Why Nokia for an integrated IP/optical infrastructure?

The Nokia Network Services Platform (NSP) delivers a best-in-class SDN capability for multi-layer, cross-domain, multi-technology and end-to-end coordinated management of IP routing and optical transport assets.

Our networking portfolio encompasses the data plane, control plane and management plane. You can flexibly mix and match according to your deployment and operational needs.  We can help you to optimize the value of each technology, rationalize costs, and reduce your total cost of ownership.

“ Appledore believe Nokia are unique in providing a pre-integrated and encapsulated multilayer/domain SDN manager for all layers of transport networks, enabling true closed loop automation. Part of this is driven by their heritage; Nokia is a strong player in both Optical and IP networks, not one or the other. Moreover, they have a history nearly two decades long, of developing innovative, automated path computation and creation. “
