News for 5G and IoT: Successful Next-Generation Enterprise Platform Trial

08 May 2017

NEC Corporation, a provider of information technology and network solutions, in collaboration with software developer Red Hat, K.K., has taken part in a successful trial of cellular provider KDDI’s next-generation enterprise platform. The platform includes infrastructure and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and can operate with multiple types of systems.

Faster and more efficient services will become necessary on a larger number of servers and infrastructure as 5G and IoT services become more prevalent. Trials conducted from January to April 2017 confirmed the feasibility of several advanced platform functions:

  • Utilization of open cloud technology to support the construction of reliable system infrastructure for telecommunications carriers;
  • Integrated management of numerous services using simple infrastructure, flexible services and efficient operations;
  • Maintenance and replacement of servers and storage devices without stopping service; and
  • Advanced monitoring utilizing distributed monitoring technology from the KDDI Research Institute.

The Red Hat OpenStack Platform was used to create an open cloud environment, while NEC utilized its cloud infrastructure construction experience to manage building of infrastructure. NEC plans to continue its collaboration with Red Hat, K.K. in order to enable performance of KDDI’s next-generation platform.
