QSC Introduces New Hybrid Cloud Services with Ciena and Kapsch
QSC is launching new, hybrid cloud services leveraging solutions from Ciena and Kapsch Carrier Solutions. Powered by Ciena's Waveserver stackable data centre interconnect (DCI) platform, these new services provide German enterprise customers with access to tailored, dedicated managed cloud and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings from QSC's TÜV and ISO-certified German-based data centres.

The enhanced network allows QSC's customers to take full advantage of a secure, ‘multi-cloud approach'. This means customers can use a combination of dedicated / private and public cloud resources from a variety of providers as turnkey service components that can be developed and expanded as needed. In addition, as access is provided via QSC's proprietary broadband network, enterprise customers have consistent, end-to-end management for all their cloud IT needs, helping them avoid any security and compatibility risks associated with one-off, isolated services.

Key Facts:

  • QSC is a German, end-to-end cloud outsourcing, consulting and telecommunications provider. QSC's fully-owned TÜV and ISO certified data centres and nationwide network offer flexible, tailored cloud solutions as well as on-premise and hybrid IT services to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), utilities, financial services and the public sector.
  • With Ciena and Kapsch, QSC is expanding its capabilities and supplies the whole spectrum of state-of-the-art ICT services. The new portfolio is comprised of IT workplaces; including desktops, telephony and client and mobility management, as well as SAP and other industry-specific applications and solutions as a fully managed cloud infrastructure.
  • Ciena's Waveserver platform - equipped with the WaveLogic 3 Extreme coherent optical chipset, rich software features and open APIs - reinforces QSC's DCI infrastructure for multi-terabit bandwidth connectivity. Waveserver's openness and high programmability ensure quick and simple integration and service automation for fast, easy service activation and monitoring.
  • Kapsch, a Ciena BizConnect partner, worked with Ciena to upgrade QSC's network, offering advanced, integration services and ongoing maintenance. QSC is also utilizing Ciena's packet portfolio for its national wireless network and Ethernet business services.

“Enterprises are reliant on cloud computing, and this dependence is increasing daily. With Ciena’s technology we are able to offer richer hybrid cloud services that will help grow our German business, drive new innovations and open up new opportunities. The scalability of the Waveserver platform also means that we can embrace future technologies, such as software defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualisation (NFV).” -- Clemens Plieth, Head of Cloud Architecture, QSC
