HP announced that Verizon, Vodafone and Mobile TeleSystems OJSC (MTS) have signed new technology agreements for the supply and delivery of industry standard servers.

Under the three-year agreements, HP will provide HP ProLiant servers based on the latest Intel processors, enabling Verizon, Vodafone and MTS to offer new services for their more than 490 million subscribers.

Verizon is a global leader in delivering broadband, video and other wireless and wireline communications services to mass market, business, government and wholesale customers. Vodafone is one the world’s largest mobile operators and has equity interests in more than 30 countries across five continents, and more than 40 partner markets worldwide. MTS is the leading telecom provider in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

Each company needed to find a solution that would allow them to further standardize x86 server data-center technologies at a group level, and to reduce costs and improve their total cost of ownership for servers.

This agreement has been reached through close collaboration between Verizon, Vodafone and MTS, enabling the companies to align on product standards and combine their purchasing volumes into one single vendor.
