It is one of three hubs, with the other two located in Texas, US, and Reading, UK, offering innovative tooling and automation, as well as DevOps-based cloud development and delivery.
The Nokia Cloud collaboration hubs include a multi-vendor lab set-up with cloud services experts co-located to help operators visualise, develop and execute their plans.
Nokia says the global network of hubs reflects the growth of its portfolio of services and capabilities to address the increasing demands of operators looking to accelerate their transition to the cloud.
“With the launch of the Cloud Collaboration Hub in Singapore, we will help operators in Asia Pacific and Japan select the right transformation strategy and build their revenue drivers and business cases for cloud-based solutions,” Girotra said.
“This will accelerate operators’ moves towards becoming digital service providers at a crucial moment when technology is undergoing a paradigm shift, anchored by trends such as 5G, the Internet of things and the cloud.”
Thomas Schneider, head of Services for Asia Pacific and Japan at Nokia, said: “The Cloud Collaboration Hub is an important development for Nokia’s data centre services. It offers our customers a full life-cycle view, with a focus on design, reference modeling, build, automated supply chain as well as on-site integration and commissioning. Customers in Asia Pacific and Japan can now look forward to developing and executing custom-built cloud strategies with a faster time to market.”
