Nokia said it’s launching new services to help operators prioritize their 5G investments and bring 5G-based services to market faster. Nokia is introducing additions to its 5G Acceleration Services, including a disruptive, use case-driven concept - Nokia 5G Digital Design - as well as Cross-Domain Architecture and Site Evolution Services to smooth the rollout of 5G networks. These services will deliver lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and speed up time-to-market by several months.
In addition to launching three new services, Nokia is expanding its 5G portfolio by introducing full Software Defined Network and virtual private networks functionalities within the Nokia Wavence microwave transmission system. This will enable the creation and dynamic management of separated network slices for user groups in microwave segments in a 5G network.
