ESPOO, Finland, June 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
In its 150th anniversary year, Nokia continues to innovate and reinvent itself by being the first vendor to effectively merge the IT and telco cloud domains with the launch of its AirFrame Data Center Solution. This is the first offering that combines the benefits of cloud computing technologies with the stringent requirements of the core and radio in the telco world. The Nokia AirFrame Data Center Solution is 5G-ready and supports the vision of a more flexible and distributed cloud architecture, which is the foundation to deliver the latency and data processing requirements of the future. The Nokia AirFrame Data Center Solution is available now.
First solution to efficiently serve both the IT and telco worlds
The first steps for the telco cloud were focused on taking core applications to a virtualized environment, offering immediate benefits of added scalability, flexibility and business agility. However, when implementing a comprehensive telco cloud architecture operators are faced with strict latency requirements and an extremely high demand for processing power. The new AirFrame Data Center Solution is the first to directly address these requirements and effectively merge the telco and IT domains in one single solution, utilizing high performance Intel® technology.
In developing AirFrame, Nokia Networks has invested in further advancing the data center hardware technology. Its innovations will deliver acceleration capabilities that will help operator customers be more efficient and differentiate themselves in the market. To continue advancing its solutions, Nokia Networks has opened a dedicated R&D facility for data center technology development. With this solid foundation, the Nokia AirFrame Data Center Solution brings what is needed to efficiently merge the IT and telco domains and pave the way towards 5G.
AirFrame: a unique way for operators to implement cloud:
AirFrame components include:
Sandra Rivera, Vice President and General Manager, Network Platforms Group, Intel, said: "We're pleased to support Nokia Networks on its path to provide a data center solution that fulfills the most demanding requirements of the telco cloud environment. We believe that combining Intel's leading processors and virtualization technologies with Nokia Networks' deep knowledge of the telecommunications market will accelerate adoption for cloud technologies deployed by leading operators worldwide."
Marc Rouanne, Executive Vice President, Mobile Broadband, Nokia Networks, said: "Nokia Networks is changing the game in telco cloud. We are taking on the IT-telco convergence with a new solution to challenge the traditional IT approach of the data center. From the beginning, Nokia Networks has been a forerunner in telco cloud innovation*. This newest solution brings telcos carrier-grade high availability, security-focused reliability as well as low latency, while leveraging the company's deep networks expertise and strong business with operators to address an increasingly cloud-focused market valued in the tens of billions of euros."

* Nokia Networks is a forerunner in developing telco cloud, innovating in several key dimensions. This includes network function virtualization (NFV), enabling the company to help operators move from the virtualization of single network elements to full cloud orchestration, including cloud application management.
Over the years, the company has developed and tested with its customers virtualized network elements, focusing on the core and cloud application management, resulting in bringing the telco cloud to commercial readiness. In September, 2014, Nokia Networks announced the delivery of the first commercial NFV solution to enable cloud-based VoLTE services.
