AT&T : Calsoft Announces Commercial Support for Akraino-led ICN (Integrated Cloud Native) Blueprint

07/31/2021 | 03:01am EDT

With a long history of contributing to the Opensource technology space, the company buckles up to extend full support for Akriano’s ICN blueprint. Akraino is a Linux Foundation project initiated by AT&T and Intel.

San Jose, CAJuly 31, 2021 --(PR.com)-- Calsoft Inc., a global leader in delivering product engineering and digital services to Telecom Service Providers, ISVs and enterprises, in this week announced that it will extend full commercial support to its valued customers for POCs, Product Development, day#n support & monitoring services and community contribution, for Akraino’s ICN (Integrated Cloud Native) blueprint.

Akraino, a Linux Foundation project initiated by AT&T and Intel, has been developing a fully integrated edge infrastructure solutions, and the project is completely focused on Edge Computing for both Enterprises and Telcos. Akraino has several blueprints based on the use cases, tech stack, capabilities, and solutions.

ICN is one of the most important blueprints from the Akraino project. ICN (Integrated Cloud Native) is a Multi-Server Integrated Cloud native NFV/App stack. It is intended to serve use cases like SD-WAN/SASE, Enterprise edge, Private-5G, Publi-MEC that require various types of workloads including VNFs, CNFs & micro-services based applications.

ICN is based on a combination of open-source technologies (K8S, Istio, Ceph, etc.), LFN/LFE/CNCF projects such as EMCO, Nodus (OVN4NFV), Distributed Telemetry and CAPI/Metal3/Ironic, NFD, ISTIO/Envoy, SRIOV-CNI and many more. While ICN provides the validated End-to-End implementation, it is tricky for Service Providers & Telcos to take open source and productize it to fit within their network while meeting other integration requirements.

Calsoft has been a leading engineering service provider with long history of open-source contributions and developing solutions based on them. Calsoft has made several contributions to Linux, OpenStack, Akraino, etc. and has successfully delivered products to its customers.

- Helping customers in their POCs with ICN such as setting it up, running demo apps and proving its usability

- Providing bug fixes while working closely with community, Intel and other partners

- Helping production deployments

- Providing Day#n support & monitoring services

“We, as a company, are fully dedicated to our customers and partners. By extending our support to Akriano’s ICN blueprint, we will be able to offer our customers the technology solutions they need. This move will not only strengthen our relationships with customers but also bring Calsoft to the center-stage of innovation in the fields of open-source and networking tech,” said Anupam Bhide, CEO and Founder of Calsoft.
