At HUAWEI CONNECT 2018 in Shanghai, T-Systems and Huawei announce the launch of the Private Link Access Service (PLAS).

PLAS is a private link access service for enterprises on the Open Telekom Cloud (OTC). PLAS will enable users of the OTC to use a dedicated and non-shared connection from their on-premise-networks towards Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) on the public cloud platform.

Furthermore, PLAS allows layer-2 or layer-3 network connection between OTC and any network provider who terminates in OTC. The PLAS connection will be set-up between an NSP’s (Network service provider’s) network and the Direct Connect gateway (PLGW), which helps reduce network latency and provides more stable, secure network experience than internet connections.

Huawei contributes hardware, software and solution expertise from China, T-Systems offers the necessary cloud expertise, the network and the certified German cloud data center. This partnership enables T-Systems to underpin their vendor independence and offer IT solutions at the best price, with ideal service and optimum quality.

The companies thus offer customers the best possible transformation of their IT into the cloud, both in terms of technology and end-to-end service responsibility.

T-Systems Vice President Open Telekom Cloud Andreas Falkner says: “With the launch of the new PLAS Feature we will combine the strength of both parties and offer a full end-2-end solution to our customers. Combining the secure network access to the already available Open Telekom Cloud ensures a full e2e quality and security.”

Huawei President of Deutsche Telekom Key Account, Lin Baifeng says: “The successful launch of PLAS shows that the cooperation of two strong partners can bring real competitive advantages and benefits to our customers.”
