Software-defined access networks (SDAN) bring flexible cloud attributes to the network such as IT-style programming, fast feature delivery, quick adjustments and automation. So, moving to SDN and cloud is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for network builders. Nokia helps broadband builders to accelerate into the cloud era with the Altiplano platform. Now, the company launched Cloud Acceleration Services, helping to build and maintain personalized SDN solutions.
A full-featured package and open platform
Nokia Cloud Acceleration Services aim to simplify the network evolution by applying a three-step approach that allows operators to define the optimal path and pace towards open disaggregated access solutions. These three steps are:
- Business and technology consulting services and modeling tools help quantify the operator specific SDAN benefits and use cases.
- System integration, automated testing services and key assets like Nokia SDAN Multivendor Integration Centers and Migration Operations Centers bring the customized SDAN solution from the drawing board into reality.
- The cloud-native capabilities of the Nokia Altiplano platform, combined with Nokia’s System Integration approach and Nokia DevOps Automation Platform help operators to test and launch new features and services on the market, faster.
Nokia’s Altiplano Developer Portal includes a software development kit (SDK) to easily integrate and fully control device and application connectivity. Additionally, this SDK supports the development of custom solutions that leverage both Nokia and third-party elements.
Sandra Motley, President Fixed Networks, Nokia, said,
“Our ambition is to bring cloud-based access to operators and be the partner of choice for system integration and advanced automation. We have the platform, the ecosystem and the expertise to help operators deploy disaggregated access networks. In fact, we already have more than 250 cloud-ready customer deployments in place around the world.”
