Nuage Networks SD-WAN Solutions for Telefónica PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 17 May 2017 05:47


Nuage Networks has a partnership with Telefónica Group that will deliver automated end-to-end services leveraging next-generation cloud technology to several thousand global enterprise customers.

Specifically, Telefónica selected Nuage Networks as its provider for next-generation Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) services based on Nuage Networks Virtualized Network Services (VNS). SD-WAN services are becoming a strategic area of differentiation for large telecommunications and service providers looking to augment existing MPLS VPN and hybrid WAN offerings to enterprises with cloud-ready capabilities.

A key part of Telefónica Group's Telco cloud vision is to offer enterprises the ability to easily order, customize and configure value-added services through a self-service portal for on-demand delivery. Organizations worldwide gain a single platform for simplified networking of their branch offices, and for the seamless connection to public cloud services or any value-added service offered by Telefónica from their datacenters. Thanks to Nuage Networks' VNS technology, Telefónica can leverage its ultra-broadband global network and quality of service to make it easily consumable by enterprises in a cloud-friendly manner.

With Telefónica, the Nuage Networks technology and value proposition is reaching a large enterprise market across multiple regions.

The new SD-WAN service from Telefónica is expected to be available in second half of 2017 in Spain, and will be followed by Telefónica Business Services (International) and other subsidiaries. Telefónica is integrating the Nuage Networks SD-WAN solution with new full-stack approach across the Group and will develop a superb customized self portal for user-driven service customization and fulfillment, which will accelerate deployment and bring individual sites online while reducing operational overhead at the customer site.

Javier Gavilán, Technology Director at Telefónica Global CTO, said: "To meet rapidly emerging business requirements for agility and on-demand deployments, we firmly moved to build our business connectivity services around a new Telco cloud-based architecture. Nuage Networks provided us with a highly scalable SD-WAN architecture that could support all our services across all our regions without disruption. We are confident our customers will be pleased with these new cloud-based services."  

Sunil Khandekar, founder and chief executive officer of Nuage Networks from Nokia, said: "The IT, communications and service demands of today's enterprises are much higher than just a few years ago. Companies require new cloud technologies to support them while simplifying traditional service models. We worked closely with Telefónica to ensure the Nuage Networks' VNS solution addresses their new SD-WAN service requirements around the globe. Enterprise customers who need more flexibility and agility to adapt to rapidly changing business needs can get it through a trusted provider like Telefónica."
