Telefónica and Huawei tie up to target SMEs

Telefónica’s business solutions unit has announced a tie up with Huawei for the development of a Network Service Platform and CloudVPN for enterprises.

The aim of the solution will be to create a simple form of private network between the business’ different premises, geared towards SMEs who many not have the in-house expertise to build such a proposition themselves or the capital to even think about it.

“Telefónica has a long tradition in supporting SMEs,” said Hugo de los Santos, Director Global B2B Products & Services at Telefónica. “Now that Digitalisation is transforming everything at an unparalleled speed we want to keep playing a key role supporting their digital transformation.”

“Huawei CloudEPN solution aims to help carriers provide SDN based agile and on-demand enterprise interconnection services for customers, meeting requirements of rapid innovations and fast changes of enterprise demands,” said Kevin Hu, President of Huawei Network Product Line. “The solution helps carriers grasp opportunities during enterprises’ B2B digital transformation, continuously increase B2B market revenue and achieve business success.”

The first deployment of the solution will take place in Argentina and Chile, before expanding to other markets in LATAM and Europe. The solution also comes with embedded security features to offer peace of mind to anyone concerned about the flow of sensitive information between HQ and remote users. The pair added customers will have full service deployment control and the development of a web portal means customers will be able to monitor, manage and adjust their services in real time.
