The deployment of Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) comes as a major step toward Mobily’s evolution to full software-defined networking (SDN) that will accelerate application deployment and significantly reduce operational costs through policy-enabled workflow automation.
According to Cisco, the ACI will help accelerate Mobily’s time to revenue for new services, reduce total cost of ownership and strengthen the service provider’s ability to rapidly meet customers’ evolving needs. In addition to yielding significant cost savings, turning the manual process of provisioning and delivering applications into a simplified, automated process will also enhance security compliance and customer experience. Security policy automation will improve Mobily’s capability to isolate and protect workloads and allow security controls to be implemented closer to the data they are intended to protect.
Mobily is among the top telecom operators in the Middle East that provides wide international roaming Internet services through Fourth Generation (LTE) technology, in partnership with 124 operators in 56 countries.
