Radisys DCEngine Aims to Spread Open Source Hardware and Software

March 21, 2016

Services acceleration company Radisys Corporation recently launched DCEngine as part of its portfolio of solutions designed to help service providers solve the complex challenges inherent to making the move to next generation networks. This release comes not long after the company introduced two SDN-enabled FlowEngine platforms, the TDE-200 and TDE-500.

Radisys’ latest release is based on the principles of the Open Compute Project (OCP), a group started by a team of Facebook engineers with the goal of making open source hardware more commonplace. The effort is backed by a number of the world’s biggest technology and communications companies, including AT&T, Google, Microsoft, Intel, Dell and more.

As such, DCEngine provides a disruptive cloud platform that goes above and beyond software-defined networking to create a truly open, software-defined services delivery infrastructure that embraces open source hardware and software technologies. Designed specifically to meet the unique needs of communication service providers, the solution also offers the kind of DevOps agility service providers need today.

Radisys has already received initial orders for DCEngine, which began shipping to one of the world’s largest mobile operators in late 2015. More meaningful deployments are expected as this operator continues to build out its infrastructure, while other trials with service providers and cable providers expected to accelerate over the course of this year.

“Radisys’ 25-plus years of communication software DNA, coupled with our leadership in open telecommunication platforms, positions us as the ideal partner for communication service providers looking to evolve from existing central office architecture to the cloud,” said Brian Bronson, president and chief executive officer at Radisys. “DCEngine’s seamless scalability and efficient lifecycle management, coupled with our proven track record of understanding and addressing the needs of the service provider, positions Radisys to be a leader in enabling the evolution of next-generation operator infrastructure.”

DCEngine offers a broad range of advantages and capabilities. Chief among those is a pre-installed, ready-to-deploy frame inspired by OCP as an open architecture for Radisys, as well as third-party partners. Aside from that, DCEngine offers unparalleled performance and scalability, a flexible software and management framework, and a design that meets the needs of next generation central office and service provider data centers.

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.
