TOKYO, Feb 19, 2024 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701), a leading global IT and network transformation services provider, announced today that it will enhance the NEC Value Added Network Solution Suite by adding open enterprise network solutions to its portfolio, including AI-enabled network and security solutions to accelerate businesses' digital transformation (DX) and enable telecom monetization. Moreover, in collaboration with its strategic global partners, NEC will provide holistic network solutions and services - including award-winning telecom B2B/enterprise network solutions - to support businesses in achieving sustainable growth through innovation.

Currently, the business landscape is marked by an unprecedented transition from traditional non-automated workstyles to digitalized ones, and enterprises must harness the possibilities of digital and artificial intelligence to gain an edge. As part of this, they must transform their networks by improving capacity, security, and operational efficiency. However, infrastructure transformation is not easy since each business has unique objectives, requiring corresponding infrastructure adjustments. For example, businesses must determine whether to use public or hybrid clouds, or whether to utilize centralized or edge architecture.

To meet the emerging challenges of enterprises, NEC has added open enterprise network solutions to its Value Added Network Solution Suite portfolio, which is helping businesses to optimize their ROI through best-of-breed solutions and trusted advanced services that meet diverse enterprise needs. These services are offered by NEC Transport Network Centers of Excellence in EMEA, LATAM and APAC, which enhance customer experiences in their regions and collectively boast over 500 engineers worldwide, whose best practices provide a wide range of services, from business planning consultation and engineering services, to managed services offering integrated support for enterprise success.

With a trusted service record, the NEC Value Added Network Solution Suite has already been successfully deployed by global Tier-1 Telecoms. With this new enhancement for enterprise network solutions, NEC is poised to further accelerate support for digital transformation in the era beyond 5G, building on its expertise, and delivering innovative solutions and services for the unique challenges of modern businesses.
