UBiqube | March 06, 2023
UBiqube showed off its integrated MSActivator and Cloudclapp solution at Mobile World Congress. This solution is meant to help telecom operators help their enterprise customers extend their CI/CD pipelines by using edge deployment instead of the cloud. With a solution from UBiqube that combines MSActivator and Cloudclapp, telecom operators can easily extend the CI/CD pipelines of their enterprise customers. Edge deployment is an option for the solution, which makes it a great choice for operators who want to improve their cloud capabilities.
The solution makes it possible for telecom operators to set up and manage service provider solutions as part of the enterprise DevOps fabric. This closes the gap between building an edge cloud and putting applications on it. The solution from UBiqube makes it easier to deploy applications over an edge cloud by letting service provider solution setup and enterprise DevOps work well together. This can help telecom operators give their enterprise customers better cloud options, which in turn can help those customers improve their CI/CD pipelines.
Nabil Souli, founder and CEO of UBiqube, said, "Both hyperscale cloud providers and telcos are developing cloud solutions at the edge." "However, large enterprises are considering edge deployments in the context of their hybrid and multicloud strategies." He also said, "One criteria for hosting an application at the edge could be latency, but the consensus is that this should not come at the expense of vendor and provider neutrality — which is a fundamental driver for transitioning to hybrid clouds." He added, "It is therefore paramount that telcos offer their customers an edge solution that is easy to blend with other cloud alternatives to ensure fast adoption."

MSActivator is an infrastructure-as-code framework that telcos use to automate an edge solution. Cloudclapp by UBiqube, on the other hand, is a layer for hybrid clouds that makes it easy to deploy cloud applications visually. The integrated solution gives developers a simple way to manage different infrastructure environments, making it easy to connect to other cloud options.
MSActivator is UBiqube's open automation and orchestration software. For network service providers and large enterprises, the platform automates and reduces network operations. It is in charge of managing physical, virtual, and multi-vendor network infrastructure. Service orchestration, inventory management, network automation, and security automation are all part of UBiqube's MSActivator platform. With a unified view of the network infrastructure, it is possible to deliver and manage services from beginning to end. UBiqube, headquartered in Dublin, has offices in Paris, France, and Sunnyvale, California. Customers include network service providers, managed service providers, and multi-industry large enterprises. UBiqube works with Cisco, Juniper Networks, and Palo Alto Networks to automate and orchestrate networks in an integrated way. In addition, the company is a running member of the Open Networking Foundation and the Open Platform for NFV Project.
