DriveNets Network Cloud deployed at DIGI, carrying customer traffic across Romania

    DriveNets Network Cloud Enhances DIGI's Infrastructure

    Proving modern disaggregated networks can be implemented quickly, cost effectively, and at scale

    RA’ANANA, Israel, Feb. 14, 2024DriveNets – a leader in innovative networking solutions – today announced its Network Cloud solution has been deployed and is carrying significant customer traffic on a commercial network in Romania, with expanded coverage planned to other countries as well. Network Cloud is up and running on production IP/MPLS networks operated by DIGI – the leading operator in Romania, with presence in Spain, Portugal, Belgium and Italy. This deployment demonstrates that network operators are able to transition from traditional networks to a modern cloud-like network architecture quickly and at scale.

    DIGI has successfully deployed Network Cloud on core network sites across Romania. Network Cloud currently manages over 25% of DIGI’s core traffic. Network Cloud was deployed on DIGI’s network in 2023 and since then has proved its capability to simplify the provider’s network operations and handle significant traffic workloads dependably. DIGI had an active role in adapting DriveNets solution to its needs and specificities, as DIGI’s network is a state of the art and redundant, operated by its own teams with its own developed solutions.

    DIGI has chosen DriveNets for its open disaggregated network solution, with the goal to modernize its networks while avoiding incumbent vendor lock, achieving greater network efficiency, and reducing its capital and operating expenses. This deployment shows the strength of a software-based approach where network changes and optimizations can be accomplished efficiently and new capabilities can be rolled out rapidly.

    “Working with DriveNets was a great experience for our top engineers,” said Valentin Popoviciu, Vice – President of DIGI Group. “The company was responsive to our needs and the software-based networking approach of Network Cloud enables greater agility and faster delivery of new features and capabilities compared to traditional routers.”

    “Network disaggregation isn’t only for the Tier-1 operators of the world; it’s gaining momentum across the entire industry and across the globe,” said Roy Chua, Founder and Principal at AvidThink. “The successful rollouts of DriveNets Network Cloud at DIGI shows that cloud-like networks can outperform traditional networks while significantly increasing service agility and cost optimization for operators of all sizes.”
