China Mobile Cloud has selected Nokia to provide its Nuage Networks end-to-end SDN solution for nationwide deployment of a public cloud service.
The cloud unit of China Mobile has worked with Nokia since 2015, and runs both public and private cloud services using the Nuage SDN solution. The companies have cooperated on developing features and improving system architecture to meet growing demand for cloud service.
Nokia’s Nuage Networks Virtualized Cloud Services (VCS) solution will provide advanced network automation across networks and clouds of all sizes, allowing customers to build fully isolated and secure virtual private clouds (VPCs) that connect to other VPCs, the internet, and enterprise data centers.
The solution can support a massive number of virtual machines (VM) and bare metal services (BM) in the same network with full policy control. The flexible architecture also allows direct connectivity between the end points without going through gateways, which can quickly become bottlenecks in a cloud environment.
Sunil Khandekar, CEO of Nokia’s Nuage Networks, said: “We developed the network solution together with customers to ensure it was suitable for China Mobile Cloud’s expansion of its public cloud application. By deploying our SDN solution, China Mobile Cloud’s customers will have the ability to create highly secure and dynamic virtual networks.”
