AWS Joins Board of prpl Foundation to Standardize Orchestration of CPE Software with the Cloud

Framingham, Massachusetts, 05 January 2021: prpl Foundation today announced that Amazon Web Services (AWS) has joined its board. The announcement aims to help standardize cloud-based application orchestration to manage the life cycles of containerized software components for next-generation customer-premises equipment (CPE) software stacks. This will enable service providers to more easily scale operations through the containerization of apps and services, moving away from monolithic firmware updates to a modularized approach that allows for simplified CPE application deployments and updates.

AWS has joined the Board of prpl Foundation to collaborate with prpl members and partners in the telecommunications ecosystem to standardize and build-out a platform-independent service delivery framework with technologies such as AWS IoT Greengrass, a service deployed to CPE devices that orchestrates software components and application life cycles from the cloud. Bringing the power of AWS and its suite of container management and data processing services, AWS IoT Core and AWS IoT Greengrass will be used to implement the standardized framework for cloud-to-CPE device orchestration.

“Service providers are increasingly turning to carrier-grade open-source software components to manage the increasing variety of CPE hardware platforms. Moving from monolithic updates to a modular design approach enables them to easily deploy and update applications and containers, without impacting the entirety of the CPE software stack,” said Leonard Dauphinee, President of prpl Foundation. “With containerization, providers can further simplify the scaling of operations.”

By isolating individual software components and the underlying CPE infrastructure, applications can be run as containers. Containers run in tailored execution environments which simplify and standardize their interactions and side effects. As a result, it becomes possible to independently manage the life cycles of containerized apps and services. Utilizing the cloud, orchestration operations can be standardized and coordinated, such as downloading, installing, launching, pausing, updating, restarting, and retiring applications.

“Our customers are excited about the opportunity to accelerate their innovation with the next generation of CPE software stacks powered by prpl and AWS IoT Greengrass,” said Shyam Krishnamoorthy, General Manager, AWS IoT. “AWS IoT Core and AWS IoT Greengrass, along with other AWS cloud services, provide built-in capabilities for CPE devices, including security, updateability, easy configurability and reliability at scale. Many service providers and CPE vendors are looking for these capabilities as they build with prpl’s open reference architectures to implement a modular design approach for CPE software stacks that leverage the advantages of the cloud.”
