Madrid, 16th February 2018.- Telefónica’s wholesale business unit, Telefónica International Wholesale Services extends virtualization adoption with the deployment of 7 new Network Functions Hubs.  This will mean the ability to offer the best connectivity and the virtualization of several services and network functions, such as vRAS, vRouter and vFirewall.  These 7 new nodes (Network Functions Hubs) have been deployed in the Americas, Europe and Asia during 2017.

During the first stage of deployment, nodes are already up and running in several main cities: Mexico City, Miami, Boca Raton, London, Madrid, Sao Paulo and Hong Kong, with further deployment planned for 2018.

Virtualization is already an essential part of Telefónica’s networks, supporting the construction of a more flexible, agile and scalable network through the evolution towards the softwarization of the different elements and layers of the network.

Moving from vertical architectures built over many networks and technologies with an unnecessary geographical spread, to simple and scalable architecture with shared infrastructure, Telefónica International Wholesale Services can deliver the best quality to its customers.

In today’s digital world, customers want to be permanently connected, anywhere and from any device, with the highest quality and the very best experience. To meet this demand, since 2012, Telefónica has invested heavily in the development of its fixed and mobile networks, building networks for the future to ensure that the network is fit for purpose.

This investment means Telefónica offers a fully virtualized network system, which enables its customers to access a virtualized platform, available worldwide, in order to extend their own infrastructure and products globally.
