Mission-critical WAN for industries

Build a WAN for your current and emerging communications

Nokia mission-critical WAN solutions help you build a secure, reliable, scalable, and flexible communications infrastructure to serve your vital operations and business services.

Our WAN infrastructure lets you converge all application traffic on one network with assured QoS and advanced security. It can help you reduce OPEX, preserve the integrity of your legacy communications applications, and support new applications.

We provide WAN solutions for organizations in many industries, including transportation, energy, government, healthcare, finance, education, and other enterprises. We can help you meet essential communications and business needs with a WAN that combines the best of IP/MPLS, optical, and microwave technologies.

ConvergenceTo deliver multiple services over one network

Deterministic QOSTo ensure necessary network and application performance

Bridging past to futureTo support IP, Ethernet and legacy TDM

Rigorous securityTo safeguard traffic and the network

High availabilityTo support mission critical applications without interruptions

Simplified managementTo enable efficient operations

Two examples among many from our WAN portfolio

Mission-critical WAN for power utilities
Improve grid control and oversight, and enable smart grid applications by transitioning to a utility-grade IP/MPLS and packet optical network.

Mission-critical transmission networks for railways
Support critical applications and passenger services with a converged network based on IP/MPLS, packet optical and microwave technologies.
