Ooredoo Algeria boosting network with Nokia’s cloud-native core

Ooredoo Algeria has deployed Nokia’s cloud-native core software to cost effectively strengthen its network performance and reliability.

With the deployment, Ooredoo Algeria aims to strategically position itself for the future and the launch of new services to meet customer needs by improving the digital ecosystem of the country.

By modernising its core to a more efficient cloud-based network with near-zero-touch automation capabilities and high-level operational efficiencies, Ooredoo Algeria can meet rising customer demand for much greater bandwidth capacity and service quality.

Nokia has previously provided Ooredoo Algeria with North Africa’s first cloud mobile gateway, as well as helping the operator to complete its migration from the legacy core to Nokia’s cloud-native core network technology.

Djillali Erouane, Technology Operational Director at Ooredoo Algeria, said: “With Nokia’s cloud-native core solution, we are able deliver the latest services, while better controlling our operational costs, and being positioned to deliver the type of innovation desired by our subscribers. Moving the core network to Nokia’s cloud solution can support industrial automation and the Internet of Things (IoT) when these technologies become available in the country.”

Raghav Sahgal, President of Cloud and Network Services at Nokia, said: “Moving its core network to the cloud gives Ooredoo Algeria tremendous automation capabilities in network management and the capacity to deliver a stronger customer experience in terms of both products and services.”
