Enea announces multi-architecture NFV software platform for virtualization of the network edge

Enea® NFV Core – The first commercial deployment ready OPNFV based platform for network operators, service providers, and telecom/network equipment manufacturers

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, April 25, 2017 – Enea® (NASDAQ OMX Nordic:ENEA) today announced Enea NFV Core – a high performance, deployment ready NFV software platform specifically targeting central office virtualization at the network edge. Enea NFV Core helps network operators, service providers and TEMs/NEPs, wanting to realize their vision for a virtualized network edge.

NFV brings a promise of CapEx and OpEx savings and a flexibility in creating new services. While the datacenter/cloud side of NFV software is maturing with consequent commoditization, the base station/customer premise side is developing, with few independent software vendors with viable offerings, and with significant potential for differentiation as the use cases differ for each deployment scenario.

Enea addresses typical distributed NFV use cases, like virtual Customer Premise Equipment (vCPE), and Enea NFV Core is targeted specifically for central office applications. Enea NFV Core is built on the open technology standards OPNFV and OpenStack, leveraging the speed of innovation of the open source community. Its multi-architecture support enables Virtualized Network Functions (VNF) to execute on both Intel x86 and ARM commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware.

“With a strong legacy and expertise in the access network outside the data center, Enea focuses its solutions and engagements on the edge market segment”, said Karl Mörner, SVP Product Management. “Enea NFV Core is ready for deployment and is configured, integrated, optimized, tested and verified especially for edge use cases, saving customers time and effort.”

“As the market and performance leader in multicore processor SoC’s for cloud, datacenter, intelligent networking and security applications, we engineer and manufacture optimized multicore SoC’s with rich integration of compute, I/O, and hardware accelerators under standard APIs for ARM based platforms,” said Raj Singh, Vice President and General Manager, Network and Communications Group, Cavium. “Cavium and Enea deliver solutions optimized for next-gen hybrid NFV architecture and help accelerate time-to-market for service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers”.

Enea NFV Core is hardened and deployment ready in a way that is not available in open source, saving months of work to get it up and running. It is configured, enhanced and optimized to provide the performance and availability required in edge use cases. Already integrated, tested and validated, it removes complexity and risk from deployment projects.
