Singtel, Nokia collaborate on 5G network slicing capabilities trial Featured


Singtel and Nokia are collaborating on developing and trialling 5G network slicing capabilities, based on a Network as a Service (NaaS) approach aimed at providing customers with “highly customisable” services for a variety of 5G use cases and applications.

Network slicing is a key 5G feature where multiple virtual networks can be created atop one physical network.

The newly announced trial is the latest in a series of trials that Singtel and its technology partners are working on to develop 5G use cases in areas such as cloud gaming, manufacturing, and maritime operations.

The 5G network slicing trials will be conducted and tested with organisations later this year in Singapore.

According to Singtel the NaaS platform, enabled by Nokia’s next-generation operations suite and cloud management products which automate the creation and delivery of digital services, will give the company greater control and visibility of services across the network while addressing specific 5G needs of enterprises with speed, efficiency and flexibility.

“For example, Singtel will be able to offer an enterprise customer a secured network slice on demand, in a matter of minutes, with assured security and network performance in latency, bandwidth and availability. Currently, such a network service would take weeks or months to implement,” Singtel claimed.

Mark Chong, Group Chief Technology Officer of Singtel, said, “Network slicing will open up a realm of exciting possibilities for our enterprise customers to go to market quicker with new and innovative 5G-powered services, such as virtual reality, IoT and smart factory applications. We are happy to be trialling network slicing capabilities with Nokia.”

“Today’s enterprise and communications technology buyers expect more – a lot more – from their innovation partners. Framed by always-on technology, communications service providers need to up their game on customer engagement. Singtel is taking the right approach, re-fitting their service delivery and assurance processes and tools,” said Bhaskar Gorti, President of Nokia Software.

“This move to a 5G digital services infrastructure ensures they can stay ahead of customer demand and even service new customer segments.”

The 5G network slicing trials will be conducted and tested with organisations later this year in Singapore.
