O₂ Telefónica - Testlab data center for the mobile network

References | 25.05.2023

O2 Telefónica is a listed telecommunications company headquartered in Munich. The company employs around 7500 people and is one of the leading German telecommunications providers with a turnover of 8.2 billion euros in the 2022 business year and 44 million mobile phone connections.

Data Center Group supported O2 Telefónica in the relocation and implementation of a new test lab data center for its mobile network. Due to a required move from its old technical location, the telecommunications provider needed a new data center that would meet the increased IT infrastructure requirements for software rollout, live network technology and mobile communications technology. For the new test lab, the project partners chose an IT partitioning system solution because it can be ideally integrated into the planned location. O2 Telefónica is implementing a complete real test environment for the mobile network. Through testing, the company ensures that there are no unforeseen effects on the entire mobile network as a result of software changes such as updates or hardware changes. For this reason, all changes to the network are tested in a Service Integration Center (test lab) before they are implemented "live" in the mobile network. For this reason, a new high-performance, secure and highly available data center infrastructure was needed.

The project, led by Dennis Spies, was initiated within a year and completed on time.

With the help of its Service and Solutions business unit, Data Center Group is taking over site management and maintenance of the entire electrical and air-conditioning technology. As a result, O2 Telefónica can concentrate on its own day-to-day business and is future-proofed.

"With Data Center Group, we have been able to gain an experienced and reliable partner. Our partnership is based on numerous projects that we have successfully implemented in recent years ",underlines Axel Kindermann, Lead Testing & Accreditation of Telefónica.
