Nokia’s cloud-native Core software will ensure Ooredoo Algeria to have near-zero-touch automation capabilities and high-level operational efficiency by modernizing its core to a more efficient, cloud-based network.

Ooredoo Algeria can meet rising customer demand for much greater bandwidth capacity and service quality. The deployment follows Nokia’s support to help Ooredoo Algeria deploy North Africa’s first cloud mobile gateway and facilitate the complete migration from the legacy core to Nokia’s cloud-native core network technology.

Nokia’s Cloud Packet Core Cloud Mobile Gateway provides Ooredoo Algeria with a scalable and flexible architecture to rapidly launch a diverse services mix to its customers.

Nokia’s AirFrame cloud infrastructure allows Ooredoo Algeria to deliver telco applications that demand low latency and high speeds. Nokia professional services ensured a smooth migration of the legacy core to the new technology.

Djillali Erouane, technology operational director at Ooredoo Algeria, said: “With Nokia’s cloud-native core solution, we are able deliver the latest services, while better controlling our operational costs, and being positioned to deliver the type of innovation desired by our subscribers.”

“Moving its core network to the cloud gives Ooredoo Algeria tremendous automation capabilities in network management and the capacity to deliver a stronger customer experience in terms of both products and services,” Raghav Sahgal, president of Cloud and Network Services at Nokia, said in a statement.
