Lightstorm picks Nokia’s Digital Operations software for faster service
New Delhi: Nokia has been selected by Lightstorm, India’s first carrier-neutral network infrastructure platform, to deploy its Digital Operations software.
Nokia said it will automate Lightstorm’s service fulfilment and service assurance processes, enabling the company to create new revenue streams by offering Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solutions to their enterprise customers.
The deployment is underway across India and will be implemented on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Once deployed, Lightstorm’s customers will benefit from quick and efficient execution of service requests, the company said in a statement.
“We are confident that Nokia's Digital Operations software on AWS will help us realize our vision of building a software-defined programmable and automated network,” said Amajit Gupta, CEO at Lightstorm.
Lightstorm has built a first of its kind utility-grade fiber network across India to support enterprises’ digital infrastructure at speed and scale, serving as a backbone to power the country’s growing digital economy.
Built for a cloud-first environment, Lightstorm’s foundations lie in digitalization and end-to-end automation of network systems to deliver a seamless user experience.
“With Nokia’s Digital Operations software and the reliability and scalability of AWS, Lightstorm is positioning itself as a next-generation service provider capable of delivering NaaS services rapidly and efficiently,” said Vinish Bawa, Head of Emerging Markets, India at Nokia.
The Digital Operations software facilitates business process and operations automation in multi-vendor, multi-technology, and multi-domain networks. This will enable Lightstorm to quickly quote, design, deploy and assure connectivity services with guaranteed service level agreements.
“We are pleased to work with Nokia and Lightstorm to bring the complete breadth and depth of AWS to play. Deploying Nokia’s Digital Operations software on AWS will allow Lightstorm to drive maximum efficiency, flexibility, and customer satisfaction with modern service design, delivery, and billing,” said Puneet Chandok, President Commercial Sales, AWS India and South Asia, AISPL.
