Software-Defined Connected Infrastructure
The 'FUJITSU Intelligent Networking and Computing Architecture' is a new architecture for next-generation ICT infrastructure. Fujitsu plans to release products that will conform to this architecture across various areas of technology.
Toward virtualized and distributed computing
The future of ICT is moving toward virtualized and distributed computing, where computing nodes are connected via networks and controlled by intelligent software. An autonomous management function will soon be embedded in this ICT environment, which will grow with businesses and operate reliably throughout the lifecycle. Fujitsu calls this future ICT Software-Defined Connected Infrastructure (SDCI). To realize SDCI, Fujitsu has mapped out its next-generation architecture, Fujitsu Intelligent Networking and Computing Architecture (FINCA), and continues to research and develop related technologies.
New network products through FINCA technologies
Leveraging virtualization technology in datacenters, networking functions can now be virtualized in a standard server and integrated with Software-Defined Network (SDN) technologies. This is known as Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). NFV is gaining momentum as it is not only flexible in providing the best connection between cloud and users, but it is also an enabler of ‘Edge Computing’ and ‘Fog Computing’ which are important components of the IoT. FINCA-based products have already contributed to enhancing our customers’ ICT infrastructure. For instance, PRIMEFLEX realizes hybrid IT, combining clouds and on-premise environments. Fujitsu’s Virtuora network product range enables a flexible wide area network and new NFV products are also slated for release.
To be competitive, businesses must become more agile. Fujitsu incorporates software-defined technologies into its PRIMEFLEX and NFV products such as the Virtuora line-up. We continue to develop new technologies that make advanced ICT solutions more efficient and responsive to business requirements.

- Global WAN Services
Fujitsu Wide Area Network (WAN) provides global connectivity. This includes Managed WAN, Managed Virtual Private Networks, Managed Wavelength and Managed Firewall Services together with Campus LAN Distributed LAN services.
The penetration of broadband networks has led to an increase of digitalized data flowing through networks. As a result, a variety of services are now provided over networks, such as IP telephony and video distribution services. As next-generation networks become increasingly important to society, network infrastructure has become large and complex. This has created a host of crucial issues for service providers. Issues include network operation and management and problem resolution methods, in addition to quality assurance for network services and infrastructure operation and management. To solve these issues, Fujitsu provides network service management software that enables operation and management and quality assurance for next-generation networks.
