IP Migration for Defense

The Nokia IP Migration for Defense solution helps armies and ministries of defense (MoD) migrate their aging networks to a new unified IP broadband network to support current and future applications and services. This solution consists of:

  • Critical WAN Infrastructure (CWI)

The solution uses commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) and standard technologies to reduce costs, while assuring the level of scalability, reliability, resiliency and security that military solutions require. It is the foundation for supporting real-time operational communications, military applications, and future broadband applications to help MoDs deliver their missions.



The solution offers a reliable, secure, converged, end-to-end communication network infrastructure that incorporates industry-leading IP/MPLS, optics, microwave, fixed access, and network and service management products. The Nokia Critical WAN infrastructure solution provides convergence, simplified operations, a quality of service guarantee for mission-critical applications, and smooth migration from legacy to all-packet networks.

Nokia's solution relies on its flagship IP routing, microwave, and transport portfolio to support the IP Migration for Defense solution. This portfolio includes:


Reduce costs

  • With a converged packet-based infrastructure moving away from a costly and heterogeneous network
  • With a unified and simplified network management

Guarantee the security and integrity

  • Network fully secured and resilient by design
  • Full set of cyber security services

Enhance interoperability and flexibility
