Wiwwyn Products are Tested and Verified for Aether Edge Site Deployments

In this latest Aether blog post “Aether – Rapidly Deploying New Edge Sites Around the World”, Wiwynn is mentioned tested and verified for Aether edge site deployments.

Deep dive to learn how Aether acts as a catalyst for accelerating smart enterprise digital transformation with open source, software-defined cellular connectivity and tightly integrated cloud-native edge compute on COTS hardware:

 
 
 
 
 
 

Some of the major Aether architectural components include:

Aether Connected Edge (ACE) – A Kubernetes-based micro datacenter operating on-premise that hosts the Aether Connectivity Service and optionally one or more third-party edge platforms or applications selected by the enterprise. Each ACE site includes compute, network fabric and small cells to provide connectivity to end-user devices.

Aether Connectivity Service (ACS) – An on-premise edge hosted 5G/LTE connectivity service that includes support for local break-out. It consists of the virtualized central units (CU) of the small cells and O-RAN compliant near real-time RAN Intelligent Controller (nRT-RIC) based on ONF’s SD-RAN and ONF’s P4-based User Plane Function (UPF). Each ACS is controlled by an ACC running in the central cloud.

Aether Connectivity Control (ACC) – An open source 3GPP-compliant 4G/5G Mobile Core control plane. ACC runs in the central cloud where the corresponding UPF runs on-premise as part of each ACE. ACC can be deployed in ‘slices’ for different enterprises and different network applications within any given enterprise.

Aether Management Platform (AMP) – A high availability cloud service used to control, configure, monitor and lifecycle-manage both multiple ACE clusters at edge locations and multiple control planes running as part of ACC. It defines Aether workflows for adding and controlling subscribers, small cells, mobile core user plane and 3rd party edge services.

Inside ACE

ONF has created an ACE component checklist that identifies hardware required for deploying any new ACE site. A growing list of vendor components is available.  These are components that have been tested and verified by ONF for compatibility and are continually reverified on an ongoing basis as part of the rigorous CI/CD process. ACE sites require one of each of the following types of equipment, but Aether supports the flexibility to mix and match vendor products from each of these categories:

  • Compute Servers – Dell, HPE, SuperMicro, Wiwynn
  • Fabric Switches – APS Networks, EdgeCore
  • Small Cell – Accelleran, Baicells, OAI, Sercomm
