TELUS Builds IP Next-Generation Network Cloud Services Using Cisco Unified Service Delivery Technology

Cisco announced that TELUS is enhancing its service delivery network using Cisco Unified Service Delivery. The solution combines the power of the data center with the power of the network to transform service delivery and build a foundation for cloud services.

This deployment is central to TELUS' primary goal of further expanding delivery of best-in-class managed services and delivering a comprehensive range of world-class, innovative data and communications services.

As customer demand for advanced managed services increases along with a growing interest in flexible cloud-based services, TELUS has been building its national infrastructure to enable expansion of its managed services to meet the evolving needs of enterprise and small-business customers. To deliver quality solutions, TELUS has extended its investment in the Cisco Nexus 2000, Cisco Nexus 5000 and Cisco Nexus 7000 switching platforms in data center facilities across Canada.

TELUS chose the Cisco Nexus platform for its ability to combine Ethernet, Internet Protocol (IP) and storage capabilities across one unified network fabric. The platform is an essential part of Unified Service Delivery, a solution that not only unifies data center resources but enables peering and interconnecting between data centers. These capabilities facilitate service integration, flexibility and agility in delivering entertainment, information and communication-based services.

The Cisco Nexus family of switches helps customers reduce total cost of ownership, accelerate business growth and extend the life cycle of current infrastructure by making the data center more efficient, responsive and resilient.

TELUS is taking advantage of the reliability, scalability and flexibility of Cisco Unified Service Delivery to offer a range of cloud-based infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) managed services. TELUS Managed IT solutions provide customers with the flexibility to out-task IT systems management according to their particular business requirements – from provisioning servers for customer-facing websites to offering fully out-tasked customized solutions, including end-to-end management of networks, desktops, servers and storage.
