Nokia today (Feb 26) announced the launch of new end-to-end slicing network functionality for 4G and 5G New Radio (NR). Company is the first vendor to offer this capability. The solution will support connectivity from 4G and 5G devices over the sliced network to applications running in private and public clouds and will be available this summer. Nokia’s slicing solution is being developed in collaboration with leading operators A1 and Telia.
As revealed in the official press release Nokia’s new solution enables operators to start building their network slicing business today with LTE and 5G NR. The slicing capability can be deployed via a software upgrade into existing LTE and 5G non-standalone (NSA) networks and subsequently 5G standalone (SA) networks. The slicing continuity between LTE and 5G NR allows operators to maximize their network coverage for new mobile connectivity services.
Tommi Uitto, President of Mobile Networks, Nokia, said :
“Working closely with our customers to develop new technologies and business opportunities is hugely important to Nokia. 4G/5G slicing enables multiple new use cases which operators can start building now to create new revenue streams.”
