Vodafone Idea Limited is deploying a state-of-the-art, automated multicloud network across the country to enable an unmatched experience for its retail and enterprise customers. The company has collaborated with Cisco to deploy a distributed multicloud architecture, based on Cisco network functions virtualization infrastructure (NFVI). This automated solution has enabled a nationwide deployment. It has fast-tracked Vodafone Idea’s data core network rollout, increased capacities, and helped reduce costs as cloud implementation is done in just 72 hours. The platform being built is ready to host both IT and network applications on one cloud.
Vodafone Idea Limited’s automated cloud-scale architecture is synchronized across applications, operating systems, infrastructure, and an underlying IP-MPLS core. The lean architecture design is brought to life with Cisco solutions comprised of Cisco VIM for NFVI management, Cisco Ultra Packet Core and Policy, third-party VNFs (virtual network functions), and Cisco application-centric infrastructure (Cisco ACI).
