Nokia and Amazon Web Services team up on 5G and cloud
Written by: Sam Fenwick | Published:

Nokia has today (19 October) announced a strategic collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Nokia and AWS will collaborate on 5G use cases for service providers and Nokia will support service providers in their migration to AWS with a complete suite of services.

One aim of the collaboration is for the two companies to provide a set of solutions that could enable service providers to implement their cloud strategies more quickly.

Nokia is also seeking to bring ‘disruptive’ IoT applications for large enterprise customers using AWS' services.

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.

Kathrin Buvac, Nokia's chief strategy officer, said: "The 4th Industrial Revolution requires a tighter integration between the IT and networking infrastructure worlds. 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."

Terry Wise, global vice president of channels and alliances, Amazon Web Services, Inc., said: "Service providers are accelerating their migration to AWS to drive innovation for their customers and deliver lower total cost of IT to their organisations. 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."
