Vodafone Idea is deploying an automated multicloud network across the country to enable an unmatched experience for its retail and enterprise customers.

The Operator has collaborated with Cisco to deploy a distributed multicloud architecture based on Cisco Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI). This automated solution has enabled a nationwide deployment in record time. It has fast-tracked Vodafone Idea’s Data Core Network rollout, increased capacities, and helped reduce costs as Cloud implementation is now done in just 72 hours. The platform being built is ready to host both IT and Network applications on one cloud.

As Vodafone Idea modernizes its network to make it more efficient and future proof, the agile, smart, and efficient platform will help the operator adapt to changing customer preferences, and allow for the continued launch of innovative use cases. In the face of unpredictable data growth, agility means getting adequate capacity on line, where needed, in time.

Vodafone Idea’s automated cloud scale architecture is synchronized across applications, operating systems, infrastructure, and an underlying IP-MPLS core. 

Vishant Vora, CTO, Vodafone Idea
Building a robust, secure and future proof network infrastructure based on cloud is a key component of the transformation. The distributed cloud architecture will enable edge and fog computing services for our customers in both the enterprise and consumer spaces.

Kishen Mangat, VP and GM, Mobility Business Group, Cisco
This project furthers Cisco’s position as a trusted partner at Vodafone Idea Limited India for cloud, virtualization, data center and mobile packet core. Our work together has helped to advance Vodafone Idea Limited rapidly growing data traffic over many years, and we look forward to our future networking transformation.
