- Nokia to deploy end-to-end service orchestration and assurance solutions across PLDT and Smart’s nationwide network
- As part of the agreement, Nokia to standardize PLDT and Smart’s Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure across the Philippines
18 May 2021
Espoo, Finland – Nokia today announced it will supplyits Digital Operations software,cloud infrastructure software and AirFrame servers to enhance the nationwide network of PLDT, the Philippines’ largest, fully integrated telecommunications company, and its wireless unit Smart Communications (Smart).
The suite of solutions will also standardize PLDT and Smart’s virtualization environment for multi-vendor applications. The deployment, which is already underway, will allow PLDT and Smart’s integrated network to increase agility, flexibility and reduce operating costs and time to market when deploying new consumer and enterprise services, with the primary focus of significantly improving customer experience, speed of delivery, and cost of production.
Nokia will deploy its Digital Operations software to automate the round-trip lifecycle management of network functions, as well as network-facing and customer-facing services. Specifically, as PLDT and Smart evolve their integrated network from physical to virtual form, the solution will manage two interrelated flows. First, it will oversee the network function lifecycle from onboarding through runtime to decommissioning. Then, it will facilitate the lifecycle from design to deployment and assurance that orchestrates services and network slices across the network. This will enable PLDT and Smart to drive efficiencies into their operations processes while also becoming more agile to deliver innovative market-facing services.
Nokia will also standardize PLDT and Smart’s Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) across the South Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao regions of the Philippines, as the unified NFVI for the deployment of multiple vendors’ Virtualized Network Functions. Nokia will deploy applications, operations and network management solutions across its NFVI cloud platform and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) core.
Mario G. Tamayo, Head of Technology at PLDT and Smart, said: “Our deployment of Nokia’s software and infrastructure solutions have allowed us to tap into new levels of agility, flexibility and efficiency as we add innovative new offerings to complement our current market-leading consumer and enterprise services. This is an essential part of our broad and all-encompassing effort to keep the integrated PLDT and Smart network optimized and able to deliver the best experience to all our customers.”
Raghav Sahgal, President of Cloud and Network Servicesat Nokia, said: “By automating service, network and cloud operations, PLDT and Smart will not only be able to drive cost-savings, but also increase customer satisfaction – two business objectives that are typically challenging to do simultaneously but are possible with the help of Nokia’s solutions.”

Bavarian Nordic leverer vacciner til Englands beredskab i forbindelse med nye tilfælde af abekopper11.6.2021 19:12:35 CEST | pressemeddelelse
KØBENHAVN, Danmark, 11. juni 2021 – Bavarian Nordic A/S (OMX: BAVA) meddelte i dag, at selskabet for nylig er blevet anmodet af de engelske sundhedsmyndigheder, Public Health England (PHE) og Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), om at levere koppevaccinen IMVANEX® til vaccination i forbindelse med nye, udefrakommende tilfælde af abekopper i mennesker i England. To relaterede tilfælde er blevet bekræftet og er blevet indlagt på et hospital i Liverpool. Den ene er sandsynligvis blevet smittet i Afrika, hvorfra familien ankom et par dage inden sygdommen brød ud, mens den anden sandsynligvis er blevet smittet af det første tilfælde efter hjemkomsten. Abekopper er en sjælden, men alvorlig sygdom, der naturligt forekommer i det centrale og det vestlige Afrika. Sygdommen er beslægtet med den menneskelige koppesygdom, om end den er mindre alvorlig med en dødelighed, der er estimeret til at være fra 1-10% af tilfældene. IMVANEX (MVA-BN) er godkendt af Europa-Kommissionen til

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, June 11, 2021 – Bavarian Nordic A/S (OMX: BAVA) announced today that the Company was recently engaged by Public Health England (PHE) and the Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to supply its IMVANEX® smallpox vaccine in response to new cases of monkeypox in the UK. Two related cases were confirmed and admitted to a hospital in Liverpool. One was most likely infected in Africa, where the family arrived from a few days before onset of disease, and a sibling case most likely infected on UK soil by the first case. Monkeypox is a rare, but serious disease, which is endemic in Central and West Africa. The disease is quite similar to human smallpox, although it is less severe with an estimated fatality rate of 1-10%. IMVANEX (MVA-BN) is approved by the European Commission for active immunization against smallpox but has also received approval for monkeypox by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada, as the only vaccine approved for
