NEC to Offer VNFs on HP OpenNFV Platform

Last week, HP and NEC Corporation agreed to collaborate to accelerate the market for network functions virtualization (NFV) by integrating their solutions.

NFV offers a new way for CSPs to design, deploy, and manage networking services. By decoupling the network functions from proprietary hardware appliances, CSPs can accelerate the introduction of new, compelling services quickly and cost-effectively.

When fully integrated, NEC will be able to offer its virtual network functions on the HP OpenNFV Platform, including HP Helion OpenStack Carrier Grade, providing a pre-validated solution that will deliver the reliability, scalability and performance CSPs require. The integrated offering will encompass HP hardware, including HP servers, networking and storage products. Availability is targeted for later this year. Additionally, the companies plan to develop a joint NFV reference platform to demonstrate NEC virtual network functions and management software on HP OpenNFV infrastructure in OpenStack and Linux KVM environments.

"NFV technologies enable flexible, scalable, and operationally efficient service deployment that will transform conventional network operations," said Atsuo Kawamura, senior vice president, NEC Corporation. "NEC has a track record of expertise in commercially delivering SDN/NFV solutions for mobile and fixed networks. This collaboration with HP will help us further strengthen our NFV solutions portfolio to help CSPs bring new innovative services to market more quickly and efficiently."

"CSPs are looking for ways to easily implement NFV technology," said Werner Schaefer, vice president, Network Functions Virtualization, HP. "Our collaboration with NEC is intended to create more open environments for customers, meeting their desire for faster deployment at a lower cost, continuing our commitment to enabling increased adoption of NFV technology."
