The companies’ aim to provide carriers with greater access to high-quality, innovative technologies and solutions
Huawei has entered into a strategic collaboration with Intel to deliver public cloud solutions for global telecoms carriers.
By combining Intel’s technology leadership with Huawei’s expertise in global information and communications technology solutions, the companies’ aim to provide carriers with greater access to high-quality, innovative technologies and solutions as they deliver carrier grade cloud services to enterprises and individual end-users announced the press release.
Telecoms carriers have extensive experience in delivering massive-scale and uninterrupted information services and have incomparable advantages in integrating broadband resources with/into data centers. Working together, Huawei and Intel plan to concentrate their efforts on developing scalable, optimized and cost-efficient hardware and software platforms for telecoms carriers to use as they deploy cloud-specific usage models across server, storage, network and infrastructure management technologies.
The companies will also drive performance improvements and security enhancements for Huawei’s FusionSphere running on Intel architecture, DPDK, and Open vSwitch. This will increase network virtualization performance of Huawei’s platforms, providing carriers with a robust cloud solution that improves efficiency and management, and lowers the total cost of operation (TCO) as they deploy cloud services and transform their traditional data centers into cloud data centers.
Zheng Yelai, President of Huawei’s IT Product Line, said, “We are honored to strengthen our partnership with Intel, the world leader in computing. By working together, we aim to provide strong support for the upcoming business transformation among carriers across the globe.”
Mr. Jason Waxman, Vice President and General Manager, Cloud Platforms Group, Intel Corporation, said, “Industry collaboration will foster innovation to deliver the latest Cloud technology to Telecommunications Service Providers. Huawei’s efforts with Intel to develop the next generation FusionSphere products using Intel® technology will enable service providers to deliver high performing, secure, and agile cloud services.”
