Votre Partenaire

As your Cloud business partner, we want to help carriers build their own Carrier Cloud, a carrier-centric platform featuring services, solutions and people who allow you to acquire new value chains and revenue. Each cloud is different, so we are expanding our ability to work with you locally to help design the right business case, service portfolio and operational capability. This will enable you to operate an innovative, SLA-driven, carrier-centric, carrier-grade cloud.

Winning in Cloud

NEC believes that there are two critical elements to the winning formula for Carrier Cloud:

  1. Carrier-grade cloud, the ability to deliver cloud services that millions can rely on;
  2. IT + network innovation and integration.

Carrier-grade Cloud

As a carrier you know how to keep millions of customers happy at once. You know the cost of managing and compensating for an outage and you can imagine that while telecoms provided critical infrastructure to the nation, cloud IT infrastructure is critical to the businesses that would be paralyzed without access to their systems.

These are just some of the issues that underline the difference between mass cloud IT and today's enterprise IT. For this reason, NEC has developed carrier service platforms that are 99.9999% available at the service platform level. We are not suggesting that every customer wants to invest in that level of availability, but it is an option. In fact, many of the same mission critical middleware and operational management systems are available to all as part of our standard cloud proposition.

Inherent Cloud Risks
Cloud computing was designed as a business model that allowed extreme dynamic scaling at a cost closely matching actual usage. To achieve this dream, multi-tenant scale and resource sharing are essential.

The consolidation and centralization of resources brings a concentration of risk – that of all the eggs being in the same datacenter. Secondly, to continually offer more value, cloud services are "encouraged" to interact for the common good, exchanging data and sharing functionality. This closer cohesion links services such that they become highly
dependent upon each other. This is another substantial inherent risk. Many cloud risks can typically be resolved through various forms of redundancy and service mobility.

- Redundancy ensures that there are always more IT resources (and copies of data) available to continue processing during any failure;
- Service mobility ensures that the live service can be moved at the right time to alternate resources, while providing fast access to storage.

To implement these strategies we use many tools and processes including Invariant Analysis (which can detect silent errors), Virtual Machine mobility (which moves the service before failure) and Network Virtualization (which moves the service between datacenters) to name but a few. Happily, NEC uses these same management techniques to make clouds more environmentally friendly too.

IT + Network Innovation and Integration

Carrier Cloud is a fusion of IT and telecoms business models, technology and infrastructure – plus some people to help. For NEC and our customers, now is the time of IT and network integration: Open Flow technology lets the application layer talk to and
dynamically control the network. Thin clients are tuned for DSL and wireless networks. Home Gateways link home IT to the WAN. Virtualized servers smooth video streaming peaks on VOD management systems, while application statistics between network
and application look for silent problems. We have released our Cloud Platform Suite: a Cloud IT virtual processing and storage platform with power, weight and cooling optimized for telecoms switching rooms.
