5 Dec 2019

US-based ROBIN, which has developed a software platform for automating deployment, scaling and life cycle management of enterprise and telco applications, says its Robin.io platform has been selected by Japan’s new fourth operator Rakuten Mobile to enable its 4G end-to-end cloud-native network. In a press release, Silicon Valley-headquartered ROBIN said the Japanese firm selected its platform to help improve the end-user experience, and reduce infrastructure and operational costs of telco and service delivery applications. The vendor claims the platform will enable Rakuten to create a cloud-native deployment model that is optimised with Robin’s innovative application-aware storage and carrier-grade networking.

‘We are thrilled to leverage Robin’s application automation capabilities that advance Rakuten’s plan to deploy an end-to-end cloud-native wireless service,’ said Tareq Amin, Rakuten Mobile’s Chief Technology Officer.
