NEC Showcases Carrier Solutions for Increasing Revenues and Accelerating Service Innovation at Mobile World Congress 2014

LONDON and TOKYO, Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) is showcasing its portfolio of solutions to help telecom carriers increase service agility, improve revenues and affordably meet rising mobile capacity demands at Mobile World Congress 2014.

NEC's portfolio of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solutions will be a key focus of the show, including demonstrations of the world's first commercially available virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) and virtualized Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE).

EPC is likely to be one of the first network elements that operators virtualize as they roll out LTE services. NEC's vEPC is already being implemented in Myanmar  - one of Asia's most promising growth markets - as part of a national project to support LTE and fixed-line telephone services.

NEC's vCPE solution enables IP functions to be shifted from a customer's on-premises equipment to a telecom operator's network. This allows operators to rapidly deploy services, improve network operations and provide new services in a more cost effective manner. Additionally, it increases the capability to remotely fix technical problems, thereby reducing costs, while accelerating the time-to-market.

Furthermore, NEC will highlight its Traffic Management Systems (TMS) and NetCracker's Telecom Operation and Management Systems (TOMS) that provide centralized control over carriers' end-to-end networks and optimize traffic flow. This enables telecom carriers to differentiate themselves on a Quality of Service (QoS) basis, service providers to gain bandwidth assurance, and consumers to benefit from increased security and a more consistent quality.

NEC solutions at Mobile World Congress 2014 include: Carrier Data Center Infrastructure, Virtual Data Center (vDC) Solutions, Enterprise-RAN (E-RAN) Solutions, Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), Big Data Analysis Solutions and Image Recognition Services

Mr. Takayuki Morita, executive vice president at NEC, commented, "Mobile World Congress provides an ideal opportunity for NEC to showcase its ability to help telecom operators cost-effectively anticipate and meet the coverage and capacity demands of consumers in a mobile data era. By using our innovative SDN, NFV and related carrier solutions, operators can gain unprecedented control over the scale, scope and speed of their networks."

NEC welcomes visitors at Mobile World Congress at the Fira Gran Via, Barcelona, February 24-27, 2014 in Hall 3, Stand 3N10.

By 2021, 500 million sensors are set to be deployed worldwide, nearly 40x as many as exist today. In order to scale fast and keep pace with industry growth, the team at Unacast turned to the public cloud to build the world's largest location data platform with optimal scalability, minimal DevOps, and maximum flexibility. Drawing from his experience with the Google Cloud Platform, VP of Engineering Andreas Heim will speak to the architecture of Unacast's platform and developer-focused processes.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
The vast majority of businesses now use cloud services, yet many still struggle with realizing the full potential of their IT investments. In particular, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) lack the internal IT staff and expertise to fully move to and manage workloads in public cloud environments. Speaker Todd Schwartz will help session attendees better navigate the complex cloud market and maximize their technical investments. The SkyKick co-founder and co-CEO will share the biggest challenges uncovered by the company's [2017 survey](https://offers.skykick.com/top-cloud-challenges) of North American business, sales and IT leaders.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
