Nokia has just announced the launch of the Nokia Network Operations Master, which will provide communication service providers (CSPs) with automated and scalable software for managing 5G networks.
CSPs are increasingly requiring intelligent management systems, as 5G adds multiple layers of complexity to operations. For example, there will be a considerably higher number of physical and virtual network events, placing a lot of strain on network operation centres. Therefore, this software is designed to make life much easier for CSPs.

The Network Operations Master is the latest addition to Nokia’s management portfolio. The whole collection is designed to offer tools for troubleshooting, administration, software management, and configuration management.
The new system is a notable improvement on previous software, used for managing 4G networks, which relied on more manual processes, and was less capable of scaling up efficiently. Nokia’s Network Operations Master solves both of these issues head on, giving much more freedom and flexibility to CSPs.
“The Nokia Network Operations Master delivers these capabilities and allows our customers to perform lifecycle operations with ease, efficiency, and confidence,” explained Ron Haberman, Chief Technology Officer, Nokia Software.
Existing operation functionalities will remain, but the new software allows processes to be automated and simplified, something which is a must for new 5G networks. And CSPs can now focus on more critical events, rather than carrying out repetitive actions themselves.
“5G networks will require significantly more operations automation than past networks in order to achieve promised levels of efficiency and new service support,” said Dana Cooperson, Research Director at Analysys Mason. “Nokia’s Network Operations Master is a cloud-native network management system that is underpinned by machine learning and automated actions and provides the types of tools mobile network operations teams need now for 5G.”
