Is your company interested in learning more about telecommunication infrastructures and IoT to use for its benefit?

Lenovo has created an expansion plan to deliver customer-centric, disruptive software-defined solutions to support telecom and IoT infrastructure. Coming from the momentum of their highest revenue quarter in two years, Lenovo Data Center Group (DCG) continues to accelerate its transformation journey to develop customer-centric innovation. The company is intent on disrupting the status quo of expensive legacy solutions.

“Lenovo is accelerating our telecom and IoT plans based on strong global customer demand,” said Kirk Skaugen, EVP and President, Lenovo Data Center Group. “Our goal is to earn customers’ trust as the world’s most trusted data center and communications infrastructure provider, unencumbered by the protectionism seen from providers driving proprietary and expensive legacy solutions. We are also thrilled to be hiring some of the best talent in the industry with a focus on expanding on our position as #1 in x86 server customer satisfaction and reliability.”

Lenovo has seen significant progress as it shifted its data center focus to meet the needs of hyper-scale customers, high performance computing (HPC) customers and enterprise customers. They have accomplished this by accelerating their cloud and artificial intelligence initiatives with the latest technologies. This has resulted in new levels of operational simplicity. The next phase of the transformation is focused on the telecom infrastructure and global IoT requirements.

The expanded Lenovo telecom organization will focus on creating joint innovation platforms to deliver customer-centric solutions. This will build on Lenovo’s unparalleled expertise in reliable standards-based hardware. As 5G deployment plans further solidify across the globe, Lenovo will build and partner on NFV hardware and software solutions based on The Open Compute Project and other standards.

Lenovo and Intel are working together on a performance optimized offering based on Lenovo ThinkSystem SR650/SR630 servers and switches, Red Hat OpenStack and Mellanox ConnectX-4 NICs for accelerated packet processing. Also, Lenovo is joining the ‘Intel Select Solution for NFV’ program and offering a solution specially optimized for encryption and compression based NFV workloads. The solution is comprised of Intel QuickAssist Technology (QAT) and Intel XXV710 NIC enabled on Lenovo SR650/SR630 servers.

“Lenovo’s leadership and adoption of Intel Select Solutions is enabling rapid prototyping and deployment of next generation communication services, enabling increased opportunities and higher customer value,” said Sandra Rivera, SVP and GM, the Network Platforms Group, Intel Corporation. “Our collaboration with Lenovo will encourage the adoption of Intel Select Solutions for NFVI and will speed time to market while offering a verified solution configuration that is optimized for performance capability.”
