Nokia announces new SaaS services

Nokia has announced two new software-as-a-service (SaaS) services in security and analytics, as part of its strategy to give communication service providers and enterprises a more flexible and cost-effective way of servicing their customers.

The new services follow Nokia’s recent launch into SaaS to help CSPs and enterprises shift to subscription-based software and away from customised on-premise software.

Nokia’s iSIM Secure Connect is designed to enable CSPs and enterprises to securely manage machine-to-machine and consumer device subscriptions for eSIM- and iSIM-enabled devices.

Nokia AVA NWDAF enhances network operations with AI/ML driven closed-loop automation. The offering is designed to improve customer experience, and drive new sources of revenue.

Karl Whitelock, research vice president, communications service provider operations and monetisation at IDC, explained, “To fully tap the wealth of opportunities that advanced 5G services offer, communication service providers and enterprises need new deployment models that enable faster service delivery to customers in a smarter, more cost-effective manner. Solution suppliers such as Nokia with its new SaaS security and analytics services, are turning to SaaS as a means for helping the telecom space modernise and monetise investments faster.” 

 

Raghav Sahgal, president of cloud and network services at Nokia, added, “Adopting Nokia AVA NWDAF and iSIM Secure Connect through the SaaS model will greatly improve the time-to-value that CSPs and enterprises can realise by having on-demand access to services. These latest Nokia SaaS services strengthen our leadership position in helping our customers change the very foundation of how our industry does business.”
