Ooredoo Algeria deploys Nokia’s cloud-native core

29 Jan 2021

Ooredoo Algeria has deployed Nokia’s cloud-native Core software to cost effectively strengthen its network performance and reliability, and to strategically position itself for the future and the launch of new services to meet customer needs. A press release announced: ‘By modernising its core to a more efficient, cloud-based network, with near-zero-touch automation capabilities and high-level operational efficiencies, Ooredoo Algeria can meet rising customer demand for much greater bandwidth capacity and service quality. The deployment follows Nokia’s support to help Ooredoo Algeria deploy North Africa’s first cloud mobile gateway and facilitate the complete migration from the legacy core to Nokia’s cloud-native core network technology.’ Djillali Erouane, Technology Operational Director at Ooredoo Algeria, added: ‘Moving the core network to Nokia’s cloud solution can support industrial automation and the Internet of Things (IoT) when these technologies become available in the country.’
