Nokia has announced that Nuage Networks SD-WAN 2.0 solution has been implemented by OmniClouds to improve and optimize cloud connectivity for enterprise customers throughout the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.
Nokia’s Nuage Networks will build and operate its SD-WAN 2.0 network, enabling OmniClouds to connect enterprise customers over a large coverage area – touching all key public cloud data centers with dedicated infrastructure in a flexible and cost-efficient way. With this deal, OmniClouds is focused on easing its customers’ migration to hybrid or full public cloud, with support ranging from consulting to connectivity services.
Paired with Nuage Networks’ SD-WAN 2.0 solution, OmniClouds customers will have a secure and scalable way to connect with data centers, private clouds, software-as-a-solution (SaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-solution (IaaS) providers.
OmniClouds will not only provide full cloud connectivity, but will also use Nuage Networks’ SD-WAN 2.0 as an overlay to existing connectivity technologies, such as IP-MPLS, microwave, satellite or public internet, to automate operations and enhance connectivity over large geographic regions. This will give its enterprise customers a central management view of the entire network, enabling them to easily control security, user permissions and parameters, such as latency and quality of service.
Amr A Eid, Chief Executive Officer and Board Member, OmniClouds said, “We are the trusted partner of enterprise customers in the Middle East and Africa region when they need help in migrating to the cloud. The Nuage Networks SD-WAN 2.0 solution plays a critical part in smoothing their move to the cloud by simplifying the operational side and providing the security and assurance they need for such a critical part of their business.”
Roque Lozano, Vice President of IP & Optics for Middle East and Africa, Nokia said, “OmniClouds is using Nokia Nuage Networks SD-WAN 2.0 solution as a powerful platform for offering cloud services to MEA regional businesses. It not only manages cloud connectivity, but also automates and simplifies many operations, eliminating any boundaries imposed by the underlying connectivity technology. It will play a key part in OmniClouds’ mission to further the adoption of cloud and to support the digital transformation of MEA businesses and organizations.”
