Singtel, Nokia to launch 5G network slicing trial

Monday 2 March 2020 | 13:09 CET | News
Singapore operator Singtel and Nokia have agreed to collaborate on the development and testing of 5G network slicing capabilities, based on a Network as a Service (NaaS) approach that provides customers with customisable services for 5G use cases and applications. Singtel expects to be able to offer an enterprise customer a secured network slice on demand, in a matter of minutes. Currently, such a network service would take weeks or months to implement, the operator added. The 5G network slicing trials will be conducted and tested with organisations later this year in Singapore.
