New T-Mobile and Nokia cyber partnership

Nokia will secure T-Mobile’s network against cyber threats and also help accelerate the telecom operator’s digital transformation.

T-Mobile Netherlands has signed Nokia as a strategic partner. Nokia will secure T-Mobile’s network against cyber threats and also help accelerate the telecom operator’s digital transformation.

T-Mobile Netherlands is the Dutch sister company of T-Mobile US. Both are controlled by Germany’s Deutsche Telekom. Finland-based Nokia sells telecom network equipment and provides the software and services that go with them.

Regulators have demanded that operators improve the security of their networks at a time when threats and attacks are rising globally. Nokia will apply its NetGuard Audit Compliance Manager to minimize security risks to T-Mobile’s network and also help the operator improve its regulatory compliance.

In addition to securing the network, Nokia will upgrade T-Mobile’s optical network. The upgrade will enable the network to meet 5G demands and make it ready for future technological developments. Furthermore, the work is expected to increase the network’s cost efficiency. Nokia will use its WaveFabric service-ready platforms and WaveSuite software for the optical network renewal.

“Our intensified partnership with T-Mobile Netherlands leverages our deep understanding of their network while also ensuring heightened importance on protecting their network against possible cyber breaches,” says Nokia’s Friedrich Trawoeger.

Nokia’s security and optical network upgrade contract with T-Mobile Netherlands will run for five years.
