The Ooredoo group has teamed up with Cisco to set its roadmap for Network Function Virtualization (NFV) deployments and to deliver Virtual Managed Services (VMS) to the Qatar market. With Cisco Virtual Managed Services, Ooredoo will be able to offer its customers automated cloud-based services, enabling them to outsource the management of their network and IT services to a trusted technology partner.

Ooredoo will trial the Cisco Cloud VPN, part of the Cisco VMS portfolio, which offers highly secure business connectivity and routing for site-to-site, remote access, and Internet gateway applications. Cisco said that its ETSI-based Cloud VPN delivers on the promise of automation and simplification for managed services and utilizes Cisco's best-in-class portfolio of enterprise virtualized networking functions (VNFs).

Waleed Al Sayed, Chief Executive Officer, Ooredoo Qatar
Ooredoo continues to deliver cutting-edge technologies to Qatar in our role as an IT innovation engine for our nation. Supporting NFV and Virtual Managed Services with Cisco will provide another important resource for Ooredoo to increase operational efficiency and drive the growth of the knowledge-based economy.

Kit Beall, vice president, service provider segment, cloud and managed services at Cisco
We are pleased to work closely with Ooredoo on their transition to NFV and cloud-based services. We are committed in helping Ooredoo transform their network and prepare their business for the future.
