Nokia Networks' Nuage Networks, today announced that China Mobile has selected its Virtualized Services Platform (VSP) to implement its first commercial public cloud project based on SDN (software defined networking) technology.

This deal strengthens the relationship between China Mobile and Nuage Networks, building on the deployment last year of Nuage Networks SDN technology in China Mobile's DevOps private cloud architecture. China Mobile has been rapidly expanding its large network of datacenters. 

According to Nuage Networks, China Mobile needed a highly scalable SDN solution with rich services for a massive deployment of approximately 2000 public cloud servers in Beijing and Guangzhou. Nuage Networks VSP enables China Mobile to virtualize its multi-tenant datacenter networks and establish connectivity among computing resources while at the same time providing more features to customers. As a result, CMCC can implement new datacenters ten times faster than with physical deployments, and reduce operating expenses by up to 50%.

Nuage Networks said that the VSP Solution enables high-performance, high-stability distributed SDN and policy-based automation for cloud deployments. It is also deployable on hybrid cloud and heterogeneous environments while operating seamlessly with open-source cloud management systems, hypervisors, and leading-edge software and hardware.

In addition, the datacenter and cloud networking framework of the VSP, Virtualized Cloud Services (VCS), automates the configuration, management and optimization of virtual networks, including security services that provide tenant isolation and access controls to individual applications and workloads.

Yu Xiaohan, Head of Customer Business Team, China Mobile at Nokia Network China
The successful track record of Nuage Networks' VSP in major operators' clouds around the world, and our philosophy of building open cloud environments that avoid customer lock-in, were both instrumental in our ability to win China Mobile's first open bid for its datacenter SDN.
