IT company HCL Technologies on Wednesday has declared the opening of a centre of excellence in collaboration with IBM to jointly offer network modernisation technology to telecom companies. The centre is a virtual hub to build up offerings designed to help telco clients transform their networks, including telecom companies core, vRAN (virtualised radio access networks), ORAN (open radio access networks), private networks, edge modernisation as well as 5G labs.

Our joint solutions will be designed to help telecom players speed up the modernisation of their network infrastructure. This is not only about automation; CSPs can build their cloud platform and bring much-needed flexibility to their network functions," HCL Technologies Chief Technology Officer and Ecosystems Head Kalyan Kumar said in a statement.

This CoE will help CSPs (communication service providers) modernise their network infrastructure, transform service delivery and simplify operations.

As part of this initiative, HCL Technologies will set up an IBM Telco Initiative Practice team to develop network outsourcing and modernisation solutions using IBM's open hybrid cloud approach.

"The centre of excellence for telecommunications aims to unite HCL Technologies' deep industry experience and IBM's open hybrid cloud approach to provide much-needed technical resources and hold up for clients in the industry," IBM Strategic Partnerships General Manager Inhi Cho Suh said.
