Core network Software as a Service

The ready-to-go way to deliver the full potential of 5G and beyond  

Core SaaS can substantially enhance an existing installation by offering much simpler cost control, faster time to market and greater support for new service creation.

By transferring more of the core’s ownership and operation to Nokia we take on more responsibilities than it would in a traditional on-premise or off-premise deployment. This reduces your workload to run the physical data center and infrastructure, freeing you to focus on your business. You could also gain by not having to take on associated costs, such as electricity, cooling, security and operations.

What is Core SaaS?

 
Core SaaS provides a network template incorporating pre-integrated network functions, all delivered commissioned, operated and maintained by Nokia.

Configured and optimized for one or more use cases, Core SaaS can simplify integration and provide immediate capacity to address requirements from straightforward use cases to the most complex, hyper-connected 5G scenario.

  • Fulfills specific needs and use cases defined by the required outcome
  • Single subscription includes service, care, upgrades and embedded infrastructure
  • Standard and documented APIs for integration with CSP environment
