Telecom giant Nokia and Telenor Group have struck a strategic alliance to deploy a cloud-native solution based on the former’s AirGile technology across Denmark, Sweden and Norway. With this deal, the alliance will leverage AirFrame Datacenter and Cloud Packet Core to enhance performance, reliability and drive mobile broadband agility for users of 5G.

Morten Karlsen Sørby, EVP and head of Telenor Group’s Scandinavia cluster believes that the transition of 5G will be driven by use-cases, allowing players like Telenor to meet the requirements of various markets. He also says that as a company, they are pleased with the alliance and are looking forward to working with Nokia and provide users with new capabilities.
According to Nokia, drawing on an extensive network to provide a cloud-native solution is possible since they can leverage new efficiencies when it comes to scaling. They also claim that enterprises will be able to fully take advantage of 5G with an environment that is built on the foundation of the cloud.
It will be interesting to see how Telenor makes the most of this deal with Nokia, following the launch of AirFrame for cloud servers.
