The IMS voice core functionalities are built into fully cloud native containerized environment. To avoid complexity and run the voice network efficiently, the whole system is pre-tested and pulled into a single Cloud-Native Network Function (CNF).
CNCS provides an IMS voice core that offers simplified operations and easy life-cycle management. CNCS can help CSPs deploy advanced voice services such as Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Voice over 5G networks(Vo5G). CNCS is an ideal choice to our customers, who wish to simplify the operations of their voice core services.
The Nokia Cloud Native Communication Suite (CNCS) is a simplified, IMS-based product designed as a single Cloud Native Network Function (CNF). This approach, based on a modular architecture composed of independent functions, is designed to simplify the deployment and operability of the IMS Voice Core, reducing installation and upgrade time. It provides automated deployment and configuration, reducing footprint, and lowers costs through operational savings of life cycle management.
Dedicated network elements, such as the Session Border Controller (SBC), Call Session Control Function (CSCF), Telephony Application Server (TAS) and Media Resource function (MRF) are encapsulated as microservices into the CNF.
Nokia Cloud Native Communication Suite claims it improves energy efficiency by 10% to 20% compared to other IMS voice cores, because its software architecture improves common resource utilisation and internal messaging performance, requiring less infrastructure for the IMS voice service.
Nokia Cloud Native Communication Suite is optimised for fixed, 4G, 5G and Wi-Fi deployments.
