Built on the backbone of a enterprise Linux platform, Red Hat OpenStack Platform enables enterprises to transform their IT infrastruncture into a more agile, efficient and innovative environment. Modular by design, it helps to optimise IT operations for existing traditional applications while serving as the foundation for cloud-native application development and deployment.
Kaloom’s platform 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 platform together with Red Hat’s NFV infrastructure.
Kaloom’s fully automated VCO networking platform leverages its programmable fabric to help increase the performance and lower the latency for NFV applications. Using some of the newest functionalities in open source software-defined networking (SDN), the Red Hat virtual central office platform is designed to extend functionality to support virtualised next-generation mobile services and helps to define a multi-vendor central office designed for both 4G/LTE and 5G.
