Network Operations Master
Tame the complexity of 5G
Digital transformation and complexity
5G adds new layers of technical complexity to the network and the number of physical and virtual network elements is growing. The pressure on network operations teams to deliver on the promised service agility, especially around network slicing, is growing.
Communication service providers (CSPs) need a simple and flexible network management solution that helps them meet customer expectations and demands. Nokia Network Operations Master is a new software based on cloud-native architecture for managing 4G and 5G radio and core network domains.
Programmability and SW-driven network management
Programmable networks can facilitate the required speed and flexibility thanks to their software-centric automation approach. Programmability doesn’t just automate series of individual tasks but based on a defined goal it allows the software to find a suitable path to execute complex tasks and make configuration changes.
Programmability is at the heart of Nokia Network Operations Master. It allows communication service providers to simplify and automate operational workflows and improve their operational efficiency. Further, only the most complex or unknown issues are escalated for human trouble-shooting, reducing workloads and allowing operation centers to concentrate on the most critical network events.
Continuous software delivery
Network Operations Master is based on microservices that can be upgraded and scaled up independently. This ensures upgrades cause near zero downtime and gives the whole solution great resilience.
Network Operations Master is built on Nokia’s cloud-native Common Software Foundation (CSF) designed to deliver applications that are hardware- and vendor-agnostic, and easy to deploy, integrate, use and upgrade.

Intelligent alarm correlation
With thousands of network alarms every day and no easy way to identify root causes or determine which required immediate attention and which could be ignored, Vodafone Germany needs some kind of automated support for its engineers.
This case study looks at how Nokia helps Vodafone Germany streamline its fault monitoring and resolution systems with intelligent alarm correlation.
Speed, flexibility and growth delivered for your radio access network
The increasing network complexity calls for a new way of operations that not only meets the growing demand for faster speed of reaction to customer needs, but also does it cost effectively. Reliable and seamless network operation is essential and can only be realistically achieved by intelligent, interconnected management of the network domains. In this paper, we describe the new approach to radio access management.
