IP Migration for Defense

Migrate aging mission-critical networks to a unified IP-based broadband network


The Nokia IP Migration for Defense solution helps defense organizations and their forces migrate their ageing mission-critical networks to a new unified IP-based broadband network to support current and future applications without mission impacts.

Network transformation for information superiority

With legacy networks reaching end of life, it is imperative to migrate legacy critical applications to an IP-based network to avoid potential mission impacts. Nokia has the breadth of expertise to seamlessly migrate to next-generation smart WAN with full legacy interoperability, ensuring your mission-critical operations are uninterrupted.

TDM migration for defense

The solution offers a reliable, secure, converged, end-to-end communication network infrastructure that incorporates industry-leading IP/MPLS, optics, microwave, fixed access, and network and service management products.

The Nokia Critical WAN infrastructure solution provides convergence, simplified operations, a quality of service guarantee for mission-critical applications, and smooth migration from legacy to all-packet networks.
