SUSE | February 09, 2023
On February 8, 2023, SUSE, a provider of innovative, open, and secure enterprise-grade solutions, introduced the SUSE Adaptive Telco Infrastructure Platform (ATIP), an edge computing platform optimized for telco. ATIP allows telecom companies to enhance and future-proof network modernization. It accomplishes this by employing an open and adaptable infrastructure that is adjusted for telco-grade performance and simplifies operations at scale.
Unlike current solutions on the market, the platform is designed from the ground up for the telco edge. As a result, it ensures quick rollouts with a highly scalable and programmable infrastructure management solution. As Europe's largest open-source infrastructure software market firm, the company developed this platform in close collaboration with major European telco operators such as Deutsche Telekom, Telecom Italia, Orange, Telefonica, and others.
ATIP packages critical infrastructure components such as Linux, Kubernetes, security, and management tools in a customizable form, allowing telco operators to adapt it quickly for a wide range of use cases across mobile and fixed networks. Moreover, because it supports a wide range of hardware, operators can reduce risk by utilizing their existing infrastructure. Its modularity and flexibility are designed to support and enable forward-thinking cloud frameworks like LF Europe's Sylva.
Its operating system layer offers low latency, real-time performance, and a quick data path to provide telco-grade performance. The Kubernetes layer ensures performance-sensitive applications run efficiently, while SUSE NeuVector offers total lifecycle container security. Rancher Prime, a leading Kubernetes management solution renowned for its convenience, robustness, and exceptional user experience, powers the platform. SUSE has also adjusted Rancher Prime for optimized telco use cases.
Nuremberg-based SUSE is a pioneer in innovative, secure, and dependable enterprise-grade open-source solutions, with over 60% of the Fortune 500 relying on it to power mission-critical workloads. It specializes in enterprise container management, business-critical Linux, and edge solutions. Working with partners and communities, the company enables customers to innovate anywhere, from data centers to the cloud. Its open-source solutions offer customers the agility to address innovation challenges today while also allowing them to evolve their strategy and solutions for the future.
