NEC contributes to KDDI’s next generation enterprise platform

9 May 2017

Japan’s NEC Corp has announced its contributions to a trial of network operator KDDI’s next generation enterprise platform, in collaboration with open source cloud solution provider Red Hat. The trials demonstrated the feasibility of KDDI’s next generation integrated platform, which includes infrastructure capable of supporting future 5G/Internet of Things (IoT) applications and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), and can operate with multiple types of systems, NEC said. In the trials, the Red Hat OpenStack Platform was used to create an open cloud environment, while NEC managed the necessary infrastructure building. Going forward, NEC plans to continue collaborating with Red Hat to further evolve and accelerate the performance of KDDI’s next generation platform.
