NTT Teams with ALU and Fujitsu on Server Study

NTT has launched a collaborative study with Alcatel-Lucent Japan and Fujitsu to develop server architecture for core systems of telecom networks.

NTT said it is interested in servers based on general purpose hardware that enable faster development of applications.  In this server architecture, all network functions would be realized on network-wide virtualized hardware.

NTT Laboratories will contribute core technologies. Alcatel-Lucent Japan is developing virtualization and orchestration technologies for network server systems, and Fujitsu has extensive experience in systematization of distributed computing and maintaining large-scale server systems.

The project is now underway.
