Nokia launches NetAct Cloud network management system

Nokia has released a cloud version of its NetAct network management system (NMS), which is says will help telcos prepare for the vast data handling demands of 5G networks and the move towards hardware-agnostic deployment scenarios.

Nokia also introduced NetAct Fast Pass, a technology that allows operators to deploy new network features instantly at a lower cost by eliminating the need to upgrade the entire NMS in advance. Fast Pass enables key network management functions to be implemented without downtime, while more advanced features can be introduced with a scheduled NMS upgrade.

Operators can now choose between the existing virtualised NetAct and the new NetAct Cloud in accordance with their data centre strategy. NetAct Cloud can be deployed on the same platform as other IT and telco systems in data centres. This enables operators to apply unified operational and maintenance processes and tools to reduce costs and scale.

Bhaskar Gorti, Applications & Analytics president at Nokia, said: "NetAct Cloud was built with an evolution towards 5G in mind. We added capabilities to deploy network features faster and work smoothly in cloud environments. With these enhancements, Nokia is well equipped to help our more than 500 NetAct customers safeguard their network management investment while preparing their networks for the future."
