Nokia's Nuage Networks VSP solution will be deployed by Bharti Airtel, India's leading telecommunications services provider, in 15 circles (service areas) in the northern and southern part of the country to automate its data center networks.

Once deployed, the Nuage Networks VSP solution will allow Airtel to provide new and exciting services, including Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), ensuring customer delight. 

India has been recording unprecedented growth in data and this requires that service providers, like Airtel, increase the number of data centers. Further, they need to take the data centers closer to their subscribers to meet capacity demand and deliver best-in-class user experience. This is also driven by the need to prepare the networks for new technologies like 5G and Internet of Things (IoT).

Nuage Networks VSP is the critical component in Nokia's end-to-end Software Defined Networking (SDN) solution that enables automation across the data center and transport networks. It helps by adding agility and flexibility to networks, making them more responsive.

Randeep Sekhon, CTO, Bharti Airtel
The upcoming technologies, including 5G and IoT, demand that we move the data centers closer to our customers, so we are able to provide ultra-high speeds and extremely low latency. This is crucial for a number of new-age use cases such as Virtual Reality, autonomous driving and remote surgery.

Sanjay Malik, Head of India Market, Nokia
Nokia's Nuage Networks products and solutions have emerged as a clear leader in helping service providers in their journey to leverage virtualization and SDN for better operational efficiency and quality of experience.
