NEC and Netcracker’s NFV Orchestrator Solution Highlights the Future of a Carrier Network Made of Modular Virtualized Network Functions
TOKYO, JAPAN and WALTHAM, MA — May 10, 2016 —
May 10, 2016 — NEC Corporation and Netcracker Technology announced today that they have participated in a trial with Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) to contribute to their NetroSphere concept.
NTT’s NetroSphere concept is designed to transform carrier networks from static, single-service networks powered by purpose-built hardware to a dynamic, flexible assembly of smaller, modular components. This enables telecommunications service providers to deliver a diverse range of services to a wide variety of end users, on demand and at low cost.
The trial incorporated numerous components, including a modular-based virtualized network, virtualized servers, orchestrators and controllers. As part of this trial, NEC and Netcracker provided their globally-proven NFV Orchestrator.
“We are excited to work with NTT in showcasing how the market’s shift into the virtualized and open world is feasible when management and orchestration capabilities are front and center,” said Atsuo Kawamura, Senior Vice President at NEC Corporation. “With the appropriate solutions in place, service providers can become more flexible, making it easier to meet the rapidly changing requirements of their customers and the industry.”
