Nokia cloud-native software platform available on Amazon Web Services

February 4, 2020

All new Nokia Software cloud-native network functions and applications moving forward will be available on AWS upon release. Development comes as more Communications Service Providers embrace public cloud to achieve faster and more cost-efficient service delivery

18 November 2019

Espoo, Finland – Nokia today announced that its Common Software Foundation platform now supports Amazon Web Services (AWS). The result offers communication service providers (CSPs) additional deployment choice and faster time to service when rolling out new 5G or digital services.

The announcement, which builds on an existing relationship with AWS, marks the next step in Nokia’s move to deliver cloud-native network functions and applications, enabled by the company’s Common Software Foundation (CSF), which makes Nokia’s software products easier to deploy, integrate, use and service. 

With many Nokia-powered 5G networks now live in lead markets like the US, Japan and South Korea, CSPs are planning public cloud options to enhance their service offering and delivery. AWS provides a strong ability of extending its cloud programming model to CSPs’ premises, thus offering elasticity, scalability, service richness and security across the telecom network.
