Nokia deploys SR Linux and data center switches for everyWAN for service expansion and capacity

  • SR Linux will improve data center network scalability and aid operations visibility and automation
  • Solution augments Nokia-supplied IP transit and interconnection network deployed since December 2020

2 November 2021

Espoo, Finland – Nokia today announced it is providing its SR Linux network operating system (NOS) and 7220 IXR data center switches to everyWAN, the Spanish operator that provides national and international IP transit and interconnection services between major data centers and internet peering points in Europe. The solution will enable everyWAN to expand its services and data center operations by improving network scalability, while helping operations objectives with more granular network visibility and NetOps automation.

The solution augments the IP transit, interconnection and data center gateway solution based on Nokia 7750 Service Routers (7750 SR) that everyWAN has deployed in its international backbone network since December 2020. Since this deployment, everyWAN customers have enjoyed increased service resiliency and reliability compared to the previous solution. In addition, customers enjoy a wider range of new service offerings as part of the everyWAN portfolio.

EveryWAN offers its customers an ecosystem of premium “pay-as-you-go” services. The Nokia solution has enabled the everyWAN network to scale to handle a huge growth in traffic driven by the convergence of communications and IT. In addition, the solution enables everyWAN to offer its customers the best interconnection and IP transit services to all major European destinations, cloud providers and internet exchange providers by selecting the best routes based on lowest latency, jitter, speed fluctuation and packet loss.

Pau Nadeu, CTO for everyWAN, said: “We selected Nokia because of its brand name in service provider networks, the wide range of services its solutions enable us to offer, and its market leading reputation for the robustness of its solutions. Our customers demand the very best IP transit, interconnection and data center services. The benefits of the Nokia solution are evident by the significant reduction in the number of network incidents compared to our previous network. We have had no outages since deploying the Nokia solution and this has improved the perception of everyWAN’s services by our customers.”

Manuel Ortiz Fernandez, Senior Vice President of EMEA Webscale Business at Nokia, said: “We are pleased that everyWAN selected Nokia to increase the capacity of its network and help improve the reliability and breadth of its services. Since the Nokia equipment was installed, traffic on the network has increased three times, and everyWAN is able to offer its customers links at speeds up to 100 Gb/sec. With the addition of the Nokia SR Linux and the 7220 IXR leaf-spine switches, it now has a network designed with the scale, capacity and resiliency required for the future.”
