The news follows Nokia and Contela’s Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed earlier this year.

Korean enterprises can now opt between Nokia's industrial-grade Core or Contela's optimized Core solution, depending ‌on‌ ‌their‌ ‌business needs. 

"We are pleased with the successful completion of the interoperability trial using Nokia RAN and Contela core solution, commented Dr Soon Park, CEO of Contela. 

“The trial will further advance the growing private 5G ecosystem in the country and will provide new solutions and applications to our customers in line with their requirements. Nokia technical leadership coupled with our proven expertise will accelerate the development of South Korea's private 5G market." 

Nokia customer team head of enterprise Josh Lee said, "The successful completion of the interoperability test enables us to offer diverse and advanced Industry 4.0 solutions for private 5G deployments.”

“The interoperability between our RAN and Contela's core solution allows us to offer more options to the enterprises thus enabling them to leverage the benefits of 5G to gain a business edge. We are looking forward to inviting local players to our private 5G Open Lab for the development of the private 5G ecosystem in Korea," added Lee.
