One of the newest specifications that has been named OCP-ACCEPTED™ is the CG-OpenRack-19 specification. CG-OpenRack-19 is a scalable carrier-grade rack level system that integrates high performance compute, storage and networking in a standard rack. In this workshop, communications service providers and vendors that created the specification and are dedicated to bringing OCP Open Rack principles to the telco data center will address: • The telecom industry’s transformation from the traditional Central Office to virtualized data centers and how this transition is driving demand for open hardware solutions. • Why adapting the OCP base model to the telecom environment must take into account new requirements to accommodate existing Central Offices. • The specific requirements for carrier-grade OCP, including Physical, Content/Workload, Management, and Networking/Interconnect. • How the CG-OpenRack-19 specification aligns with the principles of OCP. Panelists will discuss in-depth how the spec meets requirements for efficient design, scale-out ready architecture, open source and creating a meaningful positive impact. • A real-world example of a CG-OpenRack-19 based hardware solution being deployed in a live network.
