Three UK to use Nokia’s cloud native core network to improve customer service

The new cloud network can help in scaling up voice and data services, while preparing for IoT and 5G.

By CBR Staff Writer

Three UK has selected Nokia to deploy its next generation cloud native core network which will help it in scaling up its network to effectively respond to dynamic customer demand.

The new network model is expected to add flexibility in offering data and voice services to Three’s customers, while preparing it for IoT and 5G.

Nokia said that it will apply cloud native principles into its cloud software design and it can enable Three to benefit from massive scalability and reliability.

The next generation cloud native core network can provide high quality service experience to its customers even in very busy locations, while the demand for VoLTE and high-definition video continues to grow.

Deployment of Three UK’s new core network in multiple data centre locations throughout the year

According to Nokia, by using the cloud platform, Three can increase its efficiency and also benefit from its technical and service capabilities, including the services offered by the Global Cloud Design Center opened in the UK, last September.

The deployment will include Nokia’s AirFrame data centre, IP routing and network management, Nokia CloudBand, Nuage Networks software defined networking, evolved packet core, IMS, TAS, SBC, Shared Data Layer and security solutions.

Nokia UK & Ireland head Cormac Whelan said: “This project highlights the breadth of Nokia’s capabilities in technology and services, as well as our extensive ecosystem of cloud technology partners.

“I’m particularly proud of the role our new Global Cloud Design Center has played in first demonstrating the potential of an integrated cloud native core to Three, prior to working with the customer to tailor the design and delivery of a solution to meet its needs.”
