Nokia becomes supplier for the 5G network of China Unicom14. July 2020
China Unicom, a telecommunications services provider and operator in China, recently announced that it is collaborating with Nokia to expand its core 5G network in China. The contract includes the delivery of telecom infrastructure for approximately 10 percent of the core network. The definition of the core area or core network in mobile communications includes services such as call set-up, bandwidth management, scaling and securing the network as well as new software services in the 5G network such as network slicing.
Nokia issued a press release to provide more details on the services selected by China Unicom. Unified data management, session and user administration are complemented by Nokia’s own “Data Refinery” and “NetAct” systems from the CloudBand solution. The products offered by Nokia combine China Unicom’s existing 4G network with the new 5G gateway and packet management capabilities.
In addition, Nokia currently holds a 17 percent stake in China Unicom’s VoLTE, which has recently been greatly expanded and uses Nokia’s cloud-based vIMS platform. A Nokia spokesperson said the new agreement will further deepen the partnership with China Unicom. “We will continue to support the development of China Unicom’s 5G network”.
