Nokia Convergence Solutions available for wireline and wireless operators and service providers


June 08, 2005

Trials are ongoing with leading operators and service providers.

At SUPERCOMM 2005 in Chicago this week, Nokia is showcasing products, services, and solutions that underline its commitment to both wireless and wireline carriers that want to maximize the potential of convergent networks.

Operators and service providers can enhance their networks for convergence with Nokia in order to give consumers personalized services and mobility across wireline and wireless networks, as well as enhanced coverage and quality. Such service convergence will bring new cost savings and revenue-generating opportunities for operators and service providers.

Nokia is involved in a number of trials of convergence solutions with leading operators. Among those already announced are France Telecom, Telecom Italia, TeliaSonera, and most recently Finnish operator Saunalahti. Several other trials are ongoing, including multiaccess trials with Nokia equipment compliant with Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) standards.

In live demonstrations and presentations at SUPERCOMM, Nokia is highlighting its portfolio of solutions for a unified core network, many of which are commercially available today.

“We have recognized together with operators the solutions that are needed for converging networks,” said Jussi Ilmarinen, Director, Convergence Marketing & Sales, Networks, Nokia. “As we are showing at SUPERCOMM, Nokia has a powerful end-to-end convergence offering, including devices with rich media capabilities, open, standardized platforms and service machinery, many of which are in use today.”

“With our multiaccess solutions, unified core network, OSS, multimedia services, service and network integration, as well as world-class devices, Nokia is well positioned to make the promise of convergence a business reality in this industry,” added Ilmarinen. “By providing voice and multimedia services to the device of choice across multiple access networks, Nokia solutions will allow a smooth transition from circuit-switched services to packet-switched services with full interoperability.”

The Nokia solution includes Nokia’s MSC Server, the world leading 3GPP Release 4 based voice solution, which also provides the capability to concentrate call control -- reducing the cost of building and operating mobile networks. Together with the Nokia Telecommunications Application Server (TAS), caller ID, SMS and other services can be provided for fixed, cellular and multiradio terminals.

TAS is a key part of the Nokia IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) solution, which provides the service machinery for enriching communications in converging fixed and mobile networks. It enables SIP-based multimedia services, such as video sharing and push to talk, in addition to voice services and a unified communications experience using both wireless and wireline packet access networks.
