Market consolidation, workload fluctuations, and new use cases are driving the need for software with edge-native characteristics that is built for constrained hardware environments, architectural flexibility and ease of management.
Operators, telecom equipment manufacturers, and virtual network function (VNF) vendors can now benefit from extended multi-architecture specifications and professional services available with the Enea NFV Lab infrastructure. This is particularly interesting to spur product and service innovation around uCPE, SD-WAN, and 5G.
“The latest upgrades to the Enea NFV Lab provide customers and partners with even more benefits from our leading edge expertise, our ecosystem of partners, and a strong backbone of engineers across Europe, North America and Asia”, said Thibaut Bechetoille, SVP NFV Business Unit, Enea.
