Telia Selects Nokia's Cloud-Native Packet Core Solution

By Chrissie Cluney March 07, 2018

Telia Company chose Nokia's cloud packet core solution to profitably deliver enhanced mobile broadband. The solution also provides the massively scalable platform, which is required as part of the selecting company’s Next Generation Core.

Nokia's AirGile cloud-native is designed to enable Telia Company to benefit from a full-cloud architecture. This will permit it to streamline engineering and operations to run on a common infrastructure across all six countries in which it operates.

Nokia will contribute to Telia's ambition for competitive operations, as it lowers the cost of introducing and operating data services. This will majorly accelerate time-to-market for differentiated services and expanding business productivity.

"There is tremendous potential with the continued growth of mobile broadband, and with new services and 5G in the near future. To take advantage of these opportunities, Telia must deploy a new generation cloud-native packet core that is able to connect to a greater variety of devices and deliver a broader range of services over multiple access technologies. Nokia uniquely combines field-proven cloud-native software, cloud technologies and mobile and IP routing expertise to help Telia speed up service delivery, deliver greater scale and capacity and operate its network more efficiently. Plus, because our cloud packet core is built on our robust, field proven router software (SROS), it provides Telia with a solid foundational framework for the evolution of its 4G and the path forward to 5G," said Sri Reddy, senior vice president, IP and Optical business, Nokia.

Telia Company will evolve their physical common multi-country evolved packet core to a common cloud native solution on a shared cloud infrastructure. Nokia's industry leading and field-proven cloud-native packet core includes its Cloud Mobility Manager and Cloud Mobile Gateway. These features make it a key enabler in this transformation. Nokia will begin the deployment of Telia's new core network in multiple data center locations across the company's operations.

As part of its AirGile cloud-native core portfolio, Nokia's packet core design provides the reliability, scalability, flexibility and performance Telia requires to meet the networking requirements and economics for a diverse and demanding range of digital services and applications for consumers and enterprises. The Nokia solution anchors multi-technology access, which spans across wireless licensed, shared, unlicensed spectrum and fixed network technologies, and delivers automated cloud networking with dynamic lifecycle management capabilities.

These capabilities from Nokia will assist Telia to improve service delivery, agility and operational efficiency for its mobile customers.
