Telefonica Picks Cisco’s Network Services Orchestrator

Telefonica Business Solutions has selected Cisco’s NSO (Network Services Orchestrator), enabled by Tail-f, for automating and configuring its IP infrastructure and business customer premises equipment. Financial terms were not disclosed.

With Cisco's NSO, Telefonica will be transitioning from manual, workflow-based provisioning to YANG-based DevOps (Development & Operations) service modeling.  The solution provides a highly efficient abstraction layer between network services and the underlying infrastructure components.

Pedro López, Telefonica Business Solutions’ B2B Customer Operations Director: “Telefonica is always seeking to serve more efficiently its worldwide customers. With Cisco NSO we get the agility to design, refine and repackage network devices and services at the speed of software through standards-based modeling and end-to-end zero-touch automation, responding dynamically to our customer demands and dramatically cutting service delivery cost and time.”

“We are very pleased Telefonica selected Cisco as its primary partner to digitize its network operations, which will have a profound and positive impact on its customer base of more than 300 million businesses. Telefonica’s visionary decision to embrace YANG-based, DevOps service modeling will allow it to greatly simplify network operations, while building the foundation to deliver exciting new revenue-generating experiences to its customers,” stated Scot Gardner, vice-president, Service Provider EMEAR at Cisco.
