The Beijing branch of China Telecom has deployed Huawei's software-defined networking solution in its Internet Data Center (IDC) for northern China. The SDN installation is supporting a range of new IDC services, such as “DC-one” for virtual resource services, “DC-care” for assurance services, “DC-keeper” for auxiliary services like detailed traffic reporting, and DC-private for customized services.
The companies said the SDN architecture enables a service-centric IDC that effectively meets service customization requirements of tenants, improves IDC resource utilization and operations, and optimizes network O&M efficiency.
Huawei's SDN solution for Beijing Telecom's IDC comprises key components such as the smart network controller (SNC), powered by a carrier-grade SDN control algorithm (Flow Engine) and orchestrator NetMatrix.
"We are glad to cooperate with Huawei in the SDN field and successfully commercialize the technology. We hope these new services can create more value for our customers," said Xu Hong, the Vice GM of Beijing Telecom.
