IMC 2020: Time To Move To 5G Commercial Deployments, Not Trials, Says Nokia


Finnish telecoms gear maker Nokia Tuesday said its 5G Core software has been selected by the Japanese conglomerate SoftBank Corp to enable the launch of SoftBank’s standalone (SA) 5G services. The launch of 5G services would enable SoftBank to cater to consumer and enterprise use cases such as VR/AR/MR, fixed wireless access, video surveillance, and analytics, cloud robotics and connected vehicles with a standalone 5G Core in global markets, as per an official statement.

Under the terms of the deal, Nokia will supply its Cloud Mobility Manager and Cloud Mobile Gateway products to SoftBank. Additionally, Nokia will also provide products such as Subscriber Data Management with Shared Data Layer, and a cloud-native database accessible via industry-standard protocols. “We are pleased to be expanding our relationship with Nokia as we enable fast and reliable 5G service for our subscribers. This 5G core solution will catapult us into the next phase of our 5G transition,” said Senior Vice President, CIO of SoftBank, Keiichi Makizono.

“Nokia 5G Core’s near-zero-touch automation capabilities, high-level operational efficiencies, scale, and performance will help SoftBank deliver advanced services and experience, and boost network reliability. This is a tremendous way to be expanding Nokia’s long-standing relationship with SoftBank,” said Head of Market Unit Japan, Nokia, John Lancaster-Lennox.
