Telefónica selects Huawei to build large scale virtual EPC network in 13 countries as part of its UNICA programTelefónica announced its cooperation with Huawei in virtual enviroments.
This large scale vEPC network deployment is a further step within the Telefónica UNICA virtualization program where a smooth migration to UNICA infra cloud capabilities will be reached following extensive test in Telefónica LAB.
We are delighted Telefónica has entrusted Huawei the cloudification of such critical network function, which further strengthens the cooperation within Telefónica UNICA program.” said Michael Ma, President of Cloud Core Network at Huawei.
Telefónica and Huawei have been jointly working and testing Huawei CloudEPC performance, in Telefónica’s NFV (Network Function Virtualization) Reference Lab in Madrid.
Huawei vEPC maintains the same features as its existing physical version, SingleEPC, inheriting the long-term experience and the advantages of its leadership in communications technology.
Telefonica selects Huawei for large-scale virtual EPC network deployment

During these tests, Huawei CloudEPC showed one of the best perfor
mances in both data and signalling planes by good cloud-formation architecture and by using EPA (Enhanced Platform Awareness) technologies.
Telefonica and Huawei have been jointly working and testing the performance of the latter’s vEPC solution, dubbed CloudEPC, at the Spanish firm’s NFV (Network Function Virtualisation) Reference Lab in Madrid.
Spanish telecoms giant Telefonica has announced that it is cooperating with Huawei in virtual environments, with the duo to construct a large-scale virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC), a framework for providing converged voice and data on LTE networks, in Latin America and Europe.
Javier Gavilan, Planning and Technology Director at Telefonica, Global CTO, said of the plans: ‘Telefonica has been actively working for some time in the evolution of network virtualisation technologies … This large scale vEPC network deployment is a further step within the Telefonica UNICA virtualisation program where a smooth migration to UNICA infra cloud capabilities will be reached following extensive test in Telefonica LAB.
These results provide the confidence needed to continue with the adoption and deployment of virtualised solutions and to enable the transformation to software-driven networking.’
