Nokia announces strategic collaboration with Amazon Web Services to enable easier transition to the cloud.
In a strategic collaboration, Nokia and Amazon Web Service are enabling easier transition to the cloud with Amazon Web Services. AWS will accelerate migration of service provider applications to the cloud while driving digital innovation for large enterprise customers. The scope of this collaboration includes the following:
