How can we bring the power of the cloud to mobile devices?

Deutsche Telekom and Google Cloud expand their partnership, where Deutsche Telekom will pilot some core functions on Google Cloud’s platform in Austria

Deutsche Telekom and Google Cloud have recently extended their partnership to explore areas including core network services and data analytics, using Google’s cloud-native and edge technology.

Together they have created a joint roadmap for the telecommunications industry by bringing the power of the cloud closer to mobile and connected devices at the edge of Deutsche Telekom's network.

"Communication service providers are increasingly looking for cloud-native solutions to advance the deployment of network functions and drive automation, elasticity, and scalability. We believe our partnership with Deutsche Telekom will deliver significantly improved experiences for end users that will ultimately raise the standard for the telecommunications industry," said Thomas Kurian, CEO, Google Cloud. 

Creating more reliable cloud networks

Through the extended partnership they will jointly pilot several network services such as 5G Standalone in Austria, as well as remote packet gateway functions, leveraging Google Cloud and Google Distributed Cloud Edge.

By creating more secure, reliable, and scalable cloud-native networks, companies like Deutsche Telekom are better positioned to deliver elastic, high-capacity, high-bandwidth, and low-latency connectivity and value added services to their customers. Deutsche Telekom will trial Google Cloud's data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) solutions in a joint proof of concept in order to improve actionable insights and better understanding of customer needs and optimise offerings.

"At Deutsche Telekom we are implementing our Leading Digital Telco strategy by investing in best-in-class network infrastructure and by establishing cloud-based service platforms. We are excited to expand our partnership with Google Cloud by conducting trials in key areas that will allow us to more rapidly innovate and launch new services and customer experiences," said Claudia Nemat, board member of Deutsche Telekom.

Google Cloud has also announced key partnerships this year with the likes of Vodafone, BT, Telefónica Deutschland, Ooredoo, Bell Canada and Elisa.
