Nokia is a forerunner in the telco cloud. We have developed and tested virtualized network elements and cloud application management with operators and shown that cloud technology is ready for commercial deployment. Our core software and telco cloud management systems are hardware-independent and cloud platform agnostic, allowing you to take full advantage of the cloud.
