Wind River has unveiled its cloud-native platform for the development, deployment, operations, and servicing of mission-critical intelligent systems, Wind River Studio.

This first release of the platform is set to enable the deployment and operations of 5G distributed edge clouds through one single pane of glass.

“In order to thrive in a digital- and AI-first world, companies are accelerating their digital transformation plans from years to months,” said Kevin Dallas, Wind River president and CEO.

“Wind River is committed to realising the digital future of our customers across the industries we serve.

“Wind River Studio is the first and only of its kind to deliver one environment for mission-critical intelligent systems across the full product lifecycle.

“This new platform offers dramatic improvements in productivity, agility, and time-to-market, with seamless technology integration that includes far edge cloud compute, data analytics, system-level security, 5G, and AI/ML.”

Gartner predicts that by 2022, more than 50% of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed outside the traditional data centre or cloud.

Mission-critical intelligent systems will form the foundation of the digital transformation across industries, including aerospace, defense, telecom, industrial, automotive, and medical.

Studio cloud-native infrastructure software and analytics capabilities address service providers’ needs surrounding deployment and management of a physically distributed ultra-low latency, cloud-native infrastructure.

The technologies are deployed in Verizon’s 5G network and enabled an end-to-end fully virtualised 5G data session.

“Verizon has been on the leading edge of virtualizing the network, which provides the foundation for programmability in our network and allows us to speed new services to customers,” said Srini Kalapala, vice president of Technology Planning and Development for Verizon.

“Virtualising the entire network from the core to the edge has been a massive, multiyear redesign effort of our network architecture that simplifies and modernizes our entire network.”
