ZTE Cloud Infrastructure Solution

The ZTE Cloud Infrastructure Solution is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution which provides a carrier-class level of performance, reliability, and security. It includes the following three parts:

  1. A full series of ZTE-designed COTS servers, storage and network devices, matching with the actual customer’s performance requirements.
  2. A distributed cloud management platform, TECS, which controls and implements virtualization across common equipment to build cloud environments rapidly. It manages the resource sharing across physical DCs and provides unified operation and management for the whole network.
  3. The SDN Controller ZTE ZENIC, cooperating with TECS, to achieve intra-DC network virtualization and inter-DC L3/L2 interconnection. The solution provides to users an advanced and flexible control mode of the network.

The whole solution complies with the ETSI NFV standard in a high level of performance, reliability, and security that a carrier-class environment is requiring.
