FREMONT, CA: NEC Corporation announced its establishment of an Open RAN laboratory in India to complement its Center of Excellence (CoE) in the U.K. The facility will accelerate the development of NEC's 5G open ecosystem by pre-integrating partner Open RAN components to form end-to-end commercial-ready solutions according to customer-specific needs. The solutions will undergo end-to-end practical validations on functional/operational performance and quality assurance throughout all layers of the RAN, from network and cloud to service layers. The lab will also be responsible for post-deployment troubleshooting, life cycle management, continuous integration (CI), and continuous delivery (CD) of solutions.
NEC is committed to developing highly reliable, high-quality end-to-end solutions leveraging its expertise accumulated through its long-term experience in the telecom industry and proven capabilities to create, deliver and operate carrier-grade commercial products and networks across the globe. NEC's capabilities are further enhanced by the orchestration, digital OSS, and automation technologies of its subsidiary Netcracker, resulting in more efficient operations and faster time to market.
NEC aims to maximize the value of its open ecosystem by combining the competencies mentioned earlier with its advanced products and solutions and with best-of-breed products from various partners at the forefront of innovation. Initial partners include Altiostar, GigaTera, and MTI, as NEC plans to expand its ecosystem with a broader group of partners in possession of cutting-edge technologies to accelerate operators' commercial adoption of Open RAN.
"We are confident that our firm partnerships with the industry's best talents will enable us to advance the development of cutting-edge carrier-grade ecosystems at full throttle," said Kazuhiko Harasaki, Deputy General Manager, Service Provider Solutions Division, NEC Corporation. "NEC will take leadership in curating pre-validated models and facilitating commercial, multi-vendor Open RAN deployment as a viable alternative 5G network for operators."
