Cloud Execution Environment
Ericsson Cloud Execution Environment (CEE) is telco-grade virtual infrastructure manager (VIM) Certified on OpenStack and OpenNFV. Deployed in our system-verified NFVI solution, it dynamically allocates resources for VNFs with telecom grade capabilities such as redundancy, high availability, high throughput with low latency, trusted tenant isolation, automatic VM recovery, and more. Ericsson CEE is running commercially at more than 120 operators around the world to provide efficient operations and optimized performance for their VNFs while securing an always-available cloud and NFVI infrastructure.
OUR KEY BENEFITS
Industrialized into a complete solution
Ericsson’s cloud execution environment has been tested, integrated, and documented as part of our pre-verified NFVI solution and Ericsson VNF certification program. Out of the box, with minimal systems integration work, it is ready to run real-world VNF workloads, and can be easily deployed in multiple instances wherever needed across your network.
NFVI settings such as huge pages, jumbo frames, NUMA awareness and pinning are already set to provide the best performance for virtual network function (VNF). If deployed with software defined networking (SDN), it supports DCP IPv6 and dual-stack routing.
Open and future-proof
Supports native OpenStack APIs, Certified OpenStack and is verified with OPNFV’s validation program (OVP) using the Dovetail test suite. It currently evolving toward supporting containerized environments for 5G applications. It can manage both applications and hardware from either Ericsson or other vendors.
