Singtel and Nokia have joined hands to develop and trial 5G network slicing capabilities, based on a Network as a Service (NaaS) approach. NaaS provides customers with customisable services for different 5G use cases and applications.

The companies said that the NaaS platform will give Singtel greater control and visibility of services across the network while working on specific 5G needs of enterprises. Singtel said that the 5G network slicing trials will be conducted and tested with organisations later this year in Singapore.
