Hutchison 3 Indonesia (H3I) has contracted Nokia to upgrade its mobile packet core to a cloud-based architecture.
The operator has selected Nokia's Cloud Packet Core solution for the upgrade project, which is aimed at helping the operator enhance mobile broadband services, reduce costs and accelerate time-to-market for innovative new services.
The solution will include a cloud mobility manager and mobile gateway, and will support multi-technology access across wireless licensed, shared, unlicensed spectrum and fixed network technologies, Nokia said.
"We are satisfied cooperating with Nokia on our roadmap to transform our network core to the state-of-the-art cloud-native architecture. It provides us the foundation to uplift customer experience and accelerate new innovative services,” H3I president director Randeep Singh Sekhon said.
“The first cloud-native packet core implementation will play a key role in the transformation of H3I to an agile digital service provider, enabling it to capture the crucial youth market with compelling new services and offers, while lowering operational costs and increasing reliability, performance and security," Nokia head of Indonesia Robert Cattanach added.
