Every day, more than three billion people around the globe rely on Enea’s technologies in a wide range of applications in multiple verticals – from Telecom and Automotive, to Medical and Avionics. Enea has offices in Europe, North America and Asia.

Arm and Enea have formed a strategic partnership, driving the development and adoption of virtualization software platforms to the Arm architecture. Enea also has well-established relationships with the major Arm licensees, and a strong commitment to work together with them and with Arm as a key contributor in the open-source community, developing and hardening optimal software solutions.

Enea is a top contributor to OPNFV with focus on enabling Arm as a hardware architecture. In 2015, Enea did the initial bring up of OPNFV for Arm hardware, and is one of the founding member of the OPNFV subproject Arm Band.

“As we enter a new era of network virtualization reaching the network edge, we are proud to be in a central position in the ecosystem around Arm-based NFV solutions. We bring NFV to Arm through our Enea NFV Edge solutions, providing optimized and deployment-ready NFV platforms for Core and Access nodes. To enable customers to evaluate NFV on Arm, we host the largest OPNFV Pharos lab for Arm servers in the world. Our NFV platform for Arm devices has gained a lot of momentum and shows that the Arm community is capable of delivering deployment ready solutions. Enea NFV Edge provides key components, leveraging the efficiency of the Arm architecture to lower both costs and power consumption for network functions.”
