SDN/NFV ElasticNet White Paper

The strategies of Industry 4.0 and Internet+ are driving the massive upgrading of traditional industries, assisted by innovative internet technologies, to become more intelligent and scale customized. This kind of upgrading requires massive data to be collected and centralized to the cloud, and bring the whole society to the ”era of cloud”. In the era of cloud, it is necessary for the network resources to be allocated dynamically thus dramatically increasing the resource efficiency. The traditional telecom network is required to deal with more complicated and differentiated scenarios, to break through the vertically-divided rigid system and the ever-locked network elements.

Cloud Infrastructure

1.1Solution introduction
As a cloud infrastructure solution of CT/IT integration, ZTE cloud platform can build a cloud data center rapidly for customers with the technologies of virtualization, container, SDN, distributed storage technologies and automatic deployment tools, achieving global resource scheduling, elastic capacity scalability , flexible network control and carrier-grade quality. By providing bottom support for all kinds of application scenarios, ZTE cloud platform solution can meet the CT/IT users’ needs of real-time, on-demand and automation.
After conducting 360°inspection on the security threat of cloud system, ZTE defines an unified security framework and introduces a series of security mechanism covering physical security, infrastructure security, application security, management security and common security.
ZTE cloud platform provides global unified maintenance and service oriented intelligent operation, making customer's resource management more efficient, more convenient to maintain and their networks more flexible, to help customer easily manage the coming more complicated network architecture and get the leading position in the fierce competition.


ZTE cloud platform solution has following highlighted features:
●Open and Compatible: based on open architecture of OpenStack; widely compatible with 3rd party vendors’ hardware and software and win-win cooperation to build sustainable industry ecosystem.

Cloud Application

ZTE cloud core network realizes the hardware-software decoupling by the virtualization of various functions of the core network elements. Specifically speaking, software modules are no longer associated with dedicated hardware, but loaded and run on the virtual machines/containers.
After the virtualization of core network functions, the network element capacity and the network type can be deployed flexibly and adjusted dynamically according to diversified needs, so as to improve the network flexibility and agility. In order to further improve the performance of virtual network’s media interface, the media interface forwarding function has been departed, and SDN switches are used to realize the high-effective forwarding of the media stream and the nearest distributed deployment of the forwarding function.
ZTE cloud core network can be deployed quickly. It provides scalable and elastic environment, enhancing the security and the regulatory compliance. Also, it realizes fast service innovation by the on-demand open service architecture, shortening the new business deployment cycle significantly and saving the operator's costs.
ZTE cloud core network already supports the virtualization of all the core network elements. In the year of 2016, all the network elements of ZTE cloud core network have been commercially used in Belarus in a large scale, including vEPC/vUDC/vCS/vIMS. This is the first full-NE commercial virtualized core network in the industry.
