Nokia on Oct. 6 announced a cross-portfolio line-up of its Fixed Networks solutions now available on a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) basis.

The company's contends a SaaS delivery model reduces IT dependencies, and that its usage-based subscription can deliver up to 25% lower cost of ownership for operators.

As noted by Julie Kunstler, chief analyst at industry research firm Omdia:

“Being able to opt out of running software on costly, complex, on-premise infrastructure is a big advantage for operators. Furthermore, a SaaS model means more flexibility and an easier path to delivering new services.”

Already available on bare metal servers and in the cloud, Nokia’s Fixed Networks applications can now be deployed by operators via its SaaS delivery model with a portfolio including the Altiplano Access Controller and WiFi Cloud Controller.

Operational tools for automated activation of end-user fiber modems, predictive care and network build and management are also part of the line-up.

Operators can start with a small investment and subscription plan and can easily scale up and down based on business success. Via the new platform, according to Nokia, "tasks and risks related to cloud infrastructure are eliminated allowing them to focus on their core business: running the fixed access network."

Metronet and LUS Fiber use Nokia’s all-inclusive SaaS service, where Nokia performs the application hosting, including the set-up, monitoring, maintenance and updates.

Sandy Motley, president, Fixed Networks at Nokia, concluded:

“SaaS gets operators started quickly. No special IT set-up means reduced upfront deployment costs, and in a highly competitive world, operation efficiency is key to both high quality customer service and business profitability. Operators can tailor the subscription package choosing the Service Level Agreements and levels of support to meet their operational needs. They can deploy different Nokia SaaS instances for use in production, lab testing, pilots, or development.”
