Nokia Educational Series - Evolution of voice from VOLTE to 5G
23 January 2019
The evolution of voice from circuit to voice over VoLTE requires the implementation of IMS. What happens to voice with the introduction of 5G? Happily, IMS is advertised to be “access transparent” so no big deal, right? Or is it? The reality isn’t quite as clean as the advertising might lead you to believe.
In this Webinar we will discover the evolution from a VoLTE network to a Voice over 5G network and the interim steps and the migration period it will require.
Join us to discuss some of those special cases and migration steps in this webinar.
Malware in IoT, Crypto-coins & Smart Devices - Prevention and Appropriate Action
06 December 2018
Malware continues to be a problem, particularly in the case of gaining visibility into incidents, which leaves you blind to attack.

Next generation TV: is ABR ready for the IP switchover?
March 30, 2017 / Nokia, DTVE, CTOi Consulting
IP is fast becoming the universal technology to enable the delivery of video. Broadcasters and TV operators are deploying next generation TV platforms to maximize operational efficiency and deliver a seamless experience to the consumers across all their devices.
Adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming has become a key building block for these platforms as multiscreen and non-linear viewing grow, but is it robust enough to supersede other technologies and maintain or even exceed the quality of experience on the main screen in the living room?
This webinar will try to answer the following questions:
- When can we expect IP to replace legacy broadcast TV mechanisms?
- What are the benefits of moving to IP for TV operators and their customers?
- What ingredients make a successful IP transformation?
- Can ABR be the universal streaming technology for TV delivery?
New Frontiers in C-RAN Fronthaul: to CPRI, or to not CPRI?
March 28, 2017 / IHS Markit, Anritsu, Fujitsu & Nokia
Fronthaul has a fundamental role in the development of radio access networks (RANs), from centralized RANs to cloud RANs and beyond, but what are the challenges of moving to such C-RANs? And while vendors have leaned toward the Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) standard for fronthaul connections, CPRI-based links may not be the right fit as the 5G network of cloud-optimized RAN evolves.
How does CPRI relate to fronthaul technologies such as WDM and optical Ethernet; and what alternative standards are emerging? How can fronthaul adapt to the demands of co-existing 4G and 5G networks; and what impact do technology choices have on deployment applications and new service opportunities?
Cloud-Native Architectures Will Be Key to 5G NG Core
March 23, 2017
Speakers: Gabriel Brown, Principal Analyst - Wireless Data Services & LTE, Heavy Reading
Vinai Sirkey, Vice President, Business Development, Mobile Core, Nokia
Nick Cadwgan, Director IP Mobile Network Marketing, Nokia
The networking industry is pushing the pace of 5G development. Service providers, and other organizations in the enterprise and public sector, must then determine how best to support their current or planned mobile broadband and IoT/MTC services while providing a path to 5G. The evolution of today’s network core will be central to this transformation. In this webinar, Heavy Reading’s Gabriel Brown, along with representatives from Nokia, will discuss the proposed 5G NGC functional architectures being proposed in 3GPP standards. It will identify why a ‘cloud-native’ packet core architecture is a requirement not only for future 5G services, but for existing or planned 4G mobile broadband and IoT/MTC services as well.
