Through this collaboration, DHC has already introduced NEC's SDN products at its data center, and as of April 2017, DHC will launch a cloud service that utilizes SDN technology.

This center will utilize the strengths of both companies to provide comprehensive support for the design, construction, operational management and maintenance of SDN services to meet the needs of customers.
