Telefonica Business Solutions, a leading provider of a wide range of integrated communication solutions for the B2B market, has selected Cisco’s NSO (Network Services Orchestrator), enabled by Tail-f, for automating and configuring its IP infrastructure and business customer premises equipment.
Cisco claims that the NSO solution will significantly enhance the automation, agility and reliability of Telefonica’s network, while accelerating new service delivery from months to minutes with automated, on-demand service provisioning. Furthermore, it will allow faster time to market for new B2B services, increasing efficiency and service quality for its global customers.
With a network serving more than 320 million customers with service reach in 130 countries, including consumers, SMEs and several of the world’s top enterprises and wholesale carriers, Telefonica is making a strategic decision to digitize its network operations by transitioning from manual, workflow-based provisioning to YANG-based DevOps (Development & Operations) service modeling.
Cisco claims that its NSO can simplify their network operations by automating the end-to-end service lifecycle and reducing manual configuration steps by up to 90 percent.
