VMware Telco Cloud Platform RAN Extends the Benefits of Network Disaggregation and Virtualization from the Core to the RAN

Communication service providers (CSPs) are modernizing their networks as quickly as they can to bring new 5G services to customers. First with the core-the heart of the network. And now further out to the edge. They want to bring the benefits of the cloud to the parts of the network that connect mobile phones and other wireless devices back to the core. That's why VMware (NYSE: VMW) is today announcing VMware Telco Cloud Platform RAN. It is a platform that enables CSPs to virtualize radio access network (RAN) functions and implement an open RAN architecture.

VMware Tanzu to empower soldiers to use modern cloud technologies and DevSecOps practices; solve problems through agile and more secure software development processes

VMware announced that it has been selected by U.S. Army Futures Command to enable a software factory for soldiers, by soldiers. Together, Army Futures Command and VMware will cultivate the first Soldier-led 'Silicon Valley software company' inside the Army. The new initiative will equip soldiers to take up cloud native development practices and help produce software to address current and future mission priorities.

Through the Army Software Factory, the U.S. Army will tap into the deep pool of talent across its workforce and upskill tech-minded soldiers and civilians. Cohorts of Army soldiers and Government civilians will go through a comprehensive program that will begin in the classroom and span critical disciplines including software engineering, design and product management, and platform operations. Soldiers will be paired with a VMware Tanzu Labs expert in their fields for deep on-the-job enablement to learn to build, develop, field and operate software in the same way as the best Silicon Valley companies. For each of the next five years, 30 hand-selected soldiers and civilians from the Army will enter the program every six months.
