Tokyo, Japan: NEC and its partners A10 Networks, Adtran (formerly ADVA), Fortinet and Juniper Networks launch value-added xHaul solution suite.

This new offering from NEC and its partners aims at speeding up the monetisation of operators‘ transport networks. It will enable traditional IP and optical transport networking to bring additional value with enhanced capabilities, including data centre networks, network security, and automation to maximise operators’ profitability.

xHaul, the backbone of the entire network, needs to adapt to industry transformations. Such as Open RAN to enable flexible networking, edge computing and network slicing for monetisation, multi-domain automation for operational simplicity and vigilant security measures to protect networks against increasing risks.

To help operators address requirements for the xHaul network, NEC takes a unique holistic approach to move beyond the siloed proposition prevalent in the industry today.

This collaborative approach according to NEC improves efficiency and Return on Investment (ROI), enabling the optimisation of the entire transport network. Leveraging its extensive experience as a global system integrator, as well as its IT and network engineering expertise, NEC delivers a single xHaul solution suite. The suite provides tailored solutions for operators to maximize the value and efficiency of their networks.

NEC’s 5G Transport Centers of Excellence (CoEs) have engineered the new value-added xHaul solution suite. NEC’s central hubs meet regional and local operators’ needs while ensuring the high performance of networks. The value-added xHaul solution suite means NEC will continually contribute to advancing operators’ xHaul networks and their business success globally.

“Our new value added xHaul solution suite addresses our customers’ demands to adapt to emerging 5G dynamics in xHaul flexibly and with increased simplicity, better quality, and more profitability,” said Hideyuki Ogata, GM of Service Provider Solutions Department, NEC Corporation.

“We have been meeting the needs and demands of 5G in the networking and security areas through our strong and long-standing relationship with NEC. As a part of NEC’s value added xHaul solution suite, we are thrilled to continuously provide solutions for the evolving 5G network,” said Mikko Disini, VP of Product Line Management – A10 Networks.
