Altiplano Access Controller

Analytics and automation for your broadband network

The heart of Nokia’s SDAN solution is the Altiplano Access Controller. This is a network management application with a simple unified interface to visualize, optimize, and enhance the fixed access network, supporting SDN-native, legacy and third-party equipment.

Altiplano offers a single view to manage fixed services, leveraging zero-touch operations, powerful network life-cycle management and closed-loop automation. Leveraging intent-based policies and validated blueprints, this approach drives better outcomes with self-aware capabilities that continuously monitor and self-adjust to maintain the intended network state.  

The cloud-native platform delivers powerful automation tools and flexible service programming via open interfaces. The open modular architecture allows the introduction of new network capabilities and integrates easily with OSS/BSS, IT and cloud platforms.

Master your broadband complexity now and in the future

Altiplano offers a complete suite of network management functions as well as SDN control to run a broadband network. The flexibility allows operators to deploy the management and control solution they need today and offers a path to expand the platform as new requirements arise. Altiplano also minimizes vendor lock-in and/or vendor specific (proprietary) integrations and costs.
