Tieto is the largest (more than 13000 employees) IT service company in the Nordics that provides full lifecycle services in IT, for private and public organizations who want to master industry change and accelerate their business success.
Furthermore, Tieto also delivers product development services with global reach. Product Development Services, PDS, is an organization within Tieto with a focus on RnD mainly in the telecom industry, but also aiming for customers within the telecom ecosystem. Within PDS they are working in RnD projects related to development of E2E Telecom Radio Access Networks. In these assignments they are working with existing systems but also in projects aiming for next generation of E2E Radio Access Networks. The telecom market is rapidly changing and is moving into more cloud based technologies which will have significant impact on the architecture, behaviour as well as the characteristics of the networks.
Tieto intends to evaluate 5G technologies and Machine Type Communication (MTC) aspects to support different industry and enterprise verticals. Based upon this their plans and targets fits very well with the goal of this project. Within the scope of the project they would evolve their solutions related to system observability to optimize the provisioned end-to-end services, individual network functions and infrastructure utilization.
Furthermore, they will refine the ability to simulate network characteristics for emerging use cases with new requirements on QoS, especially when it comes to increased reliability and reduced latency. Tieto will also evolve their test bed to simulate end-to-end Software Defined Network (SDN) capabilities and adapt it to an edge computing platform to support simulation of selective service distribution to the edge and to central clouds based on service requirements.
