Tele2 begins major shift to cloud with Canonical

This article was last updated 4 years ago.


Tele2, one of Europe’s most innovative telecom operators, announced today that it will move its Network and IT infrastructure to the cloud to pave the way for future investment and network build out to 5G. This move puts Tele2 at the vanguard of the move to Network Function Virtualisation (NFV), a once in a generation change in the telecoms industry as applications (VNFs) are virtualized and cloudified.

Tele2 has chosen Canonical’s BootStack as its managed cloud platform and Canonical will design, build, and manage Canonical OpenStack clouds in Tele2’s operating markets.  Using Canonical’s managed hosting teams and automation tooling allows Tele2 to accelerate the rollout of NFV, reduce costs and focus internal resources  on the creation of new services.

Canonical OpenStack is the leading platform in NFV roll outs globally and supports a host of telecom specific characteristics including support for SR-IOV, DPDK and CPU pinning out of the box.

Tele2 will also be leveraging V-PIL, Canonical’s VNF Performance and Interoperability lab and Juju for application modelling (generic VNF management).  Together these tools will ensure successful evaluation, onboarding and deployment of workloads to Tele2’s NFV infrastructure.  Juju enables the modelling, configuration,  testing and deployment of VNFs. Juju integrates with industry leading orchestration solutions and allows for a common model to be used to manage applications from different suppliers. With wide industry support,  Tele2 will use Juju charms to deploy hundreds of preconfigured services to its customers across its Business, Consumer and IOT segments.

We are delighted to be working with an innovator like Tele2 and showing how automation can bring physicalized, virtualized and cloudified network functions to an industry standard OpenStack cloud. Canonical’s engineering and support teams are amongst the most experienced in the industry, having worked with hundreds of OpenStack customers all over the world.
