Radisys Rewarded for Innovation with INTERNET TELEPHONY NFV Pioneer Award

May 06, 2016

When I think of the term pioneer, it elicits visions of settlers, trail blazers and westward wagons. Obviously, the West has long been settled, and the pioneers in the modern era are still fearless in going where others have not, but the race today is about innovation and development. An area of technology seeing strong interest is virtualization, and the pioneers of today are harnessing this burgeoning technology to make the data center faster, more efficient and scalable.

This week, Radisys’ DCEngine was bestowed the INTERNET TELEPHONY NFV Pioneer Award for the strides the firm is making in improving Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). The solution takes a service provider’s central offices and turns them into SDN-enabled virtualized data center. Several months back the solution was implemented in one of the world’s larger service provider’s infrastructure to create a DevOps-enabled data center environment.

“Congratulations to Radisys for receiving a 2016 INTERNET TELEPHONY NFV Pioneer Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “DCEngine has demonstrated true innovation and is leading the way for Network Function Virtualization. I look forward to continued excellence from Radisys in 2016 and beyond.”

DCEngine offers a high level of flexibility to specifically address the ebbs and flow of telco network demands. Service providers utilize the solution to provide reservoirs of storage and compute resources to ensure exceptional service and a high level of scalability.

“Radisys is committed to helping service providers address their unique cloud requirements to deploy services quickly,” said Bryan Sadowski, vice president, FlowEngine Product Marketing, Radisys. “DCEngine is a low-cost infrastructure solution that allows for unified workloads and eliminates purpose-built hardware, enabling services to be deployed much more quickly. We also bring to the table 25+ years of experience in providing hardware and software integration services, making Radisys the ideal partner for service providers transitioning to the hyperscale data center model.”

While in a literal sense Radisys isn’t trekking along the Oregon Trail, it is certainly charting a course toward the modern frontier: virtualization.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
