LMT has recently selected Nokia’s 5G Standalone (SA) Core to deliver new advanced 5G services such as network slicing, enhance LMT’s network experience and reliability, and monetize network assets faster than before.

LMT already uses Nokia Cloud Packet Core, Subscriber Data Management, and software solutions for 5G signaling and cloud management. The latest deal widens Nokia’s footprint in LMT’s activities even more.

Nokia 5G SA Core will give LMT the speed, intelligence, scale, and security to deliver 5G services while cost-effectively managing the operator’s network with near zero-touch automation and adherence to Service Level Agreements. 5G SA Core will also enable LMT to launch low-latency applications for enterprise customers and build new capabilities within the network, including network APIs and analytics. The deployment will also include the Nokia 7220 Interconnect Router for data center fabric.

Gunars Danbergs, VP of Technology at LMT, comments:

To better monetize our network assets and strengthen our network agility and reliability, it is crucial that LMT deploys 5G Standalone Core. With our strong existing partnership, Nokia 5G SA Core gives us the best tools and functions to move the LMT customer experience to another level and allow us to manage our network more predictably.

Nokia is leading the 5G SA Core market, with over 60 CSP customers worldwide, including around 30 CSPs in Europe. 25 of the top 40 world’s communication service providers by revenue rely on Nokia Core network products.

We are proud to build on our solid partnership with LMT by providing it with Nokia’s market-leading Core Network technology to enable the rollout of advanced 5G services. LMT already provides its customers with a strong experience, and we look forward to furthering that work,

said Fran Heeran, SVP & Head of Core Networks, Cloud and Network Services, at Nokia.
