Vodafone Group, the world's second-largest mobile operator with close to 444 million customers, has included Juniper Networks' Contrail Networking software-defined networking (SDN) solution to its global approved vendor list.
According to Juniper Networks, Contrail Networking is a simple, open and agile SDN solution that automates and orchestrates the creation of highly scalable virtual networks. These virtual networks enable operators, such as Vodafone, to harness the power of the cloud for new services, increased business agility and revenue growth.
In its booth at Mobile World Congress, Juniper is hosting a presentation of VPN+, a showcase for Vodafone's multi-vendor mobile VPN services portfolio and an integral part of Vodafone Ocean Transformation. VPN+ use cases on show include SD-WAN, service chaining, on-demand services (e.g. large-scale data back-up), virtual cloud-hosted services, and universal, virtualized Customer Premises Equipment (CPE). All VPN+ services are designed to be customer-portal driven, enabling users to select, change and provision services with a mouse-click, said Juniper Networks.
