Ericsson has been selected by XL Axiata, the third largest operator in Indonesia for the deployment its full stack cloud solution, including the Ericsson Hyperscale Datacenter System 8000, and virtual network functions (VNFs) as part of XL Axiata's cloud evolution and realization of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). As part of the first phase of the transformation, Ericsson Service Aware Policy Controller (SAPC) and Traffic Monitoring and Analysis (TMA) VNFs will also be deployed.

According to Ericsson, common management of the VNFs will be enabled by the Ericsson Network Manager, which supports management of both physical and virtual network functions, offers a common view of network resources and services across multiple network technologies, and provides lifecycle management for VNFs. The solution offers open NFV architecture and fulfils XL Axiata's needs for a standardized multivendor virtualization environment that will enable the operator to bring new services to market faster. 

Dian Siswarini, President Director, XL Axiata
Through this hyperscale cloud initiative with Ericsson, we look forward to putting NFV and cloud to practical use. We will accelerate the delivery of innovative services by exposing network assets, while improving efficiency and reducing risk in how networks are built and operated to meet the needs of the future.

Thomas Jul, Head of Ericsson Indonesia and Timor Leste
This is an important milestone in our long standing partnership with XL Axiata, marking a significant step in the cloud evolution we are working together to realize for XL Axiata.
