    Nokia intros virtualised network management software for non-telecoms networks


    Nokia has launched a cut-down version of its NetAct virtualised mobile network management system, called NetAct Compact, for smaller radio and core networks outside of the telecoms sector.

    Like its parent solution, NetAct Compact provides operators with a single consolidated view of their virtualised mobile network, and tools for troubleshooting, administration, software management and configuration management.

    It also affords advanced assurance capabilities and closed-loop automation to drive greater network agility.

    Specifically, it provides network monitoring, configuration management, security and reporting capabilities for smaller mobile, enterprise and public sector radio networks with up to 2,000 network elements, and core networks with up to 500,000 subscribers.

    Nokia said the compact version meets the operational and budgetary requirements of smaller operators, and public safety networks, as well as enterprises and public sector organisations in healthcare, oil and gas, mining, railways, airports and universities.

    Peter Patomella, Head of Network Management and Self Optimizing Networks at Nokia, said: “There are a number of smaller operators and customers outside of the traditional service provider market that up until now have not had access to a robust network management system.

    “NetAct Compact brings a powerful solution with all the tools needed to help them improve network performance and enhance users’ experiences. It also allows them to manage complex networks without compromising network and service quality, and without increasing operational costs.”

    NetAct is being used by Three Ireland, Sprint, and China Telecom, among others.
