Cloud Data Center Interconnect

Data center interconnect for the cloud era

Nokia cloud data center interconnect (cloud DCI) solutions enable you to connect your data centers in the cloud with greater scalability, reliability and security. Our cloud DCI solutions provide agility and flexibility to let you interconnect data centers and IT resources across private, virtual private, hybrid, and public clouds. We offer cloud DCI solutions for communications service providers (CSPs), internet content providers (ICPs), carrier neutral co-location providers (CNPs), enterprises and public-sector organizations. Nokia cloud DCI solutions let you choose the best options to enable your data centers and IT resources for the cloud.
