Telefónica Completes SDN/NFV Proof of Concept with NEC and NetCracker

Telefónica Business Solutions completed a Proof of Concept (PoC) based on SDN/NFV aimed at enabling new agile WAN for the business market.


Telefónica partnered with NEC and NetCracker on this PoC, combining software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) to provide more dynamic services on the worldwide WAN portfolio for enterprises. The PoC built an end-to-end solution for a virtualized VPN service over a virtual CPE. The solution includes a full orchestration and self-care stack from NEC/NetCracker, integrated with Telefónica’s virtual infrastructure solution and several virtual network functions, such as virtual SSL termination gateway, virtual firewall, etc. The orchestration solution successfully handled automated provisioning and the activation of both virtualized and traditional networks to establish virtualized VPN service and deploy the virtual network functions on the cloud.

NEC said the solution enabled the fully automated provisioning of a virtualized VPN service triggered by customers from a self-care portal, as well as fully automated value-added service provisioning and configuration.

“Given the increasing demand for virtualized solutions, we are excited to work with Telefónica and demonstrate the in-depth capabilities of our innovative SDN/NFV solutions,” said Frank DeTraglia, Chief Customer Officer at NetCracker. “We are pleased with the results of this PoC and look forward to expanding our relationship with Telefónica as the market and demand for virtualized technologies grow.”
