Telefónica’s enterprise division has teamed up with Huawei to develop a new solution aimed at boosting the digital transformation of SMEs.
Built around a combination of a network service platform and CloudVPN, the service offers businesses a private network that connects multiple premises.
Customers will be able to fully control the deployment of the service and implement a single governance model across all their business applications, the two companies said.
The solution offers a web portal allowing customers to monitor, manage and adjust services in real time, and includes built-in security to protect against cyber attacks.
Customers can also use the solution to manage third party public or private networks, as it works on an open source model.
It will initially be available in Argentina and Chile, with Europe and other parts of Latin America to follow.
Hugo de los Santos, Director, Global B2B Products & Services at Telefónica, said: “Telefónica has a long tradition in supporting SMEs.
“Now that digitalisation is transforming everything at an unparalleled speed we want to keep playing a key role supporting their digital transformation.”
The offering falls under the remit of Telefónica Business Solutions, which has over 5.5 million business customers around the world.
The unit includes the operator’s offerings for enterprise and multinational customers as well as its wholesale and roaming businesses.
