Efficient server rollout with Rapid Data Center Deployment Services

Telefónica Deutschland offers telecommunication services to private and business customers as well as innovative digital products and services in the areas of "Internet of Things" and data analytics. With a total of 49.4 million customer connections (as of 30 June 2018), the company is one of the leading integrated telecommunications providers in Germany. In the mobile segment alone, Telefónica Deutschland is responsible for over 45.2 million connections - no other national network operator connects more people.

Objective

As part of the implementation of a virtualised IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) solution for VoLTE and VoWiFi, Telefónica has been using x86 systems from Dell Technologies since 2020. The new Dell PowerEdge R640 servers were to be delivered and installed at various data center locations throughout Germany. In order to keep the associated effort as low as possible, Computacenter organised the packaging-free delivery of the systems in coordination with the Telefónica project team and the customer's external project partner. The systems were to be provided in specified quantities and at defined times.

Solution

Flexible provision of ready-to-use devices with Rapid Data Center Deployment Services (RDD): The packaging-free and staggered delivery helped to keep the organisational effort for replacing the systems manageable. For this purpose, Computacenter ordered the servers from Dell Technologies and stored them temporarily in the Kerpen Integration Center. After unpacking and power-on tests, the next step was the delivery to Telefónic's data centers. Packaged in wheeled flight cases, servers were dispatched according to a coordinated rollout plan.

Outcome

The RDD services enabled a more efficient installation of the servers. By Computacenter taking over the organisationally complex and "tedious" tasks, Telefónica saved a lot of time and effort for coordination. Concurrently, problems due to a lack of storage capacity on the customer side could be circumvented by staggering the delivery.

By providing flexible deployment of ready-to-use and unpacked equipment, Computacenter’s Rapid Data Center Deployment Services help companies modernise their data centers quickly and easily.
