SIM Secure Connect and AVA Network Data Analytics Function are two new software solutions (SaaS) launched by Nokia for mobile carriers and companies.
The new services, which are focused on security, data, and monetization, build on Nokia’s current SaaS business to enable telecoms service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to increase their value by transitioning to a subscription-based, old-school, cost-effective model.
Nokia’s new SaaS solution, ISIM Secure Connect, allows CSPs and companies to manage eSIM and iSIM-enabled device registrations in a secure and medium-term manner. It also integrates all components of the eSIM / iSIM management process seamlessly, allowing services linked to a reliable digital identification system to be monetized.
The company’s second product combines AI and analytics which is a virtualization and automation (AVA) solution. Nokia AVA Network Data Analytics Function (NWDAF) offers analytics on the network edge, leverages 3GPP compliant analytics services, and promotes software development interactions because of its distributed architecture and open APIs.
To generate greater returns automation of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) helps improve network performance and customer experience.
Regarding commercial releases, Nokia said their AVA NWDAF service would be available later this quarter with a SaaS delivery model. ISIM Secure Connect is scheduled to launch as SaaS later this year. However, other shipping options will continue to be available to customers.
