Nokia Provides Xiaomi With High-Speed Fiber Optic Network
The agreement between the two companies builds on Nokia's substantial track-record providing data center interconnect (DCI) solutions to large enterprises. These firms include webscale companies, financial institutions, healthcare providers and more. The project also highlights the growing momentum behind Nokia's strategy to expand its customer base to organizations outside of the traditional telecommunications sphere.
Get To Know Nokia And Xiaomi
Nokia Corporation is a well-known Finnish multinational communications and information technology company headquartered in Espoo, Uusimaa. It was founded as a pulp mill in 1865 but now focuses on large-scale telecommunications infrastructures as well as technology development. According to the 2013 Fortune Global 500, Nokia is the world's 274th-largest company. The company eventually entered into an agreement with Microsoft in 2011 to exclusively use Microsoft's Windows Phone platform, which was completed on 25 April 2014.
Xiaomi, on the other hand, is a privately owned electronics company headquartered in Beijing, China. It is considered as the world's 4th largest smartphone maker. The Chinese company designs, develops and sells smartphones, apps, laptops and other related consumer electronics. Today, according to NetFonds, Nokia announced that the company is providing Xiaomi with its data center interconnect (DCI) solution, based on the firm's 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) and managed by the Network Services Platform.
Xiaomi's High-Speed Fiber Optic Network Will Be Provided By Nokia
The 1830 PSS is a high-speed fiber optic network with high-performance Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) platform, as described by Nasdaq. This network delivers the capacity, security, as well as the control required for enterprise data center networks. The DCI solution from Nokia can enable Xiaomi to tie together its 7 data centers in the Beijing region. It can also effectively establish a private cloud that it can use to strengthen its internal data management needs.
The head of China IP and Optical Networks Business Group, Drazen Lukic, said that Xiaomi may look forward to taking advantage of the benefits of private cloud provided by Nokia. He also said that "Nokia's data center interconnect solution offers an ideal way of bringing together geographically distributed assets to form a single, high-performance cloud." This high-speed fiber optic network will enable Xiaomi to maximize network capacity, address fast-growing traffic demands and enjoy the flexibility of the cloud with the security, reliability and performance of a private network.
