”Savings, flexibility, scalability and virtually no time-to-market are just some of the benefits of our orchestration solutions that will help you win the race to 5G.
By 2025, more than 75 billion devices will be connected to mobile networks on a global scale (and our download speeds will round 1GB/s.) Furthermore, by 2028, the global 5G technology market value is projected to reach US$250 billion. This scenario looks nothing but profitable for telecommunication providers; we at ECT are ready to boost you forward into this new era of commercial opportunity.
We recently invested in a company-wide restructure that allows us to react faster to our customers’ needs with the implementation of agile methodologies and virtualized solutions to the likes of Deutsche Telekom, KPN and Proximus. We can therefore say that, with 5G technology around the corner, we have been preparing to provide ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) NFV architecture-compliant solutions for some time.
As a result of that preparation, we are now capable of integrating with Nokia CloudBand Application Manager (CBAM), while many different orchestrator options will follow soon in order to satisfy the needs of our customers. Evolution is something we take seriously here at ECT.

A strategy for scalable innovation deployment
“For our partners, the benefits of ECT’s NFV solutions are, among many others, savings, flexibility, scalability and virtually no time-to-market,” says Tahir Masood, ECT’s Chief Network Architect. “If a customer wants to add and deploy a new feature, there is no longer a need for them to buy new vendor-locked hardware products.” Needless to say, it all reflects on your costs and reduces your capex.
As proprietary hardware disappears and capital expenses decrease, all the collateral hassle of having to deal with physical devices in a network disappears too. With VNF, customers can almost instantly create new virtual machines responsible for the functions required by their systems instead of having to wait weeks or months for a provider to deliver new hardware that would do the same thing.
Further to that, its scalability allows customers to use the exact amount of resources a system requires without requiring them to store, power, maintain and pay for idle machines just in case capacity crosses the upper-limit and causes connection issues through too many concurrent users. When a system’s needs grow, the whole solution upscales. If the needs reduce, the solution downscales. NFV is paving the way for simple and easy 5G.

The Road to 5G
The predicted speed of future devices using 5G is more than 1Gbps – 1,000 times greater than the current speed of 4G.
Prepare to dominate a world powered by 5G
“For the last months, we have been working hard on making our VNF compliant with the ETSI standard,” says Walter Rott, ECT’s Chief Technology Officer for Telecommunications Networks, “and now we are really proud of being able to offer our VNF solution. ECT’s customers can now evolve to the cloud and virtualize previously dedicated hardware in a single platform, increasing reliability, automation and efficiency, while reducing their capex and getting ready for a seamless transition to 5G cloud deployments.”
ECT Network Functions Virtualization is being implemented with Nokia CBAM, however we are also planning integration with other orchestrators like OSM or Huawei FusionSphere OpenStack. If you would like more information regarding NFV or any of our other products, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us here. We will be glad to help you.
