This demo features a multi-vendor solution for Open Source MANO (OSM)-enabled management, orchestration, and testing of network services setup, validation, and operation in a DevOps environment, both at design and run time. RIFT.io is working with Arctos Labs, Intel, Netrounds, and Telenor.

At the VMware Booth: B-13, 14 & RIFT.io Booth D-10 (These are demos RIFT.io collaborated with VMware to build).

vRAN/Multi-Edge Computing

This demo showcases a way to deploy a virtual Radio Access Network (vRAN) through a security gateway to enable cloud-computing capabilities and a flexible service environment at the data center-edge. This solution allows carriers to rapidly innovate and deliver new services for mobile subscribers, enterprise customers, and other users. The solution demo also involves Fortinet and Ixia.

Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN)

This demo features how customers can deploy new software-based, virtual routers, WAN accelerators/optimizers, security functions, Wi-Fi and mobility functions from leading vendors that have integrated their virtual network applications on RIFT.ware.
