Virtualized Network Management System
NetAct’s virtualized platform enables efficient use of hardware. Being virtual also supports near-zero downtime during upgrades and improved availability, including advanced high availability solutions.
Offering the same features and functions as NetAct, the NetAct Cloud variant enables you to transform your data center while using your existing hardware and virtualization environment.
Nokia NetAct offers a clear way forward with:
- A uniform set of tools to manage radio and core networks, all accessed through a single view
- One system management of multi-technology networks based on industry standards and open architecture
- Automated processes to cut the cost of administration, maintenance and system integration
- Fast pass capability enabling new mobile network software to be deployed without Network Management System upgrades
NetAct has a proven track record with new technologies – it already handles the change from 3G to LTE and small cells and is continuously updated to be ready for the next wave of technology.
In June 2015 Nokia was awarded for “Innovation in Networking Technologies” for Nokia Telco Cloud Management. Comprising three main entities – Nokia Cloud Network Director, Nokia Cloud Application Manager and Nokia NetAct™ – it uses a modular, layered architecture based on the ETSI reference model and offers operators an end-to-end management solution.
