March 22, 2018, Shenzhen, China - ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, today unveiled an end-to-end container networking solution in the open-source NFV field, promoting the development of cloud native technology and the open source ecosystem.
With the boost of 5G process, the industry demand varies greatly. The ability to quickly adapt with low cost and keep continuous innovation is the way to development. As the best carrier for NFV transformation, container has become a stimuli to innovation and development. Container-based cloud native applications will become the trend of CT applications. However, the native kubernetes network model used in the IT industry is too simple to meet telco service requirements.
ZTE’s unified ICT PaaS platform, TECS OpenPalette, is based on the container and Kubernetes cluster management technologies. It not only provides the digital transformation of governments and enterprises with PaaS, but also serves the telco NFV field, enabling telcos to provide faster and better services, achieve continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD), and reduce the development cost.
To address telecom application requirements such as high concurrency, large throughput, and multiple network planes, ZTE TECS OpenPalette platform provides the Knitter container networking solution.
In addition to supporting the native Kubernetes network, it offers a complete set of end-to-end container networking solution in the NFV field, including multiple network planes, static application IP address, IP address migration, configurable IP resources, high-performance forwarding and more.
As the world’s leading contributor to open source communities, ZTE has been actively participating in and contributing to all the communities. In particular, the company maintains No.1 in the contributions to the Kubernetes and Docker communities.
With the open-source carrier-grade network solution Knitter, ZTE will further expand the ecological scope of container-related fields and has comprehensive cooperation with the industry in terms of models, standards, architecture, and markets, to accelerate the development of cloud native open-source communities and continuously inject new technological vitality into the construction of the ecosystem.
