Open network technology offers scalability and flexibility in the modern data center
15 January 2020 – Cumulus Networks, innovation leader in the field of open, modern and scalable networks and Infradata, the leading supplier of security, cloud and network solutions, are joining forces. By using the open networking software from Cumulus, Infradata is even better able to continue to innovate and support its customers in Europe.
Open network technology
Powerful automation of network tasks and investments in new technologies are necessary for operators to remain competitive. Where the turnover of telecom operators is hardly increasing and the expectations of the service provision are extremely high today, new and innovative models need to be embraced to reduce the operational costs and work more efficiently. A good example of modern technology is the open network operating system Cumulus Linux. By using open network technology and A-brand industry-standard hardware, complexity is reduced and the performance and reliability of the network are improved. With Cumulus’ solutions, Infradata customers are able to build a network infrastructure that guarantees scalability, flexibility and far-reaching automation.
“It is good to note that the appreciation of open network technology among the important cloud networking integrators is increasing. They are closely following developments in that area,” says Robby van Roosmalen, Sales Director Netherlands at Cumulus Networks. “The high-quality solutions from Cumulus in combination with the specialist knowledge in the field of cloud networking and cyber security at Infradata have the result that organisations can be completely unburdened. We are very happy with this promising cooperation.”
“The Cumulus channel community continues to go from strength to strength across Europe. We are delighted to be working with the Infradata team, who bring the business intelligence, technical skills and true passion for open networking that we look for in our selective focus partner relationships. We are excited to see how our collaboration with Infradata develops as we drive for mutual success in market.” Lara O’Brien, Senior Director Worldwide Partnerships, Cumulus Networks.
Importance of integrator
Mohamed El Haddouchi, CTO of Infradata Group: “With our established name and focus on innovation, we see the networking market shifting strongly to Open Networking. This means that the role of an integrator is changing. Various vendors solutions are integrated, as well as the functionalities of various manufacturers. The question that then arises is: who takes responsibility for the solution? This role is reserved for an integrator such as Infradata. The importance of this role is increasing and that is why we have a strong need for a cooperation partner such as Cumulus Networks. We see many opportunities to continue to distinguish ourselves together in the network environment and look forward to the next steps in this collaboration.”
