Latest software for its CloudBand Infrastructure has been announced by Nokia on Thursday, November 15. With intentions to cut off 5G deployment related operating costs and service delivery enhancement, Nokia for communication service providers (CSPs) and other customers, has introduced the upgraded software to deliver better cloud management solutions.
A distributed and centralized edge for workloads and cloud deployment support has been gained by Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure/Virtualized Infrastructure Manager (NFVI/VIM) unification ability of the CSPs provided by the Nokia‘s CloudBand Infrastructure Software.
To simplify operational procedures with the provision of single NFVI/VIM, The CloudBand Infrastructure Software upgrade offers management and support of containerized workload and Virtual Management as well as all other needs of cloud deployment.
Nokia CloudBand Infrastructure, without introducing completely different tool chains, permits CSPs to increase their skills with cloud-native architectures in this digital service era of 5G with larger dependency on the cloud containers.
To address the barriers in combining telecommunication and information technology, Nokia CloudBand, with lower costs and less hindrance as compared to proprietary storage tower method, facilitate its customers.
For activities like deploying and updating software, troubleshooting using disparate tool chains and setting up of Virtual Network Functions through multiple vendors costs much to CSPs. And over a five-year period by streamlining maintenance, execution and process definition with upgraded CloudBand software, operators can benefit from 56 percent reduction in total cost of ownership or a cost reduction of about 92 percent to manage and maintain cloud infrastructure.
To address multiple challenges coupled with OpenStack adopters OpenStack software directly from the open source community has been included by Nokia CloudBand Infrastructure Software. These challenges include localized infrastructure security compliance, feature updates and providing timely maintenance.
Having improved time-to-market and reduced integration cost, an end to end solution has been provided to customers by pre-integration of full Software Defined Networking domain controller.
