Broadcom’s VMware Highlights Solutions for Telecoms at MWC 2024

VMware, acquired by Broadcom, has highlighted its latest solutions for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024.
VMware at MWC 2024“We’ve enabled our customers to modernize their networks from the core to the RAN with VMware Telco Cloud Platform,” said Sanjay Uppal, vice president and general manager, Software-Defined Edge Division, Broadcom, in a news statement.


VMware and Singtel are partnering to enable customers to manage their connectivity and cloud infrastructure based on VMware Edge Compute Stack through Singtel Paragon, a multi-network and multi-cloud orchestration platform for 5G and edge cloud. Enterprises will be able to tap onto Singtel 5G without having to redesign their applications with SDE’s software-defined edge solutions.

Bill Chang, CEO of Singtel’s Digital InfraCo, said, “Singtel’s priority is to make the benefits of 5G and MEC accessible to all enterprises, through innovations such as our patented Paragon platform.”

DISH Wireless

DISH Wireless has deployed VMware Telco Cloud Service Assurance across the Boost Wireless Network in a pilot production environment. DISH Wireless runs its network traffic on a multi-vendor platform and launched more than 20,000 5G sites. VMware Telco Cloud Service Assurance plays an instrumental role enabling DISH Wireless to improve network operations and efficiency.

Eben Albertyn, EVP and Chief Technology Officer, DISH Wireless, said: “VMware Telco Cloud Service Assurance provides visibility and actionable insights to help manage and operate our network effectively.”


Vodafone, together with VMware, announced a proof of concept (PoC) to be demonstrated at MWC applying network programmability and intelligence into the RAN to address network challenges caused by short-form video content.

Vodafone is implementing solutions to enhance network performance for its customers by developing Network Application Programming Interfaces (API’s), and using VMware RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC).

“Vodafone continues to innovate and lead in RAN technology as shown by its development of Network APIs to address the capacity demands of data intensive services like short-form video,” said Padma Sudarsan, chief of architecture, Telco, Software-Defined Edge Division, Broadcom.

“Vodafone and VMware have worked together on the integration of network intelligence and programmability to provide real-time control over our network APIs with the aim of improving the customer experience for all customers,” said Santiago Tenorio, Vodafone’s Director of Network Architecture.

Co-Innovation with Partners

VMware and Intel highlighted 14 standout monetization and optimization use cases that are helping to pioneer agile operations and new business models across the software-defined edge.

VIAVI Solutions announced capabilities of a joint Testbed as a Service (TBaaS) with VMware, combining the VIAVI TeraVM RIC Test with the VMware RIC to create a Digital Twin for the evaluation and performance benchmarking of applications.

VIAVI also provides geolocation intelligence and xApps/rApps, with real RAN data over the VMware RIC platform. This allows a CSP to capture information once and emulate it with multiple other applications, reducing the overhead of repeatedly capturing, processing and transmitting data.

Aira Technologies with VMware, announced a new capability, RANGPT, that enables observability, analysis, control, and automation of the RAN using conversational language. These capabilities make RANGPT a tool to Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) seeking insights on how to improve the performance of the RAN while optimizing network operations. RANGPT is hosted in the cloud and communicates with the VMware SMO framework.

VMware announced new developments across its 5G, SD-WAN, SASE and Edge Compute, collectively the Software-Defined Edge portfolio, to enable Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to modernize their networks and create new monetizable services.

VMware and Symantec, part of Broadcom, unveiled VMware VeloCloud SASE, secured by Symantec — a single-vendor SASE solution. The solution extends benefits to Broadcom’s installed base VeloCloud and Symantec customers. VMware VeloCloud SASE, secured by Symantec, is available.​
