Ooredoo Kuwait Picks VMware vCloud for NFV Platform

Ooredoo Kuwait has deployed both Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and IT applications on a single, unified cloud based on the VMware vCloud for NFV platform.

Specifically, VMware's professional services team partnered with Ooredoo Kuwait and their VNF vendor Huawei to design and deploy the VMware vCloud for NFV platform and virtual network functions into a test environment in less than three months.

VMware said its vCloud for NFV supported the seamless transfer of the virtualized Core IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) from test environment to Ooredoo's production IT environment, and enabled Ooredoo to conduct its first Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) call. The deployment of Ooredoo Kuwait's new Core NFV was fully automated, leveraging VMware vCloud Director and the VMware NSX network virtualization platform. The service is expected to go live in its production service network later this year.

VMware vCloud for NFV is an integrated network functions virtualization platform that combines VMware's production-proven virtualized compute, networking, storage and management solutions, to help ensure ongoing multi-vendor virtualized network function (VNF) support and maximize the cost and agility benefits of a shared network and IT infrastructure in a secured architecture. The Ooredoo platform uses VMware's policy-based resource allocation features to maintain application service level agreement (SLA) enforcement, and software-defined networking capabilities of the VMware NSX network virtualization platform to address NFV network scalability needs, multi-tenancy with microsegmentation, capacity on demand and QoS. VMware NSX is a main pillar in segregating tenants across Ooredoo's single converged private cloud.

"Ooredoo Kuwait's strategy aligns with VMware's One Cloud, Any Application, Any Device™ strategy, and we're delighted to be working with such forward-thinking customers who understand the value of a platform-based deployment strategy for NFV," said David Wright, vice president, Telecommunications and NFV Group, VMware.

Its newest market, Myanmar, has a population of around 53 million people and a relatively low mobile penetration rate of 27 percent, according to the Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technology. Within its first month of commercial operations in 2014, Ooredoo reached more than one million customers in the country.
