Nokia has announced that it will introduce end-to-end service management and assurance solutions through the nation-wide network of PLDT Incorporated and Smart Communications Incorporated, a wireless communications and digital services subsidiary of PLDT. Nokia will standardise PLDT and Smart’s network function virtualisation technology as well as provide digital operations software, cloud computing software, and AirFrame servers. Nokia will also use its automated operations tools to simplify the network operations’ round-trip life cycle management.

The project aims to systematise the virtualization environment at PLDT and Smart Communications for multi-vendor purposes. Nokia’s solution will enable the companies’ interconnected system to increase efficiency, delivery speed, versatility, and reduce operating costs.
