Cloud-Native Software-Defined Orchestration for Telco Service Delivery
Operators need to be able to add intelligence, quickly adapt the software for different services and automate to rapidly scale the network with the most efficient utilization of the hardware. At the same time, these networks must be robust & resilient.
The Robin Cloud-Native Platform includes an application-aware automation fabric with built-in application-aware high-performance Storage, ultra-high-speed networking and Data Management features to support the demands of the new applications for IoT and Wireless providers.
Accelerating Cloud-Native Edge Deployments with OpenNESS
As industries are shifting more compute to the edge to gain enhanced insights for their business, cloud-native edge deployments are key for rapid innovation and agility. Platforms built on cloud-native architectures enable businesses to rapidly introduce new services, provide operational agility, use resources efficiently, and improve the end-user experience. In this webinar, Rajesh Gadivar, VP, Data Platforms Group and CTO, Network Platforms Group at Intel Corporation will talk about the growing prominence of edge computing and how cloud-native offerings such as OpenNESS are providing a foundation for the 5G-Ready Edge. Partha Seetala, Chief Executive Officer, Robin.io, will talk about how Robin.io’s edge platform has integrated OpenNESS to not only achieve cloud native capabilities but also leverage the benefits of other Intel ingredients for a highly optimized edge platform.

End-to-End 4G and 5G RAN deployment automation
Mobile Network Operators (MNO) are faced with several challenges when modernizing and growing their networks, and need to make continuous investments in order to introduce new technologies, like 5G. Among these investments, the Radio Access Network (RAN) is usually the highest expense, given its scale: 10,000 to over 100,000 sites for medium to large networks. Emerging technologies like Open RAN promise a better Total Cost of Ownership for such investments, but embracing these new technologies pose a challenge to the MNO. They cannot afford to add more personnel to cope with the sheer network growth. Robin helps solve this dilemma by providing a RAN-as-a-Service capability through its automation and orchestration solution tailored to next-gen RAN deployments. Robin has successfully deployed this technology at Tier1 operators for their 4G and 5G RAN networks, resulting in dramatic reductions in CapEx and OpEx, extremely faster time-to-market and simplified operations.

Big Data-as-a-Service with Kubernetes - Solution Brief
Cloud native Financial Services Applications
Robin enables financial institutions to automate deployment, scaling and lifecycle management of enterprise applications on Kubernetes. Robin simplifies the containerization of critical application pipelines including fraud analytics, real-time risk detection, & deep learning which are composed of multiple stateless and stateful applications.
- Define & deploy applications stack or data pipeline as a bundle on Kubernetes on-prem or in the cloud »Enable self-service provisioning and management capabilities for the entire stack.
- Accelerate & enhance Dev/Test collaboration with application-aware cloning
- Monitor the health of infrastructure, containers, and the entire application stacks
- Dynamically scale-up/ scale-out in minutes, without interrupting application operations
- Consolidate multiple Databases like Oracle RAC clusters to reduce hardware and licensing cost
- Migrate your customized and legacy application stacks to cloud without refactoring
- Protect your critical application stack with application aware snapshots and backup
Digital Transformation Demands Fast-paced Innovation Digital Transformation requires IT services to be delivered in a fast, agile and streamlined manner across the entire organization. Enterprises in the Financial Services industry constantly need to innovate to attract and retain customers demanding a rich digital and mobile experience. It is also critical to analyze security threats across diverse systems and applications in real-time and at the same time meet all the compliance requirements as well as achieve continous availability for critical applications.
The industry is looking at containerization and kubernetes to achieve IT agility, however, there are many challenges that significantly impact the ability of technology leaders to innovate: Infrastructure silos – Owing to years of organic growth, the application infrastructure landscape is very diverse.
Managing legacy applications and modern cloud-native applications at the same time can be challenging. Traditional methods take weeks to provision legacy applications or to provide dev/test refreshes. With release cycles shrinking due to the DevOps culture and modern architecture, developers need much faster turnaround times for their application pipeline that often include legacy applications, as many modern applications depend on legacy applications.
High licensing and Infrastructure costs – Creating dedicated clusters for individual “tenants” (teams, workloads, applications, etc.) is required due to challenges with performance isolation. Each cluster is deployed for peak capacity, leading to significant licensing and hardware costs.
Infrastructure lock-in – Migrating customized applications to the cloud is not easy. Locked into infrastructure choice limits your ability to scale and experiment with new ideas.
