MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the unified communications (UC) infrastructure market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes NEC with the 2014 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation Leadership. NEC has leveraged leading-edge, software-defined networking (SDN) technology and integrated it across its UC and infrastructure product lines to deliver an optimized Software Defined Communications (SDC) experience for customers.

NEC is moving toward a self-aware UC infrastructure by making its own UC platforms ProgrammableFlow-aware and interoperable. The ProgrammableFlow networking suite offers NEC's UNIVERGE portfolio of enterprise voice, video and data communications solutions an optimized and adaptable network infrastructure in which to operate. This empowered UNIVERGE 3C is a fully distributed, data center-ready, virtualized UC solution platform and fits well into the architecture of the OpenFlow-based ProgrammableFlow SDN solution.

"The level of integration NEC enables throughout its network, server, storage and enterprise communications product lines highlights the power of the technologies at play, as well as the application of those technologies to benefit customers," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Michael Brandenburg.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated uniqueness in developing technologies that impact both the functionality and the customer value of new products and applications.

Frost & Sullivan's Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for outstanding achievement in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and product development.
