Enel beyond the cloud: more than a thousand sites are connected via one of the world’s largest network virtualization projects

The initiative forms part of Enel’s broader strategic program Beyond Cloud Computing, or BCC, in which software-defined WAN (“Wide Area Network” technology that’s capable of optimizing cloud-based access to applications and the use of connectivity) and edge computing solutions are merged to create a telecommunications architecture that pursues operational excellence through an emphasis on process digitalization. This is one of the world’s largest business telecommunications network virtualization initiatives, and it has accelerated the Group’s digital transformation process.

The program, which was created and developed in Italy by Enel with Accenture, Cisco and Sirti, has reduced operating costs while significantly increasing the agility of corporate infrastructure. It has connected more than 1,000 sites across three continents and more than 10 countries (Italy, Spain, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Russia, and several North American sites). Enel has thus greatly reduced its go-to-market times, optimized management costs by streamlining its systems, and cut operating costs, making it possible, for example, to handle maintenance operations remotely. Furthermore, Enel can upgrade its network with innovative technologies such as IoT, and augmented and virtual reality to facilitate the control, management and maintenance of its assets distributed throughout the country. The new infrastructure’s agility and capabilities played a key role in handling disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Enel quickly implemented remote working solutions for more than 37,000 people, enabling them to access the Company’s applications and work in safety.
