VMware is a leader in multi-cloud virtualization, capable of delivering and managing software that runs on and across many platforms. With VMware Telco Cloud Automation, VMware is building on its leadership in telecom multi-cloud infrastructure management, providing a complete automation capability that can deliver revenue-generating services on the Telco cloud. VMware believes that automation and orchestration is the only way telcos can contain complexity. While the cloud simplifies, without orchestration it makes networks more complex. VMware’s strategy with Telco Cloud Automation is to enable multi-vendor, multi-cloud, multi-location, cross-domain networks, leveraging its familiarity as the virtualization layer in many of those clouds.
