Ericsson Supports Multi-vendor NFV for NTT DOCOMO

Ericsson announced that its open NFV platform is supporting the multi-vendor solution deployed in the commercial network of NTT DOCOMO. The launch represents the first commercial deployment of this kind in the world.

The Ericsson NFV platform provides interoperability and connectivity with any carrier class virtualized network function and SDN. Based on an open architecture, the solution consists of the OpenStack-based Ericsson Cloud Execution Environment as the virtualization platform and the NFV orchestrator, Ericsson Cloud Manager. In addition, Ericsson provided system integration and support services.  The solution initially supports a multi-vendor virtual EPC deployment.

Seizo Onoe, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at NTT DOCOMO, says: "DOCOMO has again demonstrated its technology leadership by the launch of multi-vendor NFV.  I am extremely excited to see this progress to provide better services based on standardized future-proof architecture."

Anders Lindblad, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit Cloud & IP at Ericsson, says: "As the solution partner to NTT DOCOMO, Ericsson is proud to be part of a landmark launch which is significant for the whole industry. We believe our mutual experiences from the Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV) network architecture will accelerate global standardization and interoperability. We will continue to bring cost effective network operation and flexible, dynamic resource management for them. "
