China Mobile (Suzhou) Software Technical Company has selected Nokia’s Nuage Networks as the SDN platform for China Mobile’s public and private enterprise cloud services targeting enterprise customers.

The SDN platform includes cloud implementations on virtual machines, Kubernetes (K8S) containers and OpenStack Ironic-based bare metal servers.

Nokia Shanghai Bell helped deploy Nuage Networks VSP solution to deliver China Mobile’s public and private cloud services in 10 data centers, the largest deployment containing over 1,000 servers. Nokia Shanghai Bell won 55 percent share in this project.

China Mobile will expand its offer to include new public, private and hybrid cloud services such as hosting workloads on either Kubernetes (K8S) containers or on bare metal servers, Sunil Khandekar, CEO of Nokia’s Nuage Networks, said.
