IT News Online – NEC and Netcracker Launch 5G xHaul Transport Network Automation Solution Working with ADVA and Juniper Networks
TOKYO and HAMBURG, Sep 30, 2021 – (JCN Newswire) – NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) and its subsidiary Netcracker today announced an integrated multi-vendor solution that includes ADVA and Juniper Networks for optical packet automation, combining their best cutting-edge technologies in support of streamlined 5G transport. With this solution, ADVA provides secure optical connectivity and Juniper provides automated WAN IP transport solutions, while Netcracker brings unified end-to-end expertise in multi-domain service orchestration and automation. This solution is designed and developed as part of NEC’s xHaul transformation services as the foundation of an open ecosystem architecture that enables customers to have choice and flexibility, including the provision of service integration. and professional services.
Driven by digital transformation, the proliferation of devices and applications, and key industry trends such as 5G and the cloud, new traffic models are shaping the need for radically different network architectures to manage capacity and demand for ‘excellent user experiences. Converged IP and optical solutions like this, underpinned by automation, give service providers the agility, capacity, efficiency and consistency they need to deliver competitive and differentiated services. The sophisticated networking techniques required for large-scale 5G services, such as network slicing, also require multi-layered orchestration in the IP and optical domains to create a transparent and streamlined transport environment.
Aiming to solve these challenges for a multi-layered 5G transport network, the integrated multi-vendor optical packet automation solution provides operational simplicity with Netcracker’s multi-layered network domain orchestration complemented by Juniper’s Paragon Automation portfolio for control. based on network experience. Additionally, it provides a scalable IP transport network with 400G ZR enabled architectures by combining the 400G technology built into Juniper routers with ADVA’s open line system. This multi-vendor solution integrated by NEC is composed of the following elements:
NEC is leading the integration and implementation of the solution with 5G xHaul transformation services for multi-vendor, multi-layer and multi-domain architectures, leveraging its extensive global experience in packet and optical networking.
Netcracker’s new windowNetwork Domain Orchestration solution enables multi-domain service, network lifecycle management, assurance and automation of closed-loop operations over complex multilayer transport networks with a single pane of glass.
Juniper’s automated WAN transport portfolio including access and aggregation, edge and backbone IP routers, and cloud-native modular automation software applications that provide automation for an IP network infrastructure more predictable, reliable and measurable for 5G which significantly improves the user experience and the operator’s network economy.
ADVA’s open optical connectivity provides maximum capacity range for the lowest cost per bit and ensures robust data security with industry-leading encryption.
Through this convergence of cutting-edge solutions, Juniper, ADVA, NEC and Netcracker will join forces and work together to simplify the evolution of 5G transport networks for operators globally.
“In the age of 5G, NEC believes that co-creation is the key driver to generate and deliver new value to society. By working with our strategic partners Juniper and ADVA in our 5G xHaul ecosystem, NEC and Netcracker are keen to orchestrate the best of class multi-vendor solutions across multiple layers with automation that promises end-to-end transport network simplification. and a better total cost of ownership, ”said Mayuko Tatewaki, Managing Director, Service Provider Solutions Division, NEC Corporation.
“Dynamic services enabled by 5G need a powerful transport network to optimize the user experience. Netcracker’s network domain orchestration brings agility and automation to multilayer transport networks, and we are delighted to announce our joint solution with NEC, Juniper and ADVA to revolutionize the transport network for 5G digital services, ”said Bob Titus, CTO, Netcracker.
“Building an experience-driven network for the next decade requires an end-to-end approach that integrates multiple network layers, domains and providers. I am proud that NEC has selected Juniper’s industry-leading automated WAN transport portfolio to deliver simplicity, agility and for its Packet Optical multi-vendor automation solution to help drive operational efficiency and improve business. end-user service experience, ”said Thomas Desrues, vice president, Strategic Alliances and Global Systems Integrators, Juniper Networks.
“Tighter integration of the packet and optical layers allows network operators to automate their processes, deliver services much faster and reduce operational efforts. Our open optical systems are a key part of these open network architectures. Based on our experience of many open business projects, our team fully understands the importance of multi-vendor ecosystems and the value of close cooperation. By promoting openness and interoperability, we provide flexibility and technological choices to our customers, ”said Stephan Neidlinger, Vice President, Global Business Development, ADVA.
