Altran today announced it has committed to join IBM’s (NYSE: IBM) ecosystem of partners supporting the new IBM Cloud for Telecommunications. The IBM Cloud for Telecommunications is an open, hybrid cloud architecture designed to accelerate business transformation with the power of edge and 5G and address the unique requirements of operators, partner ecosystems and their enterprise clients. Built on IBM Cloud Satellite, currently in beta, and leveraging Red Hat OpenShift, clients can deploy cloud services anywhere: on the cloud, on premises or at the edge, while addressing industry-specific regulatory and security requirements.
We at Altran are delighted to be among the initial partners. We are excited to expand our relationship with IBM by bringing together IBM Cloud for Telecommunications and our own 5G solutions across vRAN, Core, Transport and Edge, as well as our deep 5G system integration and network engineering expertise. Our collaboration can create a compelling value proposition in the telco cloud network infrastructure and services market. Capgemini and Altran’s new set of Intelligent Industry offerings focused on 5G and Edge positions us to jointly engage with telco operators and enterprises, and enable their data-driven business transformation.
Altran’s 5G solutions can help companies unlock the benefits of IBM’s open and unified hybrid cloud architecture, delivering security, AI-driven automation and end-to-end service orchestration.
“We are excited to collaborate with Altran as part of the IBM Cloud for Telecommunications Ecosystem, to offer telecom operators access to the best technology that can help them scale and innovate.” said Evaristus Mainsah, General Manager, Cloud, Cloud Pak and Edge Ecosystem, IBM. “The power of IBM’s Ecosystem provides clients a wide range of ways to leverage the platform, positioning them to deliver next generation 5G and Edge services; deploy and manage new cloud capabilities; and enrich relationships through AI-driven engagement.”
The IBM Cloud for Telecommunications is engineered to integrate advanced AI and automation processes at the edge and speeds services deployment while simultaneously reducing overall costs. With an open, container-based architecture managed as a service, operators and their providers will be able to easily integrate, automate and orchestrate how they run network and IT workloads across any environment. The platform leverages IBM’s industry-leading encryption capabilities like Keep Your Own Key (KYOK), giving clients full control of their data.
Altran has committed to join the IBM Cloud for Telecommunications Ecosystem, an initiative to help network equipment providers, independent software vendors (ISVs), software-as-a-service providers, and hardware partners accelerate business transformation by unlocking the power of 5G and edge. The IBM Cloud for Telecommunications is an open, hybrid cloud architecture built on IBM Cloud Satellite, currently in beta, and leverages Red Hat OpenShift to enable clients to deploy IBM Cloud services anywhere: on the cloud, on premises or at the edge, while addressing industry-specific regulatory and security requirements. Red Hat OpenShift is the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform.
We look forward to seeing how this important industry initiative advances!
