Cloud Native Platform Robin.io is participating at the world’s most prominent event, Mobile World Congress (MWC) – Barcelona, 2022. At MWC, Robin.io and industry-leading partners will show customers practical use cases and a future-ready stack based on 5G and Edge capabilities.
Over the next few years, Communication Service Providers (CSPs) and Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) are facing major 5G investment decisions. Robin cloud-native, adaptable Kubernetes platform gives you more flexibility and agility to bring new connection and service alternatives to market. With unparalleled lifecycle simplicity, performance, scale, and smart workload placement, Robin.io is currently assisting operators in delivering the 5G/MEC service promise.
Partha Seetela, CEO Robin.io commented, “Operators and Enterprises alike are embarking on a path to modernization and containerization of the 5G services including Open Radio Access Networks (O-RAN), Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) and Packet Core. Robin.io will accelerate these transformations and modernizations. We are excited to collaborate with our ecosystem of partner companies to automate service delivery of integrated Network services and solutions. We are showcasing these solutions with our partners at MWC 2022.”
MNOs are focusing on cost-effective performance as they create their 5G network infrastructure. Robin.io is able to quickly deploy their platform and support 5G vRAN by leveraging Intel Smart Edge, a cloud native software platform that includes advanced Kubernetes networking for Telco deployment, 5G acceleration in FPGA or eASIC form factor, real-time optimizations, support for ORAN RIC use cases, advanced observability, and orchestration support.
As a Titanium level partner in the Intel Network Builders Winners’ Circle, Robin.io has integrated Intel Smart Edge Open technology into our platform, and currently running Cloud-Native Open RAN and Edge in production. At MWC, Robin.io will demonstrate 5G, ORAN, and Edge use cases and demos, all of which will be powered by 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs.

Rajiv Papneja, Head of Cloud & Network Services at Prodapt said, “The alliance with Robin.io enables us to provide CSPs with a differentiated cloud-native services portfolio. Multi-cloud orchestration, metal to service orchestration and management, and network function orchestration and management with a faster go-to-market approach are key to success.”
QCT, Lekha Wireless, Blue Arcus, Kloudspot, and 6wind are just a few of the industry-leading technology businesses with which Robin.io has worked that drive innovation across the enterprise and Telco markets. The cooperation seeks to create a seamless automated cloud-native platform that boosts the time-to-market of various 5G services and apps by decreasing infrastructure and operating expenses and minimising deployment time.
Mike Yang, President of QCT said, “By partnering with Robin.io, we are modernizing 5G solutions and giving our mutual customers improved performance. This partnership significantly reduces the development time for Systems Integrators, CSPs and other strategic alliances by enabling a smooth path to integration and orchestration, which eases the cost and operational effort needed for productization.”
Ramu Srinivasaiah, CoFounder & Director of Lekha Wireless commented, “This collaboration enables us to deliver a turnkey solution to the private enterprise market. As we embark on this journey to integrate the network elements with Robin.io along with Blue Arcus, I see it is a unique partnership that can deliver a much-needed disaggregated 5G network to the market.”
Blue Arcus provides a cloud-native 5G core that enables mobile network operators and system integrators to develop IoT, Private/Enterprise Networks, and MEC networks by delivering a stable, scalable, and distributed autonomous network solution.
Naren Yanamadala, CEO & Founder of Blue Arcus commented, “We are excited about our partnership with Robin.io as this is an important milestone achieved as part of the collaboration initiated to address the 5G enterprise use cases.”
Mehran Hadipour, Vice President of Business Development and Tech Alliances said, “Intelligent infrastructure and automation technologies is key consideration as the industry prepare to deploy 5G and Edge services along with Open Radio Access Networks (O-RAN), Robin.io working with our partners will enable the industry and operators to deliver a significant number of new services with increased speed and lower latency and reduced cost with strict Quality of Service (QoS). Robin.io, along with partners, will bring cloud agility to deploy 4G and 5G RAN (DU, CU, Radio Controller), AMF, UPF, etc., on COTS hardware. Our joint solution brings centralized orchestration and automates deployment in minutes while allowing scaling to a million nodes and automating lifecycle management tasks.”
Ravi Akireddy – Founder & CEO, Kloudspot said, “Kloudspot is a cloud-agnostic Location and Situational Awareness and Location Analytics platform that rides on the Network edge infrastructure. Using AI and ML, Kloudspot will provide experiential insights and report into a lifestyle, workspace, health and safety, asset and infrastructure utilization for customers.”
Julien Dahan, CEO, 6WIND stated, “Our collaboration with Robin.io gives CSPs and Cloud Providers the option to deploy our Cloud-Native Virtual Service Router (VSR) solutions on Robin’s platform. 6WIND provides cloud-native VSR network solutions that deliver the performance and scalability needed by CSPs to fully unleash their agility and flexibility in defining innovative edge and core services, fully automated and dynamically adapted to evolving requirements. We are excited to partner with Robin.io, as we are able to jointly address CSPs and deliver best-of-breed solutions, including among others, a virtual security Gateway (vSecGW), a virtual Provider Edge Router (vPE), a virtual CG-NAT router (vCG-NAT), a virtual Cell Site Router (vCSR), that accelerate the 5G and Edge deployments”.
With major economic and operational benefits for operators, Robin.io embraces Cloud-Native technology standard deployments for 5G.
