Nuage Networks, Wednesday announced a partnership with Telefonica Group that will deliver automated end-to-end services leveraging next-generation cloud technology to several thousand global enterprise customers.

The new SD-WAN service from Telefonica is expected to be available in second half of 2017 in Spain, and will be followed by Telefonica Business Services (International) and other subsidiaries.

Specifically, Telefonica selected Nuage Networks as its provider for next-generation Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) services based on Nuage Networks Virtualized Network Services (VNS).

A key part of Telefonica Group's Telco cloud vision is to offer enterprises the ability to easily order, customize and configure value-added services through a self-service portal for on-demand delivery. Organizations worldwide gain a single platform for simplified networking of their branch offices, and for the seamless connection to public cloud services or any value-added service offered by Telefonica from their datacenters. 

With Telefonica, the Nuage Networks technology and value proposition is reaching a large enterprise market across multiple regions.

Telefonica is integrating the Nuage Networks SD-WAN solution with new full-stack approach across the Group and will develop a superb customized self portal for user-driven service customization and fulfillment, which will accelerate deployment and bring individual sites online while reducing operational overhead at the customer site.

Javier Gavilan, Technology Director, Telefonica Global CTO
To meet rapidly emerging business requirements for agility and on-demand deployments, we firmly moved to build our business connectivity services around a new Telco cloud-based architecture. 

Sunil Khandekar, founder and CEO, Nuage Networks, Nokia 
Companies require new cloud technologies to support them while simplifying traditional service models. We worked closely with Telefonica to ensure the Nuage Networks' VNS solution addresses their new SD-WAN service requirements around the globe.
