NEC Corporation and NEC Corporation of America Jointly Showcase New Carrier-Class Services at NXTcomm08; Highlighting the Integration of Networking and Information Technology.

Demonstrations Focus on Delivering Next-Generation Network Services to Speed New Operator Revenue Streams

IRVING, Texas Irving (pronounced 'er-ving') is a city located in the U.S. state of Texas within Dallas County. According to the 2000 U.S. Census, the city population was 191,615; the 2006 estimate was 201,927 according to the North Central Texas Council of Governments, and 196,084 according to  -- At booth SU4520 at NXTcomm08, NEC (NEC Corporation, Tokyo,, An electronics conglomerate known in the U.S. for its monitors. In Japan, it had the lion's share of the PC market until the late 1990s (see PC 98).

NEC was founded in Tokyo in 1899 as Nippon Electric Company, Ltd.
 Corporation and NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading technology provider of network, IT and identity management solutions, will highlight the key applications and services that operators need to be made aware of - with respect to the roll-out of their Next-Generation Network (NGN (Next Generation Networks) An umbrella term for mixed voice and data networks running over the IP protocol. See IP Multimedia Subsystem. ) infrastructure.

At NXTcomm08, held June 16-19 in Las Vegas Las Vegas (läs vā`gəs), city (1990 pop. 258,295), seat of Clark co., S Nev.; inc. 1911. It is the largest city in Nevada and the center of one of the fastest-growing urban areas in the United States. , NEC will showcase an impressive line-up of carrier-grade infrastructure technologies - from optical infrastructure, digital microwave radio and thin client offerings to the recently launched Service Convergence Integrated Platform (SCI-P), also known as "Light IMS (1) See IP Multimedia Subsystem.

) and multimedia services to create new operator revenue streams.

NEC at NXTcomm08: Booth Overview

Services and the service delivery platforms that enable them are vital to operator growth, and as customer-centric delivery models evolve, operators will innovate and roll out new services to meet end-user demand. As such, NEC brings to market solutions - from IMS to optical infrastructure, service aggregation switches and thin client PC systems - that integrate across the network to comfortably enable operators to embrace the service delivery shift to IP. At NXTcomm08, NEC will highlight the following:

Service Delivery Platforms & NGN Services

With the launch of SCI-P, NEC brought to market a new converged multimedia and SIP-based solution to ensure a fast, easy, software-based migration path to an IMS-based NGN, which is vital in reducing the initial investment required for NGN services.

For network operators and services providers, IMS offers more options and tools for creating services and brings an open standardized approach to service creation. The result: Operators, service vendors and service operators will be able to bring new services to market in shorter cycles and with less investment.

At NXTcomm, NEC will discuss the critical applications and services that are gaining operator attention - from unified communications/centrex systems to home monitoring and security - as operators are now evaluating transition plans to an IMS framework; as they envision the revenue opportunities that can be attained through these new service delivery initiatives. As NEC has already delivered the world's first commercial IMS service, company executives will point to real-world scenarios for IMS migration and service delivery success.

IPTV (Internet Protocol TV) Also called "TV over IP," IPTV delivers scheduled TV programs and video-on-demand (VOD) via the IP protocol and digital streaming techniques used to watch video on the Internet.  is also a hotbed hotbed, low, glass-covered frame structure for starting tender plants. It differs from a cold frame only in that the soil is heated—either artificially as by underground electric wiring or steampipes, or naturally with partially fermented stable manure, which  services topic as it is the video delivery service that uses the IP network. With the addition of NGN, NEC can provide a variety of services, including high-grade video-on-demand (VoD) and value-added information services See Information Systems. . At NXTcomm, NEC will discuss its goal to expand services and meet operator demands for smooth migration from current services.

Optical Platforms

Operators' need for speed, capacity and reliability continues to escalate as digital information is transferred globally. NEC's Generation-Free[TM] SpectralWave[TM] suite of optical networking solutions, including the 4200-series of 40G and 100G ROADMs (Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer) and optical access GPON See PON.  (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) offerings, can enable carriers to deliver applications through multi-reach NGN fiber optic capabilities. As an example of the agility of the 4200, the optical networking solution was recently delivered to a major wireless operator's network.

These solutions coupled with NEC's SpectralWave MW0500-series, a Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing See CWDM.  (CWDM (Course WDM) An optical transmission method that is used for shorter distances than dense WDM (DWDM). Also known as "wide WDM," CWDM transmits fewer channels and uses wider spacing between the channels for distances up to 60 km. Wider spacing up to 25 nm, compared to 1. ) service delivery platform for metropolitan access and cable networks, provides an economical, eco-friendly and easy-to-deploy solution for a wide variety of managed wavelength service delivery needs, including storage-area networking, fiber channel relief, IP offloading and high-speed optical Ethernet transport. NEC's MW0500-series has been successfully deployed in carrier and cable networks around the world.

Mobile Backhaul Solutions

Broadband technologies have already started to encourage mobile operators to expand their current backhaul links in order to transport new services like mobile TV, video conferencing, interactive gaming and mass adoption of full Internet browsing and communications. As such, operators are challenged to increase mobile backhaul capacity to support these services.

NEC takes a new approach to Mobile Backhaul, combining its world-class NLite E and CX2200/100 multi-service transport gateway to effectively optimize available wireless resources; helping operators reduce mobile backhaul investments and deploy IP to the network edge. At NXTcomm, NEC shows how operators can best benefit from this model, in order to deliver new services.

Carrier-Class Personal Computing

NEC's NGN architecture creates an environment which accelerates the usage of thin client virtual PC systems. NEC's thin client and server system - the Virtual PC Center (VPCC VPCC Virginia Peninsula Chamber of Commerce
VPCC Vice President, Corporate Communications
VPCC Virginia Peninsula Coin Club (Hampton, VA)
VPCC Virtual Personal Computer Center (Thin Client Solution, with full PC functionality) 
) - is a complete virtual PC system that can run PC operating systems and application software on its servers in the data center. This is critical as the evolution to a more services-oriented approach becomes more prevalent in the operator network landscape.

Also featured at NXTcomm are NEC's Express5800 fault tolerant servers with hardware failover capability for continuous application availability while offering easy manageability for carrier-based application clients.
