e& UAE taps Nokia cloud interconnect solutions to court hypserscalers

e& UAE will use cloud interconnect solutions from Nokia to deliver services for hyperscalers in its home market.

The operator, which is the telecom arm of e&, will be able to provide higher quality connectivity using Nokia FP5-based technology. The boost in performance, scale and security will enable e& UAE’s network to support mission-critical applications delivered across evolved business-class services. 

Given the rapid evolution of cloud services in the market, e& UAE is looking to streamline its network architecture to facilitate more seamless connectivity with cloud service providers. This will reduce latency for its customers as well as minimise network disruption.

Nokia’s cloud interconnect solution is aimed at boosting network performance in hyperscale environments via more efficient routing and traffic management, as well as allocating resources to meet demand more effectively. The vendor’s FP5-based platforms are terabit-class routers delivering high performance, capacity, and security for cloud-scale networks, backed up by its ANYsec technology for end-to-end encryption and authentication across all network traffic.

Khaled Al Suwaidi, Senior Vice President, Core Networks & Platforms at e& UAE, said: “This collaboration allows frictionless access to innovative applications that enhance the user experience. It also supports e& UAE’s objective of optimising our current network architecture to seamlessly integrate with public clouds while ensuring the highest levels of security and reliability for our customers.”
