complete multi-tenant service isolation. Reduce costs through consolidated network functions and simplified management. Deploy security policies both within and between VNFs and CNFs using micro-segmentation.

    Automated Lifecycle Management

    Simplify infrastructure deployments throughout 5G networks, from core to edge, with Telco Cloud Automation. Automate bare metal provisioning of new sites as well as network expansion through pre-set templates and zero-touch-provisioning.

    Accelerated VNF/CNF Performance

    Architect the network for optimum application response, scale, and service availability using resource guarantees, isolation, monitoring, and closed loop remediation. Achieve low-latency data plane performance and scaling through enhanced networking with NSX.

    Intent-Based Service Assurance

    Implement continuous performance optimization based on business and operational intent. Improve capacity utilization through real-time predictive capacity analytics and automatic resource reclamation. Realize 360-degree network visibility with automatic topology discovery, converged overlay and underlay visibility, and real-time network insights.

    Ready for Telco Cloud Partner Program

    VMware actively cooperates with multiple network function vendors including all key NEPs, having them certify in the VMware Ready for Telco Cloud program. This is a comprehensive certification program that ensures interoperability and operational readiness between third-party-developed network functions and the ETSI-compliant VMware Telco Cloud platform. The program helps ensure that CSPs can rapidly onboard and deploy multi-vendor network functions with the VMware Telco Cloud platform. VMware Telco Cloud Automation leverages this program to certify interoperability with network function vendors, offering a neutral and pre-tested end-to-end MANO solution.
