Solution components

IP Video Services includes a complete portfolio of consulting, professional, managed and maintenance services.

Consulting services

To be competitive at a time of unprecedented business and technological change, pay TV operators need a trusted partner that helps them become more efficient and agile. Drawing on a global expertise in IPTV and video services, we provide unique consulting services to help service providers define their TV and video application solutions to capture high-value opportunities. As a trusted advisor, Nokia works with service providers to analyze, assess, and evolve their video network infrastructure and operations support systems to support new TV business opportunities, accelerate time to market, and drive down cost.

Systems integration services

Our systems integration services portfolio provides the market's most comprehensive planning, design, optimization, integration and deployment services for IP video solutions. We provide services for multi-vendor networks while drawing on deep knowledge of the latest video technologies.

Our integration teams have a strong global track record. They deliver specialized services designed for next-generation video networks in domains such as network design and planning, deployment, solution validation, testing, and performance management. In addition, they ensure timely deliveries by developing project plans and detailed schedules that outline critical path items, roles, responsibilities, and vendor involvement.

Managed services

We offer a managed service for our Velocix content delivery network (CDN) that ensures a fast time to market and reduced risks for service providers that are newcomers to the CDN business or that have smaller CDN deployments. This unique solution capitalizes on the expertise of the team that operated the Velocix global CDN. The Velocix team manages CDN operations and performance remotely 24x7, allowing service providers to quickly launch new services with expected quality of experience and concentrate on the business opportunities presented by the CDN.

Our managed service includes a Build-Operate-Transfer program that allows service providers to take control of the CDN when the time is right for them.

Maintenance services

Downtime is not an option for service providers seeking to capitalize on network opportunities. That's why our maintenance services are designed to optimize video network performance and ensure always-on networks. These services also help pay TV operators maximize infrastructure investment while also reducing total cost of ownership.

Our maintenance services portfolio includes technical support, repair and exchange, field maintenance, and proactive services. Together, these components deliver cost-effective and responsible backup support for technical queries and problem resolution while preventing faults from occurring in the first place.
