A10 Networks has announced its participation in the Linux Foundation’s 5G cloud-native network proof of concept (POC) at this year’s KubeCon + CloudNativeCon. This will be the first public demonstration of A10 Networks’ carrier-class 5G container firewall, capable of delivering up to 180 Gbps throughput.
This live demo is being led by the Linux Foundation, Red Hat and China Mobile. It will take place during the keynote on November 20 at 10:00 a.m. PT.
The POC is a fully containerized, end-to-end 5G stand-alone (SA) and non-stand-alone (NSA) distributed cloud network. The infrastructure is a Kubernetes-based Red Hat OpenShift environment, implemented on Lenovo commercial off the shelf (COTS) servers. A10 Networks’ container-based firewall and carrier-grade network address translation (CGNAT) technologies are featured as part of the 5G cloud-native network proof of concept.
A10 Networks said it is focused on 5G security solutions with multiple tier-one 5G deployments that have required continued hyperscale, lower latency, agility, and advanced security.
