Titanium Cloud

The Carrier Grade NFV Ecosystem

Market-Ready NFV Solutions—Optimized and Interoperable?

Introducing Wind River® Titanium Cloud, the ecosystem of products around Wind River Titanium Server for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).

Through the Titanium Cloud ecosystem, Wind River collaborates with industry-leading hardware and software companies to ensure the availability of interoperable standard products optimized for deployment with Titanium Server.

You can select these products for your NFV deployment with the confidence that they have been pre-integrated and validated with Titanium Server. They are available now for deployment in live networks, providing you with a proven end-to-end solution that spans multiple layers within the overall NFV architecture. Utilizing the Titanium Cloud ecosystem accelerates your time-to-market and reduces your schedule as you deploy end-to-end infrastructure.

Wind River partners in the Titanium Cloud ecosystem fall into four categories:

  • Providers of operations support systems and business support systems (OSS/BSS)
  • Suppliers of NFV orchestration solutions
  • Companies who deliver virtual network functions (VNFs)
  • Providers of standard server platforms
