Nokia cloud – for a fully digitalized business
Digitalization is going global, spanning both the private and public sectors and changing all industries. The driving force of this transformation is the need for organizations to innovate more rapidly, operate more efficiently, make better use of available resources, become more flexible and improve profitability.
Everything cloud from Nokia
Nokia brings together every aspect of the cloud in an end-to-end portfolio matched to the needs of communication service providers (CSPs), enterprises, and the public sector. From the Nokia AirFrame data center solution to software-defined networking to programmable IP and optical transport solutions, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of application software. Our solutions enable lean operations and management through our operations support systems (OSS) and CloudBand management and orchestration (MANO) portfolio – all backed by a wide-range of expert cloud services and full data security.
Virtualized network functions (VNF) and shared data layer: Service providers can take advantage of a full range of VNFs, including the cloud packet core (CPC), virtualized voice solutions (VoWiFi, VoLTE, VoIP), virtualized service router (VSR), and Nokia AirScale Cloud RAN. Shorter innovation cycles and DevOps are enabled by moving to a cloud-native design that includes open APIs provided by Nokia VNFs and data exposure provided by the Nokia Shared Data Layer, a common data repository for storing all data required by the network functions.
Software-defined networking (SDN): Nokia SDN solutions include a network services platform that provides a unified approach to carrier SDN for IP and optical networks, the Nuage Networks virtualized services platform to enable cloud data center automation, and SD-WAN for dynamic enterprise services. In addition to SDN solutions, Nokia offers a complete suite of programmable IP routing and optical networking products.
Data center solutions: The Nokia AirFrame data center solution supports both telco and IT workloads. Available in a conventional rackmount format and on the highly efficient and scalable OCP-based form factor, AirFrame delivers high performance in centralized and distributed deployments. Nokia cloud design centers can also integrate third party components from selected partners or according to customer demand to ensure the required cloud performance.
Management and orchestration (MANO): Nokia CloudBand, complemented by our recent Comptel acquisition, simplifies the hosting, orchestration, automation, and management of VNFs and services. The scalable and flexible CloudBand portfolio helps to reduce time to revenue for new services, while automation and optimization simplify network operations. With CloudBand, operators benefit from rapid open-source innovation and can rely on a ready-to-deploy carrier-grade product. Nokia also provides security products and services covering all areas that can use network analytics from Deepfield, another recent acquisition.
Cloud wise services: To help service providers implement cloud capabilities throughout their organization, Nokia experts deliver a broad range of services from consulting, to design and build, to operations and maintenance of cloud platforms as well as cloud-based services.
