Make virtuality a reality

The telco industry agrees on the need to move to NFVI to enable new revenue opportunities and costs savings, but there’s less consensus on how to do it.

Whilst it’s tempting to think that a solution based on best-of-breed components would be the best way to succeed with NFVI, it’s our belief that only by choosing a partner with a total system view can you make virtuality a reality.

Ericsson NFVI comes pre-integrated, tested, verified and documented. It’s an approach already trusted by many of the world’s leading service providers.

System verified NFVi for real results

System verified NFVI for real results

To make sure you can deploy your services rapidly and reliably, we spent nearly two years selecting, integrating, and testing our best components to form a complete NFVI solution. Here are some of the results:

  • Minimize complexity and system integration at deployment reducing time to market and total cost of ownership
  • Rapidly configure and modify virtual datacenters (vPODs) to optimize your infrastructure
  • Quickly roll out applications for telecom, OSS, BSS, IT and media workloads from multiple vendors
  • Accelerate virtualization through an efficient automation and orchestration
  • Define and automate policies for performance optimization
  • Use one infrastructure to satisfy different tenants’ needs
Ericsson’s solution is a leader in the NFVI market. The solution is pre-integrated and its tested blueprint helps operators reduce time to market, and minimize testing and rollout time for new services.

Is your NFV Data Center ready for 5G?

When moving to 5G the DC infrastructure needs to cater for cloud native container based applications. Adding a container as a service platform CaaS will be a solution. Combined with software defined infrastructure SDI which enables virtual DC instances vPoD's this will be easy to mange.
