Worlds first automated 4G/5G slicing in RAN domain

Nokia network management system is slice aware starting from 4G. Slice automation enables operators to streamline operations, thereby reducing operational costs and meeting expectations for service velocity. Nokia NetAct is an integral part of Nokia‘s end-to-end 4G/5G radio slicing solution. Our flagship network management system is providing both automated Configuration and Performance management for 4G/5G radio slices.

Machine learning in network management

Nokia NetAct leverages big data and combines it with machine learning techniques for various functionalities. Being the central source of network-wide operations, NetAct also provides a great source of input for other machine learning applications in CSP networks. There are close collaborations ongoing between operators and Nokia on machine learning concepts and use cases, e.g. intelligent correlation of network alarms. These innovations help maximize the value of machine learning in network management.
