Robin.io Adopts Open Network Edge Services Software to Advance 5G Networks

By Ken Briodagh

Robin.io, an application automation platform company, recently announced that it has integrated Intel’s Open Network Edge Services Software (OpenNESS) into its platform for deployment and orchestration of 5G and edge services in a containerized environment.

OpenNESS is an open-source software initiative from Intel designed to help accelerate the creation of new applications and services for 5G and edge. OpenNESS is supposed to make it easier for cloud and internet of things (IOT) developers to develop applications while taking advantage of the underlying networking capabilities offered by Intel platforms and solutions.

“The Robin platform delivers automation and lifecycle management of 5G service delivery including RAN. OpenNESS technology, coupled with the Robin.io cloud-native orchestration and automation platform, makes containerization of the CNF/VNF/RAN possible for the first time, reducing infrastructure and operations costs dramatically for 5G service providers,” said Partha Seetala, CTO, Robin.io.

“Leading service providers are accelerating deployment of cloud native technologies for network functions and edge services. We are collaborating with the Intel Network Builders ecosystem, including Robin.io, to accelerate a path to commercialization by integrating and deploying OpenNESS microservices at the edge,” said Renu Navale, VP & GM, Edge Computing and Ecosystem Enabling, Intel.

Robin.io automates the deployment and life cycle management of complex data and network-intensive application pipelines as a service, including the demanding requirements of 5G service delivery. The Robin application automation platform reportedly enables companies to deliver an end-to-end, cloud-native, 5G service delivery network. In addition to the collaboration around OpenNESS, Robin.io has also joined the Intel Network Builders program, a vast and mature ecosystem of global partners that are accelerating the transformation of network infrastructure towards 5G deployments.
