The company is looking to use the facilities to accelerate the adoption of the networking technologies among telecommunications vendors.

Chinese tech giant Huawei Technologies is building a lab that officials said will help fuel the development and adoption by telecommunications companies of network-functions virtualization and software-defined networking technologies.

Huawei officials announced the construction of the Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Open Lab Nov. 24, saying the center will help ensure that solutions and carrier-grade infrastructures will be compatible with the open standards being created by the two-month-old Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV) project, of which Huawei is one of 17 founding members.

The vendor's NFV Open Lab will focus on the integration of NFV, software-defined networking (SDN) and cloud computing technologies in global telecom infrastructures, according to company officials. The lab will actually have three sites—in China, Germany and the United States—and will offer the virtualization capabilities, infrastructure, certifications and testing, integration and verification services to global telecoms, partners and other tech vendors.

NFV is a key part of Huawei's larger networking strategy, which also includes SDN. In February, the company was one of a number of vendors to use the Mobile World Congress 2014 show to talk about Huawei's Cloud Edge solutions, which is designed to leverage cloud-based mobile broadband network architectures to enable organizations to automate the management of entire networks, officials at the time said. It's aimed at helping network operators and service providers increase their mobile broadband opportunities, reduce network operation costs and more quickly spin out services for customers.

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
