Swisscom - One more in our legacy of success


Hewlett Packard Enterprise is enabling  communications service providers (CSPs) to go from “NOW to NEXT” in this emerging competitive telco landscape. We ensure agility in delivering network services to helps CSPs provide their customers and partners a prodigious, efficient and agile customer experience.

A cornerstone of our commitment to enhance the CSP’s competitiveness is the OpenNFV platform that brings together a broad ecosystem of independent software vendors and network equipment providers to introduce new innovative solutions on an open, carrier-grade infrastructure. CSPs benefit from choosing different components from the vendors that best meet their needs, accelerating NFV deployments and provide customers with a simplified, faster and personalized experience – all the way from ordering to managing service preferences.

Trusting our vision, Swisscom, Switzerland’s leading telecommunications provider, decided to deploy new virtual network functions using HPE OpenNFV solutions. Swisscom is one of the first CSPs worldwide to incorporate NFV in their networks to offer virtual customer premise equipment (CPE) to its business customers. Swisscom utilized a number of HPE offerings, including HPE Virtual Services Router for managing firewall and routing, HPE Service Director for orchestration and HPE Technology Services for consulting and implementation to deploy an agile, innovative solution that made headlines at Mobile World Congress 2016 in Spain.

Swiscsom attributes HPE’s openness, collaborative work culture, strength of understanding business requirements, consideration for Swisscom key performance index (KPI)’s and ability to meet tough timelines as key factors in their success with this project. 

“Delivering networking services to our customers in a timely manner is our number one priority in this project – we were looking for lower cost as well as faster and easier ways to deliver services, which was a challenge when running our network functions on-premises,” said John de Keizer, Head of Development, Swisscom. “By partnering with HPE, we were able to quickly design, develop and integrate a new product based on of full automation, virtualized production and fast time to service.” - John de Keijzer, Head of Development, Swisscom
