Nokia supplies 5G Core for APT’s 5G NSA network

Nokia has supplied its 5G Core for Asia Pacific Telecom’s (APT) live 5G Non-Standalone (NSA) and VoLTE service.
Nokia AirScaleAPT launched 5G services on Taiwan’s 3.5GHz frequency band by utilizing Nokia’s 5G NSA Core in mid-August.

The 3GPP standard complied Nokia Core network software provides APT smooth integration with the shared radio network and unlocking full MOCN capabilities. The full cloud-based solution will further pave the way towards zero-touch automation capabilities that drive greater scale and reliability.

Nokia leads the market in core network deployments, with 25 of the top 40 communication service providers relying on its core network products.

Nan-Ren Huang, President of Asia Pacific Telecom, said: “With this roll-out, we are now serving reliable 5G and VoLTE connection, new services, and premium 5G experience to our subscribers across the island, powered by Nokia’s Core and software solutions.”

“Our customers want to be able to deploy their networks in an open and flexible manner, without being locked into proprietary infrastructure and software; and this, along with the strength of our technology, is why Nokia’s Core software continues to be the best placed in the market,” Fran Heeran, SVP & Head of Core Networks, Cloud and Network Services, Nokia, said.
