05:39 EDTVIVHY, TEF, TITelefonica bids EUR 6.7B for Vivendi's Global Village Telecom
Telefonica S.A. (TEF) said it has submitted an offer to Vivendi (VIVHY) for the combination of Telefonica Brasil and Global Village Telecom, which includes a cash consideration of 11,962 million Brazilian Reais and newly issued shares representing 12% of the share capital of the new Telefonica Brasil, after its combination with GVT. Considering the current market price of Telefónica Brasil the offer amounts to a total of EUR 6.7B euros. The cash consideration would be financed via a capital increase at Telefonica Brasil subscribed by Telefonica S.A. in proportion to its current stake, whose contribution will be funded, in turn, via a capital increase. The offer envisages that, should Vivendi be interested in acquiring a stable stake in Telecom Italia (TI), Telefonica could offer Vivendi the acquisition, in cash, of up to 1,110M ordinary shares of Telecom Italia, currently representing a stake of 8,3% of the Telecom Italia voting share capital. The transfer of the shares would take place at closing of the transaction between Vivendi and Telefonica Brasil. According to the terms of the offer, it expires on September 3, unless it is previously accepted by Vivendi, S.A., or if bidders decide to extend the offer’s validity period.

05:05 EDTTEFTelefonica collaborates with Brocade, Cyan, Intel, Red Hat
Telefónica (TEF) announced that it has presented an end-to-end network-functions virtualization, or NFV, instantiation demonstration in collaboration with Brocade (BRCD), Cyan (CYNI), Intel (INTC) and Red Hat (RHT) at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona. The demo uses the network virtualization framework based on the ETSI ISG NFV approach and developed by the Telefónica NFV Reference Lab. It showcases a Brocade VNF service chain deployed using standard Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications, or TOSCA, information models through the enhanced Cyan Blue Planet NFV Orchestration engine onto a network virtual function infrastructure. The goal of the demo is to demonstrate how an advanced and multi-vendor implementation of the ETSI ISG NFV architecture with intelligent orchestration of resources is capable of providing carrier-grade performance, while a regular cloud infrastructure is insufficient. In this collaboration, Cyan’s Blue Planet SDN and NFV platform is used as the NFV service orchestrator, the Brocade Vyatta 5600 vRouter is used as the VNF and Telefónica’s VIM is providing the virtual infrastructure manager role, with all running on NFV hardware infrastructure utilizing Intel processors.
