Ericsson launches Data Center Build and Optimization offering
- Ericsson enters the market for data centers, enables telecom operators to offer cloud services for their enterprise customers
- Operators ideally positioned to offer high quality, high security and high availability cloud services to enterprises
- With an optimized cloud strategy, a telco enterprise customer can lower its IT operating expenditure
As part of the recently announced Network-enabled Cloud concept, Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) is launching its new offering for building and optimizing data centers at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. This is a prioritized area for telecom operators looking to offer public cloud-based services for their enterprise customers. Ericsson will demonstrate a new concept for planning, designing and implementing data centers and showcase a complete cloud computing platform, including cloud management and security.
Ericsson's Data Center Build and Data Center Optimization offering will meet increased demand for cloud-based services as enterprises seek to become increasingly mobile. With this offering, Ericsson enters the market for data centers and strengthens its position as an ICT player.
Paolo Colella, Head of Consulting and Systems Integration at Ericsson, says: "Operators are ideally positioned to offer high quality, high security and high availability cloud services to enterprises. We bring telecom-grade thinking to the cloud space, focusing both on availability and security of the services, as well as cost and efficiency gains for enterprise customers. And, in addition, cloud services bring new business opportunities for the telecom operators.
"Building a cloud solution will include a number of technological approaches. Within Ericsson's services organization, we will contribute with our key competence, looking at all of the aspects of the network architecture and how to build, optimize and operate the cloud."
Ericsson's cloud approach - from a Consulting and Systems Integration perspective - ranges from building new data centers to providing solutions for operators through a consolidation, modernization and standardization of existing IT environments.
With an optimized cloud strategy, an enterprise customer can lower its IT operating expenditure thanks to reduced need for software licenses, floor space and cooling. In addition, cloud services and access to the enterprise IT environment via fixed and mobile internet brings efficiency gains for the organization.
Colella continues: "Ericsson's global scale and skill, coupled with our experience in delivering more than 1,300 systems integration projects every year and expertise in mobile and fixed connectivity, means we can provide operators with new levels of flexibility and efficiency in their IT systems."
