Infrastructure Services

CENGN Infrastructure Services Are The Key Technical Resources Provided to Each Accepted Project.

Our infrastructure services provide you with the technology needed to validate your solutions and push your products to market. One unique aspect of our infrastructure is its adaptability. Each service can be customized to be used together or by itself as per the demands of the project. Our infrastructure is also flexible on the size of the project and can be changed based on the requirements for the proof-of-concept’s validation and demonstration. By working in collaboration with us, you are empowered to bring innovation to the ICT sector at a much faster rate.


We host a multi-vendor cloud infrastructure, offering cloud tenancy services for the entirety of the project. The following chart provides more in-depth information about our cloud tenancy services and how they can be of use to your innovative ideas.

vCPU1: The 20 vCPUs can be consumed by the user in any required combination of Openstack virtual machines (VM) quotas. Example: Small Flavour VM *20 or Extra Large Flavour VM * 2. Currently, any project required VMs are created by CENGN engineers.

Internet2: Our cloud has multi-redundant 1G connections to the Internet and 10G connections to major public cloud service providers such as Google, MS Office 365 and Akamai. The requirement for inbound data will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

We offer a supplementary hardware hosting service that works in conjunction with our cloud tenancy services. With this add-on service, if a project requires a specific device to be connected to the applications and/or software running in the tenancy, we can host the device in our facility and provide a network connection to the tenancy. The chart to the left explains the 4 hosting services that we can offer your enterprise.

Software PlatformWind River Titanium Edge Cloud
Key FeaturesAvailability, Carrier Grade Management, Performance and Scalability, Networking Services and VNF Management Services


With this service offering, customers are allocated a dedicated Cloud Platform based on Wind River Titanium Edge, a Carrier Grade virtualization platform. Titanium Edge is a high-performance, high availability as a Service (IaaS) cloud hosting environment designed for use cases where failures and outages must be avoided at all costs. Supporting standard OpenStack REST APIs, Linux and DPDK, Titanium Edge hosting is an ideal option for those familiar with standard enterprise IaaS offerings but demanding higher performance and reliability. Optionally, customers can utilize the Cloud Tenancy service to run any additional application or software to integrate with Titanium Edge cloud.
