Dell Technologies introduces new telecom solutions

Dell Technologies has unveiled new telecommunications solutions and services that aim to ‘bolster the open telecom ecosystem’ and help communications service providers (CSPs) affordably ramp their transformation to open, cloud-native networks.

The Dell Telecom Multi-Cloud Foundation is described as a turnkey, end-to-end modern network infrastructure solution that helps CSPs build and deploy open, cloud-native networks faster with lower cost and complexity. It includes Dell hardware, Dell Bare Metal Orchestrator management software and the CSPs’ choice of integrated telecom cloud software platforms, including Red Hat, VMware and Wind River.

The addition of Dell Bare Metal Orchestrator Modules to Dell’s software gives CSPs the ability to deploy and lifecycle manage the entire cloud foundation stack, Dell said. Once implemented, CSPs will have a scalable cloud foundation spanning core, edge and RAN for their open hardware and software environment with flexibility to design and deploy open network functions and differentiated edge services. 

Developed in collaboration with Marvell, the Dell Open RAN Accelerator Card is a new inline 5G Layer 1 processing card for vRAN and Open RAN solutions. Designed for Dell PowerEdge and other x86-based servers, the PCIe accelerator card utilises Marvell OCTEON Fusion technology. It aims to allow CSPs better performing systems that lower cost and power consumption, and affordably scale high performing, modern radio access networks with an open architecture approach.

Dell is continuing to grow its open partner ecosystem with new telecom solutions for edge and core, including Dell Validated Design for Services Edge 1.2 and Dell Validated Design for the 5G Core with Oracle and VMware.

CSPs can also operationalise network infrastructure with Dell ProDeploy for NFVI, combining Dell factory integration and field deployment options to build the NFV infrastructure specific to each customer’s network. 

The Dell Open Telecom Ecosystem Lab Solution Integration Platform helps CSPs and partners securely connect their lab resources to the Dell lab and infrastructure to develop and bring 5G and telecom edge services to market quickly.

“Communications service providers are changing how they build and deploy open networks, establishing the foundation on which they can develop and deliver innovative services to capture the edge opportunity,” said Dennis Hoffman, senior vice president and general manager, Dell Technologies Telecom Systems Business. 

“Our expanded telecom solutions portfolio brings the open ecosystem together for network operators, giving them the simplicity and reliability they need to modernise their networks and monetise new services.”
