Nuage Networks is partnering with Telefónica Spain to transform its data centre network infrastructure

The open, elastic and highly secure data centre network infrastructure, will dramatically expand the agility, scale and efficiency of its cloud-based services.

"To meet the rapidly emerging business requirements for agility and on-demand deployments, we moved aggressively to build our business connectivity services around a new cloud-based architecture. Nuage Networks provided us with a highly scalable SDN architecture that could support all our services across all our regions without disruption. We are confident our customers will significantly improve their businesses with these new cloud-based services," Joaquín Mata, director of operations, network and IT at Telefónica España.

The Nuage Networks VCS solution allows Telefónica to accelerate the provisioning of new customers, applications and networks with cloud-scale efficiency. The solution automatically establishes networking configurations, with quality of service (QoS) and security policies. It also enables zero-touch, policy-based network automation of applications running on any infrastructure, whether virtual machines, containers or bare-metal servers. The solution is OpenStack compliant and fully certified with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack platform.

Sunil Khandekar, founder and chief executive officer of Nuage Networks from Nokia, said: "We worked closely with Telefónica to assure the Nuage Networks SDN solutions address the requirements of its entire network infrastructure from the data center to remote WAN sites around the globe. Enterprise customers who need more flexibility and agility to quickly propel themselves into new markets can get it through trusted providers like Telefónica."

Additionally Nuage Networks will enable hybrid cloud seamless interconnection between Private DC, Telefónica SDDC and Public Clouds, where Telefónica's customers require solutions to address the needs of cloud-based applications such as cloud bursting, optimizing latency, virtualized networking and routing services.
