www.radisys.com Introduction New applications such as augmented reality, virtual reality and IoT are creating unprecedented demands for performance, latency, capacity and scale that next-generation networks must able to meet — and meet within budget. To meet these demands, next-gen networks will require innovative and disruptive approaches in how they are architected. The open Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter (CORD) project offers one approach. Radisys M-CORD: The Open Platform for Emerging 5G Applications S O L U T I O N B R I E F As the highest source of CapEx and OpEx in the network, the current Central Office inhibits innovation. By transforming it into a data center, it offers up a great vantage point for service providers to enable newer services. The CORD platform is architected to re-invent the Central Office as a data center, and it is based on the three core concepts: • Cloud Computing – the agility of cloud computing such as orchestration, scaling and migration. • SDN – splitting of control and user plane functionalities and usage of white box switches to perform user plane functionalities as much as possible. • NFV – usage of virtualized infrastructure instead of traditional proprietary platform solutions that create vendor lock-in.
