May 31, 2017

[Madrid, Spain, May 31, 2017] UK EE and Huawei have jointly won the '2017 Most Successful Deployment of NFV' award at the Network Virtualization Industry Awards 2017 organized by Informa. This award affirms UK EE and Huawei's efforts and contributions for successful commercial projects in the NFV industry.

EE, part of the BT group, is the UK's leading 4G operator and is always focused on network quality leadership. As 4G came along and ramped-up quickly, EE found it difficult to scale the existing policy platform to support different service requirements. EE then decided to transform that existing platform with the latest NFV technology for a more agile and dynamic infrastructure.

With the help of Huawei NFV integration services, UK EE successfully deployed and commercialized the new multiple vendor NFV solution. The solution introduced layered reliability design and seamless geographic redundancy, which greatly improved the network reliability. With Huawei's rich experience in the telecom industry, and automation capabilities including continuous integration, continuous testing and continuous delivery, they have successfully migrated existing subscribers to this new policy platform and helped to realize faster service time to market.

"After we deploy the new policy platform, we can provide customers with more and better services quickly, so that UK EE can continuously maintain a leading position" said Scott Berry, Director of Mobility Core, EE/ BT.

"We are excited and delighted to be part of UK EE NFV transformation project and are honored to be recognized by the industry through our achievements with this award from Informa. We will continue to work closely with UK EE and operators in Europe and around the world to transform their network and provide high quality services to their customers", said Mr. Wietse van der Wal, Vice President of Western Europe Professional Service at Huawei.
