Latvian operator LMT has selected Nokia’s 5G Standalone (SA) Core to help deliver 5G services including network slicing, enhance its network experience and reliability, and more quickly monetise its network assets.
LMT already uses several Nokia solutions, including its Cloud Packet Core, Subscriber Data Management, and software solutions for 5G signalling and cloud management. The 5G SA Core will give LMT the speed, intelligence, scale, and security to deliver 5G services while cost-effectively managing its network with near zero-touch automation and adherence to Service Level Agreements.
Nokia’s 5G SA Core will also enable LMT to launch low-latency applications for enterprise customers and build new capabilities within the network, including network APIs and analytics. The deployment will also include the Nokia 7220 Interconnect Router for data centre fabric.
Gunars Danbergs, VP Technology, at LMT, said: “To better monetise our network assets and strengthen our network agility and reliability, it is crucial that LMT deploy 5G Standalone Core. With our strong existing partnership, Nokia 5G SA Core gives us the best tools and functions to move the LMT customer experience to another level and allow us to manage our network more predictably.”
