Wind River in digital twin move
Embedded software tool developer Wind River has developed a cloud-native platform intelligent systems such as a digital twin of a physical system where security, safety, and reliability are required.
The first release of Wind River Studio enables the flexible and efficient deployment, management, and operations of intelligent 5G distributed edge clouds. Studio GA capabilities include a far edge cloud infrastructure for 5G, zero-touch deployment, analytics, and container orchestration; public preview capabilities include a DevSecOps toolchain, digital twin, digital feedback loop, device security, and OTA.
A demonstrator of the platform provides a ‘DevSecOps’ environment to build, test, and simulate devices and intelligent systems such as a digital twin of a system.
Verizon is using Studio GA for its 5G vRAN deployment, which played a key role in the world’s first end-to-end fully virtualized 5G data session.
“In order to thrive in a digital- and AI-first world, companies are accelerating their digital transformation plans from years to months. Wind River is committed to realizing the digital future of our customers across the industries we serve,” said Kevin Dallas, Wind River president and CEO. “Wind River Studio is the first and only of its kind to deliver one environment for mission-critical intelligent systems across the full product lifecycle. This new platform offers dramatic improvements in productivity, agility, and time-to-market, with seamless technology integration that includes far edge cloud compute, data analytics, system level security, 5G, and AI/ML.”
Gartner expects that, by 2022, more than 50% of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed outside the traditional data centre or cloud at the edge of the network. This will need a combination of an intelligent cloud and intelligent edge model, where the majority of low latency compute takes place in the mission-critical intelligent system used in aerospace, defense, telecom, industrial, automotive, and medical systems.
These systems will have to have the ability to securely capture and process real-time machine data with digital feedback loops that enable advanced automated and autonomous scenarios in such systems as robotics, drones, autonomous vehicles, and augmented reality.
Behind the scenes, Wind River has been a key technology provider for early 5G systems with its Helix software, powering the majority of 5G RAN deployments. This has led to a fully cloud-native, Kubernetes- and container-based architecture for the deployment and management of distributed edge networks at scale. Network analytics technology that includes an integrated data collection, monitoring, and reporting tool to optimize the management and operation of a distributed cloud network. Core-to-edge orchestration for the efficient management and automation of distributed cloud networks and application services, including the management of containers, network elements, and edge devices.
