Enea Wins Layer123 Network Transformation Award

Company’s NFV Access chosen for Best New NFVi Platform

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Oct. 18, 2018 – Enea® (NASDAQ Stockholm: ENEA), a global supplier of network software platforms and world class services, today announced that Enea® NFV Access won the prestigious Layer123 Network Transformation Award (NetTA) as the Best NFVi Platform 2018.

Enea NFV Access features a lightweight virtualization software runtime platform – without the need for OpenStack – designed for deployment on edge devices at the customer premise. It is streamlined for high networking performance with minimal RAM footprint for both platforms and VNFs. Enea NFV Access provides a foundation for uCPE and SD-WAN agility, reducing cost and complexity for computing at the network edge.

"We saw at an early stage that the network edge offered challenges in terms of cost-effectiveness combined with high performance", said Karl Mörner, SVP R&D and Product Management at Enea's NFV Business Unit. "These are problems that Enea has traditionally been really good at solving. Thanks to our experience in providing operating systems for the most demanding environments, we were able to develop Enea NFV Access – a lightweight, high-performance, virtualization software platform for uCPE and SD-WAN use cases."

The award was presented on October 10th at the SDN NFV World Congress, one of the largest events in the carrier network transformation industry with more than 2000 executives and decision makers. Awards are judged independently by a panel of leading analysts invited from SDN NFV Congress Analyst Partners.
