The collaboration will utilize Red Hat’s hybrid cloud portfolio including Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat OpenStack Platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform and Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage.
In addition, this partnership will also utilize Samsung’s 5G vRAN, vCore, MEC and management and analytics to help service providers extend 5G-based use cases, such as edge computing that can positively impact the customer experience.
With this solution, service providers will be able to capitalize on the benefits of edge economics and vRAN.
Containerized network functions (CNFs) and virtualized network functions (VNFs) provide a path to transformation for modern telcos. As such, Samsung received Red Hat’s vendor validated VNF Certification and plans to have full CNF Certification.
