To date, Telia has deployed VMware Telco Cloud Platform across 24 sites in six countries – Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Lithuania, Norway, and Sweden. More than 50% of Telia’s entire network traffic – inclusive of Volte, vEPC and PCRF – is already running on VMware Telco Cloud Platform. As part of its digitalization strategy, 100% of the traffic will be running on this platform by end of 2021 and Telia will move aggressively toward a completely cloud-native network to take full advantage of 5G, including at the edge. “As part of our transformation, we harmonize our networks and operations across Telia Company – gaining scale and synergy on products, platforms and processes. On this basis, we drive full softwarization and automation at scale, with VMware as a long-standing strategic partner. The journey ahead will build out our innovation leadership with cloud-native operations, automation at scale, and edge capabilities – driving efficiency, quality, and time to market. We are excited to work with VMware to build out our success story for all our markets and customers.” said Stefan Jäverbring, Group Chief Technology Officer at Telia Telia has selected VMware Telco Cloud Platform as the common network horizontal digital platform on top of which 4G and 5G core network functions - both virtualized and containerized – will run.

Introducing Meshnet - NordVPN’s New Feature

NordVPN | June 28, 2022

NordVPN has unveiled Meshnet, a unique new feature that will enable users to connect directly to other devices rather than routing their data through a VPN server, cementing the company's position as an industry leader. “Whereas a traditional NordVPN connection redirects your internet traffic through servers, Meshnet lets you create your own NordVPN server, made up of only your own or your friends' devices, regardless of their location. All that’s needed is a NordVPN subscription,” says Vykintas Maknickas, product strategist at NordVPN. “This feature release is a gamechanger and will truly transform how our users utilize NordVPN. Our product team has been working relentlessly for the past few years, which really began with the development of our flagship technology — NordLynx — the bedrock behind Meshnet that allows us to provide amplified privacy solutions without sacrificing industry leading speed,” Vykintas Maknickas, product strategist at NordVPN To use Meshnet, users must first update their NordVPN app and ensure that they are linked through the NordLynx protocol, after which they can switch it on in the NordVPN app and connect up to 10 personal and/or 50 external devices. NordVPN is a subsidiary of Nord Security. Nord Security is confident in its ability to become an all-around cybersecurity solution. In addition to NordVPN, the cybersecurity firm offers three more market-leading products: NordPass, a next-generation password manager; NordLocker, an encrypted cloud storage solution; and NordLayer, an advanced network access security solution for organizations.
