Exaware and Edgecore Networks Announce Strategic Partnership to Expand Networking Solutions for Global Communication Service Providers
Exaware, a leading provider of Open Networking software solutions, and Edgecore Networks, the leader in Open Networking hardware solutions, today announced a global partnership agreement, to jointly provide routing solutions for Communication Service Providers (CSPs). As part of the agreement, Exaware and Edgecore will combine their experience and expertise to integrate and distribute high-end routing solutions for Internet peering, datacenter gateway, provider edge, and access/aggregation applications.

Internet peering is a critical part of every CSP network, enabling two or more networks to connect and directly exchange traffic to ensure customers' access to global Internet content. With ExaNOS, Exaware’s feature-rich, high-scale Network Operating System, running on flagship Edgecore Network's hardware equipment, such as the AG130 (AS5916-54XKS), CSPs can now benefit from a robust and cost-effective Internet peering solution. Skillfully designed, the joint solution can process a comprehensive Internet routing table with unprecedented convergence time, together with high-scale BGP RIB, BGP-PIC Edge/Core, complemented by advanced peering features, including Route Leak, RPKI, and rich BGP policy language. In turn, this enables CSPs to break existing vendor lock-in and bring innovation to the heart of the network.

“Edgecore are very pleased to work together with Exaware. Combining robust hardware from Edgecore and advanced software from Exaware, we believe the communication service provider can enjoy the innovation and benefit of open networking,” said Heimdall Siao, President of Edgecore Networks. “As a provider of open networking solution to tier one operator worldwide, and leading contributor to OCP, ONF, and TIP open communities, we fully understand operator’s requirement to reduce the cost of network deployment while moving toward a more consistent and open infrastructure across the network.”

“Exaware is delighted to partner with Edgecore Networks. Their manufacturing quality, unrivaled market experience, and global reach, mean that together, we deliver powerful routing solutions that take full advantage of Open Networking benefits,Together, we deliver a flexible, high-scale and cost-effective routing system which also opens up the network to integrate third-party applications and generate new revenues from innovative services.”

Cloudera | August 13, 2021

Cloudera, Inc., (NYSE: CLDR), the enterprise data cloud company, today announced that LG Uplus has chosen Cloudera's data platform for improving its 5G network service quality and optimizing the customer experience. With Cloudera, LG Uplus is empowered to leverage the actionable intelligence and insights generated from the data to support its digital transformation initiatives and future proof its journey to the cloud. As one of the first telecommunication providers to commercialize 5G services, LG Uplus has been focused on bringing innovative services to its customers and enhancing the work efficiency of network workers since 2019. With Cloudera's data platform as its foundation, LG Uplus established the Network Real-time Analytic Platform (NRAP), which includes the necessary infrastructure to collect and analyze large-scale big data in real-time, from mobile devices to the service equipment of the telecommunication company. The NRAP improves data utilization and analysis accuracy by providing data lake and data warehouse capabilities that include the processing and transmission of terabytes of data within a few seconds to the integrated Network Management System (NMS). With the real-time data processing capability of NRAP, LG Uplus has been able to achieve business benefits such as improving the customer center's customer quality response time and pushing the service-based network quality monitoring level to near real-time, thereby improving customer satisfaction and reducing the overall amount of fieldwork. With an integrated platform that supports real-time quality monitoring and analysis of network services, LG Uplus collects and categorizes data by type and monitors it on a single dashboard to reduce overall network operation costs and improve work efficiency. Rolled out as a pilot at the time when 5G services first went commercial, the NRAP now manages hundreds of types and hundreds of terabytes of data generated daily from telecommunication network services, enabling LG Uplus to gain meaningful insights from the data and manage services for a total of 20 million users in South Korea. Using the NRAP, LG Uplus continues to power the next-generation network operating system and secure data competitiveness to support digital transformation in response to the post-COVID19 era that LG Group is actively promoting. Jin-Soo Jang, Manager of the NMS Development team at LG Uplus said, "LG Uplus was the first of its kind to launch a worldwide 5G network and has provided innovative services meeting the ever-changing needs of customers. By leveraging on data analytics, the NRAP has helped us to quickly respond to customer service quality issues while reducing the duplications in our operations. This has improved our work efficiencies, and sharpened LG Corporation's competitive advantage in our path toward digital transformation." Hyoung-Jun Kang, Country Manager of Cloudera Korea said, "Telecommunication providers are some of the largest aggregators of data and have access to a variety of data sources. To make the most of the increased volume, variety and complexity of data and gain the enterprise data insights that drive business value, telecommunication providers need to be able to handle any data, anywhere from the edge to AI. With Cloudera as the backbone of the NRAP, we are committed to supporting LG Uplus as it embraces a digital transformation journey that's underpinned by data management and analytics initiatives." About Cloudera At Cloudera, we believe that data can make what is impossible today, possible tomorrow. We empower people to transform complex data into clear and actionable insights. Cloudera delivers an enterprise data cloud for any data, anywhere, from the Edge to AI.
