Telenor to bring cloud-native core solution to Nordics

News

Telenor Group will deploy a new cloud-native core solution in Denmark, Sweden and Norway, as it looks to enhance the performance and reliability of its network.

The operator will implement Nokia's AirGile technology, including its data centre, cloud packet core, SDN solutions from Nuage Networks, management and orchestration software and third party security solutions.

The expectation is Telenor will be able to instantly adapt and scale services to meet the evolving demands of people and connected objects.

Thee deployment builds upon Telenor's deployment of Nokia's cloud-native core solution in Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Pakistan.

Morten Karlsen Sørby, EVP and Head of Telenor Group's Scandinavia cluster, said: "The transition to 5G will be driven by use-cases, allowing us to meet the needs of existing and new markets with innovative services.

"We are pleased to leverage Nokia's technology and services capabilities to help us transform our cloud networks in our Scandinavian markets and provide us with new efficiencies and capabilities as we make that journey."

Hilary Mine, Head of Nordics, Baltics and Benelux for Nokia said: "Nokia is able to draw on its extensive network and services expertise to deliver a cloud-native core network that will allow Telenor to speed service delivery and take advantage of new efficiencies in terms of scaling services and expanding capacity to meet demand. The Nokia cloud-native core will provide a solid foundation as Telenor evolves toward 5G."
