As an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) leader with more than 117 years of expertise, NEC has leveraged its adaptive solutions to enable individuals and enterprises across a wide spectrum of industries to achieve more flexible, secure and responsive work environments.
As an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) leader with more than 117 years of expertise, NEC enables new approaches to how Communications and IT services are delivered and managed through its field-tested expertise.
Combining innovative capability with a rich Communications and IT portfolio, NEC has provided individuals and enterprises with solutions that cover and enable the full spectrum of business processes for new and improved ways of conducting business.
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) architecture, based on NEC's ProgrammableFlow Controller, with UNIVERGE 3C Unified Communications
(U3C) solution, delivers simplified provisioning and dynamic, on demand, allocation of critical network resources. Using NEC's
ProgrammableFlow SDN controller, with U3C, QOS control, dynamic bandwidth allocation and network policy enforcement is now possible.
NEC ProgrammableFlow SDN controller automatically leverages UNIVERGE 3C call control information, supplied by the U3C SDM API and updates network
policy on the fly (future functionality).
While network orchestration controls policy provisioning, SDN application media is rerouted through a separate path in the network
based on link congestion (future functionality).
Emergency broadcasts and notifications, such as 911 and nurse call in healthcare environments, need to be prioritized, dynamically, over
lower priority network traffic. Dynamic allocation of network resources for critical communications is achieved by centralizing urgent
communications control while establishing end to end SDNtraffic prioritization.
Unexpected situations may challenge enterprise network and business processes stability. Direct information flow between U3C and ProgrammableFlow
controller enhance stability by providing a failover scenario in the SDN network as well as dynamic disaster recovery for unified communications
environments through resource reallocation in a disaster recovery state.
