Solutions for Telecom
- Smart RAN
Business, Industrial and Social applications are increasingly reliant on robust and ubiquitous wireless IoT networks that can deliver both high-throughput and low latency (not only outdoors, but increasingly inside commercial and public buildings and homes with small cells). The market requires cohesive, integrated ecosystems, comprising RAN (Radio Access Networks), MEC (Mobile Edge Computing) and Cloud IoT platforms.
MEC adds ‘smarts’ to RAN, delivering economic and social value to end-users. Mobile operators and venue owners play an important role in this ecosystem – by providing a reliable wireless IoT network everywhere and MEC platforms that leverage this.
New revenue streams and social capital emerge from business, industrial and social use cases, orchestrated under a cohesive ecosystem. An open, secure, smart RAN can then be deployed and leveraged not only by traditional mobile operators but also by each industry vertical wherever it's required.

- TMS (Traffic Management Solution)
In order to survive in the increasingly fast-paced and ever changing environments of competitive markets, it is critical for communications service providers (CSP) around the globe to address the challenges of “increasing revenue”, “reducing CAPEX/OPEX” and “generating new revenue resources”.
Although the penetration of LTE/4G networks is increasing and a new tariff plan has been released, ARPU is not growing as expected. Moreover, increasing traffic is being countered by increasing network cost, as network architecture becomes more complicated with the emergence of new services such as the IoT and greater security needs.
NEC's Traffic Management Solution effectively overcome these issues and enable CSPs to thrive.
- Mobile Backhaul
iPASOLINK EX Advanced, one of the latest toolkits in NEC's PASOLINK series of Microwave Radios, realizes industry-leading 10Gbps single link capacity features with rapid, low cost, high capacity link deployment compared to optical fiber.
NEC's SDN and AI-based intelligent analytics and control function for embedding in network management systems (NMS) enable dynamic control of network performance, such as latency and QoE, and optimized allocation of network resources, which will be key features for future 5G transport networks.
- Network Data Monetization with Deep Learning
Communications service providers (CSP) today are increasingly looked at as data pipes, where revenues are channeled over-the-top (OTT) players, and ARPU fails to grow as expected. NEC provides , secure, real-time, scalable analysis of streaming data at 10 Gbps using patented machine learning technology that addresses critical CSP challenges for increasing revenues (even when HTTPS is used, cookies are blocked, or when experiencing just mobile appslication traffic). NEC's analytics contribute to the growth of CSP revenue through use cases that include monetization via advertisements, customer retention management, game changing plans, and customer threat protection.
