Nokia Corporation last week unveiled its cloud-native Digital Operations Center software, marking its first network slice management product. The new solution is aimed at boosting communication service providers’ revenue-generating capabilities with a platform that optimally manages 5G slice-based services. It is expected to be available by the end of 2020.
The company’s Digital Operations Center provides an automated process to deploy and operate network slices across multi-vendor, multi-domain and multi-technology environments. It is built in a modular form that includes the Nokia Orchestration Center and Nokia Assurance Center. Nokia’s solution enables operators to deliver network slices through closed-loop automation. Also, it helps operators adhere to Service Level Agreements as they expand into vertical industries.
With the help of this, carriers can manage the full-service lifecycle to drive the most optimized use of infrastructure resources while automating service delivery. Moreover, the Digital Operations Center is built on Nokia’s Common Software Foundation that enables customers to use their choice of deployment strategies. Nokia is helping Singtel, a major telco operating in Singapore, trial its Network as a Service platform.
The Finland-based telecom gear maker’s end-to-end portfolio includes products and services for every part of a network, which helps operators enable key 5G capabilities such as network slicing, distributed cloud and industrial IoT. It facilitates customers to move from an economy-of-scale network operating model to demand-driven operations by offering easy programmability and automation.
