    real time and ensure optimal customer experience

30th May 2019

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today announced Telefónica Spain will use the Deepfield
Cloud Intelligence analytics solution to improve user experience and
troubleshoot content delivery in real time. Nokia Deepfield will equip
Telefónica Spain with previously unattainable visibility into application and
service traffic on its network. This provides vital, data-driven insight and
analytics into the capacity being used and enables automated actions to
significantly improve service assurance and performance.

Online video consumption continues to surge worldwide, with customers expecting
the highest quality of experience for gaming and video streaming services. In
Spain, specifically, regulator CNMC reported three out of ten households consume
online content as of 2018, with approximately 5.9 million online video
subscribers in the country. In addition, although cloud applications and
services make up more than 60% of global network traffic today, according to
Deepfield's analytics, providers have had very limited insight into application
traffic running on their networks or the impact network performance has on end-
user applications and subscriber experience to-date.

Telefónica is responding to these challenges with an ambitious automation
strategy, relying on Nokia Deepfield software for its automated cloud and
network analytics for real-time, actionable insights on network performance and
quality of experience. Nokia Deepfield provides Telefónica with an unrivaled
view of each network path and the aggregated traffic running to and through it
with Nokia's unique Cloud Genome® technology, which tracks more than 50,000
popular cloud applications and over-the-top services.
The insights provided by Nokia Deepfield allow network engineers to quickly
adapt to changes in application demand and fluctuating traffic patterns by
supporting advanced IP network engineering and assurance use cases with
Javier Gutiérrez, Director of Strategy and Network and IT Development at
Telefónica Spain, said: "Telefónica is transforming its IP network (Fusión
network as it has been named), to introduce automation capabilities. A detailed
knowledge of network and service performance, in real-time, is required to truly
achieve the benefits of automation. The Nokia Deepfield solution gives us the
necessary network visibility and actionable analytics that will allow us to
automate our operations and continue to improve our network and service

Kevin Macaluso, General Manager of Nokia Deepfield, said: "By correlating the
Deepfield Cloud Genome® "map of the internet" with telemetry network data, Nokia
provides operators with visibility into video services and cloud applications
performance throughout their network, all in software - without the need for
expensive probes, taps and monitors in the network itself. This allows Nokia
customers to insightfully drive automation for greater network efficiency to
help assure quality and enhance security."
