Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)
The virtualization technologies that have revolutionized the IT world are now appealing to service providers that are facing the challenges associated with meeting rapidly increasing traffic demands.
From the onset, NEC and Netcracker have been leading the virtualization market by focusing on Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). In an effort to solve the challenges facing service providers, NEC was the first to commercialize OpenFlow, virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC: vMME and vS/P-GW) and virtualized Mobile Virtual Network Operator (vMVNO) solutions. Validating its ability to commercialize products in carrier-grade environments, NEC/Netcracker's SDN and NFV solutions ensure maximum performance, stability and reliability. NEC/Netcracker's solutions build on a strong foundation created through years of technology innovation and deep commercial experience in both IT and the telecom industries.
- Open Ecosystem
Provides rich virtual network functions on a common platform.
- Higher Scalability
Enables carrier-grade scale.
- TCO Saving
Open and sophisticated NFV solution reduces TCO.
Virtualized Mobile Core Solutions
NEC/Netcracker's mobile core network solutions simplify operations, facilitate procurement and optimize expenses while ensuring high-performance and high-reliability. NEC/Netcracker's vEPC aligns with NFV architecture and with general-purpose x86 servers, while optimizing resource usability and scalability. It also enables robust fault tolerance through the use of a dynamic auto-recovery and auto-healing mechanism.
NEC/Netcracker's virtualization solutions provide a variety of unique benefits to service providers, including on-demand scaling, service-driven network configuration and disaster resiliency.
Auto Healing and NFV Deployment
Meeting Evolving Service Provider Demands
vMVNO-GW is a GGSN/P-GW integrated system based on NFV concepts that implements the functionality and services required by mobile virtual network operators.
vMVNO-GW supports the operations of service providers of any size and scale and significantly reduces initial investment costs and operational costs. Starting with only a single 1U rack mount server, network functions can be easily expanded and scaled to accommodate fluctuating subscriber and traffic volume. With significantly lower total cost of ownership and more optimized operation than legacy network equipment, the solution enables MVNOs to launch new services quickly and easily.
