Finnish telecom giant Nokia has launched three professional services that would enable the telecom service providers to launch cloud-based enterprise services through its data center. These services aim to help telecoms operators re-shape their people and processes for the new cloud-centric communication industry.
The first launch is a data center service capable of creating a multi-vendor cloud infrastructure. For the purpose, Nokia is setting up a design center in UK. The company has taken partnership and support from delivery centers across the globe to enrich its delivery environment. The partnership with Sanmina brings in IT expertise and global supply chain capabilities to the service. In order to ensure the service to be cost effective and rapid, Nokia has automated the testing and deployment. The data center would address the computation, storage and network requirements of a cloud operator.
The second service is a Nokia Cloud Transformation Consulting, which would assist the telecom operators in setting up cloud opportunities. It would provide the recommendations on architecture, tools and operational changes to operators enabling them to seamlessly transform to telco cloud environment.
The third service is Managed Cloud Operations suitable for hybrid operations across hardware, cloudware and application layer management. In a build-operate-transfer mode, Nokia experts provide the skills, tools, and processes to speed up operational maturity for hybrid operations using a managed model.
“As an end-to-end telco cloud solutions provider, we go beyond just offering hardware and software. The company has made a significant investment to ensure that our new Data Center services provide a strong foundation for the cloud. Our Cloud Transformation Consulting services help operators take informed steps towards a telco cloud environment. We offer the right telco expertise and are committed to being a trusted partner for operators as they look to adopt the telco cloud to help them create competitive advantages in terms of agility and costs,” elucidated Igor Leprince, Executive Vice President, Global Services at Nokia.
