ZTE cooperates with mainstream NFV vendors based on Openlab making a crossed verification plan and scheme of NFVI layer, VIM layer, VNF layer and NFVO layer together with them, finds and solves multi-vendor interoperability problems and reliability problems in advance, accumulates abundant multi-vendor integration experience, and builds an E2E solution knowledge repository. ZTE provides a multi-scenario, open and customizable integration solution to satisfy the customer's different requirements based on the Openlab experience repository. With pre-integration verification in Openlab, the solution can decrease the risk of system commercialization greatly, shorten the online launch time of new services, and decrease the construction cost.
Help Telenor realize 'One Asia' target in 2020.
In 2017-2018, ZTE cooperated with Telenor Group deploying vCS based on the Red Hat cloud platform in Pakistan and Malaysia, promoted opening & cooperation through three-layer decoupling to help Telenor realize the 'One Asia' target in 2020.
Construct 5G-oriented large-scale vEPC network based on Red Hat platform.
For VIL of India in 2018, ZTE constructed a Red Hat cloud platform based on ZTE hardware servers, deployed a 5G-oriented large-scale vEPC network of the CUPS architecture, and deploys Mavinir vendor vIMS and bearer VoLTE services. During the project, ZTE finds and solves the problems through the Openlab pre-integration environment in advance, decreases the risks of multi-vendor integration effectively and realizes fast deployment of commercialization environment.
Abundant global NFV commercialization/PoC integration delivery experience.
With 10 years of exploration from 2010 to 2020, ZTE helped H3G Austria forge full-convergent 5G core network deploying APPs of multiple vendors such as ZTE, HPE, Nokia, Convercom and MetaSwitch, which involves products of 5GC, IMS, EPC, VAS, wireless and so on.
In 2019-2020, ZTE got the market share of China Mobile's bidding of the NFV network cloud software/hardware integration project of phase 2. ZTE completed large-scale resource pool integration of over 20,000+ servers realizing commercialization integration of ZTE cloud platform/NFVO with 30+ vendors' VNF and 3+ vendors' Ceph system, which promotes the integration efficiency by over 60% with auto integration tools.
Auto integration platform promotes integration efficiency.
Deploy an environment quickly: The auto deployment tool can complete installation deployment of hardware, cloud platform, MANO and VNF quickly;
Promote deployment efficiency: Provide visual deployment preview, basic deployment input, zero intervention during deployment, and output a testable and acceptable virtual environment;
Improve deployment quality: Support E2E auto deployment, support checking before and after deployment, support observation of the entire deployment in real-time, display the deployment progress and deployment logs in real time, support the pop-up window of errors, output a deployment report after deployment in time, and guarantee the entire deployment;
Simplify deployment procedures: Following the automatic deployment procedures, the auto deployment tool can complete deployment of network, hardware, CEPH and VIM as well as MANO and VNF automatically.
Deliver multi-layer integration products.
Provide NFVI integration services: Integrate hardware devices with a cloud management system, including compute resources, storage resources, network resources, as well as cloud management platforms such as Openstack, VMware, and Red Hat.
Provide MANO integration services: Support orchestration of multiple services and resources, as well as VNF/NS life cycle management;
Provide VNFs integration services: Support various services of VNF/NS, such as vIMS, vEPC, 5GC, SDM, VAS and other E2E services;
Provide PNF integration services: Support interconnection between classical network and NFV virtual network.
