NEC has collaborated with Chinese software developer and provider Dalian Hi-Think Computer Technology (DHC) for promoting software-defined networking (SDN) business in China.

Through this collaboration, DHC has already introduced NEC's SDN products at its data center, and will launch a cloud service that utilizes SDN technology later this month.

In order to link DHC's customer base and technological capabilities with NEC's SDN-related know-how, the companies will establish the DHC-NEC SDN Union Innovation Center.

The center will utilize the strengths of both companies to provide comprehensive support for the design, construction, operational management and maintenance of SDN services to meet the needs of customers.

Moreover, they will make use of the center to expand sales of SDN-supportive products for the Chinese market, the companies said.
