Service Lifecycle Automation for 5G Core

Capture the 5G opportunity with service enablement of the whole lifecycle

Overview

Reduce time to market, improve network reliability and optimize total cost of ownership (TCO) by automating the entire 5G service lifecycle — and get the agility and openness needed to fully capitalize on the 5G market.

Nokia’s Service Lifecycle Automation for 5G Core is a fully integrated service enablement platform for automating, managing and delivering every stage of the service lifecycle in a highly agile and cost-effective way. It covers the initial design, deployment, integration, verification (testing) and rollout (deployment) of network services, as well as automated care through continuous monitoring, predictive reconfiguration, updates/upgrades and trouble ticketing.

Automation

Deployment automation

Provides a framework in which digital methods of procedure (digiMOPs) — the building blocks of automated workflows — can be created, organized, stored, executed and reused.

Granular

Test automation

Enables the automated creation, execution and reporting of lifecycle management, system regression, performance and robustness validation test cases.

Connect

Predictive network monitoring

Ensures a high level of quality of service (QoS) is maintained once the network is rolled out and operational by continuously tracking and detecting anomalies.

Benefits and features

By automating the design/deploy, test and operate stages, you benefit from:

Increase

Improved reliability

Increase reliability of delivery and testing processes by as much as 90%.*

 

* Estimates, individual cases may differ

Optimize

Faster time to market

Validate and deliver new software quicker, cutting lead times by as much as 60%.*

Cost savings

Optimized TCO

Decrease testing costs and reduce network incidents for total cost of ownership (TCO) savings as high as 30%.*

1. Design and Deploy

Deployment automation brings traditionally siloed automation workflow development onto a shared platform across multiple domains: IMS, NFVI, SDM, 5G core.

Working together with Nokia, your operations teams can construct workflows from reusable digital methods of procedure (digiMOPs) building blocks, with execution progress and results collated in a single dashboard so project management is always up to date.

Silo-free, reusable automation scripts

Symbiotic

More collaboration between teams

Cost savings

Real-time monitoring

2. Test

Nokia offers automated testing-as-a-service capabilities for four distinct validation test cases: lifecycle management validation, functional regression testing, capacity benchmarking and robustness testing.

Test automation ensures the speedy acceptance of any changes in the network, from configuration changes to network function upgrades to new feature activations. 

Increase

Optimize

Faster time to market

Cost savings

Optimized TCO

Decrease testing costs and reduce network incidents for total cost of ownership (TCO) savings as high as 30%.*

3. Operate

Once the network is rolled out, predictive network monitoring (PNM) ensures quality of service (QoS) by detecting anomalies and incidents before they can affect end users.

If key performance indicators (KPIs) begin to degrade at either the infrastructure or network element level, PNM takes corrective actions — for example, by proactively triggering the scaling of a network function or rebalancing subscribers across different sites.
