Business Benefits & Industry Firsts:

CORD has been embraced by leading service providers around the world and is defining the edge cloud of the future. This showcase demonstrates additional benefits that will continue to fuel adoption, including these industry firsts:

  • New 100x performance, cost, power and space savings enabled by industry-first hardware-based VNF acceleration with SDN
  • Per-subscriber real-time orchestration, with XOS chaining together VNFs on both servers and programmable P4 switches to instantiate custom services for individual subscribers
  • Hierarchical orchestration and automation, with ONAP as a global orchestrator and CORD as the intelligent edge cloud infrastructure with real-time subscriber orchestration
  • Interoperability with ETSI MEC, demonstrating the flexibility of the CORD architecture
  • First commercial grade virtual function (vMRF) with complete life-cycle management and policy driven automation via ONAP on CORD platform
  • Demonstrating the power of open source with 17 collaborating organizations creating a single unified 5G demo in just 3 months
  • Mobile Access Edge Compute services including VoLTE, edge video processing, and advanced VR/AR requiring high bandwidth low latency services on CORD platform
