NEC Corporation, a leader in the integration of IT and network technologies, and Telefonica, a leading provider of integrated communication solutions, have announced the launch of Telefonica’s IP Network Fusion Project for digital network transformation in the Chilean market. NEC and infrastructure vendor partner Juniper Networks have partnered to implement the project with product solutions and system integration capabilities.
Telefonica designed the IP Fusion Network Project as a platform for incorporating services into a single network infrastructure, offering advanced communications services and transforming the customer experience for mobile, residential and business services.
This project requires network capacity to be expanded by implementing more than 170 nodes nationwide, guaranteeing the successful migration of customer services and assuring the maintenance of contracted service-level agreements (SLAs). Also, the project requires the implementation of an SDN solution that can control each of the devices from different providers in the network, as well as the design and operation of a seamless MPLS.
"NEC supports Telefonica Chile with a high level of network knowledge, work procedures and standards, helping to ensure the success of this project," said Shigeru Okuya, Senior Vice President, NEC Corporation. "Moreover, our global alliance with Juniper provides NEC with intimate knowledge of the Juniper platforms and technology that will be essential to the success of the Fusion project."
"This new network will provide Telefonica Chile customers with significant benefits, increasing the network capacity for meeting current and future demand for high-performance connectivity and simplifying the network for offering advanced services. The new IP Network Fusion will be fully prepared for enabling the development of 5G networks," said Cayetano Carbajo, Telefonica Director of Core, Transport and Platforms, Global Technology and Information Unit.
Several Juniper Networks technologies have been used to tackle project challenges: a homogeneous end-to-end platform based on Juniper MX-Series technology (MX2000, MX960), plus Juniper’s Node Slicing technology to make the network more efficient, aggregating HL1 with HL2, as well as HL2 with HL3 and disaggregating functions in HL4 in different entities (Business PE and BRAS), which significantly reduces the total amount of physical equipment that is required. Additionally, Juniper’s Network Implementation and Test Automation (NITA) tool enables automation of revision and programming changes during installations and migrations.
