The virtualization technologies which has revolutionized the IT world, is now appealing to telecom carriers and service providers who are facing challenges to meet explosive traffic demands.
From the onset, NEC has been leading in the area of network virtualization focusing on Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). In solving the telecom operators’ challenges, NEC has been the first to commercialize OpenFlow solutions, vEPC (Virtualized Evolved Packet Core: vMME and vS/P-GW) and vMVNO-GW. Proven in commercial carrier-grade environment, NEC’s SDN and NFV solutions deliver performance, stability and reliability. NEC’s solution builds on a strong foundation that is created through years of technology innovation and deep commercial experience in both IT and Telecom industry.
NEC’s mobile core network solutions simplify operations, facilitate procurement and optimize expenditure while achieving high-performance and high-reliability. vEPC aligns with Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) architecture with general-purpose x86 servers. vEPC design promotes optimal use of resources while delivering scale. In meeting the carrier-grade operational requirements, vEPC delivers robust fault tolerance by dynamic auto-recovery and auto-healing mechanism.
NEC’s virtualization solutions provide unique values to telecom carriers in diversified aspects including on-demand scaling, service-driven network configuration, and disaster resiliency.
