Thursday, Nokia launched a set of tools for networking data centers in collaboration with Apple. Reuters said the goal is to help companies manage the increased traffic when deploying 5G networks.
As the use of 5G networks grows, large amounts of data will be generated as more appliances and other machines are connected to sensors and artificial intelligence tools, creating what l is called “the Internet of Things”. Nokia, which competes with Chinese Huawei and Swedish Ericsson to build 5G networks, has expanded its portfolio by adding open interfaces to its 5G equipment and launching new networking products. “We have worked closely with (Apple) for the past two years or more to understand their needs,” said Steve Vogelsang, Nokia’s chief technology officer for IP and optical operations.
