NetworkingSouth KoreaTop Stories

Nokia has announced that SK C&C has deployed its managed Nuage Networks solution, Nokia Cloud Managed SD-WAN Service, which provides network connectivity between branches and the cloud while delivering enhanced security and network visibility.  

SK C&C will benefit from advanced networking services, including application aware routing, multiple WAN uplinks per site, and a set of centrally managed network and security policies that simplify wide area and security management.

The Nokia Cloud Managed SD-WAN Service removes the start-up and operational costs of deployed SD-WAN via its leading cloud hosted, multi-tenancy deployment model that delivers SD-WAN-as-a-Service.

As a locally hosted solution, SK C&C benefits from a simplified deployment model that improves service deployment time and removes the need for capital expenditure through its As-a-Service subscription model. This allows SK C&C to focus on the deployment of SD-WAN and accelerate the uptake of private and public cloud deployments without the burden of additional network CAPEX.

The deployment and maintenance services are provided by Nokia Cloud Managed SD-WAN Service distributor, Dongkuk Systems.

Jangsoo Shin, Head of Hybrid Cloud1 Group at SK C&C, said:”We are excited to use the Nokia Cloud Managed SD-WAN Service to drive operational efficiency at a lower expense. Further, it delivers enhanced security and multiple uplink support compared to traditional WAN, leading to a substantial increase in network availability while reducing on-going maintenance costs.”
