Nokia and AWS are working together to bring a unique set of solutions that would enable service providers to implement cloud strategies faster leveraging Nokia‘s expertise in wireless, wireline and 5G technologies.
“Service providers are accelerating their migration to AWS in order to drive innovation for their customers and deliver lower total cost of IT to their organizations,” said Terry Wise, Global Vice President of Channels and Alliances, Amazon Web Services. “We are excited to partner with Nokia to accelerate cloud transformation for service providers, and enable the digital transformation journey for our mutual large enterprise customers.”
Nokia will support service providers in their migration to AWS with a complete suite of services. The scope of the agreement covers four areas of collaboration:
- Nokia will support service providers in their AWS implementation strategy with a complete suite of services including consulting, design, integration, migration and operation for infrastructure and applications.
- Nokia and AWS will work together to generate new 5G and Edge Cloud strategies and guidance for customers including reference architectures that enable both service providers and enterprises to benefit.
- Nokia and AWS are working to bring an improved user experience for Nuage Networks SD-WAN customers who use AWS. Enterprises can benefit from this seamless integration with AWS and launch secure branch connectivity in hybrid environments with “Single Pane of Glass” capabilities.
- Finally, the companies are commercializing IoT use cases with AWS Greengrass, Amazon Machine Learning, Nokia Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) and Nokia IMPACT platform.
“The 4th Industrial Revolution requires a tighter integration between the IT and networking infrastructure worlds,” said Kathrin Buvac, Nokia‘s Chief Strategy Officer. “Our collaboration with AWS will accelerate the migration of service provider applications to the cloud and enable us to forge new opportunities together by delivering on next-generation connectivity and cloud services. This is a wide-ranging collaboration, spanning our services capabilities in application migration, SD-WAN from Nuage Networks, 5G, and IoT, allowing new growth opportunities for our top customers across both the service provider and large enterprise market segments.”
