Cloud Execution Environment
Ericsson Cloud Execution Environment is the virtual infrastructure manager (VIM), based on OpenStack and OPNFV, in our market leading NFVI solution.
This telecom grade VIM has been deployed with more than 50 operators around the world and provides efficient operations and optimized performance for virtual network functions while securing an always available cloud and NFVI environment.
Industrialized Telcom Grade VIM
Verified in a complete NFVI solution with real VNF workloads and designed for environments with pre-set optimized NFVI configurations. This makes it easier to instantiate several deployments network wide.
NFVI settings, e.g. huge pages, jumbo frames, pinning are optimized for VNFs as well as for dynamic workloads with high VM deployment ratio. Optionally integrates SDN, now supporting DHCP IPv6 and dual-stack routing.
Open and Future Proof
Supports native OpenStack APIs and verified with OPNFV validation program (OVP) using test suite Dovetail. Evolving towards containerized supported environment meeting the needs for 5G applications. Open for third party applications and hardware.
