Aiming to extend its cloud partner ecosystem, Nokia inaugurated a global Cloud Design Center in Fleet, UK. The new facility incorporates an integrated multi-vendor IT and telco cloud platform upon which Nokia will test, validate and demonstrate new services. The delivery of the cloud will be managed at various regional centers.
Nokia also announced the launch of its Prime Integration Services, under which it will act as the single point of contact, working in a development and operations (DevOps) based approach, to design and build open, standardized multi-vendor cloud networks tailored to meet operators' specific needs.
Along with the Cloud Design Center, Nokia has also launched its new 'cloud wise care services', providing:
Care software validation and testing services tailored to an operator's network environment to ensure network quality is maintained and customers are not impacted during upgrades.
Cloud monitoring services, offering a comprehensive package of network monitoring, analytics and troubleshooting from the Nokia Global Delivery Centers or by providing a cloud 'expert as a service' at the operator's premises.
