Tele2 deploys Nokia’s cloud core in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia

Tele2 implementing Nokia’s distributed cloud core in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia

Tele2 has selected Nokia to deploy its Standalone (SA) 5G Core and Voice over 5G (Vo5G) to enhance its cloud infrastructure and improve data and voice connectivity for subscribers in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.

Nokia core offers near zero-touch automation capabilities that drive greater scale and reliability, allowing Tele2 to cost-effectively lay the foundation for 5G and enable faster time to market with new services. Nokia’s open architecture also provides the flexibility to be responsive to market demands while controlling costs at a time of growing network complexity.

As part of Tele2’s core evolution, Nokia will deploy its Cloud Packet Core products to support both 4G and 5G core network functions and enhance network scale, performance and reliability. Nokia’s enhancements include deploying new Subscriber Data Management software to streamline Tele2’s network operations.

To support Tele2’s strategy of delivering Voice over 5G (Vo5G), Nokia will supply Vo5G services to support connectivity and reduce operating expenses for both 5G and 4G. As part of the core transformation partnership, Nokia will deploy cloud and network management products from its CloudBand, Network Services Platform (NSP) and NetAct product portfolios to further secure, automate and scale network management operations.

Deployment is expected to start in 2021.
