ECI's Mercury Network Function Virtualization (NFV) family empowers your network to respond quickly to new customer service opportunities. Mercury lets you mix and match a rich library of certified ECI and third-party virtualized network functions (VNFs) to create differentiable service value. This drives new revenues for fixed and mobile networks and streamlines operations, reducing OPEX.
Providing end-users with the best low latency services experience, Mercury excels at deploying VNFs at the network edge, in the access, or at the customer premises. Mercury can also deploy VNFs more centrally in metro POPs, the network core, or in a data center.
Mercury is fully-compliant with ETSI Management and Orchestration (MANO). NFV infrastructure platforms are available as thin or thick appliances. For an integrated transport solution, a Mercury NFVi blade is available within the Neptune packet-optical transport system.
