NEC and Juniper Networks have expanded their global alliance relationship to deliver Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)-based solutions that allow service providers and enterprises to gain greater service agility to transform their business operations and help them lower overall costs.

The joint solutions combine the NEC Cloud System (OSS building model), which is an OpenStack-based cloud infrastructure with NetCracker's OSS/BSS systems, end-to-end service orchestration, systems integration capabilities and consulting options along with Juniper Networks' networking equipment and virtual network functions (VNFs) such as the Juniper Networks® vMX routing platform and vSRX Virtual Firewall.

The two companies are also working together to expand into new and developing markets, with a focus on Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. 

Atsuo Kawamura, senior vice president at NEC Corporation
As part of its commitment to delivering an open, best-in-breed NFV-based solution, NEC has led an SDN/NFV ecosystem program with more than 40 partners worldwide. 

Vince Molinaro, executive vice president and chief customer officer at Juniper Networks
By harnessing the power of automation and orchestration through SDN and NFV, and by supporting customers as they navigate their OSS transformation journey, Juniper and NEC are well-positioned to help customers capitalize on their IT and network investments.
