Ericsson: Ericsson launches verified NFV infrastructure solution

· Ericsson has released its verified Network Functions
Virtualization infrastructure (NFVi) solution including transformation
service offering and multivendor capabilities.

* NFVi supports a software defined infrastructure, providing increased speed,
agility and efficiency when deploying new services
* Solution and services offering supports a host of flexible deployment
scenarios, and provides an important incremental step in building the
infrastructure for 5G and IoT

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) has launched its verified Network Functions
Virtualization infrastructure (NFVi) solution with multivendor capabilities
and a transformation service offering.

Ericsson's NFVi solution offering is based on a well-defined architecture,
completely pre-integrated and verified platform consisting of hardware
(Ericsson's Hyperscale Datacenter System 8000 (HDS 8000) and Blade Server
Platform (BSP8000), Ericsson Cloud Execution Environment, Ericsson Cloud
Manager, Ericsson Cloud SDN and consulting, system integration and support
services. Modular in it design components can be substituted to accommodate
service provider's needs.

Ericsson's portfolio is designed to deliver flexibility during Virtual Network
Functions (VNFs) deployments. Coupled with a services offering, the solution
supports a host of different deployment scenarios ranging from full
decoupling of NFV components from different vendors to a full stack solution.

As the first incremental step in building the infrastructure for 5G and the
Internet of Things (IoT), NFVi supports a software defined infrastructure
that provides increased speed, agility and efficiency when deploying new
services.

Richard Schenk, Head of Network and Datacenter Development, Swisscom says "The
advantage our customers will experience with Ericsson cloud and NFVi is that
we can introduce new products. We will bring services which we do not know
today, as in the IoT environment. We will also be able to configure services
with network slices so that they fit exactly to the product that we have at
this moment"

Susan James, Head of Product Line NFV Infrastructure, Ericsson, says:
"Ericsson's NFVi solution is an important step on our journey to building the
infrastructure for 5G and the Internet of Things. By offering a flexible,
pre-integrated and verified open system platform, we can provide our
customers with several different deployment options ranging all the way from
full decoupling of NFV components to full stack solution deployment. This
provides a shorter time to market, with increased speed, agility and
efficiency for our customers deploying new services."

Patrick Filkins, Telecom Analyst, Technology Business Research (TBR) Telecom
Practice, said, "TBR conducted primary research earlier this year, in which
we asked Tier 1 global operators about their perceptions of the
best-positioned NFV and SDN suppliers. TBR investigated the operators'
adoption drivers, use cases, adoption timeframes, and spending for NFV and
SDN as well as operator views on which suppliers were best positioned to
address NFV and SDN requirements. Ericsson was evaluated by the operators as
the best-positioned supplier to address NFV and SDN requirements."

Ericsson has already announced various NFV contracts with a host of tier 1
operators around the world, including Telstra, Swisscom, Telefonica, Axiata,
Digicel and SoftBank, and was the first vendor with live commercial
deployments of NFV.
