TOKYO, Jun 17 – NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) and Netcracker Technology today announced their participation in the OPNFV Summit 2016 in Berlin, Germany, June 20-23, at the InterContinental Berlin. NEC is a platinum member of the Open Platform for Network Functions Virtualization (OPNFV) and a Gold Sponsor for this year’s OPNFV Summit, where the company will be involved in numerous sessions and panels as well as exhibit SDN/NFV solutions, including Management and Network Orchestration (MANO) and NEC Cloud Solutions at stand B04. 

NEC’s contributions to OPNFV include an active role as a Project Lead of the OPNFV’s “Doctor” project, where fast and dynamic fault management in OpenStack will be presented at the OPNFV Proof-of-Concept (PoC) Zone(1). The Doctor PoC, hosted by NTT DOCOMO, is a completely community-driven activity to demonstrate OPNFV’s achievement in upstream development, pure Open Source Software (OSS) integration and validation of enhanced fault management solutions in NFV-based platforms.

“NEC has been active in the OPNFV from its launch in 2014. The OPNFV Summit 2016 enables NEC to showcase its open collaboration activities with the community and the promise of NFV adaptation by operators as part of ensuring greater simplicity and flexibility in telecom networks,” said Atsuo Kawamura, Senior Vice President at NEC Corporation.

“NEC and Netcracker are ready to deliver SDN/NFV solutions which enable operator specific use cases, fulfilling missing requirements in NFV platforms and MANO, and respecting de facto standards embraced in OPNFV.”
