Nokia to Provide Tele2’s Distributed Cloud Core across European Opcos

Tele2 chooses Nokia to deploy standalone (SA) 5G Core and Voice over 5G (Vo5G) to improve its cloud infrastructure, data and voice connectivity in Sweden, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.

Nokia says its core offers near zero-touch automation that drives greater scale and reliability, allowing Tele2 to lay the foundation for 5G and enable faster time to market. The vendor also says its architecture provides the flexibility to be responsive to market demands while controlling costs.

As part of Tele2’s core evolution, Nokia will deploy its cloud packet core products to support 4G and 5G core network functions and improve network scale, performance and reliability. Improvements include new subscriber data management software to help streamline Tele2’s network operations.

Nokia also will deploy cloud and network management products from its CloudBand, Network Services Platform and NetAct product portfolios to help secure, automate and scale network management operations.

CloudBand is a vendor-agnostic, multi-technology and multi-domain platform, so Tele2 will be able to integrate existing and new solutions. The deployment will also include Nokia’s NetGuard Security products.
