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.
Developed around cloud-native and DevOps principles, Nokia’s 5G Core will automate the lifecycle management of SoftBank’s networks, as well as enable continuous software delivery and integration, said Nokia.
India’s telecom sector, in the efforts of enabling policies including more quantum of the spectrum, is set to establish new benchmarks in the next-generation network deployments and service delivery.
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.
