At Nokia booth "C2-C3 Level 0" the following 2 demos can be booked with our team of experts using the registration tool:

  • Insight-driven microwave transport: The increasing diversity and dynamics introduced by telco cloud and 5G make underlying transport networks evermore complex to manage. Networks that serve us well today and tomorrow must support the agility and responsiveness to address those new needs. This demo describes, through a “dense city” use case, how a programmable microwave transport can dynamically adapt to fast-changing conditions based on real-time traffic visibility and control. In this solution, Nokia Deepfield builds the insight on IP packets and triggers Nokia NSP which provides the SDN control to the programmable Nokia Wavence microwave transport. This approach brings intelligence in the network, hence allowing a more efficient traffic management and lower operational costs.
  • Catalogue driven orchestration and assurance of SDWAN services: In this demo we will show how we can orchestrate the automated delivery and assurance of different vCPE models for SDWAN services. The demonstration will highlight the integration between Comptel FlowOne, CloudBand and Nuage VNS and Nokia NSP.  It will demonstrate the ability to automate the creation of overlay and underlay network paths including the lifecycle management and chaining of VNF’s no matter where they are located. Different CPE deployment models (thick and thin) will be highlighted as well as connections to public or private data centres.  The demo will highlight automated order fulfillment and how customers orders can be received via a portal or CRM system to speed service requests and remove errors in customer order entry.
  • Join demo with Intel: “SDWAN: Branch in a box”
    Software Defined Networking (SDN) increases enterprise IT agility with policy-based automation for the cloud and the WAN. The Nuage Networks SD-WAN solution brings agility and flexibility to the enterprise wide area network, just like to the cloud. Nokia is the only vendor that lets you use the same SDN policy controller across the datacenter and WAN. The demo will show the flexible branch capabilities where VNFs can be inserted on the NSG for local consumption.

Solutions experts will be on site at Nokia booth to answer all questions and discuss specific requirements and will be able to host in-depth product and solution presentations.

Do not hesitate to stop by our booth to meet and discuss with our experts and to contact your Nokia sales if you would like to schedule meetings.
