6 September, 2016

Espoo, Finland
- Nokia is to launch a set of services that will enable operators to leverage
the benefits of 5G technology in order to realize their individual business
goals in the most effective way. Nokia 5G Acceleration Services will help
operators develop a plan for their business, network and operational
transformation to prepare them
for the 5G programmable world.

The advent of 5G will provide operators with opportunities to serve a diverse
range of vertical industries and enterprises as they enable applications such
as smart cities, automated driving, remote healthcare and full automation of
homes and businesses. Leveraging technologies available today such as mobile
edge computing, cloud and Software-Defined Networking, 5G will deliver the
ultra-reliable, low-latency networks needed to address a myriad of business
possibilities.

Nokia 5G Acceleration Services will assist operators in translating their 5G
vision into a tailored transformation plan. Nokia will collaborate with
operators to prepare and design the unique evolution of multi-vendor
networks, providing a comprehensive technology and business analysis of an
operator's current situation as well as guidance on the steps they should
take to transform their operations. By defining the pace of investment and
introduction of new technologies operators will be able to capitalize on the
opportunities and deliver at the optimal time.

Leveraging the breadth of global telco-cloud consulting experience and
technology and services expertise within Nokia and Bell Labs Consulting, 5G
Acceleration Services will now deliver a modular set of transformation
support including:

* Building a solid business case using: * Collaborative customer workshops to
help operators define a phased strategy for transformation and the
implications on their business, technology, and operations. * A
techno-economic analysis using scenarios that meet the operators' goals for
5G to optimize network evolution investment * A 5G spectrum assessment,
allowing operators to optimize spectrum resources to deliver the capacity
needed to realize their 5G goals
* Planning a staged architecture and operational evolution using: *
Technology workshops to provide an in-depth view of the impact of 5G
technology on network architecture, end-to-end network planning and
deployment and how it can be applied to meet business objectives *
Goal-driven 5G radio access network design to meet the performance and
traffic demands of chosen scenarios

* Building a solid foundation to 5G by allowing operators to leverage Nokia's
extensive services expertise to help them ramp-up their network,
organization and business capabilities and become 5G-ready.

Andy Hicks,
r
esearch director, IDC's EMEA Telecommunications group
said:
"5G isn't just '4G 2.0.' For one thing, this time the use cases are developing
ahead of the technical standard. That's healthy for the industry, but will
also require networks to support myriad performance profiles fairly rapidly.
Operators thus have to make sure that their 5G evolution plans incorporate
both upgrades to their networks and advancements in their operational
capabilities. If they can start to monetize new use cases while still
migrating toward 5G, so much the better."

Igor Leprince, head of Global Services at Nokia, said:
"Operators can already begin to plan their path to 5G, building the foundation
of the programmable world with cloud-based technologies. Working in a
consultative mode Nokia 5G Acceleration Services can minimize the complexity
of this transformation, creating a plan that will allow operators to migrate
optimally to 5G to capitalize on new business opportunities. We are already
working with our customers on 5G co-development agreements, and by leveraging
our transformation services and Bell Labs Consulting expertise we can help
operators build a solid business case for their 5G transformation."
