By Telecom Lead Team: Ericsson announced the
launch of its new offering for building and optimizing data centers at Mobile
World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.
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.
Ericsson is demonstrating a new concept for planning,
designing and implementing data centers and showcasing a complete cloud
computing platform, including cloud management and security. The new offering
is a part of the recently announced Network-enabled Cloud concept.
“Building a cloud solution will include a number of
technological approaches,” Paolo Colella, head of Consulting and Systems
Integration at Ericsson, said. 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.”
With this solution, Ericsson brings 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.
Ericsson’s cloud approach ranges from building new data
centers to providing solutions for operators through a consolidation,
modernization and standardization of existing IT environments. In addition,
cloud services and access to the enterprise IT environment via fixed and mobile
internet brings efficiency gains for the organization.
Colella added, “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
