System-verified NFVI for the service provider edge and central data center.

Launching: Edge NFVI

NFVI (Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure) is a telco cloud platform which virtual network functions (VNFs) and applications are deployed on.

The NFV infrastructure runs telecom, OSS, BSS, media and many types of IoT applications. NFVI is defined by ETSI as part of the NFV specification.

The telco industry agrees on the need to move to NFVI to enable new revenue opportunities and operational costs savings. Whilst it’s tempting to think that a decoupled solution would be the best way to succeed with NFVI, it’s our belief that a total system is needed to be successful in the NFVI transformation towards 5G. 

Edge NFVI solution brief

NFV infrastructure transformation with low risk

To make sure you can deploy services rapidly and reliably, we have pre-integrated and tested hardware and software components to form a complete system verified NFV infrastructure which is running live with several of the world’s leading service providers.

A pre-integrated, tested and verified NFV infrastructure
Rather than trying to integrate your own components, you can reduce deployment time and costs with our system-verified NFVI for central data centers and for the edge.

Take a faster path to 5G
Reduce your time to market for new services with a low total cost of ownership while laying the foundation for 5G.

Quickly deploy applications from multiple vendors with our open NFVI based on ETSI architectural principles. Choose hardware from Ericsson or third-party providers.

Stay ready for tomorrow
Implement a solution today that can easily be evolved with container management capabilities for a multitude of 5G and IoT opportunities. For edge opportunities, we are offering Ericsson Edge NFVI – a small and powerful solution optimized to handle the distributed workload.
