Tech Mahindra and VMware Inc. announced a new collaboration to jointly develop, market, and deliver solutions to accelerate network transformation for Communication Service Providers (CSPs).

Through this expanded relationship, the companies will combine VMware’s production-proven, 5G and OpenStack ready network functions virtualization (NFV) platform with Tech Mahindra’s Network Services to help global CSPs accelerate new service delivery, open new market opportunities and improve IT and business economics.

CSPs need to deliver new and differentiated services faster in an on-demand model, which means turning on services when and where subscribers want them, keeping capital spend to a minimum. Doing so will enable Telcos to rethink new business models and services. Through unique solutions based on a software-defined and distributed micro datacenter architecture, Tech Mahindra and VMware will help CSPs accelerate time to market, monetize new innovative services, streamline operations and reduce network infrastructure costs in the core, at the edge, and on the customer premise.

With 4G and LTE in full swing and with the imminent arrival of 5G, Tech Mahindra’s telco transformation expertise coupled with VMware’s innovative NFV solutions portfolio can help CSPs with their digital transformation. Tech Mahindra and VMware will be bringing to market offerings that enable CSPs to offer customers Virtual Customer Premise Equipment (vCPE) solutions and reference architectures aligned to solution stacks.

Tech Mahindra will work with VMware to enable IoT solutions on the VMware vCloud NFV platform, enabling Communications Service Providers to extend secure, scalable and highly available IoT services to Health service providers, manufacturing companies among others.

As part of the partnership, Tech Mahindra has on boarded VMware vCloud NFV into Tech Mahindra’s Virtual Network Function (VNF) Xchange program. VNF-Xchange is a vendor-neutral platform designed to accelerate the communications industry’s adoption of NFV and software-defined networks (SDN), providing a platform to integrate VNFs, the components of the NFV reference architecture, and the end-to-end solutions, use cases and network services that they enable.
