Nokia has announced its support for DISH’s launch of the world’s first telco network in the U.S. to use Nokia 5G Standalone Core on Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud.
The cloud-native network enables DISH to customize and scale its customer network experience through automation, and more quickly provide its customers with new ultra-low latency 5G advanced services.
Nokia’s cloud-native software allows DISH to cost effectively manage its network and offer new enterprise and consumer 5G use cases in areas like Industry 4.0 and mission critical services quickly and securely, while fully adhering to Service Level Agreements.
