Nokia nabs major SDN build contract with China Mobile

Nokia’s Nuage Networks has been chosen by China Mobile Software Technical Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Mobile, as the SDN platform for the operator’s public and private enterprise cloud services.

According to Nokia, the platform is based on the Nuage Networks virtualised services infrastructure, and includes cloud implementations on virtual machines, Kubernetes containers and OpenStack Ironic-based bare metal servers.

In a bid to address rising demand for cloud services among its enterprise customers, China Mobile is expanding its software-defined networking support for new private and public cloud services, added Nokia.

“In the past two years, Nokia Shanghai Bell, Nokia’s joint venture in China, helped deploy the Nuage Networks VSP solution to deliver China Mobile’s public and private cloud services in 10 data centers, the largest deployment containing over 1,000 servers,” it said.

“Having a strong relationship with CMCC based on the work we’ve already done with them, we were especially pleased to be chosen to continue with this important project,” said Nuage Networks CEO Sunil Khandekar. “The Nuage Networks service allows CMCC to offer some very dynamic, high performing and attractive cloud services for their customers.”
