China's Capital Online taps Nokia to upgrade its IP backbone

Beijing-based cloud computing service provider, Capital Online, has selected Nokia to upgrade its IP backbone network.

The upgrade will help Capital Online build a cost-effective converged backbone network and realize its Network 2.0 plan, enabling it to provide reliable cloud services with a better customer experience.

As per the deal, Capital Online will deploy the Nokia 7750 Service Router (SR) and 7250 IXR interconnect router platforms to specifically support Capital Online’s ambitious Network 2.0 plan. This entails that the converged backbone provides performance certainty for all traffic flows under all network conditions, the versatility to converge edge and core routing functions onto a common platform, smart traffic engineering with segment routing-MPLS, and granular QoS to address different traffic demands for reliable service delivery.

According to a press release from the Finnish multinational telecommunications, information technology, and consumer electronics company, its Nokia 7750 SR and 7250 IXR platforms offer unique advantages for building Capital Online’s backbone network. Based on the industry-leading Service Router Operating System (SR OS), Nokia’s portfolio provides end-to-end advanced IP routing protocols, including Segment Routing, to achieve fast and efficient service delivery along with end-to-end service assurance for all traffic flows. By building a cost-effective converged backbone network based on high-density routers having 100GE/400GE interfaces, Nokia’s platforms are geared to help Capital Online succeed in its cloud business, it said.

Xu Xiaohu, Chief Architect of Capital Online, said: “As a trusted partner of critical networks, Nokia has abundant experiences helping its global customers build high capacity and quality IP networks. We’re looking forward to collaborating with Nokia to accelerate the transformation of our network to provide faster, more reliable network services for our global customers throughout the U.S., Europe, and Asia.”

Markus Borchert, CEO of Nokia Shanghai Bell, said: “Capital Online is known for being specialists in delivering exceptional online experiences for global business. We are pleased to help it create an industry-leading IP network that will upgrade its existing backbone network to the Network 2.0 era, paving the way to increase its footprint in the global Cloud market in the future.”
