Nokia and Microsoft have teamed up to launch the world’s first artificial intelligence (AI) use-case library on the public cloud for telecom providers.

The duo claim that by integrating Nokia’s security framework with Microsoft Azure’s digital architecture, communications service providers (CSPs) can “securely inject AI into their networks nine times faster than using private cloud”.

Nokia AVA AI as a service allows CSPs to deploy AI use cases securely. The Nokia security framework on Azure ensures data is segregated and isolated to provide the same level of security as a private cloud.

Australian mobile operator TPG was the first commercial adopter of Nokia AVA AI on public cloud, using a local instance of Microsoft Azure. According to TPG, the use of the Nokia AVA AI allows them to reduce radio frequency optimization cycle times by 50%.

Friedrich Trawoeger, vice president of cloud and cognitive services at Nokia, said: “CSPs are under constant pressure to reduce costs by automating business processes through AI and machine learning.

“To meet market demands, telcos are turning to us for Telco AI-as-a-Service and this launch represents an important milestone in our multi-cloud strategy. Operators can achieve significantly faster implementation times and can access a library of AI use cases remotely to improve network performance, lower costs, and reduce environmental impact at the same time.”

Rick Lievano, CTO telecom, media & communications at Microsoft, added: “Nokia AVA on Microsoft Azure infuses AI deep into the network, bringing a large library of use cases to securely streamline and optimize network operations leveraging open source compliant services managed by Microsoft Azure. Nokia AVA is a clear proof point that public clouds are ready to help service providers drive AI closed-loop automation while increasing speed, agility, and scalability.”
