5G Core

Build a cloud-native 5G Core, to innovate, execute, and pivot to new opportunities

Communications Service Providers (CSPs) and Enterprises often struggle with the complexity created by successive mobility generations, packetization, and cloud. Their challenges include:

How to profit from opportunity with a flexible core that embraces openness and the new ecosystem that will spring from the 5G revolution.

How to deploy without limits onto bare metal or any cloud, move functions to where they are best placed, and adopt slicing to build virtual networks with finely tuned SLAs.

How to evolve with confidence for lowest possible risk while maintaining reliability and protecting their brand value, even as they proceed to disrupt the market with innovative offers.


Nokia Universal Adaptive Core is built from the ground up using cloud-native technology and equipped with extreme automation. It can help you resolve your network core’s challenges.

First, it is a core that is done right: it is cloud-native and infrastructure-agnostic by design. Deploy it on any cloud – private or public, centralized or distributed, with an optimized performance footprint for any deployment model.

Second, it is done now: it simplifies the complexity with the latest technology to boost the top line and lower costs. Open and programmable, it creates an innovation engine for a strategic business advantage – today.

Third, it is made real: it is a core that meets stringent reliability & quality requirements, because it is created & delivered by Nokia with its broad portfolio and global experience, including hundreds of cloud deployments and dozens of Standalone 5G Core customers.
