Nokia, True Corp ink a 5G-enabling IP/MPLS deal

16 Jul 2020

Nokia has inked an IP/MPLS network deal with Thailand’s True Group. Nokia’s solution, which will be deployed in the northeastern and eastern areas of the country where the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) is located, will enable a robust 5G rollout with customised services requirements for throughput, latency and reliability. Nokia’s IP/MPLS solution – which includes Nokia 7950 XRS, Nokia 7750 SR powered by Nokia FP4 silicon and Nokia 7250 IXR IP/MPLS routers coupled with a Nokia Network Services Platform (NSP) SDN solution for transport network slicing – will enable True to partition its network into independent logical network slices, each with performance characteristics that fit specific needs. David Oxford, Country Director at Nokia Thailand, said: ‘True has been a key IP and optical networking customer for many years now. As the operator’s main IP/MPLS vendor for 2G/3G/4G and this most recent solution, Nokia’s new 5G-enabling IP/MPLS network, will be instrumental in enabling True to deliver higher throughput, lower latency, and increased reliability.’
