The Nokia Core Enterprise Solutions will expand the company's portfolio range available to large, mission-critical enterprises and governments. They are based on the company’s Core range of products and optimised to help enterprises take advantage of secure carrier grade capabilities and digitalise their network infrastructure to realise increased automation, productivity and efficiency.

They are part of Nokia’s private wireless solutions and designed for enterprises and governments that have networking requirements similar to a communication service provider. These new solutions are tailored to the specific mission-critical network needs of public safety and power utilities, and include highly optimised footprint and operational requirements and streamlined deployment and support.

Expected to be commercially available later this year, the solutions provide unified 4G and 5G data, voice and subscriber/device management capabilities, and create streamlined adoption paths across technology and application generations. These include use of broadband-enhanced communication tools for public safety and the introduction of IoT in power utilities.

Ken Rehbehn, principal analyst at CritComm Insights, commented, “A select set of government and business operations provides essential safety, energy, and transportation functionality required for a safe society and robust economic growth. These organisations have a unique requirement for wide-area wireless operations across sweeping geography with secure, ubiquitous, and high-quality connectivity enabled by private 4G and 5G networks. Nokia's pre-integrated, sector-optimised mission-critical core network solutions can reduce risk and help speed challenging wide-area private network deployments.”

Fran Heeran, senior vice-president and general manager of core networks, cloud and network services, at Nokia said, “This exciting new evolution of our Core portfolio further enhances Nokia’s leading position in private wireless. Nokia Core Enterprise Solutions will provide important catalysts for accelerating digital transformation for enterprises in public safety and power utilities. They will modernise large scale enterprise networks, as well as provide important broadband capabilities and a clear and path to deploying private 5G for the WAN.”
