Bridging the IT-telecom divide

In our hyper-connected world of voice, video and data, legacy networks can no longer adequately support communication services providers. Explosive growth in cloud, mobile and social technologies are pushing the limits of your network capabilities. Competition is growing, and revenue streams are eroding. It’s time to bridge the IT and service network divide with digital infrastructure solutions that unify your operations to create new agility, new services and new revenue.

Infrastructure that unifies communication and compute

From purpose-built network equipment to an NFV-based telco cloud, HPE has all the elements you need for a complete telecom infrastructure transformation, all in one place. We combine programmable infrastructure, customisable service platforms and automated operations on-demand with our global telco leadership and decades of experience in the communications industry. Let us show you how to pair carrier-grade IT and virtualisation technologies create efficiencies that drive new revenue opportunities.

Benefits of a telco cloud


uptime for high availability


increase in data-plan revenue


reduction in new-service design time


reduction in support costs

Build a future-proof, 5G-ready network

Building a 5G network is about more than just faster radio access. From massive loads of IIoT M2M data to a whole new wave of connectivity-based services, next-generation telecom networks must support ultra-reliable, extremely high-bandwidth, extremely low-latency communications – built across a truly distributed cloud. Prepare your network for 5G adoption by transitioning to a more programmable, industry-standards-based infrastructure: distribute wherever you can, centralise only when you must, and compute everywhere.
