SERVICES
RESOURCES

NEC/NetCracker SDN/NFV Solution's portfolio includes a wide range of professional services as well as in-depth products that ensure CSPs are able to maximize their use of virtualization and experience results that introduce critical competitive advantages.

Converged End-to-End Orchestration

This offering enables the end-to-end orchestration of service provisioning and assurance for hybrid networks that consist of both virtualized components and traditional network technologies. It is policy-driven, which allows hybrid, virtualized networks to be provisioned according to specific customer types, security requirements, use cases, applications and traffic models.

Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC)

This first-to-market vEPC solution is software-based and runs on COTS servers, leveraging the separation between control and data planes. It is fully virtualized and takes advantage of cloud technologies to enable flexible and dynamic infrastructure deployment as well as process automation. The solution also guarantees carrier-grade performance and market-proven stability.

Virtualized Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE)

NEC/NetCracker SDN/NFV Solution's vCPE offering addresses the challenges associated with complex CPE maintenance, lengthy service rollouts and poor performance visibility by moving CPE functions into the telco network.

Virtualized Data Center (vDC)

This simplifies data center network structures with its virtual resource component, centralizing network provisioning and management to enable dynamic and optimized resource binding. The vDC solution provides centralized service provisioning and resource management and helps CSPs scale out network architecture to support "pay-as-you-grow" deployments.

SDN Control

The NEC/NetCracker SDN Control solution includes SDN switches, an SDN Controller and a Transport SDN, providing dynamic, flexible, programmable and centralized control and end-to-end provisioning capabilities to meet constantly changing customer requirements and optimize network resource usage.
