Kaloom announced collaboration with Red Hat around the launch of the Red Hat virtual central office solution, a Virtual Central Office (VCO) solution for multivendor NFV deployments at the edge.

The solution is designed to speed and simplify the deployment of value-added residential, enterprise and mobile services by telcos and enterprises.

Kaloom provides a fully automated VCO networking solution together with Red Hat’s NFV infrastructure. The solution leverages Kaloom’s programmable fabric to help increase the performance and lower the latency for NFV applications. Utilizing some of the newest capabilities in open source software-defined networking (SDN), the Red Hat virtual central office solution is designed to extend functionality to support virtualized next-generation mobile services and helps to define a multivendor central office designed for both 4G and 5G.

The Kaloom solution enhances CPU utilization for virtual network function (VNF) applications by offloading sophisticated service chaining functionality and embedding it into the data plane to accelerate overall performance and lower latency. It also provides customers with a way to program their infrastructure using the open standards-based P4 programming language to quickly add new services and capabilities.

Through extended collaboration, Red Hat and Kaloom have helped to strengthen the automation of NFV infrastructure to fuel disruption around how cloud and data center networks are built, managed and maintained for operators, wireless providers, enterprises, cloud providers, and gaming companies. The days of CLI-based configuration are finally over as Kaloom brings true automation to the data center. 

Kaloom’s collaboration with Red Hat, the world's leading provider of open source software solutions, delivers VCO solutions for the enterprise and telco markets. The collaboration optimizes Kaloom’s SDF with Red Hat offerings, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red HatEnterprise LinuxAtomic Host, Red HatOpenStack Platform and Red HatOpenShift, and helps to extend both companies’ technological leadership across the data center and IT landscape.

Laurent Marchand, CEO and founder, Kaloom
We see a strong need among current beta and other potential customers to have an open multivendor NFV solution. Our advanced service chaining capabilities significantly increase performance and lower latency delivering better overall network performance and lower costs for data center operators.

Darrel Smith, VP, Global Information and Communications Technology, Red Hat
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.
