stc selects Nokia Orchestration software to deliver 5G slicing

RIYADH, December 6, 2023

Nokia has announced that its Digital Operations’ Orchestration software has been selected by stc to enable the Saudi Arabian operator roll out 5G slicing services. This will meet and customise its customers’ increasingly diverse and specific network needs, in a deal that strengthens the operator’s network monetisation efforts.
Nokia Orchestration Centre, which is part of Nokia Digital Operations Centre, automates the creation and lifecycle management of end-to-end 5G slicing at scale for personalised connectivity services for enterprises and consumers.
Through intent-driven autonomous operations, the creation of end-to-end slices at scale will be accelerated from days to minutes and becomes highly reliable and programmable. The deal will be adding value in realising stc’s ‘DARE’ strategy (Digitise, Accelerate performance, Reinvent experience, and Expand scale and scope).
Multi-tenanted platform
Nokia Orchestration Centre in stc, which aligns with TMF Open Digital Architecture (ODA), will provide a single, multi-tenanted platform for onboarding customers; orchestrating the design and deployment of multi-vendor services; and delivering against business-specific Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
stc will use Nokia’s Orchestration Centre software for various use cases including slice and IP-VPN orchestration.
Samar Mittal, VP, Cloud and Network Services (CNS), Global Business Centre (GBC) at Nokia MEA, said: “This agreement enables stc to capitalise on new 5G business opportunities with premium, automated network slicing services that deliver an enhanced and on-demand customer experience, with all the requirements for scale and SLA fulfilment.”
Anwar Al-Subhi, GM Cloud Infrastructure, at stc said: “Providing new 5G slicing services and technology openness go hand in hand for stc, so we’re pleased that Nokia has these capabilities that will provide our customers with specific network experiences, while giving us fresh automaton and operational efficiency benefits.”--TradeArabia News Service
