Nokia provides 5G cloud-native core network services to Ooredoo Qatar

Finnish telecom and consumer electronics major, Nokia, has reportedly announced Ooredoo Qatar’s roll out of commercial 5G services via the deployment of Nokia’s cloud-native core network. The launch of this network has effectively enabled the operator to deliver superior mobile broadband services to its subscriber base of roughly two million users in Qatar.

According to Henrique Vale, Nokia’s Vice President for Middle East and Africa, the transformation of Ooredoo’s legacy core network to a completely cloud-native 5G core network within a short period of time is a reflection of Nokia’s exceptional delivery expertise and end-to-end portfolio. Vale has further stated that the deployment of the company’s new core network by Ooredoo Qatar will allow it to furnish innovative use cases to its users and will also prepare the network for delivering scalable 5G commercial services.

As per sources, the newly deployed core network will enable automation for the purpose of streamlined network management and improved network efficiency. The core network will also allow Ooredoo Qatar to furnish new and exciting use cases, comprising Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi) and Industrial IoT (IIoT), to its subscribers.

Yousuf Abdulla Al Kubaisi, the Chief Operating Officer at Ooredoo Qatar, has stated that the company is thrilled to reach this milestone that ensures the effective delivery of 5G commercial services through the launch of its cloud-native 5G core network powered by Nokia. He has also stated that this partnership will help the company to deliver high-speed, low-latency, and content-rich services to its subscriber base. The project is a testament to the company’s commitment to bringing the latest technology to its subscribers, aligns with the company’s objective of complete customer satisfaction, and reiterates the company’s leadership position in the global 5G ecosystem, added Kubaisi.

As reported, Nokia’s cloud platform deploys more than 10 virtualized network functions comprising subscriber management registers, voice, data, in addition to policy control allowing voice and data services.
