Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a global data center solutions provider, and Robin.io, a 5G and application automation platform company, will jointly offer 5G infrastructure solutions to help reduce complexities, costs, and deployment times for mobile network operators (MNOs) and communication service providers (CSPs) rolling out next year.
The Robin.io core technologies – Multi Cluster Automation Platform (MDCAP), Robin Cloud Native Platform (CNP), and Robin Cloud Native Storage (CNS) – provide hyper-automation for orchestrating and managing the lifecycles of bare metal infrastructures, third-party appliances, Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), Cloud-native Network Functions (CNFs), and services, with built-in logging, monitoring, and policy engines.
Robin.io solutions would provide intuitive and declarative interfaces that auto-discover and auto-configure resources throughout the whole life cycle of the service. This would help minimize deployment complexity, timelines, and human error.

Quanta Cloud Technology collaborates with industry leaders to help telecommunication operators plan, implement, and operate their infrastructure in new ways. They use their expertise as a cloud data center provider to provide next-generation, carrier-grade solutions for 5G network infrastructures and workload optimization, such as the NFVI Forwarding Platform, Ceph Storage, and Enterprise 5G core network.
“With Robin’s application automation we are modernizing 5G solutions,” said Mike Yang, President of QCT. “By partnering with Robin.io, we are not only giving our mutual customers improved performance, but also pushing innovation to boost 5G application time-to-market.”
By working in close strategic partnership, QCT and Robin intend to enable the rapid deployment of cloud-native mobile core networks in an operationally optimal solution. By offering a seamless route to integration and orchestration, a QCT and Robin relationship would help decrease the development time for systems integrators, cloud service providers, and other strategic partnerships. This would also ease the cost and operational effort required for productization.
“Cloud-Native technology is now the standard deployments for 5G with significant economic and operational benefits for the operators,” said Partha Seetala, CEO and founder of Robin.io. “With close partnerships with QCT, we have delivered a production ready open and optimized platform for deployment and life cycle management. It’s an entire Telco Network Stack, with both CNFs and VNFs, that offers industry leading TCO.”
