New demands on mobile transport
People expect amazing content and speed on their devices. Cloud-based applications and the Internet of Things (IoT) are putting tremendous demands on networks.
To deliver flawless services, your mobile backhaul network needs high bandwidth, low latency, and sophisticated quality of service capabilities. It must provide dynamic interconnectivity to support new architectures, such as centralized and cloud RAN, distributed and cloud mobile core, and Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC).
With critical low-latency applications such as autonomous vehicles riding on it, your network needs a new level of resilience and security. You need insight-driven automation that can secure your network, make it more efficient, and make it easier to deploy new services.
Paving the way to the 5G era
5G is coming fast. Standards are being released and trials are underway. Our IP Anyhaul solution provides future-ready IP routing that puts you on the path to 5G. Scalable and compatible, it extends your infrastructure investment and allows you to be one of the first to support ultra-broadband connectivity and IoT applications.
We offer a wide range of products to accommodate diverse architectures and deployment scenarios. All our products use the common SR OS software base to provide a rich service suite with a uniform end-to-end operational model.
Managed by our Network Services Platform, the IP Anyhaul solution brings you the benefits of SDN-automated provisioning, optimization, and assurance. These capabilities significantly improve your ability to rapidly address changing market requirements and deliver premium broadband services.
What analysts are saying
"As networks evolve toward cloud-based, software-mediated platforms, the architectural requirements of network infrastructure are changing, requiring programmable, flexible, and dynamic attributes. Nokia's IP 'anyhaul' approach, supported by an end-to-end portfolio, not only addresses the need for programmable, flexible, and dynamic data transport across any domain, but also is optimized to support the network requirements that 5G will bring."
— Patrick Filkins, Telecom Analyst, Technology Business Research Inc.
"As we progress towards 5G, we are witnessing dramatic changes across the RAN, packet core and mobile cloud environments. These changes clearly place increased pressure on the transport network that will prove critical to user experience and operator success.
With a refreshing perspective on the evolution of mobile transport, Nokia’s IP mobile anyhaul is addressing the most compelling mobile transport issues of today while getting the mobile transport network ready for 5G."
