Juniper Networks announced that Saudi Telecom Company(STC) has deployed Juniper Networks Contrail Networking to create automated, best-in-class cloud services for its customers. STC will spearhead its Network Function Virtualization(NFV) in the region, thereby offering its customers accessible, dynamic online services and applications rapidly.

STC gains more agility since it has opted for Juniper Networks Contrail Networking’s OpenStack cloud platform thereby achieving dynamic scaling of service instances with high availability and reliability. This approach is expected to increase STC’s business agility and revenue growth.

STC’s new Contrail Networking -based service platform reduces time-to-market for new customized services, applications and functions by connecting virtual resources located across private and public clouds. Contrail Networking creates and orchestrates easy-to-manage virtual overlay networks that integrate seamlessly with STC’s physical systems. STC is expecting increased international growth opportunities with the simplified roll-out of new virtualized services.

“At STC, we have a ‘customer-first’ approach. We aim to earn our customers trust and enrich society with comprehensive, innovative services and solutions. The network, underpinned by advanced NFV and automation capabilities, can deliver substantial value to our customers by providing the agility, speed and simplicity that today’s businesses require. Juniper is an ideal partner with the same customer-centric approach, providing us with state-of-the-art technology for our cloud-based offerings.” said Dr. Tarig M. Enaya, senior vice president for enterprise at Saudi Telecom company.
