Media Alert: A10 Networks to Participate in Collaborative 5G Cloud-Native Network Live Demonstration at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2019

As part of its presence at this year's KubeCon + CloudNativeCon, A10 Networks (NYSE: ATEN) has announced its participation in the Linux Foundation's end-to-end 5G cloud-native network proof of concept (POC). This represents the first public demonstration of A10's carrier-class 5G container firewall, which is capable of delivering up to 180 Gbps throughput, one of the fastest in the industry. The company's products are operating in a live ecosystem environment delivering proven interoperability across the user plane, control plane and networking plane of this 5G SA and NSA distributed cloud network.

The POC is a fully containerized, end-to-end 5G stand-alone (SA) and non-stand-alone (NSA) distributed cloud network. The infrastructure is a Red Hat OpenShift Kubernetes environment, implemented on Lenovo commercial off the shelf (COTS) servers. A10's container-based firewall and carrier-grade network address translation (CGNAT) technologies are featured as part of the 5G cloud-native network proof of concept.

A10 is focused on 5G security solutions with multiple proven tier-one 5G deployments that have required continued hyperscale, lower latency, agility, and advanced security. As 5G adoption increasingly requires multi-terabit performance on the Gi-LAN, the company continues to provide industry-leading scale in both virtual network functions (VNFs) and physical network functions (PNFs), including scale-out agile deployments with containerized solutions for virtual mobile edge compute requirements.

"This initiative remains one of the most compelling use cases for mobile operators looking to transform networks and lay the foundation for 5G. The upcoming demonstration of the end-to-end 5G cloud-native network at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon represents an important advancement in bringing this fully containerized 5G network to reality. A10 Networks is providing key firewall and CGNAT functionality, high performance and proven interoperability to this proof of concept," said Heather Kirksey, vice president, Community and Ecosystem Development at the Linux Foundation.

"Much as in traditional enterprise datacenters, service providers are ramping up their use of cloud-native technologies like Kubernetes to build next-generation workloads. Red Hat is pleased to collaborate with partners like A10 Networks and the Linux Foundation to showcase a cloud-native mobile network built on an open source infrastructure this year at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America," said Tom Nadeau, technical director, NFV, Red Hat.

This live demo, which is being led by the Linux Foundation, Red Hat and China Mobile is taking place during the keynote on Wednesday, November 20 at 10:00 a.m. PT.
