Marking the industry’s first deployment of 5G in the public cloud to support DISH’s cloud native, OpenRAN-based 5G network, Nokia said it will deploy its 5G Standalone (SA) Core for DISH on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
As per an official statement, the Finnish telecoms gear maker – Nokia is providing its voice core, cloud packet core, subscriber data management, device management, and NetGuard network security, as well as end-to-end security services for DISH to help the latter deliver new 5G-era services while enabling it to manage its network with near zero-touch automation, and ensuring adherence to Service Level Agreements compliant to DISH Service-Based Architecture (SBA).
