Nokia is applying the agility, scalability, programmability and reliability of the cloud to a new online portal that will enable the development of compelling digital applications using Nokia AirGile cloud-native core products.
The Nokia Developer Portal will provide secure access to products using Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), enabling third party developers to build and test the interoperability of solutions with Nokia AirGile cloud-native core products to accelerate introduction in a commercial network. The Developer Portal will be made available at the end of September.
Nokia is also making the Shared Data Layer available on the Developer Portal. Using APIs, developers will be able to securely use information such as policy, charging and subscription data, in line with country regulations and customer permission, to develop and test location-based, big data analytics and network diagnostic applications. The Shared Data Layer also enables the creation of virtualised 5G network functions using a highly reliable and resilient data storage mechanism.
Nokia continues to foster the growth of a vibrant cloud ecosystem on the Open Ecosystem Network. New Shared Data Layer and Telecom Application Server communities are being added and the existing CloudBand Application Manager ecosystem is being integrated. The communities offer an online platform for operators, enterprises and developers to collaborate, discuss and develop new solutions that leverage these products.
Nokia AirGile cloud-native core is the new name for an expanding portfolio of products that allow operators to implement the agility, scalabilty, programmability and reliability of the cloud into their networks. The AirGile cloud-native core portfolio comprises:
• Nokia Shared Data Layer
• Nokia Cloud Packet Core
• Nokia VoLTE core, including the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and Telecom Application Server (TAS)
• Nokia Session Border Controller (SBC) and Dynamic Diameter Engine (DDE)
• Nokia Revenue Management, including Policy and Charging capabilities
• Nokia CloudBand
Michael Clever, Head of the Cloud Core business at Nokia, said: “By applying the capabilities of our AirGile cloud-native core portfolio to the Developer Portal and Open Ecosystem Network, we can bring a host of market players together to dynamically develop compelling applications that the market has a real need for. Ultimately the communities will develop and grow a suite of tools and services that will enable the next generation of communications.”
