Wind River Launches New vCPE Server

Wind River on Tuesday introduced a new release of its Titanium NFV server optimized for virtualized customer premises equipment (vCPE) deployments.

Titanium Server CPE is designed to run edge applications with small footprints, reducing total cost of ownership and management hassles for both service providers and their enterprise customers.

"We've had lots of interest from our customers to virtualize CPE functions in a cost-effective form factor and maintain carrier-grade reliability that you get in Titanium Server," Charlie Ashton, Wind River Systems Inc. director of business development, tells Light Reading.

Virtual CPE allows service providers to deploy functions to enterprise and residential customers without using specialized appliances, reducing truck rolls and other maintenance costs and enhancing agility as part of a New IP strategy.

Wind River's Titanium Server is intended to provide a carrier-grade NFV platform to run virtual network functions (VNFs) provided by partners. Titanium Server CPE is designed to be deployed at customer premises on two redundant server platforms, for enhanced reliability.

Titanium Server CPE follows the introduction in December of a reference design for virtual business customer premises equipment (vBCPE) by Wind River in collaboration with NFV partners Brocade Communications Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: BRCD), Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), InfoVista SA and Riverbed Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: RVBD). (See Wind River Teams Up for Virtual Business CPE R&D.)

Ashton discussed the reference design announcement with Light Reading in December:


Wind River also added new features to the entire Titanium Server line, including increased scalability, support for the latest high-performance network interface cards, IPv6 support for all interfaces, and more.

Executive Editor, Light Reading

San Diego-based Mitch Wagner is many things. As well as being "our guy" on the West Coast (of the US, not Scotland, or anywhere else with indifferent meteorological conditions), he's a husband (to his wife), dissatisfied Democrat, American (so he could be President some day), nonobservant Jew, and science fiction fan. Not necessarily in that order.

He's also one half of a special duo, along with Minnie, who is the co-habitor of the West Coast Bureau and Light Reading's primary chewer of sticks, though she is not the only one on the team who regularly munches on bark.

Wagner, whose previous positions include Editor-in-Chief at Internet Evolution and Executive Editor at InformationWeek, will be responsible for tracking and reporting on developments in Silicon Valley and other US West Coast hotspots of communications technology innovation.

Beats: Software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), IP networking, and colored foods (such as 'green rice').
