NXP completes virtualization networking trial with CMCC
NXP Semiconductors completed virtualization networking trial with China Mobile Communications Corporation (CMCC), achieving an initial success in the area of network function virtualization (NFV) collaboration.
NXP has deployed a vCPE solution based on ARM architecture processors as part of the China Mobile Cloud platform.
NXP said its vCPE solution provided hardware, virtualization and application software solutions for the China Mobile Virtualization network project. Powered by NXP 64-bit ARM V8 processor LS1043A with 4 ARM V8 cores, the vCPE integrates hardware acceleration engine for use in network packet analysis, data encryption/decryption and traffic management and ingress traffic classification and distribution.
"We are very pleased with the initial success of the NXP and China Mobile collaboration on network function virtualization,” said Tareq Bustami, NXP Senior Vice President and General Manager of Digital Networking. “Our vCPE solution demonstrates the advantages of NXP’s broad product portfolio, demonstrated security technologies, superior efficiency, advanced virtualization support and a wealth of processor peripherals, all providing unmatched stability. We look forward to NXP and China Mobile cooperating more broadly and deeply in edge computing application areas based on the vCPE solution, helping to meet the growing market for high-performance solutions.”
