World Wide Technology Teams Up with Red Hat to Accelerate Service Provider Time to Revenue

The partnership allows WWT to deploy Red Hat’s Virtual Central Office solution at scale, fully integrated and ready for installation through its global Integration Centers

World Wide Technology (WWT), a market-leading technology solution provider, is collaborating with Red Hat’s extensive partner ecosystem to validate and customize the Red Hat Virtual Central Office (VCO) solution in WWT’s†Advanced Technology Center (ATC).

Once validated, WWT can deploy the VCO solution at scale through its global Integration Centers to help customers make the most of customized open solutions by enabling innovative services and enhancing the customer experience.

Joe Wojtal, vice president of open systems and solutions for WWT, said, “Service provider customers are looking to deliver new, innovative services to their customers. By delivering these services via software, they can quickly change or add features based on customer demand and improve their time to market.”

As interest grows around edge-based services, VCO will experience increasing demand for software-based services and operational simplicity. Red Hat’s advanced capabilities are foundational in WWT’s ability to deliver full-stack network function virtualization (NFV) solutions four times faster than traditional validation.

The ecosystem partners actively working in WWT’s ATC include Affirmed Networks, Altiostar, Amdocs, Cumulus Networks, Edgecore Networks, F5 Networks, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, MYCOM OSI and Trilio.

“As more mobile network operators look to embrace the role of a modern open telecommunications service provider, moving services from the core network closer to customers by virtualizing edge networks becomes an important consideration,” said Darrell Jordan-Smith, vice president of global information and communications technology for Red Hat. “Red Hat Virtual Central Office solution is designed to provide both a path for service providers to follow and an open pluggable framework upon which to build their next generation services.”

Karl Renneker, global head of alliances at Trilio, called Virtual Central Office a “dependable, virtualized environment that provides resources, flexibility, and simplicity for ‘last mile’ operations at the network edge.”

JR Rivers, founder and CTO of Cumulus Networks, said the solution is “perfectly suited for service providers building infrastructure with a purpose.”

“As service providers adopt open network and software-controlled infrastructures, WWT provides the critical solution validation and services that integrate the entire software stack with open network hardware for central office and mobile network deployments,” said Jeff Catlin, vice president of technology for Edgecore Networks.

Red Hat delivers reliable and high-performing Linux, hybrid cloud, container and Kubernetes technologies that help customers integrate new and existing IT applications, develop cloud-native applications, standardize its industry-leading operating system, and automate, secure and manage complex environments.
