Lanner Electronics Inc. Extends Carrier-Grade NFV Ecosystem Partnership by Joining Forces with NEC and Netcracker

A Foundation for Solutions in NFV for Communication Service Providers.

BARCELONA, SPAIN — February 27, 2017 — 

Today at the Mobile World Congress 2017, Lanner Electronics Inc., a global specialist in software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) platforms, is expanding the solution ecosystem by close collaboration with NEC and Netcracker. 

"The combination of the Netcracker and Lanner vCPE solutions will help communications service providers and enterprise customers to simplify the deployment of new services," said Jeans Tseng, VP Telecommunication Application Business Unit at Lanner Electronics Inc. "The end-to-end service and network orchestration from Netcracker provides the framework to manage services dynamically, and the integration of the Lanner and Netcracker solution will bring an integrated and validated solution to the market."

The demo showcase at MWC 2017 provides an example how NEC/Netcracker's Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solution can rapidly create, deploy and monetize virtualized B2B services. Lanner's vCPE Gateway will be used as the foundation for SD-WAN at the customer premises, on top of which different value-added network services can be added through a self-service portal.  

The foundation as an ecosystem for VNF deployments

The collaboration in the ecosystem is a foundation to make the deployments for VNFs successful. Many communication service providers are in the process to transform the network, and the validated solution of Netcracker and Lanner provides the assurance of interoperability in a multivendor environment.

"NEC/Netcracker is excited to partner with Lanner as part of its Ecosystem 2.0 initiative. This partnership represents a strong value proposition to our service provider customers that are looking to break away from monolithic network architectures and bring in new innovative, best-of-breed solutions and accelerate their own journey toward NFV," said Rahul Chandra, Vice President of NEC/Netcracker's Worldwide SDN/NFV Business Development. "Together, NEC/Netcracker and Lanner are collaborating in the NaaS space and developing solutions that enable service providers to quickly launch new multivendor value-added services in the network edge, capitalizing on the incredible opportunity to better serve the enterprise market."
