Three of Europe’s biggest operators have signed up Cisco to deploy a range of products for their enterprise customers.

The US vendor was revealed as the company behind DT’s Cloud VPN service, which was the first to be launched on the operator’s pan European, all-IP network earlier this week.

The product uses a self-service online portal that enables DT’s enterprise customers to select, subscribe to and activate internet services.

The two companies said it had been designed and developed using a collaborative "devops" philosophy.

Dr Elias Drakopoulos, Senior Vice President, Business Excellence at DT commented: "The digitisation of the SMB sector is key to economic growth across Europe. Virtualisation and cloud open up new ways to bring enterprise-class IT services within easy reach of SMBs.

“With the ever-increasing level of security threats, digitisation starts with highly secure access, and for that reason, we decided to start the roll-out of our new generation of cloud-managed IT services with Cloud VPN."

Telecom Italia is also tapping Cisco to boost its enterprise offering.

The operator said it plans to offer a modular and complete set of services for managing and operating business customer networks.

The two companies said they planned to work together on developing of additional cloud managed services based on Cisco’s virtualisation and orchestration software platform.

Finally, UK-based operator EE is deploying Cisco small cells to provide its enterprise customers with a better network.

The vendor said businesses will benefit from a “five-bar” experience using standalone access points and a small cell solution that will support modules that plug into existing Cisco Wi-Fi access points.
