Huawei and TBR jointly release “NFV Systems Integration Services” White Paper
[Barcelona, Spain, February 24, 2016] According to a new white paper entitled “Operators Accelerate NFV Adoption for Faster Agility and Openness”, the complexity of NFV integration, especially in multi-vendors and open source environment integration and to provide end to end service assurance, is the biggest challenge in transforming carrier networks through virtualization. To solve these issues, many operators are turning to a prime systems integrator with strong knowledge of telecom and IT to assist in NFV design, deployment, testing and operations. The white paper was published jointly by TBR, a global advisory firm and Huawei.
“The majority of operators we surveyed believe that the prime-integrator approach is the most effective, especially in the early days of NFV implementation,” said TBR Executive Analyst Michael Sullivan-Trainor, “Huawei is staking a leading position in this market with many of its commercial NFV projects in 2015 involving the prime SI role.”
“With our global knowledge of the telco business, NFV system integration experience, the latest released solution and NFV Open Lab pre-validation and pre-integration capabilities, Huawei is the best system integration partner to help operators to quickly commercialize telco cloud,” said James Zhai, General Manager of NFV Integration Services, Global Technical Service Department at Huawei.
The latest Huawei NFV Integration Service solution is designed to help operators quickly commercialize virtualization across their networks. The service’s three solutions are: 1) NFV Solution Broker Service which helps operators find the best solution for ICT converged network evolution including evolution planning, architecture design, and migration planning; 2) NFV Network Readiness Service to integrate different components and ensures the resulting network is carrier-grade and ready for commercial use; and 3) NFV Case Customization Service which includes developing particular NFV case implementations such Test as a Service, VNF Lifecycle Management and NFV major event use cases.
Huawei has accumulated more than 50 commercial NFV projects as of year-end 2015. Customers include Vodafone in Italy, and Ooredoo in Qatar and Kuwait.
