Huawei has launched a Cloud Edge solution for implementing Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) capabilities on mobile broadband (MBB) networks.
Cloud Edge builds on Huawei’s industry-leading SingleEPC solution for convergent Evolved Packet Core (EPC) operations, and encompasses capabilities for virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC), virtualized Multi-Service Engine (vMSE), and Cloud Management and Orchestration (MANO).
“Cloud Edge employs a cloud-oriented MBB network architecture to achieve automation of whole-network management,” the company mentioned in its statement.
It is a part of Huawei’s SoftCOM roadmap for introducing advances in cloud, NFV, and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technologies into the global telecom market over the next 10 years,” it said.
During the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2014, Huawei in partnership with leading operators will introduce further information about Cloud Edge’s capabilities for agile mobile telecom operations that are helping Huawei and its customer build a better connected world.
