Telefónica CTO & HP NFV SVP and GM: HP selected as prime on UNICA project


At Mobile World Congress a few weeks past, HP and Telefónica announced that HP has been designated as the technology provider and systems integrator for UNICA, Telefónica’s global network functions virtualization (NFV) and software defined networking (SDN) project.  For an review on the announcement, we invite you to watch the following four minute interview of Enrique Blanco, Global CTO of Telefónica, in conversation with Saar Gillai, SVP and GM of Network Functions Virtualization, HP.




In the video they discuss HP's role in the UNICA project – as not just a technology provider, but as a system integrator to help Telefónica on its journey to NFV. They review why:

  • Telefónica chose HP
  • An open, multi-vendor environment is so important to Telefónica
  • This project, in which Telefónica is going "full-bore" on NFV, is significant to the industry as a whole.
