Nokia Solutions and Networks and Juniper Networks have expanded their long-term partnership to cover secure IP connectivity for high-performance mobile broadband networks.
The jointly-developed solutions focus upon these four key areas of mobile broadband:
- Next generation mobile backhaul: for mobile operators that need to upgrade and consolidate their backhaul networks to support LTE and LTE-Advanced architecture.
- Radio access security: to encrypt and firewall traffic coming into the mobile network over the LTE, as well as the 2G/3G radio access network.
- Mobile Site connectivity: for operators upgrading or extending their mobile infrastructure with the latest NSN products at the controller sites and at the mobile core.
- Carrier-grade NAT: for operators facing exhaustion of public IPv4 addresses and planning for IPv6 migration.
“The advent of LTE means that mobile networks have become focused on the transition to IP,” said David Fremaux, vice president of Strategic Alliances, Juniper Networks. “NSN and Juniper together deliver an exemplary knowledge base and experience of mobile and IP technology. These four solutions build the best platform for mobile broadband operators as they meet the huge demand for speed, connectivity and security at scale. These are the first steps in the extended partnership, which we expect to deliver network infrastructure for future generations of mobile services.”
