IBM Cloud for Telecommunication is built on top of Red Hat OpenShift. It strives to accelerate business transformation, enhance digital client engagements. The tech firm says that telecom operators are struggling to scale and support growing volumes of voice, data, and multimedia services.
Majority of the communication service providers need to virtualise their entire network across locations. Most of them are not even prepared to virtualise in a cloud-native environment.
The tech platform follows hybrid and open cloud architecture allowing telecom operators with more agility as the 5G and edge tech becomes reality. Each of these applications requires accessibility, privacy, low latency and control.
IBM cloud along with its telecom partners plan to achieve the modernised IT architecture, connectivity and applications at the edge that gain momentum. IBM says that its global integrators will build practices to help customers deploy solutions based on IBM cloud. Top tech firms including Wipro, HCL, Tech Mahindra are the channel partners of IBM.
Howard Boville, Senior Vice President of the hybrid cloud said, “We are excited to work more closely with relevant partners to help clients modernize IT and network workloads with Red Hat OpenShift, for hybrid cloud environments in telecommunications. We also look forward to our future ecosystem partners leveraging this platform to provide new, innovative solutions and services to our joint clients.”
