Upgrade and simplify your strategic network with a mission-critical IP WAN

To support new IP-based military applications, defense strategic networks need to evolve to all IP. Combining leading IP/MPLS, packet microwave, and optical transport technologies, Nokia provides a resilient, secure, converged mission-critical strategic communications WAN solution. It lets you benefit from the latest communications advances — and cut network OPEX — without compromising security.

Challenge: Inefficiencies of legacy network architectures

Existing defense backbone networks often combine multiple, siloed networks built with differing technologies, equipment, and management systems. Many of them are also reaching technology end-of-life, making them hard to maintain. As a result, they’re inefficient, costly to operate, and don’t scale for upcoming data-intensive services.

Solution: Modernize communications with a strategic IP WAN solution

Nokia can help you build a resilient, converged, multi-services strategic network that supports both legacy and new IP-based applications. Our strategic WAN for defense solution offers highly reliable performance, mission-critical survivability, and cost-effective operations, along with seamless support for today’s most powerful data and video applications.
